Players Organizing a Three Day Strike on Pokerstars

Active players on PokerStars have been organizing a three day strike on PokerStars, which is set to run from December 1st to December 3rd.

The strike is being organized by higher status players, that are trying to protest the changes Pokerstars recently announced.

“PokerStars have deceived SNE [Supernova Elite] players about benefits they would receive, are discontinuing the SNE program, and they have completely removed all rewards for high stakes (5/10+) cash games. While PokerStars claims the changes are to provide relief to recreational players, there is no such change happening.

They are telling their players outright lies, and we will not stand for it. Beyond that, it follows an ongoing trend that PokerStars/Amaya has been taking in recent years. A site that was once clearly for the players, has completely lost sight of that.”, high-stakes player Dani Stern, one of the notable players behind the upcoming strike, said recently.

It appears that over 1,000 players will be attending the strike so far and it remains to be seen will it have any effect on PokerStars upcoming changes.
