PokerStars responds to boycott and announces $4 million in freerolls
The announcement, penned by Amaya’s Head of Corporate Communications Eric Hollreiser, and started off by announcing four $1 million freerolls the site would host in 2016, before, for the first time, formally addressing the boycott and the criticism the company has received.
Hollreiser admits there was a lack of communication about the specifics of the changes, but also confirmed these changes would still be going into effect in 2016.
The statement coincided with a blog post by Daniel Negreanu, where he spoke to the players directly.
