Saw some posts on 2+2 about it. Some annoyed people.

Excellent value tournament now though.

Woah

I wonder if they reserve the right to alter the prizes if there's a clerical error like this - have never actually read the fine print

Someone posted this on 2+2

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us regarding the lack of late registration in April 6's Sunday Warm-Up.

Due to technical problems, T#880718390 Sunday Warm-Up had no Late Registration. As a direct result:

-Players who wished to register during late registration will not be able to play it

-There will be a substantial overlay in the event for those playing it.

We apologize for the inconvenience for those who wanted to play but were unable.

Please let us know if we can assist you further.

Regards,

PokerStars Support Team

In addition to wanting to serve as many customers as possible with their planned Sunday tournament schedule, there is also a 'small' financial motivation to ensure this isn't repeated in our other tournaments later today.
In answer to a question on whether they will honour it.

He's saying that they don't want to be gifting players another overlay in the other big guarantee games today.

There's never an overlay on Pokerstars - FACT.

Wow, such a tiny little oversight - such a $ impact! Hope this doesn't mean there's going to be fewer microstakes promos over the next little while, like the shootout this week for free Sunday Storm tickets ...
