    Free contest. Let's bitch about what we don't like:

    Bitcoins? Why not cash?

    You have to be top 100 to qualify? Who has time for this?

    Why does BigOrange get AA 5 times in every tourney and pavyracer gets 92 off-suite all the time?

    92o is a better hand than AA in SBR poker. Treat SBR poker like black jack, double down on 11.

    This. It's so lopsided from 1st to 2nd place. I wish sbr would allow deals in chat, but they need the ability to pause the software.

    I'd prefer more of a normal payout structure at least for the top 3 at least but it's their call.

    Going to take a lot of luck and skill. At a bare minimum we need more starting chips and a longer structure.

    I know people Say it's free and quit complaining etc. I understand that, but I'm a pro, support the site, and we put a lot of time into these things for one shot with 2000 chips and a crapshoot
