Especially considering that the bottom 95% of balances were under $100.
5.1% of players had balances > $100:
$100.01-$500 “standard players”
< $ 10,000 “silver players”
> $ 10,000.00 “gold players”
...and, according to Diamond Flush, they wouldn't have their full balance available even for playthrough requirements and would probably have to deposit in order to play the stakes they were accustomed to. Horrible!
I can see GBT needing to mitigate the impact of mass withdrawals, but an element of fairness to the "top" 5.1% seems to be missing.
