That PokerStars Blogger Freeroll Thing

I didn’t last very long, but I wasn’t really trying.  Don’t see how they expect you to play it sensibly really when there’s over 2200 players registered but only about half actually turn up.  I thought Stars had started to prevent such freeroll stupidity now by only allowing registration up to 1 hour before kick off but for this they registered everyone automatically just for showing interest.  Four idle players at a table was not unusual.

In fairness, I shouldn’t have been allowed to play so I contributed to the farce.  You can see that my blog has only been running about 3 weeks, when their entry requirement was 3 months of regular posts.  But it turns out they didn’t actually impose any entry criteria at all, so it’s basically just a monster freeroll where you just have to make a little more effort to get a seat than clicking "register".
