      And for the 1 Millionth time. They CANNOT get rid of the prize pool due to Pokerstars regulations for the league.

              Eric,

              Not that I'm doubting this but where is this information? I do think the cash prize is the incentive for the donkeys who know they have no chance at the bigger prizes from the leaderboard. I would still play if it was just the leaderboard points as there is still an incentive to play good solid poker and the payoff could be even greater.

                Cyis,
                This topic has been brought up at least 100 times since PSO started, and I do recall PSO Staff saying they had to have a prize pool in order for League Tracking purposes.

                If you look at every League (Facebook and Twitter for instance), they all have a prize associated, even if it is just a Ticket to another tournament.

                      the point of the issue is not the tracking system, the scoring system, the point system, or the pay out....its about donks...which there is nothing you can do but be leary, wary and play accordingly thats all one can do...umbup:

                        NO $10 is as low as it goes It is what it is, you'll have to adjust or learn to deal with with it whatever your situation is evil:
