Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Please, do a meeting with the board of directors asap!! Use skype, zoom, facetime, whatever! Use masks, but do change everything and go back a few years.

We need VIP like old days, Supernova! Supernova elite! SNGs and MTTs Leaderboards, etc etc... Quit the horrible gift boxes, quit treating us like kids!!

Believe me, that will make a huge change and will make your customers happy again!

Clearly Pokerstars are not interested in our opinions anymore. They only want to make a bigger profit, as fast as possible.

Whats up with every day 2 restarting 2 hours earlier then the day 1 time. People in europe will still be at work at that time by my calculations (I'm not based in Europe)

Not really an exciting series for me anyway. Mixed games are always the fun part.

They should take a look at FTOPS prior to Full Tilt's prior shutdown as an example of how people will just stop caring...

The only strategy that's even conceivable to me is they are running these series in the short term to try and extinguish the competition whom can't keep up in the short run.
In the long run it's just insane as players are punting through money faster then they'd really want to and will quit and all of online poker will suffer because of it.

jfc I just read the damn link and the writer openly admits in 500 more words then necessary that this is a hack series without prestige. From Stars's POV why be honest with the consumer? Furthermore the bottom paragraph should be on the top to highlight the benefits of this series. Instead in painstaking detail the writer states that this tourney series is expensive for the consumer, lacks prestige, and has the originality of a schedule to the point of getting a suppository jammed up our asses. Only then does he mention the very decent concepts to this series. 2 million added value is real. The hole cards exposed is also unique. But the way it was written is brutal for the consumer and ultimately Pokerstars.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Is there any way to stop the pop-ups offering you other satellites after you get knocked out of one?

Not sure if you can get rid of it, but this is the most annoying thing ever.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Stars has $2M added to their stadium series. & GGPoker reacted with $5M added in Giveaways for the WSOP online.



Stars is slowly getting forced to improve.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Deadline $109 to $530 Bounty Builder gets cancelled every now and then, missing the min entrants by a couple of players. If you schedule the hyper feeder (5 seats gtd) 10-15minutes earlier it should always run.

since I'm on it, the nightly same deadline $109 to BB530 has 5 seats gtd (50% less) and the same 14 minimum entrants with no feeder. I'd suggest lowering the min entrants.
also not sure why you have no mega 109 to the late BB530.

iirc you can get tickets for freerolls in those shiny jackass boxes and for the question two, I'd say about 12-18 months?

still the same situation keeps getting cancelled the past few days, missing min entrants by 1-2 players and feeder sat being at the bubble

alternatively lower the seats GTD (which should mean less minimum entrants to run)

You will get ZERO answers. I find it baffling that people still actually post here. You are completely wasting your time, surely you are aware of this. The good old days are over ladies and gents.

Wouldn't even mind it so much if the pop-up appeared over the table you've just busted but it always pops up over another table.

Apparently, they still actively review this thread and some of the suggestions have been implemented without any comment.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Issue. (railing).
Since a couple of days it is no longer possible to go back and look at hands after the auto-logout functions. You log back in, the tables are still open, but you can't go back more than 3 hands, if any.
Any suggestions. If none, PS, please see to get it fixed ?

Why did they cancel the 22 dollar mega sat at 930 am est time that leads to the 530ko high roller daily tournament ? What a bunch of fools that run this site.

They took away the 55 buy in and 22 mega sat to the 530ko also what is wrong with the morons that run this site?

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

I disagree, I think the switch to the 109 buy-ins for mega-deadline was good, although tbh I don't know the previous numbers (entrants-seats).
They also run feeders to them all month long, $11 and even $1.1 to the $11 ones, so plenty of chances to get in the 109s.

The deadlines were struggling though, I've mentioned my suggestions;
Either drop Gtd and min-entrants or start the feeder 30' earlier so it ends before the deadlne.
It's a shame to get cancelled so often with 10-12 players in (min entrants 14 atm).
Or maybe drop the buy-in to the previous $55, idk.
Needs some tweaking

I can never remember a time that the 55 sat did not run days that i was on but maybe that had changed over last few months and as for the 22 mega sat just plain stupid to take that off the schedule

the 109 mega has 5 seats Gtd and always generates more seats
did the $22 get 130 runners or more? (so as to generate 5+ seats)
if not then it's a fine switch imo

and for someone trying to shot take, it's a lot harder to qualify through the 22, you'll make it 1/24 times if we assume average skill
(just ftr if you are a crusher with a 40% roi you'll still make it only once every 17 games)
they also had dozens feeders to the 109s per week for the smaller bankrolls

having said that maybe they should keep a second mega at $22 buy-in
