It was a choice from the poker sites, not to host BRM freerolls any more. Every site do what they think is best for them. Now why they came up with this decision and what were the actual reasons we will never know. Just be happy that BRM organizing leader boards in other sites also.
There will be more competitors once certain countries allow online gambling. For example our country online has one official casino and no online official casinos . So there can emerge a big competitor in a country that yet has to legalize online gambling
In our country you can max earn 449 euro a month(something like this I forgot) with online gambling/certain lotteries etc, or else you have to pay tax.
everything is very simple .... earlier PokerStars freerolls have been quite a lot of them and now there are very few because there are so many people playing and they do not need more advertising ... they already know everything ... but the players are not on the PP very much so they attract players

I disagree. PS always had many freerolls, even though the largest online poker site in the world, they always kept many freerolls for their players. the drastic reduction of freerolls took place earlier this year. It was certainly not due to the number of players to be satisfactory. there must be some other strategy behind it. maybe, some study they reached the conclusion that the number of freerolls for players who became depositors was so small that it was not worth keeping the freerolls for this purpose. it is clear that the intention of the main freerolls at any site is this. a free sample of how to play on their site to get the deposit after a certain period.

How i wish they closed down PS instead of FT buddy u have no idea, everything but the software sucks on stars, not to mention after the take over, how many freerolls they killed, u would have expected they would do the opposite, but no, no FREE space for freerolls on those servers of theirs, so now i play PP which i have to say its a bit rough around the edges, but hope one day ill get to love PP as much as i did FT
Remember that PS did not have some juicy and fruitful free-roll system in the last couple years either, they had mid-weekfreerolls to get you into the weekendfreerolls where the prizepool wasn't even something serious. Besides the monthly star-rank tournies the good frees were all password protected ones or ones where you have to had your account linked to a specific site or country.
