In fact, Bugsys did cancel their $1/2 Million Promotion.
BUT--They did not cancel until (Im pretty sure) all the participants (or most of them) had qualified for the trip and the Tourny. They reached substantial cash settlements with all of the finalists ($80K comes to mind but that figure could be wrong)--but whatever the figure, my understanding from the community that was in the know, was that the players were happy with the outcome.
Many players were unhappy with the cancelation, and they received so much grief in the Forum, they closed the Forum Down. While they may have Props (I dont know--but most 2nd Tier sites do) it is a pretty small site, so you are gonna see the same people time and again and they generally are quite a friendly lot.
I play there and I dont have a problem..they aint going broke for sure from my understanding from sources that know these things.
Enough for me to keep them as an affiliate and recommend it to people who like small, cozy friendly games (but where u can win money)
