PokerStars continues to experiment. This time, the changes affected the format of SNG tournaments and Fifty50. Time will tell whether the players will appreciate these changes or criticize them, but in this news, you will get acquainted with them.
The format was changed for both SNG tournaments and Fifty50 ones. Now, the minimum number of players allowed in SNGs is five instead of six. In 5-max format, the game will be held at the SNG tables for $1, $3.50 and $7. In other events, the usual 6-max format remains. The number of prizes was not changed, but the same cannot be said for the sharing of prize pool. Now, it is 70%/ 30%.

This autumn, PokerStars have changed the conditions for using the waiting lists. You can read about the changes on our website, but most of the players criticized them owing to minimal usefulness.
