AH yeah i forgot, according to the gaming commission poker is gambling and hence u cant make money on the long term. Forgot...
Tournaments aren't poker.
Also, while I find it terrible for cash game players and really feel sorry for you guys, there is some logic to it. You need 9 players to start a 9man tournament, you don't need 9 people to start a full ring cash game table, people can sit in and start playing until the table is full.
I think PS had a very big data report on the effect of seperating the player pools and it probably was really ugly for SNGs/tourneys(almost didn't run anymore), while cash tables were much less affected. Though this would be for France and Italy, both way bigger than Belgium and the game is more popular over there.
