I understand the business decision here, and it's probably a good move for the long term health of the game to move towards bigger pots for the more high profile events. The payout for a PT or worlds is pathetic compared to other esports. But the timing was brutal. They're basically telling the players who grinded all year to earn platinum status to go fuck themselves. Their grand prize is nothing. You get airfare and hotel so enjoy your stay at the Motel 6 and don't forget to print your boarding pass in advance because Spirit Airlines doesn't let you scan your phone. It's actually probably better to watch top 8's that are battled between average Joes who took a few days off from the durdle factory to go to the PT after they made the top 4 of their RPTQ with burn. It worked great for the popularity of poker having everyman dipshits win big prizes.

I was pretty excited to see the top 8 with all the names in it but I couldn't watch it live. When I got home I completely forgot about the PT when I saw all this stuff about the changes.
