With the recent USA legislation in mind and the expected negative impact on the numbers of US poker players should the Poker Inside freerolls reflect the different Europe v US split? Most of the current freerolls are geared towards US Eastern time zone, so are held in the early hours of the morning in Europe. With having to get up for work etc the next day how fair is that? How about a better splt with more of the tournement schedules reflecting the higher number of players in the European zone. Poker Inside could alternate the use of the time zones so that one week it was USA Eastern time and the next European time. Be fairer for the European players. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Would be nice to get more european-friendly times for the freerolls now. In weekdays, u can't play in the middle of the night, if you have to go to work in the morning. The best solution on that, would be if I could have poker for a living, but it's a little too far for that :-)

Being European I'm obviously biassed, however, eing a family man, 20.00 Uk time would be no use to me whatsoever. I'd be happy with say a 23,00 UK time kick off (1800 in Canada?), but that's just me. A quick look at the team leaderboard shows how active the Canadians are on here, so I'd be gearing benefits towards them if I was the bossman. Freerolls are nice, but thy're not the be all and end all of PokerInside. I tend to avoid the bigger fields anyway a the payback is simply not big enough to justify the time spent - although if I'm playing anyway I'm happy to join in :-)

The best is if no freerolls is in the middle of the night. Wherever you live.

Voted for European-friendly times, as I'm from Germany...
