You guys realize if a tournament gets $50,000 in the prize pool everyday and they slap a $30,000 gtd on it, it doesnt make a difference right?

We're not asking for an overlay. It's widely known that tournaments with the pretty red $$ guarantee are softer than their non-guaranteed counterparts.

Is there a negative effect to adding a guarantee to every tournament?

Whats the point of getting rid of a guarantee? Its not like its costing them money to leave it.

My customers like to see the guarantee on the box. It makes them feel good.

I could crap in a box and slap a guarantee on it but all you'd be getting it is a guaranteed piece of crap.

Everytime I look at a Stars tournament its like a $20,000 gtd with $37,000 in the prize pool, or something like that.

lol, if you take off the 30k guarantee they won't get 50k in the prizepool.

If they added a 30k guarantee to the $22r, it would get over 40k everyday and quite possibly 50k.

They don't add guarantees to these type of tournies because the rake is low in the rebuys. They don't want to attract "fish" to these tournies since they would likely lose their money too fast.

PokerStars wants these "fish" to lose their money gradually over time to extract the maximum rake [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
