The surprise decision has cut the buy-in options almost by half. The €0.25, €20 and €50 buy-ins have all been removed from the client, leaving just four mid-range options: €1, €2, €5 and €10.

The maximum prize pools have also be reduced. The top prize is now just 1000x the buy-in, meaning that €10,000 is now the highest prize available. Previously, tournaments had a 5000x win potential, meaning the top buy-in tournament could pay out €250,000.
