      Wow. Some of those rises are absolutely savage. Seems to be a consensus among poker room operators that self destruction is the way to success. ?(

      I mean other sites are still awful compared to Stars so I won't move there, but I'm also done with Stars. That rake just isn't beatable when you have 20% rb.

      id be prepared to say live but those rake structures really mess me up and unfortunately Fixed Limit for me at least is not really all that popular both in my country and online for that matter. But this is just insane rake changes to NL/PL and sngs. Amayo really is out to destroy the worlds biggest poker site. Theres no other way to look at it.

      Probably nowhere, maybe play some good value tournaments with added prizes. It is not like poker is even that much fun. There are a lot of thing that have higher ev than poker, regular work being the most obvious one. I'm glad I was able to do reasonably well in poker, but got to move on.


      (While we are on the subject of Pokerstars, I'd expect in a year none of us will earn any SP for Stars because they have already been cancelling affiliate agreements.)

      Because Pokerstrategy is "Professional poker school" and builds themselves around winning poker players, yet at the same time supports this new Amaya crusade against regulars. What does it say about Pokerstrategy to you?

      This is ridiculous
      I wrote update on this on my blog, you can check it HERE

      I suggest we unite and do something about this. Just complaining won't make them change their decision. Some action needs to be taken for Amaya to take us regulars seriously.

      Barry Carter wrote 2(!) articles supporting Spin n`Go.
      Pokerstrategy wrote article about how to beat spin n`go which is obviously not meant for winning players.
      90% of Regulars takes spin n go`s as huge step towards making pokerstars more into casino rather than pokerroom.
      Pokerstrategy didn`t yet write about rake increase even tho that is by far biggest new for regulars since black friday. And Pokerstrategy kind of writes news for regulars.

      You may not understand, that is probably because you don`t see situation we are in. If you were paying bills playing poker and looked up to Pokerstrategy as some sort of Godfather who look ups to poker players. If you were expecting Pokerstrategy to support your cause for years and when slot machines company buys by far biggest poker room and starts crusade against regs i am quite disappointed that all Pokerstrategy has to say about it is "Pokerstars does not owe you a living".

      that's the thing, pokerstars doesn't owe you anything, and if poker is your chosen way of making money to pay bills then again that's not stars or pokerstrategy,s fault, moaning in here as ivic says will get you nowere, put your anger towards stars not pokerstrategy is my point.

      End of the day, were all narked with the situation, but any decent player that knows anything about poker would leave the games that are effected by the rake increase and find other forms of the game were they can gain there edge, poker evolves and so should we. That's my last comment on the subject.
