These high roller events are becoming the norm nowadays and it was only a matter of time before they were introduced. I am waiting for a 'super low roller' tournament to come out, so i can play in it!!

This was a nice new series at Stars It was interesting to see, which poker pros are playing against semi-pros and rich guys Perhaps we can see some tournaments in a tv show and the most popular online poker player. Get ready to rumble

These tournaments are for the professional players. For users of The BankrollMob will have to play satellites to try an entry to a tournament. I do not know if Viktor "Isildur1" Blom will play in these major tournaments. I do not think pokerstars banned them from playing in their poker room. In 2016 Isildur1 played in pokerstars.
PokerStars tries to regain its popularity and profit in many ways ... now they decided to attract players to high stakes .... unfortunately I do not belong to such players therefore for me this move PokerStars does not bring any profit ..... maybe they will think and about players on small stakes?

Yes this is interesting tournaments and of course only to those people who have very big bankrolls, because cor simple players to pay the smallest amount of $1050 is very very big money, not even dream about $10300. But therre is people who play from big money and to them these tournaments look good idea.

They are high rollers indeed with that much money for buy ins. How many are gonna play the 10k buy in for example. As the time goes, the tournament series offered from all the rooms, are getting bigger and bigger.

pochui my friend you have a nice bankroll in pokerstars. 0.01 - one cent is is a beautiful amount. This year, in March, i had 3-4 dollars and now i have double. I have not deposited anything i have not withdrawn anything. Only freerolls and few games with real money but just for pleasure because i'm really upset by the recent choices made by them.
