NEWSFLASH, this isn't the old Stars, a sit out wont work. They have happened before and the old Stars took notice, this time they'll just lock and ban your account for an unspecified length of time and tell you to go F yourself.

Just so everyone who will do this are aware of it: You will be temporarily (or worse) banned by stars for doing this.

Boycotting the SM would be more powerful but I think it'd be very hard to succeed.
they pbb change the GTD to 50k when they know about this.

re: Don't Give In To Amaya(5th of November Protest)

sit outs have not really worked in the past. I know there is enough people in the poker community that we can do damage to poker stars business!!!!!

lets work together start spreading the word poker stars is unbeatable.

so regs that are finding it harder every day to make $ should try and drive away recs and kill what semblance of an income they have left?

got any more ideas?

re: Don't Give In To Amaya(5th of November Protest)

I think that the only effective thing we can do is to withdraw most of our money from the site and keep the minimum required for normal play. It would be even better if a lot of regs that don't pursue some vip status stop playing or decrease the volume to the very minimum and move their game to some of the european networks temporarily(or not...) With substantially decreased number of active regs it will be harder for tables to open, for a good volume of SNGs to run which will decrease the rake gathered by Amaya and with combination with mass withdraw of funds by the regulars i think will create some trouble for Amaya at least in the short run. We mustn't let them get away that easily!

Try to drive traffic to the sites that we deem to have the poker communities intreats inline with there own. push the players to 888 or ipoker make some body else competitive and weaken Stars monopoly.

Really , we should all start with at least an email expressing our disgust quite profusely. Obv. other actions are needed but this would be a good start.

dealing with an increase in emails requires more staff hours. they will probabaly need to increase rake more for the costs incurred

Sitout is not allowed and no solution. Just dont play (produce rake) together on some coordianted dates.

its simple just uninstall software for 1 week, its not that hard, dont install till problems are fixed, hardest thing is getting the whole community to band together, 100/1 odds ill start taking bets lol, like i said just bend over and enjoy it while u can

re: Don't Give In To Amaya(5th of November Protest)

this is the dumbest idea possible, do you really think amaya will just allow people to join table and then break the tos by colluding and table camping

They will punish anyone that trys to severly affect regular operations.

The only way to get the attention is to use social media and the forums and have on a boycott on a given day or days. Or have people leave pokerstars for good which unless somewhow you convince a ton of regs to do so isnt going to hurt pokerstars at all.
