Exactly why I like it, if people play it like a semi-freeroll, it should be relatively easy (given some luck) to money. And if you get a good string of cards, there's a good amount of money in the prize pool.
If I had more money, I'd play in a tourney like the nightly hundred grand, $162 entry, but the prize pool is $100k regardless. Saturday night, 604 entered. It's a $150+$12, so even with the 12 added, that would be a prize pool of 97,848. That means that pokerstars
loses money in this. Usually home games are better because there is no rake, but this tournament has a negative rake. I just don't have $162 to spare on a poker tourney. And I'm wondering if even fewer play on weeknights. I'll check out tonight's. It started at 9:00, ended at 3:30 am. Lot more willing to do that on Saturday night than Monday night I'm thinking, but I guess I'll see. If I win the Sunday hundred grand, I'll use $162 of that on a nightly hundred grand
