I'll start. Please change the rebuy structures. Starting them at 25/50 is absurd. Larger addons would be appreciated too. Also run more satellites to the daily $109 and $215. When I open the lobby for the $109 7.5Kt tonight, I see no satellites for this event in the lobby. I see one for the $215 15K. That's absurd. Give us some cubed tournaments. There are none during the day that I've seen. Lastly, more freezeouts with decent guarantees would be nice. Almost everything on the schedule is a rebuy or turbo deepstack. I think everyone would appreciate some mid-stake MTTs ($11-$33) with decent guarantees.
I actually do a large part of the tournament schedule, which is part of the reason I've been less active over here (been SUPER busy between WSOP and this stuff).
I'll address a few points here:
1) rebuy structures - yes I started them at 25/50, but I also added a 30/60 and 40/80 level. basically I removed two early levels and added to middle levels. This change was based on a lot of the feedback I received from both players and pros.
2) Satellites - can you give me some times and types of satellites you would like to see? I def want to add more satellites to these tournaments, but I'm still feeling out what players like the most/are the most successful, so any feedback I would consider very helpful.
3) can you give me some specific suggestions for times/buy ins etc you'd like to see. I'm happy to add more tournaments, although obviously if they're not successful I'll have to change/remove them.
