Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars STT Suggestion Thread ***

The 9-max hyper ecosystem seems to be progressing with more people adding the $30s (moving both up from the $7s, and down/lateral from other games/buyins).

Don't know what numbers Stars looks at to make their decisions, but if you add a $15 9-max hyper that's going to pop IMO. Like a lot more than it would have a month or two ago.

Im kinda hopeful of the server restart. If you add 15s ill promise to grind them straight for 24 hours.

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars STT Suggestion Thread ***

We're currently working to identify the new Sit & Go Tournaments Manager. I expect to have more clarity on this within a week or two. If we don't have this person identified by next week, I will return to this thread and answer questions. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

Questions or comments about satellites (including Steps) can be made in this thread:

to be addressed by BryanS-PS.

^Thats all fine, so hopefully we get some answers, else a mod should pretty much lock this thread up as it seem pointless to keep asking and not getting any answers!

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars STT Suggestion Thread ***

how about when you're playing satellites with fpp's you should always be awarded the ticket rather than automatically registered into that tourney? As if games over-run or take longer than expected you're stuck in the tournament? even a little pop up box asking if you'd like to go straight into that tournament would be more useful.

love it! (although the overrun is often on purpose so people cannot unregister, so i am sure this will not be picked up...)

The whole point of satellites is to allow the chance of winning entry to the target tournament for a reduced buyin. It is not the point of satellites to offer tickets which are redeemable for cash.


And why does everyone moan about Stars not responding to the thread, when clearly many people don't read it even on the rare occasions when Stars reps do post..... As Steve keeps saying, all this MTT stuff, including satellites and Steps, still belongs in the Stars MTT Discussion thread in MTT Community

good work with the underline on the word 'not' that really got the point across.

'It is not the point of satellites to offer tickets which are redeemable for cash.'

actually... I'm pretty sure this is exactly what stars do, hence why they give you T$

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars STT Suggestion Thread ***

As a general point to steps and satellites, i tried to ask things about it in the MTT forum and nobody there cares about it... it comes up time and again with some interest in this thread and in the MTTSNG thread and its always redirected to the MTT forum where nobody cares for it... Maybe the MTT rep could come over in one of the other forums where people apparently are interested in this?

It also makes perfect sense, an MTT grinder buys into the MTT he wants to play... satellites are there to attract people who would normaly not buy into the advertised tournament... probably stt and mttsng players? Or maybe there could be a new thread dedicated to Steps and Satellites???

Is it a full gone conclusion that they won't be bringing in $15/9 hypers or is it still in the air?

I know JD is good at no ante apparently but I think that PS hyper format (the cash one, not the sat one) is a very good structure. If they wanted to make FTP have more degen sngs, they should just make the levels 1min instead of 2 or whatever.
