Had same "problem". Fixed it by seating myself on my usual preferred seat where my own HUD stats were located.

Meanwhile reselected my preferred seats and all was good again.

No need to blow this out of proportion. just a small bug.

Poor guys cannot play without HUD ? I hope this get removed from the game as soon as possible ...Regs gets even more edge against recs and this is what really is against ecosystem in poker not rakeback....

Getting rid of them completely is dumb, this isn't live poker, nor should it be. But the fact that Stars hasn't banned third party ones and made a generic, fully integrated one by now is silly too. Then everyone would be on the same playing field and a handful of key stats still available for people playing many tables, but the advanced stats would be gone. Good multi-tablers are gonna make bank anyway, we don't need to give them even more advantages, I agree with that. But it's the type of innovation that would've come pre-Amaya, now is less likely. Maybe partypoker would consider it in their software roll outs.

I think you're talking about cash games though?

Nah, not a major issue, just another annoying thing which is added to all the other annoying Stars issues. Means I'll be playing on fewer tables though, so their loss...
(I'm not a reg, but why would anyone not play with a HUD when 'everyone else' is)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Late registration for big tourneys and payouts was reduced a little bit for the best.Still hope for 2-3 % more reduction for payouts...And i cannot understand in hypers where variance is bigger theres 13-15% payouts but in big wheres more easy to be in the money the payouts are 17-18% and the rake is bigger so less money to prizepool....also this is many years long and not changed i cannot understand how turbos in sng have less rake but in MTT dont have less rake ..why? variance in mtt turbos is even much bigger...

Yes please!

I used to play a lot of 5 card draw tourneys in the past years. But now there's only $3 PKO-s!? Why were the $11 PL/NL Draw Progressives taken out? They were doing really good.

My suggestions to add:

$22 Daily PL 5-Card Draw $750 GTD (somewhere between $4,4 PL Draw PKO and $11 PL Draw)
$22 Daily NL 5-Card Draw $750 GTD (if they would start on similar time, it would make more people to come and play both)
$11 PL 5-Card Draw (Turbo) $500 GTD
$16,50 NL 5-Card Draw (Hyper-Turbo) $500 GTD (NL Draw is great in a hyper format)

The additions of these might help this classic game not die in a very soon future.

I only play mtts and view this as perfect thread to poke fun at stars crap promo.

On a side note they never do any of the good ideas mentioned in this thread so i could of typed (dog crap) 100 times and it would be more productive to this thread than your comment

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Hey everyone,

Nothing specific in the way of announcements, but it has been too long since my last multi-quote, so here goes.

Any post-mortem feedback on this? Day 1 ended with a reasonable number of players, and Day 2 lasted for six hours. If I had to guess, most people would prefer large-field promotional tournaments to run over multiple days.

Imo a 33-55$ phase would be success only in short term and would suffer really fast to reach a good guarantee.

Maybe you could do every month one 22-55$ phase instead the 11$. Like the second sunday every month( I guess thats when people have more money)
I agree with the assessment that player interest simply declined over time as they became familiar with it. I don't think it is a bad tournament, but some change is required. I'd like to take further feedback on this with the caveat that no changes will occur this month. In the meantime, enjoy the overlay.

Unfortunately, we can't fix this without development, which needs to be spec'd, prioritized, and so on before being implemented, so I prefer changing the tournaments in line with our current capabilities. We've change them so that Zoom dealing ends with nine players - has this helped?

I like your idea, but with the events we have on the horizon, there isn't room to properly introduce a new Major in the short term. Give me a bit of time with this one.

Players were able to win more than one seat. Just so you all know where I stand on this, we'll continue to test the functionality to allow players to win only one seat via satellites. It was not used for High Rollers because we were unsure how many players would be participating, and wanted to ensure that satellites would start.

Unfortunately we don't have the functionality to do Progressive KO Phase or Time tournaments. I'm not sure how big the audience for this would be, but maybe some others can chime in with an opinion.

Maybe its just me but a 1 seat gtd sat doesnt even make me think about regging it.
We took a look at this, and participation has dwindled every week since it was introduced. Perhaps High Rollers hurt it and it will bounce back this weekend. We'll keep an eye on it.

Would like to play on the week some sats for a Live Qualifier or now highroller MTT fe that runs on Sunday. Not to have filling up my normal schedule with a lots of sats
Even i think i would play more of them.
Satellite offerings are purely based on demand. When it comes to tournaments like the Sunday Million or Sunday Storm, enough players are interested in playing the events on a weekly basis to drive satellite play all week long. However, if we wanted to run satellites to a weekend tournament (such as the Sunday High Roller) on a Monday, there is a high likelihood of the satellite cancelling. There is obviously a very wide range of possibilities in between those two examples, and we're constantly altering our satellite offerings to meet changes in demand. The overarching point here is that demand shapes the offering, not the other way around.

FML.

I will give pokerstars cred for one thing, and that is the daily marathon. I really like that tournament and basically play it on a daily basis nowadays (80% itm in that tourney only, lool)
As discussed earlier in this thread, we'll take a look at the Biggers once they've run for a period of time.

Glad you like the Daily Marathon.

Thanks for pointing this out. We've reduced late registration in the $109 and $215 Monday 6-Max tournaments by 15 minutes.

This tournaments has such a long late reg, that the formats of last minute sats you've set up don't really make sense to me.
Thanks for the feedback. Just as an FYI, if you played a High Rollers event and have English as your primary language, you will have received an email from me yesterday asking for feedback. Don't hesitate to let me know what changes you'd make for next time!

The interesting thing was, the guy wants to negotiate and — surprise! — cannot access to the chat. Chat window was somehow inactive for him, not allowing to put a mouse pointer to start typing.

He gets pretty nervous with this turn of event and accidently approved a deal with ICM numbers suggested by PS. So we'll never know if there's no the option to actually discuss a deal since now or he just can't find and access.

Can anyone who recently chop something on PS confirm or dispose?
What you saw was our automated deal tool, which is currently being tested in the Bigs. It offers two options: even chop or ICM. Most deals on PokerStars are even chops, and we prefer ICM as the fairest option for other deals.

We plan on rolling this out to many tournaments, but not all. Tournaments like the Sunday Million, Storm, and *COOPs will likely use the old deal options.

Thanks.
Late registration was recently reduced in Bigs $82 and below and a handful of other tournaments to combat stalling. I've checked to confirm registration in this tournament closed at 12:00 CET as intended.

+1

Why not just get a ticket instead of getting direct registered into the tournament. Same for Daily tournaments! When you win a BB33 satelitte, why cant we just get a ticket so that we can choose when to use it?
