(what they call poker in Spain)

I'm reduced to playing poquer. Not funny no.
This is the current SNG offer on the .es:

And this is the pay structure of the "welcome freerolls":

The only "positive" thing is that they have astronomy freerolls with stars and constellation names, to access a Sunday €500 WR2 thing. I played three so far, got three tickets. They expire Dec 2020, which I guess is encouraging.

Lots of other things I find annoying, not least the fact that the lobbies "theme" is the exact color of camel dung in autumn.

The main thing I find annoying though... they have a forum just like this one - in Spanish. But I can't write there, I get redirected here. Much as I'd like to annoy the bumblebees out of them, about their offers and all, I find it hard to give up annoying you guys here...

Anyway, please say you're sorry for me :)

Well you still have it better than we US peeps do...but still that's quite a comedown from the regular Stars menu and offerings (and most importantly field sizes,with their consequent larger payouts,and of course bevy of donks and the like).

Sucks Don,sorry to see this. And intensely hoping that when/if US players get back on here we aren't similarly restricted (though I fear that could be the case ).

Question...are there any spots wherein you can satty back into regular PStars big events (like the Sunday Million,the Storm and seasonal stuff like the SCOOP and WCOOP for instance)? Or are you totally cut off on anything like that as well?

Well, if you are restricted (segregated is the word they use in Europe even though in your country it's not a word they would use lightly ;), on a US site, at least you would have quite a pool, and not many of them poquer players either.

And yes we are cut off, no Storm, no Million, no decent small-stakes tourneys either, even against the local bull-testosterone crowd, it's turbo-bingo-land.

Anyway, thanks for the condolences, I realise you have it worse, even though it's back to play money for me too really, at least I have the Sunday free tourney to play here, that's got a relatively normal pay structure. By 2020, maybe I can get my bankroll to €50 with those. It's currently zero cause I cashed out... according to the Spanish forums, there could be no money transfer between sites. Wrong, but I still ain't going to re-deposit for these clowns unless they put up some playable tourneys.

Another 10 years or so, I can play the €1 single-tables...
