  • Tourneys broken?

    I registered for the 10am EST 100K Depositors Freeroll today, and when the tourney began all players were marked as sitting out and they are all sitting out still, so everyone is just folding around the table. I noticed this is happening in a lot of tourneys that just started. I'd be pissed if I paid a buy in and this happened.

    I tried logging out and back in, and now I can't even log into the client anymore.

    Something is wrong for sure.

        I tried to open the cashier but it wouldn't open, so I restarted the client and I can't log in either. Hope they fix it quickly. ....

                  I did see a moderator in chat say that due to internet routing issues some people are having trouble logging in.

                    Now in the 100K freeroll, I am seeing some disconnected players being "treated as All in" when they fail to reconnect. One guy has over 2000 chips and it says "All in" for him even though he has put no chips in the pot. He still has his cards too. Not sure why this is happening, usually disconnected players go to sitting out status when they fail to reconnect.

                        Yes, I emailed support and this is their reply:


                        Thank you for contacting PokerStars.

                        PokerStars is currently experiencing some problems with players logging in,
                        create accounts, review their cashier, amongst others. We are reviewing the
                        situation and we hope to have this fixed shortly.

                        We will be considering refunds for materially affected players. "Materially
                        affected" means you missed a considerable number of hands and lost a
                        significant portion of your chip stack due to blinds and antes. If you
                        believe you were materially affected by this issue, please email us with the
                        following subject line:

                        "REFUND: T#_________, $X+Y, User ID"

                        Where "________" is the Tournament ID, "X+Y" is the buy-in of the
                        tournament, and "USERID" is your PokerStars User ID.

                        For example, "REFUND: T#123456780, $20 + 2, KidJoker"

                        For multiple tournament refund requests, please note additional tournaments
                        in the text of your email. For example:

                        T#123456780, $20 + 2
                        T#123456781, $10 + 1,
                        T#123456782, $50 + 5

                        If you do not know the Tournament ID, you can find it in the PokerStars
                        software using the playing audit feature (if it does not work at this
                        moment, you can review it later on when the issue has been resolved). From
                        the PokerStars Lobby screen, select:

                        'Requests -> Playing History Audit...'

                        Please also be aware that your refund request may take a few days to be

                        We appreciate your patience and understanding.

                        Kind regards,

                        PokerStars Support Team

                              Hi Sand,

                              People should keep a record of date, time, tournament id just in case you have any further problems.

                              As for the log-in issue I have already replied here.
