I did and it was perfectly enjoyable
Free holidays are always nice. The story was this: they had the iPOPs 5 which was a 135 Buy in 500k GTD, some genius who presumably got fired after CAPPED the registration at 2750, so right before it started the tourny filled up and people could no longer reg. After an hour of play iPoker notices this and the 175k overlay this was going to give them, cancels and restarts in an hour. By this point most people had lost interest and they ended up with a 190k overlay.
The iPops had nothing to do with the 50% 'discount' promotion though which they ran earlier where most of their sched was cut by 30-70% of the buy in. The geniuses at iPoker made sure to remove the 100r and replace it with a 30r, while they already had 2(!) 30r's starting within the same hour. All the tourny's got massive overlay and the promotion was booted.
