      Well folks as you may have noticed the entrance fees of the sit & go pokerstars rose.
      which is also new in this poker room is a sit & go nicknamed fifty50.

      Well, this tournament structure is simple: 10 players, but only 5 places are paid. Therefore, when there are 5 players in the tournament, the tournament closes.
      These places are paid in different ways. In other words, the winner has guaranteed the buy-in but then goes even added a figure by the number of chips that left the room.

      Turning to illustrate a real case:

      Sit & Go fifty50: $ 3.26 + $ 0.24 (fee)

      Final Total Awards: $ 32.60
      1st to 5th places will be paid:
      $ 3.26 + $ 0.10 per 100 sheets

      Let then the final accounts of the award:

      Now if each winner receives a guaranteed $ 3.26, this will give a total: $ 3.26 * 5 = $ 16.3

      It is left then the value of the ultimate prize: $ 32.6 - $ 16.3 = $ 16.3 to be awarded through the records.

      So if each player receives 1500 chips and there are 10 players, this will give a total of 15,000 chips.

      If every 100 chips worth $ 0.10, then 15,000 chips worth $15. (15000 : 100 = 150. 150 * 0.10 = $15)

      So there is still $ 1.3 to be paid.

      Who ends up winning is the pokerstars, which in addition to already charge a fee higher than normal just to still raise some $ $ $ from these values ​​that go "left." Besides having a dishonest conduct when he says that the amount awarded is $ 32.6 when it is not.

      Part of this text I sent to Support Team PokerStars, but so far got no response.

      [B] is not to usurp the pokerstars other values ​​that snake and snake in the way the players? [/ B]
      [B] Is not this room to take advantage of the fact that full tilt (its major competitor, or perhaps only) be currently offline? [/ B]

      Give me your opinion.

      Yes they are showing that 100 chips are worth 0.10$ , but actualy its worth 0.1086 . And believe me they are paying every cent, but probably they dont want to write that they will pay 0.11$, because everyone will start complaining that they got less.

      It's easy just add up all the pay out at the table at the end of the game and you will see that they have paid every cent
