I just had a thought on how to get rid of the none mobers in our tournaments BRM should change the freerolls to money added even if its only .50 buy in and keep the prizes the same as they are now plus our buy ins add to the pool i think most mobers would still play and i don't think the none mobers what play now will pay to play.

I think its win win for us bigger prize pool and less players too = less time to play for better money makes it more viable to play than how it is now.

Vote in the poll and post a comment on why you voted yes or no

I voted no.

The site brm.com is a poker incentive driven site. Having a game that brm.com sponsors that costs money will alienate the exact people who use this site for its desired purpose. Namely receive bonuses like exclusive freerolls.

I think it suits everyone involved to have those 5000 non members to become members and direct the traffic here.

i imagine in the event of a cancelled tourny there is a mass email script on pokerrooms. possible sening a friendly reminder to those in the tournies could help drastically.

Also as a community it wouldnt be hard for use to work together and root out the major culprits who pass out the password. Make a thread where sites can be listed in violation and if it suits admin they can unleash the hounds.

no matter what happens i respect as always any decision made by the overlords Smile

I voted unsure lmfao because one i use those freerolls to win small amount of money as i have decided not to deposit on stars or any other site. (for personal reasons) but i do see the positives to having them i.e the bigger prizes and smaller fields of players. not to mention the better quality play.

Hi, My question would be is it not possible to work with Pokerstars and have tournament tickets issued to only mob members as they do for other tournaments. This would eliminate non members from participating in the tournaments.

I voted yes, since its becoming really abusive (to many players) making the learderboards not interesting.

Only problem is for those wanting to build a bankroll for nothing... but since bankrollmob give lot of free gifts, no deposit, etc, it should'nt be a problem for these players to have a lil bankroll to participate to the 0.5$ BrM tourneys.

Also, it would be nice to have some reaction from BRM to this post, since threads about this are recurrent and many players are concerned.

Gl to the table Blink Blink

This would be right apart from the small fact that they are getting the PW from other sites and not joining BRM

i also voted NO.i like a freeroll for the challenge and any money won adds to BR.there is quite a few sites that allow only people registered on said site(eg BRM) to register for freerolls. but to be fair i noticed these freerolls and decided to join BRM and was enjoying the freerolls but all of a sudden there was a big influx of donkey idiots who go allin every hand with the likes of 2 7 etc. and i havnt noticed a big influx in forum posts etc.
another good way to do these freerolls is give the passwords out to people who mad so many posts the previous month/weeks/days
the big influx of donkey players ahas actually ruined my experience of what used to be a good freeroll Angry

i am not sure brm should go for one or other, the solution probably would be to go for both- world is not black and white only, so things shouldn't go like should we dump one format over other- imo let's go for more formats, more tourneys Big Smile

I vote NO - because BRM is the very nice play to build bankroll Smile
From freerolls you can (if you can play well) build nice bankroll without deposits Smile I LOVE IT Smile

It's sad bud true... Earlier in freerolls on 7pm was ~3000ppl and now is over 5000 and 60% of them is donks who think it's ALL-IN FESTIVAL... I called stupid hands like 86 or 35 several times...


PS. Like someone here wrote - we still waiting for reply from ADMINS - this topic should be interesting for them...

Hi.I voted yes,because it's not good freeroll for that small amount to many players,for that number of players minimum must be 5-10 000 $ reward,if is 0.50 or 1$ buy in it will be 200 or 300 players for reward about 250 or 350$$,then will be better game and prizes for 10-15% best players.
Freeroll like is now it's not for playing that is worst then bingo.
When was 1st leaderboard and freerolls on High pulse poker that was much better frerolls because reward was bigger and small number of players are playing,if BRM do added tournaments with 1$ buy inn then we would play in playable tourneys and leaderboard will be sirious like players Thumbs Up

This would definitely be a good idea because is almost impossible to play and win them with so many kamikaze players. This is it for me!

I get this every time:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to nsdstefan [Jd Ah]
nsdstefan: calls 4000
Souzzi: folds
KEMELO09: calls 4000
villasboas88: folds
LEXA 848763: calls 4000
Thal27: folds
proHbIpa88: folds
linaz123: raises 16000 to 20000
kisera21: folds
nsdstefan: raises 16668 to 36668 and is all-in
KEMELO09: folds
LEXA 848763: folds
linaz123: calls 16668
*** FLOP *** [Jc 7h 9d]
*** TURN *** [Jc 7h 9d] Jack of spades
*** RIVER *** [Jc 7h 9d Js] 5 of spades
*** SHOW DOWN ***
linaz123: shows [6h 8c] (a straight, Five to Nine)
nsdstefan: shows [Jd Ah] (three of a kind, Jacks)
linaz123 collected 88936 from pot
nsdstefan finished the tournament in 182nd place
