pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

All pokerstars.fr cash game tables are blocked right now by players sitting out to protest against pokestars rake increase.

They are stating their revendication in the chat.



It seems to me that it's the first time that this kind of mobilisation take place.

Looks like a creative and efficient way to protest, what do you think of it guys ?

Re: pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

That is truely awesome. The French make me smile with stuff like this. They don't put up with crap.

Do you know why the UK has wheelclamps everywhere and the French don't?

Simple, the day they came out French men all started plugging up the keyholes of any they saw with superglue. What did we in the UK do? We grumbled and did sod all else.

Re: pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

Lol, this is fantastique!

Btw, doesn't 'ne pas jouer' mean don't play? If so, how did they get that statement to appear on their pods? Or does it just say that when someone is sitting out?

Re: pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

Haha they even have changed their avatar to protest.

Those two are targeting PS.





Those two are tarteging the french licencing authority (ARJEL), "m'a tuer" means "killed me"

the reference here is what is written on cigaret packs in france.

here the reference is a famous murder which happened 20 years ago, where the victim supposedly wrote the name of the murderer on the wall with her own blood.

Re: pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

You should have created a huge overlay in the Sunday 100k guaranteed instead : it hurts stars when they get kicked in the wallet.

While you are at it since I haven't loaded any money I cashed out, just shout from time to time "Where are the f...g FL games ?"

Re: pokerstars.FR ON STRIKE !

To be completely honest, not ALL cash tables are like this, because some recreational players still keep playing.

But still, there are A LOT of tables with people striking, especially at higher stakes. I am pleasantly surprised!
