Re: ***PokerStars Promotions Ideas/Suggestions/Opinions Thread***

This challenge was prepared pretty bad. There is no info about the payout structure for the leaderboard. Only that top 30 get paid with a 50k$ pool, but nothing is said about the distribution.

Also there is no info about how to earn points in these all-in shootouts. lol
On top of that this promotion wasnt even announced in the client.

U are right but actually theres info how much points you earn if u click on info tab .Total bingo promo as usual but maybe i will have luck for once in my life.I personally prefer more hard challenge which will lead to a freeroll with about 500-1000 people and prizepool of 10K+ so it actually will be worth something not the usual 0.25c-1$ value which is a lot lesser than the rake u must paid for completing the challenges .Personally they force me to play 10nl and im not a cash player ,lucky enough players there are still bad enough for my skill and i dont need to punt money ,but usually i think i must play nl5 for challenge since i play micro-low stakes mtt which correspondent to nl2-nl5 of cash .

I like leaderboard challenges/promost thats why i would play for it ,but if it was usual get 16 Aces or all the broadway card and get 0.25 -0.50 cents i would skip it since i pay much more for rake.

Youre right, I just found it in the leaderboard section. But it still doesnt make much sense.

For example place 501-1500 should get 5 points each. Ive finished place 1719 today and still got 5 points.

Thanks for providing the info that is lacking in the poker client. The info page clearly says a ticket will be given, and makes no mention of auto-registration.

@PokerStars Dylan or @PokerStars Michael J or anyone from PokerStars...

I wasn't exactly sure where to post this so I figured I would post it here (and please let me know if there is a better thread to post this in)...

Could you please comment on the links about Red Dragon Poker below? I ask because there are a lot rumors being passed around especially by Asian poker app agents. And, in turn, some poker players are assuming their deposits are backed or likely backed by PokerStars, game fairness insured by PokerStars, RNG provided by PokerStars, etc, etc. I mean I think the vast majority of poker players are mostly uncertain about this but the longer it goes on, the more it will be accepted as fact.

Is Red Dragon Poker a PokerStars brand and/or backed by PokerStar? Could you please clarify and ask your management to make a statement on this? Thanks.

PokerStars Michael J (aka, me) finished working at PokerStars around 2½ years ago. Sorry that I can't help you here, you might want to consider emailing them or something.

Sherlock at your service:

https://www.pokerstars.com/en/blog/2...a-177412.shtml

They mention the site
pokerstarsliveasia.com/ (belongs to PS)

Then that site leads you to Red Dragon Poker website:
https://www.reddragonpoker.com/en/page.html (bottom of the page)

Via a QR code down in the site


Regarding your questions.

Yep, PS entered a Chinese poker apps market.
They never officially confirmed that RD is their project but it is. (Links from their site lead to RD site).
Regs/Winning players are not welcome. Agents who bring winning traffic are getting closed (all funds paid though).
Non-Chinese players can still join but apparently, they are going to change the policy.

Prediction - PK Asia, RedDragon will limit access to foreigners to keep games/ecosystem healthy. It's quite rational from the point of business.

Good side - Chinese apps will evolve since PS joining the party. Hopefully better security, anti-collusion departments, harder competition etc.

But regs/foreigners won't be welcome anymore. A fact we all should accept.

Doesn't the Chinese government block HTTPS traffic?

a) No.

b) Even if it did, that's not a good excuse to expose customers to insecure websites.
