According to a press release, PokerStars has taken the decision to reduce the buy-in of the EPT Grand Final Main Event in Monte Carlo. The buy-in will drop by 50%, from €10,600 to €5,300. PokerStars’ Director of Live Events Edgar Stuchly commented: “We’re making these changes to bring the Grand Final more in line with other stops such as Prague and Barcelona, which have created record-breaking fields over the last couple of years, by giving a large percentage of players what they’ve been asking for – the opportunity to play more tournaments within their bankroll, while also making the Main Event more accessible to a wider number of players around the world.”

The decision goes to a massive negative impact between the top professionals poker players. They consider that this change is a mistake, bad for all the pros because the expenses are so high at this stop that it will no longer be worth it for a lot of people to pay for hotels and flights for a €5,300 buy-in tournament .Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack

They say that  it’s hard to make money when the buy-in is almost equal to the hotel bill. The point is: the field size may get a little bigger, but it won’t double in size – that’s goes to a prize that will be much smaller than past editions of  EPT Grand Final Main Event. For professionals it is a big problem, because their ROI needs to be higher to compensate for the static travel expenses during year.
