This is one of the most interesting news since a long time. A 2+2 forum poster posted some screenshots claiming that he won a secretly-hosted high stakes invite-only 9 player sit&go tournamnet at PokerStars. And that there was $55,000 in prizes, with every player getting paid no matter what's his finish position.

User hiding under "poiulkjh" was claiming he managed to win the invite-only tournament for $25,000, where the funds were manually credited to players account by PokerStars employees to keep it from trackers like Sharkscope. A lot of people claimed for the screenshot to be fake and photoshoped, but he showed a part of the invite as well.

Prizes were: 1st: $25000, 2nd: $10300, 3rd: $5200, 4th-6th: $2100, 7th-9th: $1050.

So, how to get invited to that club? "poiulkjh"said that he lost around $40,000 in last year alone. There are supposedly around 440 players in the club at the moment.

However, one of our Polish players shared the entire e-mail with us, so we can confirm - that the entire thing is true,at least to some degree:

There was also a promotion this weekend available to only a select few people in spins - no advertisements whatsoever -. If you managed to win 3 spins in a row, you got your an extra buyin credited to your account (any stake). Theoretically you could make quite a hefty amount of rakeback, but again, it was only available to a select few players - players they deemed fishes / losing players most likely by some algorhytm.

I find this whole debacle extremely shady, but it comes as no surprise: they have a lot of extra revenue now with the huge RB cuts, and sure they could allocate a few bucks to this end (i really find this whole differentiation between customers ugly tbh).

My favourite line is Bet/Fold. I bet, you fold.

Sure they have some extra money due to huge rakeback cuts. But if anything, this all screams huge desperation. I wouldn't be surprised to see stars tank very hard, at least in term of their high point, in the next couple of years
