I was playing some SNG's when one of these came up the other day. They announce the table number so that you can rail. I think it was a 6max NL25 $10 capped table.
Anyway, it seems that everyone involved in the hand gets some kind of bonus (more than $10) and the winner gets double so obviously they are all going all-in $10 each. All that is except one player who folded preflop despite the PS rep explaining in the chat what was about to happen and asking if all players were ready for the hand to be dealt. I sniggered a bit but judging by some of the chat most railing fell over laughing.

Pokerstars keeps the lead by far distance in terms of promotions. They dont want just to be the first and most known online poker room on the net, they want to keep the status, this is already something like Coca Cola in the non alcoholic fresh drinks business: reaching the top and getting a way to keep here the longest time possible, forever if possible!
