      Hello!

      After checking out my cashier I've just found a new June promotion:

      Deposit any time with the code RF300 for access to our $300,000 reload freerolls in June.

      A deposit of just $10 will earn you a ticket that you can use in as many of the daily $2,000 freerolls as you like. There are five per day from June 8-27, and every time you cash you will receive a ticket to play in a $20,000 final on June 28.


      Looks like there's gonna be a lot of donkaments... It's definetely good for the micro limit players as they can make some money, but for the med-high stakes players it's not a very useful promotion... I guess the first place in these tourneys will be a few hundred $ but there will be thousands of runners, which isn't that nice. There will however be about 100 of them and if I calculated it right, there should be 5 $20k freerolls on June 28 so if you don't have a $500 roll to play $5 20k GTD this might be a pretty good opportunity for you to take part in a big tourney :) .

      EDIT: the info link is finally working, here is more information on these freerolls: http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/reload-freerolls/

      For micro stakes players this is still just garbage, feilds will be huge and even should you win you still need to pay then a ton more rake to release the money you "won". Give us fractional points or reduce the $.40 rake required to make a FPP. Just another reason I'll be sticking with FTP till PStars doesn't completely blow for everyone but the super grinders.

      As far as i remember pokerstars allows cashing out even without clearing the bonus, unlike fulltilt.

      If those tourney's fill your buyin is worth .10c

      I'd say that a pro would be hard-pressed to make $1/hour playing these - not worth it for anyone.

      with a 4k~7k field I think still a good thing for those who have a small bankroll
      10k+ should be very annoying :f_eek:

      The most pathetic promo so far^^

      The only ppl it would be good for is for players that have no money to start their journey in the online poker world, but I guess those ppl don't have the money to reload either^^

      Thats still a max of 50c buyins at best. You can play one a a time, since they only happen like that. All you need is about a 5000% ROI to make decent money, assuming such a small field. Worst promotion ever.

      I tried to withdraw today and was confronted with a warning that I would miss out on this promotion. I was then informed that echecks are currently unavailable. It sounds like they really want me to play in these.

      BTW, it is not documented, but by depositing you get 1$ bonus which is cleared by earning only 1FPP. So extra motivation to those who dont want to participate in the freerolls:)

      LOL donkaments... it's like ITM everyone is in push or fold and average stack is like 5-10BB lol. The structure is really sick... Anyways I lost one 99 vs A7s (flop AAQ :| ) to finish as 127th for 4$... well it's nothing for me but for a micro stakes player it can be quite nice (and you get the cash directly into your account, no need to clear it). Fun donkaments with good ICM training!
