Bill has basically all but passed, will take little time to effectively become law. I'll be surprised if Aussies are still playing within 7-14 days (likely quicker) :/

That's a great shame. For you and the online ecosystem.

Re: *** Official 2017 Stars Regulars Thread ***

I would never willingly return to the UK tbh. Am settled here and also wife's earning potential far outweighs mine despite poker always being very good to me. My plan was to be out of poker within 12 months anyway, for now there's still probably enough money to be made on acr/chico network until then, after that we plan to buy and run our own dental practice so this has just focused that goal slightly. Maybe I'll have to go the tired old trodden route of coaching ha, vom.

Check your emails regarding changes to rakeback. Reductions of up to 85%

Dear XXX,

Today we published an article about how we are modernising our rewards program and the new direction we are taking. The new program will be a fundamental shift in how we reward players.

We are replacing our current monthly rakeback model with one that will take into account a variety of factors including volume, stakes, frequency of play and net deposits. Based on your previous play, you will likely be significantly impacted by the new changes. We cannot give you an exact figure, but in the most extreme cases some players will receive up to 85% less than under the previous program.

We are mindful of the significance of these changes and the negative impact they may have on you, and are communicating these changes now so that impacted players can plan accordingly. The article goes into more depth about the reasons why we are changing our rewards program, and can be viewed here.

We’ll continue to update you when more information is available regarding a specific launch date for the new rewards program in your area.
Regards,
Stars VIP Club

Ho hum, notontilt09 just took down another donkament, WPT Tournament of Champions, this time for $381.5k

...And a 2018 Audi S5.

My favorite part:

Quote:
Weinman considered himself to be primarily a cash-game player for many years, so it is interesting to see him have this breakout year at WPT events in 2017. “I guess I’m a tourney pro now, this is kind of weird. I’ve always said I play cash, and that’s how I came up, and I kind of viewed these tourney players as sub-poker players to me. But there are a lot of good tournament poker players, and I’m proud to consider myself one now,” said Weinman.
$2.2M in live tournament winnings

...confirmed tourney donk
