PokerStars rolled out yet another major change in its online poker policies, this time removing the chance for players to earn multiple seats of their live tournaments via satellites. It will bring about a huge change from the traditional way, where players found satellites to profit their efforts past the initial tournament seat.
Even though satellites existed before then, the trend got popular after amateur Chris Moneymaker won 2003 World Series of Poker, who qualified for the WSOP Main Event via a $39 satellite on PokerStars.
According to PokerStars the practice for multiple seats by a player puts off others from a chance at experiencing what PokerStars aspire to, an enjoyable experience to its players that comes from playing the games live and experiencing further the poker world.
The players qualify for multiple seats so that they can occupy one and cash the other remaining seats for whatever the package is on offer, along with the spending allowances.
PokerStars plans to implement the new set of the policy of one player, one seat through satellite from the PokerStars Festival Dublin, where players can win only one package to the live tournament.
