Maybe because they are starting an hour earlier for the next two weeks and some people will end up missing them.

Which begs the question, why does Stars use USA time?

Anybody else facing this issue? Manually loading the tables?
On demand satties 1R1A never open, never.

Please fix.

+1. Spread the prizes a bit and let everyone have a share. No leaderboard which is winner takes it all (like Platinum Passes), rather share that money to players.

And I think that awarding Platinum Pass to some highroller main event winner who wins 6-figs or more is a waste of promotional money.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

presumably it will be said that nightly major tourneys are already in place such as late battle royale/late ST but I think there is room for a nightly freezeout tourney with a solid guarantee such as "nightly 55 (that Stars used to have).

Imo the night sched needs just a little bit more to be pretty solid/get more playing regularly (maybe a 109 FO that gets ~10k ut somehow)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

SCOOP leaderboards are just an absolute no brainer imo. I pretty much played every day in 2016 because of the leaderboard paying at least something to the top 150 or so but when it went to top 3 only in 2017, I only played the 3 Sunday's as there was no incentive anymore - Imagine this was the case for thousands of others.

Sweating those players in and around you every day is not only motivating, but it is also fun.

Even if it is only an $11 WCOOP ticket for places 75 to 150, then a $27 ticket for 50-74 etc etc - It is at least SOMETHING to strive for.

Please don't waste the promo money solely on Plat passes

Fingers crossed.....

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Would like to suggest a few tweaks to a few low stakes mtts in the CET evening sched:

- Move The Open about an hour later with 10K gtd
- Remove the $7.50 Deep Payouts $2k gtd (just not a popular format and it starts 15min after $7.50BB)
- Lower BI of $44 8max PKO to $33: im confident it will attract more players
- Move the $16.50 8max 25min later to where The Open "used to be"
- Move the $22 5k gtd one hour earlier. Think it will support a larger gt too, $7.5-$10k.
- Add $16.50 6max (WTB) 5k gtd approx. @23:30 CET
- Change $33 6max pko turbo into Variable levels: 5-6-7min or smt (5min till itm, 6 min till f2t/ft and 7min till finish)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Early payouts functionality could cause some confusion to your players. Imo, you should get a pop up everytime you min-cash like you get when you ko somebody in a bounty tourney.

Are there any reps for the pokerstars.ES schedule on this forum? If not are there any Spanish/French forums where there are reps?

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Any chance of turning the Friday Major into a Turbo, Deep Stack PKO (10,000 Chips w/ 5/6/7/8 Variable Blinds)?

Making the Zoom Turbo a Daily Event instead as it kind of doesn't fit with the theme of the rest of the Majors and can be hard to grind with other tables going, but is popular enough to likely be sustained as a Daily. Just a thought.

2-7 triple draw, 2-7 single draw, badugi, stud, stud8, razz, omaha8, lhe, 8game, HORSE

I would also like to have some other mix game, like triple stud, or stud8/omaha8 mix. Maybe draw mix (2-7 single draw, 2-7 triple draw, badugi). These are all working at WSOP

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

In case you've missed the other posts Luke... SCOOP needs a leaderboard!!!

I don't bother making any extra time to play COOPs since the leaderboards started sucking/disappeared and I know other recs who feel the same.

Bring back leaderboards. Absurd decision to ever remove them. That is all.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

it would be nice to see at least one heads up shootout and 6max/8max/full ring shootout event in every one of these series, seems like a bad and unfortunate cut.
