I think it's a sick promotion, but it drives me nuts how much some people play. I feel like I cannot have a life outside of Poker if I want any chance at winning those huge leaderboard cash prizes. Those players must play about 18 hours per day, 8 tables at a time with no breaks. Do they have servants bring them food and drinks? Because they sure don't have time to do it themselves!
With cash rewards that high, I guess there's plenty of reason why the competition is so tough!
Well I find that IPoker doesn't seem to want to reward thier tournament players as much as they do thier Cash table players. I guess I can understand, if you do a budy search for these 2 High stakes players (snake8484 & ihami) these 2 will have (between them) almost $400,000 on 16 tables each, HU & 6 seaters NL, these guys can put in several thousand hands daily at limits of $50-100 and higher (& each level has "sharks" like these trolling about!!)...so unless IPoker comes up with a competition that works more like PokerInside's Fantasy Hand, I don't see the smaller player ever being able to compete in these Cash Dash style of competitions.
As for tournaments, why can't IPoker do something in line with what FTP does and have leader boards for different level sng & mtt players? I wouldn't expect the same level of rewards as the Cash Dash, but something like a Free roll at the end of each competition would be nice???
But that just my thoughs.....
not sure if i can type this here but anyway, I have seen that promotion via PI and if you belong they will also
give you money back while you're playing this dash. I can't afford the stakes but some of you can I'm sure.

What do you mean by that ms?
the ecoop is a HUGE event worth a few million!"
Yes Ecoop is a huge event, but most qualifier are a rb/a & some of the finals too (Ecoop #9 $100,000 Omaha
PL hi/lo). While I'm up for a challenge, I'm not up for multiple rb/a tournaments....it's just too hard on the BR!
What I'm talking about is a competition set-up in the same way they do the cash dashes... broken down into 3
levels (micro-$1, $2-10, 10up) you get pts for your finishes and at the end there's a tournament for each level.
Special sng's & mtt's can be set-up (in the same way they do the JP sng's, with a slightly higher fees that can be
pooled for each levels final).
I guess what I'm asking for is to be rewarded for my regular play in the same way the Cash Dash rewards cash
table players for thier regular play?
Yesterday I was playing at betmost, and saw that we need to wait 2 members on their turn. I just go to see at how many tables they play, believe me or not, they play 16 tables at same time?!! They must be crazy...really.
You would have to get brain fade playin all those tables and even more so after a period of time .Im wondering if these guys are using some type of software to assist there play and help them manage their tables ,they probably have like 4 monitiors in front of them????????
it would be to much for me to handle -have enough trouble concentrating on 2-3 games yo
