Default Re: PokerStars December TLB race!

Kleath,

reread this:

"However, the winner won’t be playing just for themselves. Every time the passport-holder cashes in one of the ten events, ten percent will be returned to PokerStars. The amount will be doubled for a special Frequent Flyer Freeroll. These tournaments will be open to all VIPs that are SilverStar Status or higher, for just 10 FPPs. Be sure to check the PokerStars blog for regular updates on their travels!"

Note it says RETURNED TO and not MATCHED BY.

Instead of being completely idiotic and doing something like this they should have just offered less packages.

Honestly, this is asinine.

Not much value to go out of your way to do this except for top 100. 101+ sucks.

Don't participate in the promotion then. If you make top 100 just sit out when they do the freeroll.

ugh I was interested in this promotion but there's no way I want to give up 10% if I cash in any event. Disgusting [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

You guys can't be serious [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Hey, I'm Stars and I have a shipload of money, so I've decided to stake a good player in a series of high buy-in live tourneys.

I just wan't to be sure that the one I stake has a good chance of making me money ... so I'll give the offer to whoever can win a tournament with the top 1,000 TLB entries from December.

My cut? 10%, how does that sound?

PS: Did I say there'll be no make-up?

BECAUSE THIS IS THE OBVIOUS ATTITUDE TO TAKE WHEN WEBSITES HAVE BOGUS PROMOTIONS.

Don't mean to be dickish here, but Stars doesn't HAVE to give us jack sheit. Any promotion they have is a good promotion, because the alternative is NO promotion.
