      I dont know if any of you guys play(ed) it today, but when the first break came and the "Waiting for other tables to finish..." notification came on screen, the game stopped for like 30+ mins and didn't return. Instead, the table closed and I can't even find the link to the tourney lobby in PartyPoker at all...

      Whats going on? :s_confused:

      This platform is total bullshit. It's not the first time this happens, I remember once a Facebook freeroll ended the exact same you.

      Technical difficulties such as this can of course and do occur on many different platforms occasionally.

      A lot of the time it is some event beyond the control of the poker room, but I think the most important thing is how the poker room deals with it.

      As the tournament is part of a promotion Party Poker will decide what will happen with it, it could be rescheduled, the affected players will be notified ;)

      Partypoker are constantly having problems with their promotions just now. Who ever is in charge of the operations side of the promos needs to pull the finger out, the platform just cant continue to f@@k up every promotion. Blows my mind that a company the size of Party continues to operate in this way.

      I guess its only fair to mention that Party handled this in style. I just received an e-mail and $0.62 as the result of the tournament being cancelled.

      Handle this in style? are you actually playing on partypoker? One time there server crashed which is like a month ago, maybe a month and a half i lost buyins for more than a 100 dollars. I told them and asked to at least get the money back, and they sent me an automatically responce ending "We are sorry for any inconvenience... havent got a penny for it since. then recently i logged in my account which said i had won 5 tournament dollars... "Click here to receive them" when i did that it said that i couldnt participate in the promotion.. I played the bankroll builder too and received 44 cents. Very generous of them. Its not even enough to play at the lowest cashgame tables.. Yea, they are very classy!

      Atleast they do continue to operate, unlike some other even bigger company which stubbornly continues to not operate for more than 2 months, and will probably continue to do so for quite some time to come.
