Hi I am aware that the rakebake scheme is being overhauled from April onwards, which is great. Although The main rakeback I have earned over months of playing are the tickets to the freeroll. I was told that I could not extend my ticket, as it had to be played the quarter it was earned. I see that there are no Freerolls in the lobby - I thought there are usually 2 scheduled? Can I get a reply on this because this is effectively reducing my rakeback greatly. Thanks

Hi @LLinusLLomu00,

There are two freerolls scheduled for the 4th and 10th of April for players that reach 100,000 challenge points in Q1 2021.

Hi, So will the 2 tickets I have now be able to be used in April, because I have had no opportunity to use them yet and they may have a shorter expiry? Thanks

Actually I'm glad these are going to be replaced by the new program although I used to make just enough points to play them every quarter.

In the last one I turned into one of the short stacks toward the end (card dead for too long and close to zero stealing opportunities). Maybe the main problem is that the average stack is way too short for such qualifier even before FT.   When there were only 8 players left and  I had 3-4BB and finally decided to push with KJ from UTG . With my image and the shallow stacks even for the leaders I was hoping for folds. Alas, the other shortie called with TT or 99 and the chipleader in the BB managed to end the tourney with his AA eliminating us both two places before the coveted package.

This was an essence of satelite bubble dissapointment only comparable to the Super Double Trouble 11th place when I was moved twice in the BB when only two tables left and those 3BBs lost for 4 hands were 1/2 of my stack - in these qualifiers often the last winners are left with few antes.

This is something worth considering when such valuable freerolls are planned. I know the change from April is going to radically fix this by replacing them with more suitable rewards.

However the super- turbo hyperization of the MTTs esp. nowadays is a trend which might appeal to the poker sites, but not to all the players. I too like to play few turbos toward the end of session (Multiverse and Atom are my favourites). But further going to extremes is depriving poker of the attribute which makes it the only casino game with + EV in the long term, at least for some of the players.

Just wanted to share my concerns about the trends in the whole poker industry. After the jackpot push-fold SNGs, the super fast R/A satelites and your own Banzai Bounties became a norm. Now the future of flip-like MTTs when you decide to click one of the two buttons or auto-push next hand as only option seems not so distant.

You currently have two tickets on your account.

One ticket was issued in October 2020 and was valid for the 2020 Q4 challenge freerolls that ran at the start of January 2021. This ticket will not be valid for any future freerolls and will just expire.

The other ticket was credited in Jan 2021 and will be valid for either of the two freerolls in April.
