i am not that surprised . played a few of this fifty-50 sit&go's and did not like them at all ... it's more profit for pokerstars and the players are losing on it as the buy-in and the payment structure give more benefit to pokerstars and you also need to finish with a maximum of chips to have some profit , playing tight and trying to survive as in the DoNs to be in the prizes is not awarded .
It's surely not a good move from pokerstars ... at least not for the players .

I don't mind what pokerstars will do with DoNs because I don't like them. It has no sense: the 1st one finishes with 7,500 chips and the last one 5th with only 90 chips; both win 20%. That's not pure poker.

as I dont play on pokerstars perhaps you could explain what this 50/50 sngs are, a DON as far as I know or play is say a 6 seat 20$ buy in with top 3 getting 40$ back?

10 seat - 5 winners, but instead of each player win the same, each player win a fixed part (the buyin) + a variable part depending on the remaining chips. It's fairer than don. See also here:

seems to me that it will encourage more aggressive play which is not the usual play that I have seen in the normal DON setup,

As far as I know, FT doesn´t offer DoN´s.
Never seen any there anyway.
Am I wrong, did I miss something?

And thx for the explanation of the fifty50 DaMessiah666. Blink

Yes, i know players who take profit only playing dons. They have studied the right strategy with great results ( a friend of mine takes about 75% of them). Search for another strategy, my friend. RIP DoN's Big Smile

I think it gives to reasons:
PokerStars can´t get enough and want more and more Fee
and it gives too much collusion at the DoN tables. At the Fifty50 SnG´s, all players need the chips to get more money.
