So wait, you have to give up 10% of your winnings so that people can play 10 FPP freerolls?

You gotta be [censored] kidding me.

I agree it seems a bit marxist but 10% of your winnings off 10 huge $$ freerolls, seems like a reasonable price to me. I'd be happy as [censored] to win this because I'm not able to buyin to these events in the foreseeable future. If you were going to enter these anyways I can understand the concern.

It is just their stupid, greedy way to reduce their variance.

Stars: WOWOWOW WE'RE GIVING AWAY 250K IN STUFF!!
Us: YIPPEE!
Stars: NOT ONLY ARE YOU PAYING A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF RAKE BUT WE'RE GOING TO TAKE EVEN MORE MONEY AWAY FROM YOU IF THE WINNER RUNS GOOD!

Honestly, this is something PARTY POKER would do.

Rofl at greedy(they're matching that 10% also and it goes back into tournament prizepools) and rofl at Multis having a ridiculous amount of rake, both points are quite ridiculous.
