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).
