Got an email today, but otherwise no explaination availible (or maybe I'm blind)

But fyi: it's an 5300 main event ticket, 8 nights for you and a guest at (i guess official players) hotel and 329 in travelexpenses.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Yeah like 350+ a night for a hotel seems crazy. Although maybe this is std for summer in Barca.

Regardless, how any pro can make money on these live stops when factoring in expenses is beyond me.

It's pretty soft tho; The toughest challenge a livepro has to face is trying not to die of boredom.

Hi Luke, what's planned for July in terms of satellite offering for Barcelona? Can't see anything scheduled past the two ultra sats

329€ for travel expenses sounds so low with people flying from all over the world, are you sure this is right?

prizepool says 1-50 get 329.. that's usually the amount for expenses.

Do you think any pro would have played if he didnt make longterm profit?

Definitely. Most pro's don't play enough live tournaments to come close to the sample needed to even have an indication about long term profit.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Luke, please add a

Daily 15:00 ET $27 Omania FLO8 8-max [1K Gtd]
  • there are currently no $27 Omanias in the afternoon whatsoever
  • pretty much every mixed game variant has a $27 tourney
  • bridge the gap between Daily $11 and Tu $320 High Roller...
  • ... winners might be incentive to play in the high roller, helping to raise early entry numbers

Remember that Bryan had a Daily $27 LO8 which averaged 1.3K Gtd, which is quite a good number considering how late it started (I believe it was 18:30 ET).

How about never? You make it seem like they changed something but that ISN'T true at all.

More gamble = more rake

More rake = better?

Are you like paid by PS ?

All your messages are defending them and validating what they do every time. Just like you wrote 3 messages to say it's normal they do not compensate people who busted on the 4th after play had resumed, whereas it was a PS mistake to resume those tournies, which Luke admitted.

Now this post again. Funny how you wrote 10 posts, all of them defending PS.

So are you trying to tell me the Bounty Builder structure DID change? Or just that I can't point out it didn't when other ppl are incorrectly implying that

And no, not payed by Stars. Also your insinuations are factually incorrect:

edit: I see some of the people disconnected on my tables but it's no more than 1 per table so there's something going on indeed
