-Lots more rake for merge
-Viable game for a lot of regs who aren't having great hourlies at supers because they can't play enough to have a shot at higher rewards from the SNG leaderboards.
-Doubt it will turn away any fish, still lots of chance to play poker for 30-40 minutes. Fish loved em on stars and they were probably still faster than if we move to 5 min levels.
Or bring back 6maxes
I play these regularly about 2 hours every night but only about 5-6 at a time honestly. I would like to see the levels drop from 7 mins to 5 mins. the first couple blind levels in DONs are really more about staying afloat then about accumulating chips (like other tourneys). The big differences in ROI for DONs are folks ability to properly open shove while avoiding the -EV calls on the bubble. so in my opinion I would rather have the games be sped up a little bit to get to those spots so I can fit more tourneys in.
I don't believe the fish will notice and they might even like it. if you are a reg playing these, think about what I am saying and question yourself on whether you feel like there is any value to the extra couple minutes vs the extra amount of tourneys you can fit in.
one thing I am not sure about is whether there will be much of an ROI impact by having shorter time levels at the BB150 and up stages. I think it will have a slight impact on ROI because it will force the fish to open shove more often (which is correct and we can't call) but hopefully not enough to outweigh our ability to fit more tourneys in.
i wish we could make it 5 mins early then boost it to back to 7 mins when the BB hits 150.
avg tourney lasts about 33.5 minutes for me.
