  8. Just tried to register Adam. No form of PALA55 as the password will let me register.

  9. Let me correct that. the password is definetly case sensitive on their paradise poker circa 1999 software. It's (Pala55) not PALA55 not pala55 it has to be "Pala55". No offense but the fact that _ wasnt an accepeted password symbol but / was shoulda told me something. Im gonna play just for you Adam, but their software is fuckn straight up garbage.

  14. Unfortunately, the tournament has been cancelled due to technical issues. Players will be refunded their buy-in based on their tournament cancellation policy:


    If a tournament is cancelled PalaPoker.com will refund each remaining player their tournament fee, and then divide up the prize pool based on the following formula:

    50% of the award pool is distributed evenly among all remaining players
    50% of the award pool is distributed proportionally according to the chip count

    We're working with Pala to determine how to distribute the $1,500 and hope to have an answer shortly.

  15. Hey everyone. Here is an update on the P5s Open.

    First off, we're really sorry about the tournament being cancelled. Obviously this wasn't something P5s could control, but we were really excited about the event and bummed out that it didn't get to play out. We want to make it right!

    Here are a few things that are being done to resolve the situation, and thanks to everyone for your patience the last day or so.

    1. Everyone who got knocked out before the tourney was cancelled is getting their entry refunded.

    2. The prize pool - not including added money - was distributed per Pala's policy on this kind of situation. 50% was distributed evenly among all remaining players, and 50% was distributed based on chip counts.

    3. Pala is giving every person who entered this tournament an additional $20 in tournament dollars on the site.

    4. We'll be rescheduling this tournament for a date to be announced soon. When it's rescheduled, it will have an additional $500 in added tournament dollars on top of everything else that was added for the original. So there will be $1,000 in cash added to the prize pool, $500 in extra added tournament dollars and $500 in bounties. This tournament's date will be announced soon, once we're assured the bug has been fixed that caused the issue this time around. I'd expect to run it in the next few weeks though, and we'll give everyone ample notice.
