      Sorry if this has been covered, but a lot of the MTTs I usually play on Stars have drastically chopped their prize guarantees. Some (like a nightly $5.50 2 rebuy/1 addon with a great structure) have even halved the guarantee.

      Has there been a general drop in interest in MTTs, or have more countries banned online poker?

      Whats going on?

      Really missing the American market now...

      I'd be surprised if they started making changes that quickly... I suspect it is something else.

      Dropping the pricepools is quite normal in summer (And wsop going on) when there is less activity.

      Really? Has this happened before?

      I can't imagine many regs in the games I play are massing at the registration booths in the Rio...

      Yeah I doubt they would do this so quickly. Cutting the guarantees before seeing a drop off in players doesn't make sense. If anything it would hurt profits.
