Anytime there is a table at the micros in NL with a plyrs to flop % greater than 18% there will be five people waiting in line. These seems to have only gotten worse and its making the games a lot less fun, which seems like the primary concern for micro games. This seemed to help a lot on Stars when I was there. It got to be that I hardly ever liked to play the regular games. This was something that wasn't done for a long time at Stars, so I don't know if this kind of thing is feasible right now for Merge, but I think it would definitely be a great idea in the future.
Despite a complaint of mine, (for which I was roundly heckled, though not by Lock or Rizen) I really like Lock's software and graphics combined with what I've found to be a very responsive customer service team with the added bonus of Rizen keeping such a high profile on the forum here. Just would like to get to a point where it seems like things are static and not in a constant state of flux.
I would like to see deep stacked ante games too. I think it will happen at some point in the future. Just so you know why it's probably not happening now is basically segregating your NLHE games requires some level of critical mass or you end up cannibalizing the existing games.
I personaly think we're almost there, but when I brought up segregating the games by stack depth (much like stars did) before there was an issue with not wanting to break the games up into multiple tiers per buy in level because if you only have 6 games at a level running trying to divide them up by stack depth just kills the games, if that makes sense?
We're reaching a more critical mass now, and I can definitely say that I see this happening at some point once the player base is big enough around the clock to support it. It would also be another way for those of you that don't like dealing with short stackers to avoid them.
