Seat Only satellite tonight at 7pm.
€75 + €5 Freezeout.
One €500 seat guaranteed.

Feedback is that the satellites currently running (albeit small in player numbers at this early stage) have very soft fields so worth a shot imo

Just a hunch ... but, people already playing sats may not be hugely impressed to see their play described as 'soft'.

They'll probably assume he means the other players.

Point taken, this was probably phrased poorly and under explained on my part. Let me clarify:

1. This is feedback from everyone I have met who has played a satellite bar none.
2. The MPN as a network has worked on maintaining an excellent poker room ecology for many years through its True Value system of rake attribution to skins and other initiatives. The network is very much recreational player based as a result of this. This isn't to say that there aren't professional grinders operating on the network, but as a % of overall play, it's relatively low in comparison to other networks. This of course means that the games are 'softer' or easier to win.

What would happen if you win multiple seats and/or packages to the event, will you be given the cash?

Hi,

No cash alternative available. If players win multiple seats/packages, they can transfer them to another tour stop or sell it and provide MPN or myself with a change of name.

Hope this helps.

I can't find this in the lobby (BetVictor), guessing it didn't get enough runners?

They're normally 8pm CET which is 7pm with us (you might get more runners if it was pushed back to 8 though?) . The next one showing in the lobby is 23rd anyway.

i tried to reg for this but it was cancelled. It was still in the lobby with cancelled on it a few minutes after 7pm. Strange thing was that it needed 3 to start but had 5 people reg'd for it so i don't know why it was cancelled?
