wow that's so bad for you guys. HopefullyI wasn't on pokerstar when it happened lucky for me, but I had this trouble recently with an other software and the rule they used was that if some pre-defined percentage of player are out of the tourney already when it crashe they pay the prizepool base on you % stack of the total chips amount otherwise, if you weren't already out of the tourney they'll surely give you back your buy-in. Still... that sux

I remember last year in December I played $10 000 Xmas Freeroll at 888 Poker. We played 20 seconds and the tournament was paused one hour. After that was cancelled. We were 8000 players, the prize was $10 000. So all the 8000 players received $1.25 each.

$1.25 x 8000 players = $10 000

This is the first major problem with PokerStars in the 3 years that I've played pretty much every day. That's a good record I think even though this is a pain in the butt...

S**t happens.... Big Smile

G'day mates

Well I knew that that the servers on PStars were going to be going down.
I noticed on the 7th that alot of tournament under the private and freeroll games tabs was all cancelled from like 23:00h on the 7th till like 10:00h on the 8th.
Also a lot of Sng's were removed from registration so I knew they was planning a server reset.
It was all people was talking about at the cash tables I was on, so I am surprised you did not know it was coming too.
Be cool mates and best of luck at the tables.

Ronin
