Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/room/rake/

Shows on their site that rake is back to the original level for HU CAP, and you can see on the client that its down for SNGs as well.

I'm not sure if there have been any changes in other formats.

Stars has been pretty rightfully blasted for a slew of bad decisions recently, but lets make sure they know we can appreciate good changes.

Good news for once hopefully they roll backmore on other games, but we can only hope they change other things for the good.

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

but then they have not changed the rake for hyper sats yet either and think they are going to. unless they are changing there mind on all these changes in which case you would think there would be an announcement on these forums it could only be good pr to do that.

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

So what do we thinks happened?

Theyve suffered a loss in volume in these games that outweighs the increased revenue in higher rake

Theyve projected through actual data it will kill the games to the point of extinction

Its a trojan horse and shortly they'll be making different changes to make up the lost revenue

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

Perhaps they took away so many things so they could give one or two of them back and act like they care?

They listened to 2+2's concerns about the health of the games.

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

But I thought more rake was supposed to be good for the games. Don't they care about the ecosystem anymore?

This falls under "they used actual data to estimate what would happen to the games"

I doubt a billion dollar gaming company is making its decisions based on the assumptions of forum posters and opinions of players. Theyd be using hard data that they collected with the new rake if thats the reason they went back on their plan

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

btw this is something I said could and has happened, people complain and point out how bad changes are and sometimes that greasy wheel does get paid.

Re: Pokerstars lowers rake for hyper husngs

This was really predictable. Now everybody talks about Amayafarts' so called good deeds and not about all the other changes that still are just as bad. I wonder when currency exchange rates will be even higher, or when withdrawing won't be 'free' anymore, without any other announcement other than a chitchat here, while SNE's get some sort of meaningless mtt ticket or what ever to make us forget about that as well.

DON'T FALL FOR IT GUYS
