Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

The schedule that runs on server restart day needs to be updated too. Allow Bounty Builders on that day (both $22 and $3.30 which is scheduled before the server restart) to become re-entries. Convert $3.30 BB hyper to 6 max. Run TKO hyper tourneys, few more micro hyper pko tourneys. And finally once the server resumes, add additional special tourneys. Lots of special tourneys (BB, Hot) gets missed once the server resumes.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Just me or did they just recently change the PCA sats to follow the WCOOP "satellite qualifiers can't unregister (from $530 qualifier)" and to not allow you to enter satellites to that $530 qualifier once you've won 1 seat to it? I could've sworn I'd qualified and unregistered from it previously, but today I won a seat and can no longer enter any other qualifiers, leaving me with worthless $109 and $55 PCA tickets from Spin & Gos. This is super annoying and also seems foolish to apply that policy to this satellite considering 4 re-entries are allowed. I get not allowing multiple actual PCA seats to be won, but c'mon.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Luke, the Structure of the 2$ Rebuy at 17.00MEZ make not really Sense, better make this with the same Structure as all other Reg-Speed Rebuys (Daily Dollar Rebuy and the 5$ Rebuy at 19.00 MEZ for example)!
With the New Structure a lot of Players dont play the Rebuy Periode (they will make LateReg in AddOn Periode), this is bad for the Prize Pool and your Rake!

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

A+ troll from stars making terrible changes overall and presenting them in such a way that at first glance regs are thinking 'finally!'

- 'bigger' and 'hotter' = better guarantee and structure, NOT simply adding reentry. The former would result in people playing a bit higher on a Sunday, the latter makes the upper bi bigs/hots skippable especially with new offerings on Partypoker on Sundays (wp party)

- 'Daily marathon': people read this and think 'great', then see it's a $55 10k gtd with 2x reentry. Joke of a timbey which will die an agonizing death once people see past the blue label. Make it 25k+ gtd and MAYBE it has a chance

- Who hates 6max this much at Amaya and why?

I could go on but what's the point, I'm not even that long in poker and even I get nostalgic thinking about the old Pokerstars and what it used to stand for. Your site is becoming more of a joke every day and with other sites putting in more effort specifically with mtt schedules/series this will not be pretty in x ammount of time (you have an influence on the 'x' but are doing it wrong)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

1x re-entry > no re-entry >>>>>>>>>> multiple re-entries

Sure give people a 2nd chance to play a tournament that they were excited to play. 1 re-entry does not scare people away from playing bigger like 2 or 3x re-entry does.

Also, turbos are better as 6-max since you get more hands per level and stacks tend to be deeper.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread



indeed pls revert those fullring changes, I was always playing the 44 as a 6max, but now pbb gonna skip it as I have million better options than a withered regspeed during peak (and that is given that it does run lol)

edit: same goes for all the others like 44 6max from 2120cet

+1, 1 reentry in some MTT is okay, but more than that I dont think helps a tourney(maybe a rare MTT at *COOP series)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

PCA ultra sat allows like 5 re-entries that I don’t have the budget for but can qualify for through feeder sats. The problem is once you’re registered you can’t play sats anymore! I want to be able to re enter a few times

27$ 3m vanilla turbo $5k guarantee $12,500 prizepool

530 bounty 25k guara LOOOL 160k prizepool

all the tripple threats are great and more 3 max would be nice in the daily, but making them 3 x re entry is just meh, will never fire the 215 cos of this and i basicly campained for this mtt, this time slot there guarantees all got trippled at least, stop being nits and put guarantees up

this will prob fall on deaf ears so w/e

i usualy play 20+ mtts on stars on sunday...this sun i played 4

i played 15+ on party, cos it sinply doing it right, as soon as PP sorts its eye cancer lobby and software and adds some nice sng MTTs/on demands, your site is GG 🤷🏻*♂️PokerStars MTT ThreadPokerStars MTT Thread

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

I think the 530bountybuilder could be a very nice daily tournament, but I think it runs a bit long now.. If it ran for about 8 hours it would be great, with avg. at 50-70bb there should be some room i guess.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Not a fan of the changes either.

Specially making two of the most fun tournaments 8max tournaments instead of 6max.

the 16,50 6max -> 8max
44 progg KO 6max -> 8max.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Yeah the main appeal of the bigger/hotter was the better structure, this is kind of a useless change, especially since it will make the late stages tougher and less recs will win big.
The changes from 6max to 8max are stupid as well, those tournaments were way better when 6max.

The early marathon 55$ is nice but please up the guarantee, it was already well over 30K today if I'm correct. It will attract way more recs this way.

The fact that there is more (or higher stakes) PLO tournaments is cool though.

Disappointed with the changes overall but it could have been worse I guess. PLEASE reconsider the payouts for the bigs/hot it's terrible to have such small payouts at FT and so many small mincash

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Luke,
Can you add more 5 Card Draw tournaments? There are only 5 running at the moment.
There were great $2.2 re-entry NL and PL 5 Card draw tournaments running at the same time every day. By far the most people played at those stakes, and a few years before $1.1 tourneys attracted hundreds of players for this poker variation.
Any plans for more?
Thanks!
