Re: ***OFFICIAL PartyPoker Thread***

Is it possible to stop the reminder option pop-up every time I register for a tournament? I don't want reminders

Unless you were earning >100% rakeback the only disadvantage to you is having to re-earn VIP Palladium status after the promotion finishes?

Can't believe some people who call themselves MTT grinders are UPSET that partypoker has no rake for MTTs. Poker is dead, everyone's solid!

If MTTers don't want it then I'm sure STTers will be happy to have it instead!

LOL @ those that think 30-50% rakeback is better than rake-free MTTs. They must be levelling ?!

Didn't part recently cut a lot of their guarantees?

If they drop the rake on the MTTs should we be worried that they will have to further cut the guarantees if they don't attract enough players?

Add the possibility for people to pay the fee and get party points.

Geez, how are you guys thinking?

1. It's obvious that rakefree is more EV+ than rakeback. Rakeback races and targets you have to fulfill are good mental motivators for me and I think for a lot of people.

2. I am interested in starting an account in PP because of this. So that means I am looking to take advantage of the $600 deposit bonus and possibly the reload bonus they just announced. Will the rakefree MTTs make clearing this bonuses tougher?

1. It's obvious that rakefree is more EV+ than rakeback. However VIP programs and the barriers you have to clear make for powerful motivators in order to grind more and more. It's a psychological thing.

Obviously if the MTTs you play take time from cash games, the bonus will be that bit harder to clear. But MTTs have *always* been the low-rake option anyway.
