I think, they have not run for years, and I dont understand, why PokerStars still keep them in the lobby. They seem to mostly be used by greek players, who want to hide their poker money from the tax man. Its something about them being taxed on the balance in their poker account, and if they preregistered to tournaments, they will never play, then the balance drop, and the tax become less :)

It's a pity. Since 2017, I have registered at Pokerstars and then it seemed like that too. Thanks for the answer.

SNGs at high stakes have been dead for a long time. There has been no game for many years, just like HU are dead after the appearance of spin and go.

Indeed , so there is a usage for them at the moment :D . Just jumped in to clarify that whenever you have a 100 € score in PS , PS itself pops up a message box in order to remind you that if you plan to play a big tournament you can pre-register to it, so.... everything's fine. :)

I mean some years ago it was a secret tactic among Greeks but after a while PS propose it itself.

They have just redone their entire MTT SnG offerings in order to reduce waiting times, and all games with more than 18 players are now of the "on demand" type. Except those $109+ 180-mans, that have not run for years. These have been kept, and the only reasonable explanation for that is, that PokerStars actually want to give players a place to "hide" their money. So this is probably now as official, as it will ever get :)

I have mixed feelings about it. Obviously the game selection was much better before, but a lot of games were running more and more rarely. Now we have less games to choose between, and everything above 1$ is now a turbo. But at least games actually run, which was the stated purpose of the changes.

The changes came after this thread. :D
But no change in mt sng with high buy-ins. It's a pity ...
I think 45 max would quickly fill up ...
