Can we all agree that 'slug blinds' is absolute garbage and should never be a format?

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Yep I'm curious after what happened with the mini pacific rim a couple of months back whether we will get to restart. Last time servers were down 2 hours but they still restarted it but cancelled some other ones.

It's so random too. Main played 1 hand and stopped again. Storm hasn't played any since initial hang. Hotter $11 is playing but stacks are so shallow now.

Yeah i'm still waiting to be seated in the 2 micromillions events and the number of entries in those tournaments is going up really slowly. Looks like the people already in are going to get nice overlays if they can't sort this out.


Looks like they fixed it now.

Main 'on break' and Storm on break but 'manually paused'.
The $3 rebuy that was meant to start at 7:30 has been delayed twice.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Are they replacing the winter series with the blowout series?
By now, it's safe to suspect that all the previous employee's have left.

Now they have removed the blowout series and the freeroll tickets. Not sure WTF is going on with stars anymore.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Pokerstars changed the late registration on the mini marathon. Just shoved in a very marginal spot knowing I could reenter and then realise they have cut it from 3 hours to 2 hours 35. Scummy idiots, they should send an email when they do things like this.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

I won 530$ ticket to Blowout series via Spin n Go. After winnin I read the description as following:
https://imgur.com/SULxjVx
Great, so I can play todays event 04! - I thought. Couldnt be more wrong... Apparently I can play only main event in 13 days or satellites to highrollers...
PS chat has confirmed that.

This is completely misleading by PS, I understand they want more fishes swim in highrollers, but dont put false rules in description...

It says that they will be converted to normal tickets once the series is over...

Brilliant, sent them a pretty lengthy email a few days ago that max late reg is too long and being exploited in specifically the evening $11 vanillas to the detriment of early reggers and should be aligned with the Bigs (1h45m).

Not saying the Mini Marathon change is a result, they probably didn't even read it, but hope more abrupt changes are coming. 3 hours to register a daily tournament online is outrageous. Regging from the start should never be as unintelligent as it is/was in the Mini Marathon.

Understand your frustration, but have seen more small changes and understand they are not mass emailing -

I can definitely see your point about the $11 vanillas. The mini marathon is slightly different in that it is a major, and we do want to give all recs a good chance to reg it everyday after work and also give an opportunity for those from a different timezone outside of europe (such as myself) to be able to late reg it. I'm not unhappy about the change down to 2 hr 35 mins, probably a happy medium, but don't randomly change it and not tell everyone.
