    Today iPoker had a promotion which was a '$2,000 added MTT', however the tournament buyin was $1+$1 (yes 100% rake).
    The tournament got over 2,000 runners which meant nothing was added due to the rake and iPoker infact ended up making almost $200 profit.

    What? To me it looks like 2194 runners and a prize pool of $4194.

    Added is not the same as guaranteed.

    Looks legit to me with the limited info given.

    Boyles made $194. Looks like a freezout and 2194 players entered hence rake paid to the 2 k ($1 a pop rake) but the added attracted people.

    I have to agree, there is nothing wrong here except the high rake.

    Despite the high rake there was still a risk to the room as if only 500 players turn up the promotion costs them $1500. Granted it didn't end up being particularly good value for the players who took part but the $1+$1 was clearly displayed all along.
