MTT regs should be expecting rake increases very soon. MTT promos for regs are a thing of the past.
Nah, I had this promo as well. I think it mostly has to do with regulations and different markets. Same as different countries get different things in chests etc.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Please find some way to let players know about server restarts early enough. Theres actually people who have a tight schedule all week and plan their sessions well in advance.

24hrs before it happens would be absolutely sufficient

It hasn`t got anything to do with markets regulations.
First that was my thought too but I just find out they randomize who gets this promotion.

Any way to fix this? Probably the nut most tilting
This is most likely a local issue and I'd guess it's related to your user profile or where the data is being saved. Go to pokerstars > More (...) > Help > Open my settings folder and see what's going on with the actual files/folder. You could save these files after having redone your settings and just copy/paste the raw files before a session.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

getting a dying SNG to live is done with Golden SNGs and stuff like the 180man challenge you had in the christmas calendar 2015. But nah, I'd rather ask for a 20% rake reduction overall if we're wishing for things that never happen..

Dunno how to play poker on this site... I played $4.50 180 man and liked it - now they are "on-demand"... Sometimes played $2.50 90 man 3-5 per session and they are so good - now they killed them lol.
Pokerstars in 2020 year: slots, spin and go, sport bets, all MTTs are hyper now with 20% rake and 75% KO, cash only 3-max with 15% rake. And I forgot about MTSNG, oh wait.. what is MTSNG?

P.S.: Asked Luke many times about changes in $2.50 90 man because they are running 3-5 per session only. What did he do? Just killed them! Solved a problem!
Good job Luke! Really great job! I appreciate your effort.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

A popup in the client 1 day in advance would be better. Or maybe put the slogan into any other tab than the MTT one. I had SNG open all day, did not check my emails the day before and was not prepared for it too.

Does anyone have any prizepools and old payout-tables from the flagships, like 2-3 years ago?

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Sunday Million for reference

October 6, 2014
990/6560 cash for at least $302
18th place gets 3674, 9th gets 10,1698
1st 199,555
2nd 147,600
3rd 104,960
9th 10,168
18th 3,674
990th 302

October 8, 2017
1052/5832 cash for at least $335.57

1st 157,485
2nd 110,514
3rd 77,555
9th 9,263
17th 4,562
1052nd 335

15% paid in 2014 vs. 18% paid in 2017
Top 3 got 34.4% vs. 29.6%

* A stars competitor with a competing $215 flagship paid out 12.5% of their field, with a min cash of $515, allotting 36% of the prize pool to the top 3! I find this to be a lot more exciting/rewarding than the Stars offering.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Oh! you reminded me about screenshots, FTP was even crazier back in the day, sorry about hidden brags:

FTP used to have even more than 50% of the prizepool for top 3:

Even in a massive tournament it was almost 40% for top 3:
