This has been mentioned a bunch, it's a problem and Merge knows it according to Ryan or Chris. Until it's fixed you can change your display to round out stack sizes.
Setting ----> Display Settings ----- > Display Multi-Stack Chips ----> never
It'll round the stacks to like 2.5K which is kind of a pain where you need to see exact sizes but it's the only way to fix the issue for now.
Back to the guarantees, I'd guarantee you if Merge put 2 games with an $11 buy in, freezeout and set one gtd at 2K and another at 5K the 5K would meet the gtd and 2K would just barely make it if not even have overlay. People want to feel like they are getting the most value for their buy in and they prefer games where 1st pays at least $1K. Right now there are 8400 players on Merge which is probably a few hundred more than peak time during the time Merge was closed to the US yet the guarantees are lower.
