Good luck, I dont think many people bother with BF/The Forum anymore.

There hasnt been anything mentioned in relation to the BF Masters 10k freerolls either, wonder if they have been binned ? Sure the invites had gone out by this time last year.

I just returned so i dont know hows been att he forum the last 2 years. But one problem migth be that people not got the same possibility been social as before.

Theres no playersearch at the software. If you multitable the chat area is best logged down, or else your tables are getting to big. At old Betfair I could easyly chat with people at one or 2 tables. With the ongame software i cant, even with my 27" screen.

Over the years I made quit a few friends (and foes) at the old Betfair, and some of them i am still seing privat. You can actully only see were people are from on the leaderboards.

Only few sites actully got forums, and I for one hope that the poker community still will use it.

Even if players sometimes are coming with angry outbursts on the forum, i believe the forum is an important tool to keep players playing at Betfair, cause of the social acpect.

Just checked the Players club and looks like the 10k live freerolls for anyone attaining Master Staus have been axed without any announcement from  Betfair.

Another kick in the chops for those long suffering regulars who have struggled through outage after outage to get to and keep Master status, only to find an advertised benefit pulled.

One of the few opportunities for the regulars to meet up face to face and feel part of a community.

Still at least those running whats left of BF Poker look like they enjoyed another beano at our expense in Malta. Laugh

well, long story short...

i came 11th for £1600

was a great tourny, bloke sat next to me on last 3 tables sat on day 1 with the minimum 15k starting chips and cashed for £800

if they run it again next year i recomend it, and not because i cashed, but because its a great venue, was really well run, and a lot of fun to play with the differing stack sizes changing a lot of the dynamics at various points in the game.
