A few days ago I read a thread in here. It was a guy coming with some of his ideas for the freerolls. He wanted the freerolls to be for max 1000 players. And some other ideas abouth lesser freerolls and bigger prices. I liked the idea about the max 1000 a little bit because then it would be easyer to get in the if the prices was the same. But then I thought that there maybe was more than 1000 active BRM members. And I think it´s a shame if not every BRM member can play in the freerolls. But I don´t like that there is a lot of players who are not members just get the password from another site. So my idea is that BRM can make it cost a little BRM points to join the freerolls. Not many points just between 10-50. Thyat way you could be sure it was only active members playing in the freeroll. I don´t say all of the freerolls should be that way but some of them. Hope that you can use my idea, or that it has given you inspriration. Pls give me your oppinions about this idea.

It's a good idea in principle, but I don't think it will work. Not that I know about how it works... but I assume something as simple as that would mean A LOT of extra work for admin. Firstly, how would PokerStars facilitate being able to use Mob Points?
I try and look at the mass amounts of non-BRMers as a positive - most of the time, the winner, and all other players who make the final table, won't be registered for the leaderboard, so it makes it easier to rank high on there.
Yeah you are right abouth the leaderboards. But I think that if it cast a little points to get the password you would be sure that it was active members. I I said before it doesn´t have to be them all. But I think that if you had do something to get the password it would hopefully not get shared so much. Because as the way it is now where you can get the password totally free people share the password. But I don´t think they would if they had to pay some points for it. But thanks for your oppinions. Keep them coming.

You know I can't play in these freerolls any longer due to the U.S. government sucks, but I wasn't even going to read your post when I seen what it pertained to. Once I read it, even though I can't play in these freerolls it's always been an issue when outsiders get to play them.
Anyway my point to your thread is I do think this is one of the best ideas or thoughts anyone has suggested. I don't know if it's possible since the sites in which the freerolls are on would need to support it I believe. Because if it was just about getting the password for mobpouints somehow it would still get out. Not a bad thought though!

ya because there are so many players getting 1st is so much harder but if u do that once in 3 months u can be sure u r at top 200 at leaderboard and only reason why play that freeroll is for leaderboard at least for me (if not finish in top 3 at that freeroll prize cash is very little as well it coulda be 0.5 cents for 114 players and top 3 gets more )
anyways about your thread i seen similar one before and admin says about all ideas no anyways
Maybe you are right. I don´t know how the ticket system on pokerstars work. Maybe to much work if you should get a ticket for each freeroll. Because I think they need some time, from they have recived the points here on BRM before you would get your ticket in PS. Personally I wouldn´t have anything against buying a ticket and then first be able to use it the next day. But maybe still to much work for BRM and PS. But then another idea I just got is that you could buy a ticket that could be used for a month or three months for an amount of ponits. That way you would be sure it was only people who had bought a ticket that would enter. And because the ticket cost BRM points it would be active members. And once again. I don´t say it should be all of the freerolls. It´s not because I don´t like it the way it is now. Just some ideas. Please continue to come with your oppinions and comments.

i think a ticketed event would be a really good idea, if you take the p***************e as an example you have to pass a simple test to qualify for a open event ticket, giving you entry iinto ALL the tournys permanantly. add to that the fact that you can qualify for their premier skill league, which you get a seperate date stamped ticket for. so if there was just 1 entry ticket that all brm members would have it would negate the need for passwords or could be added to the password entry format if they need the traffic to the site, which i can understand is very important to brm functioning profitaably. we are already given a ticket if we qualify for the top 200 leaderboard game, so i can't see how that would be a real issue.
------------ the blank bit should read P S O you et the drift
------------ tickets should defo b free though, in keeping with the brm spirit
A limit of a 1000 players would be the best because then yu know its mostly mobsters playing if yu get the password right when its realesed and no late registration i mean how hard is it for pokerstars too change the limit too 1000 players first come first serve on the previous leaderboards on partypoker and 888poker there was 500-600 players max anyways it probably wont happen
's a great idea but I don't think it's possible for admin to make pokerstar tourney by-in in mobpoints... but if it was possible tht would probably be the best way to get non-mobster out of the way. about that 1000 players max, you say it would'nt be fair cause there is way more than a thousand member but the way I look at it is that there's mobsters from all around the world and different country doesn't necessarly play in the same hours... plus, limiting registration would limit the multi-account registry I think

It has been discussed too many times so far. And the thing is since BRM things it fits their patterns its not gonna change. When you are giving something for free you dont have to try and please everyone

so many members support this idea but I never see respond from admin, or I missed it ? come on admin this site will be more active. That is your advantage ,too In fact there are freroll for us but non member play
Out of 5000 players usually at 1pm.et and 3pm.et how many are registered BRM players probably around 2000 the best solution is too use a ticket system no more password system or for the pokerstars buyin too be a mobpoint system= too 1 mobpoint buyin but i guess the work involved in changing the current system is too hard but if they did make the necessary changes it would be better for BRM as it will increase traffic at there site with new members
I got to agree with demodawggy and plea that getting a few more player in the money would only be helpfull for mobster even if the prizes get lower.. no worries cause it's the leaderboard that is important and is demo is sayig .. so many time have I been knocked out just before the bubble by an idiot playin anyhow
