if u are playing games you wouldn't normally play, just to clear mission, then this is most certainly a -ev promotion for you.

if you are playing them anyway, then its just extra rakeback and +ev

Not much you can do there. But you should have won both of those hands.

What I don't like about this promotion is that it's designed to make micro stakes players stop respecting their bankroll management. People with less than 50 dollars will try to complete it and risk a big part of their BR, which will lead to tilt and more deposits. I think it's a smart promotion from pokerstars. Smart if they wanna make more money Blink

But if you play NL10 anyways then just don't think about the mission too much and play volume, standard day in the office Blink

well that's exactly how stars promos work- either they give you $1 upfront and lure you into losing another $10, or if you happen to have spare 10 dollaros in your account- you are offered a one of a kind chance to take part in a promotion that can make $1 out of your initial $10 in a zap.

I know, won't be playing those missions anymore. Went from 0 to 80 bucks playing freerolls and nl2 later on. But lost 22 so, now down to 58 bucks.

Just sticking with the freerolls from now on, till my BR is a bit higher

I am done with playing this challenge. In last few days I lost around $30 and got of course 1 from challenge. And all the time I am losing with pocket kings. Today was 7th time in row that I lost with KK. 6 times I lost against pocket aces, few minutes ago I lost against AQ, flop was K 10 2, and he pushed all in with AQ, I called of course and yeah you are guessing right, J was on river. *Sigh*

ICE QUEEN ACE continues to speak wise words to us mobsters who continue to blindly think we know best. Listen to IQA she speaks extremely wisely and we should all listen to her wise worldly words. Thank you IQA for your spiritual guidance.

Well, Amaya have just put a suckout's tax onto everybody in this topic I guess otherwise how could you explain that many people here just lost back to them all the money they've got from them last year thanks to other promos...

i agree with all that has been said in this thread- even with the fact that polar bears haven't shaved their balls in a decade and two days more, however i would also like to point out the fact that this promo could have been even worse to OP if he hadn't received the $1 from stars.

Yeah, but if OP never entered this promo then:
- we wouldn't have this nice topic about trashing Amaya
- OP would have been richer with $19 and also without a nice lesson 2 be learn
This way at least we got something too.

As with all promos, you should look at what it's actually worth, and how that compares to what it would cost you to play.

This promo is worth $2.58:
$10.000,00 0,0020% $0,20
$1.000,00 0,0100% $0,10
$500,00 0,0200% $0,10
$50,00 0,5000% $0,25
$10,00 1,5000% $0,15
$5,00 2,0000% $0,10
$2,50 47,9840% $1,20
$1,00 47,9840% $0,48

If you have to play 500 hands at NL10 to complete it, that would be about a 5BB/100 edge, which is pretty good. If however you don't normally play NL10, you can expect to lose way more than 5BB/100.
