Most tournaments now a days are not rebuys. They are re entries. So you pay the house fee multiple times. The difference is you must bust to reenter, where in traditional rebuy you could top up. This way they profit more, its the only reason. Instead of 100+20 for example with $100 rebuys, you would reenter the tournament for $120 and they keep the $20 again.

Did not know you were paying vig twice. Does that stop people from going nuts like they would in a rebuy most times? Sounds like it would be even less EV than I thought.

You might think so, but some "regs" just seem to love paying rake...and racking up as many min-cashes as possible...which contributes nicely to their already -ROI...but don't worry, they have an "edge".


my apologies for the sarcasm, but it's true.

On a positive note, NJSCOOP seems like it should be fun, good luck to all.

Woot! Got my Stars account up and running. Seems that credit card deposits are usually charged as cash advances. I'll be in AC tomorrow. If anyone has a room hookup for Saturday, please shoot me a PM.

For the future I think it'd be better off having the PLO tournaments as a 6 max for NJSCOOP and the other future series

Re: PokerStars NJ - Official Thread

So, there is supposed to be the daily slots challenge going on right now, but it only showed up yesterday in the promo window. Also, I don't see the first $500 aipf freeroll that was supposed to have run today at 4:47 (I think, I know it's not in my registered in tourneys any more), but in previous iteration you could find it and see how you did. Did this actually run or is something bugged? (well, something other than it not showing up today despite still getting the message that it is running daily and to "click here" to start it).

How do I deposit more than $750 in a day without paying any fees (including fees to a third party)?

Thanks.

Use multiple deposit methods. Or request a limit increase.

Re: PokerStars NJ - Official Thread

I'd like to report a software bug.

When using a hotkey for Fold before it is your turn to act, the software used to simply select the "fold" checkbox. After the last update, you can no longer uncheck the box to undo that action.

Re: PokerStars NJ - Official Thread

Can we make a suggestion to improve the MTT's during the week? It seems like the Big $50 and the Big $30 do not start a lot of the time and for good reason. The Big $50 only offers an $1800 guarantee versus the Big $20 which offers a $1500 guarantee. Obviously its way better ROI by playing the $20 which is lower risk for almost the same amount of money to be won. Now the bigger buying might get less players which some may prefer but still, I think Stars could make a change to help them get more entrants as well as making more money for the site. Maybe make the guarantee for the Big $30 and Big $50 higher? like 2k for the $30 and 3k for the $50? Obviously if it ends up costing Stars money it would be a no go but I hardly see these two tournaments starting. Maybe I'm behind the curve on this thought process. Open to thoughts.

Suggestions are always welcome. Have passed this on to my colleague who manages the NJ tournament schedule.

Thanks,

I'm an iPad player, and the CardMatch has NEVER worked 100%. Sometimes the start button appears, but not always. When it does start, it never seems to keep up with progress. I'll see 40% match but only 2 cards checked off. In a 2nd (or more) window, I don't get any info. I'm pretty sure only the first table has been counting, unsure if that's the way it's supposed to work.
