Why do they bother?

have you ever been playing a tournament on 'Stars when an observer message like this: "malamoney [observer]: Malamoney Open 11:55pm EST NLHE $10+1 All welcome" pops up?

I can accept people occasionally want to run a private tournament for friends.

But why would someone want to run a private event that is open to all?

What on earth is the point?

Hello Camel,

Its possible they may have arranged some scheme whereby they get some or all of the rake back from Stars. Certainly it used to be the case that if you organised a private tourney you could ask for a cut.

It's so obvious now.

Cheers Dom.

You can go to options -> "block automatic tournament announcements", and this should not be a problem in the future....

This only blocks those rather annoying announcements from Stars that seem to pop up just as you're in a pot. Unfortunately there is no way to block people typing announcements in the chat box, other than to ignore all chat. But then The Camel would miss out on the dry wit and welcome companionship of top-level professional funkers such as myself. And that would be a shame.

You're nearly right...not sure where the dry wit comes from but you're definitely a professional fucker
