I mean you already get to win some bounties to cover your buy-ins during the tourney, expecting a bit more than that for finishing 2nd or 3rd out of 2000 runners is just greed.

I wish you luck in getting this changed. Maybe you could boycott Stars and play on PartyPoker instead... oh wait... they use equal payouts too. I think 888 still has unequal payouts. Try there. It may take a while, years even, but don't give up, eventually Amaya will miss you and change them back. I promise.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Really do think for the big Sunday Million you should be able to qualify for multiple tickets in satelites as opposed to win 1 and then unable to play any more. Given its a 5 re entry format I think it makes sense in this mtt specifically

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Regarding yesterday´s crash, I received a tournament refund for the Bounty Builder $16.50 I was playing, but the refund they sent just seems wrong:

"Tournament #2815508592 has been cancelled due to technical reasons.

When a tournament is cancelled, and players have already reached the money, we refund each player their tournament fee, and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula:

- each player receives the minimum prize not yet awarded at the time of cancellation
- the remainder of the award pool distributed proportionally according to the chip count

At the time of cancellation there were 214 players remaining, and your chip count was 198,762.00. Total chips in play were 18,580,000.00. The remaining prize pool was USD 23,515.33 and the minimum prize was USD 28 .72.

Prize pool to be divided equally: USD 28.72 * 214 = USD 6,146.08
Prize pool to be divided based on chip count: USD 23,515.33 - USD 6,146 .08 = USD 17,369.25

Your share in money equally divided: USD 28.72
Your share based on your chip count: USD 17,369.25 * (198,762.00 / 18,580,000.00) = USD 185.80
Your entry fee refunded: USD 1.80
Your bounty fee refunded: USD 7.50

Total money refunded to your Stars Account: USD 239.08"


See, the tournament was already on the late stages (200 out of 4k players), so the bounty fee I had on my head was already up´to US$29 instead of the initial US$7.50, which they didnt account for

Someone please show me where I´m wrong, or else that´s a LOT of bounties just disappearing from players´ pockets on a Sunday grind

Perhaps they added all the bounties to the prize pool?

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

past few days exiting the client I've been getting a warning that I am still registered in X tournament; both times X was a pko 90-man SNG that I had already busted.
(btw, those are wrongly labelled atm as super-knockouts when you open their lobbies/tables)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Its insane how much traffic Stars got in the past few days because of the virus. Almost all tournaments yesterday have had a prizepool which was twice as much as their GTD.

Yeah the action is insane. Look at the plays:

PokerStars, $3.92 + $0.48 - Hold'em No Limit - 75/150 (20 ante) - 9 players
Hand delivered by Upswing Poker

UTG: 19,591 (131 bb)
UTG+1: 9,823 (65 bb)
MP: 13,399 (89 bb)
MP+1: 8,442 (56 bb)
LP: 9,665 (64 bb)
CO: 11,302 (75 bb)
BU: 11,294 (75 bb)
SB (Hero): 8,964 (60 bb)
BB: 12,352 (82 bb)

Pre-Flop: (405) Hero is SB with 8 8
2 players fold, MP calls 150, MP+1 calls 150, LP raises to 1,005, 2 players fold, Hero calls 930, 1 fold, MP calls 855, MP+1 calls 855

Flop: (4,350) 3 7 4 (4 players)
Hero checks, MP checks, MP+1 bets 7,417 (all-in), LP calls 7,417, SB (Hero) folds, MP calls 7,417

Turn: (26,601) 4 (3 players, 1 all-in)
MP checks, LP checks

River: (26,601) Q (3 players, 1 all-in)
MP checks, LP checks

Total pot: 26,601

Showdown:
MP+1 shows A 6 (a pair of Fours)
(Equity - Pre-Flop: 24%, Flop: 14%, Turn: 12%, River: 0%)

MP shows 5 A (a pair of Fours)
(Equity - Pre-Flop: 21%, Flop: 29%, Turn: 21%, River: 0%)

LP shows A J (a pair of Fours - higher kicker)
(Equity - Pre-Flop: 55%, Flop: 57%, Turn: 67%, River: 100%)

LP wins 26,601

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

@Stars/Luke the traffic on Stars increased by like 25-33 % during the past week. The majority of europeans & asians are not allowed to leave their house unless its for buying food, going to work or hospital.

I guess you could easily add a tournament series or increase your GTDs for the next few weeks. Almost every tournament crushes its GTD right now. This is a hugh opportunity for online poker and so far all poker sites miss out on that opportunity.

A lot of live poker players move to online right now and also a lot of people who are bored and sit around at home, try out online poker.

Or turn off the Aurora Engine and use the old tables? I just updated and it still is an option to do that. No lag at 8 tables.

@Luke
You could easily also add a "Daily (Saturdays) Duel" as well. The traffic for 3max & HU Zoom MTTs is going through the roof.

Nope, not an ape, just asking why you couldn't do that. I am in Canada, we still have the option to turn off the Aurora engine, so that's why I asked.

Sorry you cannot, it does suck, it's kind of pretty I guess, but terrible to run and use.
