This looks like a very well defined strategy to prepare Pokerstars for the restart of FT. I am sure FT will want to start the best way possible, with extremely attractive campaigns to end with all the bad image of not paying withdraws and reconquer players. If promos are that good, that can provoke a little shake in Pokerstars, which they will notice in the balance. With a new promo, new money is going to win.

Well it's normal tournaments start to become more and more turbo on pokerstars. - Alot of people means alot of signups. More signup = longer tournaments... So a tournament lasts at least 5h+ ! Turbo makes this better for the people who only have 3-4hours. - The sit will have more rake in shorter time. Obviously.

Been looking forward to this for a couple months already (it was scheduled via 2+2 forum like 3 months ago already) turbos/hypers ftw Just a bit annoying that there's a lack of low buy in tourneys (they couldve at least put up a few) so probably gonna have to sell %'s to play the $33/$55s at least :x

will be pretty good but as someone already stated there is definetely a lack of low buy ins and the only low buyins are rebuys which i h8 because it is then turned into bingo as people have the safety net of buying in again!! and as for people talkin about FT i would stay well clear as the guy that is buying it is a crook, hes banned from owning another football team after what he done when he owned olypique marseille, also ineligible t orun for government and has been completely bankrupt, i will definitetly be stayin away from FT

Posted by xdomagojx: This is what s wrong with poker on pstars. Every damn tournament is becoming hyper or turbo. Hope they wont start with 500 chips lmao. I dont like that kind of poker. GL to those who do.
Yes, we depend on luck so much to win at that MTT. To fast reach push or fold phase, cann't enjoy poker. If we look for money is ok. Championship freezout more likely

oh right turbo's and hyper turbos's especially are the best form of poker- because it ultimately shows the real truth - luck wins it on the day...and i don't see big reason to sit 4 times longer to eventually be sucked out by nasty river...the quicker the better imho...
