[Mod Edit]

This thread will be for the discussion of all PokerStars SNGs which begin with three or more tables (except for those which are HU tournaments, see HUSNG forum).

For discussion of STTs, and SNGs which begin with two tables, please use the corresponding thread in STTF. This is in line with the forum distinction for strat threads.

[/Mod Edit]




So ill start:
Add 27man turbo
More 90man turbos
More regspeed 45man
1$ rebuy 180man

Re: *** OFFICIAL Stars 2012 MTTSNG Discussion Thread ***

I don't think 27 and 90m is ever going to work without hugely affecting 18, 45, 180s. I would suggest bringing in 27m and dumping the 45s altogether ( I think this is how it is on .it), the volume would be massive and they'd run better in quiet times. $30 45m doesn't even run in the slightest off peak times! You think non turbos will?????

In my opinion it's buy-ins that still need changing slightly but that'll never be agreed upon so F everyone

Nah dont drop 45man. They are quite popular.

But agree, the buyins have to be changed.

They'll be less popular with 27m though, $15 and up.

1r 180s
7-8r 180s

alternative suggestion

cut 8s, replace with 5s, as well as 8 rebuys. that makes abi scale 2.5 - 5 - 10 - 15 - 24 - 35 instead of 2.5 - 8 - 10 - 15 - 35


Also, seperate leaderboard for MTTSNGs, cause 180s can't compete for MTT leaderboard

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

Higher buyin rebuys would be the absolute nuts. I seriously doubt any 180 reg would disagree.

Some hypers could be interesting but would be difficult to ensure traffic I imagine.

Oh, and 35s IN THE DAMN LOBBIES

+1 to 180 leaderboard. That'd be really great. Also like the idea of introducing a $5 level.

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

doubt they'll introduce 5s after introducing them 8 months ago or so, then pulling them after 2 days.

7/8r would be neat

+1 to 180man leaderboards and lower and higher turbo rebuy 180s

Also, what about 180man turbo knockouts? I assume KO bounties are good for regs while probably attracting more recreational players at the same time. Imo, all the non-rebuy turbos could be KOs, except for the highest buyins maybe.

Oh and even though I don't play them any more, do something about 45man grinders being cut from leaderboard and BoP.

Re: *** OFFICIAL PokerStars MTTSNG Suggestion Thread ***

The NLO8 18 man turbo SNGs have been incredibly popular. However, they currently only exist at the following levels:
$1.50
$3.50
$7.00
$15.00

The $3.50s are byfar away the most popular, but believe it or not, the $15s come a close second during peak hours - they are MORE popular than the $7.00s. Is there any chance of adding higher levels for these games? A $30 and $60 version would be very attractive to some cash game players that might consider $15 "too small".

Additionally, there has been suggestions of adding different variations of the game. Someone suggested more 27-man and 45-mans, perhaps at the $3.50, $7.00 or $15 levels. This would be a complement to the regular 18 mans and would attract some NLHoldem 45 man players to give the game a shot.
