    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.

    Excellent promo! Any changes to the final tournament? Or are we still going with a double stack to start and maybe some longer rounds would be nice! Thank you Sammy and SBR!

    If you win order a Bitpay card and withdraw it from the ATM at the bash.

    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
