Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

The morning $44 nlo8 hasn't been getting enough to start in a while. Seems like it's a bit too early, even for many of the europeans. Try setting it at least an hour later, or 2 hours later would probably work best tbh since it would start right as the first happy hour was finishing up.

I would deposit specifically to play this MTT if it ran consistently but it seems to be canceled every day due to lack of runners. Similar MTT's on another major poker site start at 4pm (GMT) which is around an hour after this $44 is supposed to start. I think you would find a ton of cross over from EU regs if it started at 4pm.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

if a tournament structure is to good or slow go play cash games... don't ever bash a site for keeping poker real and not resorting to quicker games and less poker. Make poker great again.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

@Winning_TD, I watch Jason Somerville stream poker almost every day, and one of the most fun things he streams on Pokerstars are the $109 hyper turbos. The structures are fast with short levels but no big jumps. The average stacks are 12-15bb near the end -- enough for some play but never boring (compare to the ACR hypers that have 5bb avg stacks from the final 2 tables onward). They are also 6max, for maximum fun and play -- a much better format for 9max.

If there is a singular thing I could implore you to implement, it is to copy the PS $109 hyper structure as closely as you can (it even has late reg that lets you jump in until you have 10bb). Sometimes I hop on after I finish my work and dinner around 8pm ET and want to gamble in some poker, but there are no higher stakes options that won't take me through the night. Maybe $109 isn't the price point, maybe it's $55, but there should be no point between 6pm and 12am ET that a person can't hop on ACR and reg a $22-109 hyper MTT.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Any chance the network could add a few $10 tournaments at 11pm EST, 12am EST, and 1am EST? Their is that one turbo at 10:30 but after that I don't see much for what is the most popular buyin level on most poker sites.

Some of us don't have much interest in three hour late registration mtts for micro $2 to $5 levels with only a few hundred bucks at the top for first and that is close to all you can play during these hours.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Winning_TD,

How about a few more Sunday Special, and Sunday High Roller satellites throughout the week? It would be nice to be able to secure spots in these tournaments during the week, rather than using table space on Sundays.

Thanks!

Agree, there should be a 5-10 seat sat daily to the $150K during prime time.

You might get some action on Wednesdays for a 530 ticket to Sunday's HR as well. What do you think?

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

All of the rebuy tournaments border on being turbos basically. Was this done on purpose? Were the players wanting fast rebuy structures across the board? I used to play them all the time but I'm not touching them now. If this is what people wanted then I understand. It's hard for me to imagine the players wanted all the rebuys to border on being turbos though. The 12 PM $6 rebuy only gives you 2k per rebuy and the blinds move every ten minutes. Not only that it also skips levels. It's pretty much a turbo. The others give you 2.5k per rebuy but the blinds are still ten minutes and it skips a bunch of levels as well. The only decent rebuy you have is the Sunday 6pm $10 rebuy and that actually may be too slow for most of your customers. That thing takes like 8 hours to finish. The rest take like 4-4.5 other than the 12 pm $6 which ends around 3-3.5 hours usually. Most of your tournaments with similar number of buy ins last approximately 6-7 hours. At least most of your normally scheduled tourneys. Big 10's and the other dailies in general. Then all of a sudden your rebuys are all turbo shove fests.

I can see you're tying to force rebuys with the structure, but it's beyond reasonable at this point. Plus more importantly they are all structured that way. You changed the structure where it's universal on all of them but you've basicslly just turned them all into shove fests trying to force rebuys. I don't really get the logic. Why not just make all your tourneys shove fests and force re entries? Why even have tournies? Let's just flip a coin and see who wins? Let's just give everyone 5 bigs to start every tourney and we can get them over in 30-45 minutes? I mean why are all the rebuys structured this way? As if you have to force rebuys? You have this obsession with making every rebuy whether it be a regular tourney or a satellite into shove fests wit fast structures. It's clear you do it to force rebuys too. You make the structures horrible doing this though. Maybe your rebuys don't do well because you have them all structured terribly. I don't play them for that very reason and I can't be the only person. A quick study of their structures compared to your other tournies and it's easy to see why people skip them.

can we have some love for the morning schedule? I usually start to play early and there is nothing on ACR to play. The night schedule is just great.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

so it looks like ACR and skins on same network have stopped taking credit cards as a deposit method. i am sure this is discussed elsewhere on 2p2. we worried about this? links welcomed.

also, are player to player transfers possible? if so, i'm looking for a small amount this evening from a reputable member. thanks.

edit: looked for but couldn't but the buy sell trade thread that existed 4+ years ago

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

And so begins the hardest time of the year for WPN in terms of traffic (at least in mtts). With OSS finished now and powerfest + scoop running it will be difficult to attract any attention to the schedule.

I think its obvious that there needs to be more love given to the day schedule. As seen on Sundays people love an excuse to start their play earlier. A daily warm up would be an awesome addition to the scheduale and give players a reason to log in earlier. And for the ones who don't they can still late reg

Daily 8max WARM UP at 11:00 or 12:00 55 20k.


With a 5hr late reg this tournament would easily smash a 20k guarantee and would add a lot of excitement to the schedule. Same structure as the warm up on Sunday but with half the buyin.

Either way some new additions or bigger guarantees should pop up this month as a lot of players (non usa) are flocking back to party and stars to play their series. And I am sure a lot of US players are playing less or not at all now that the series i over and there is nothing exciting.

Give us a new sunday tournament, anything new. OSSc showed that people will come out for big tournaments of all buyins.

OSSc was great, what's next tho !

To add to this idea....I don't understand why the weekday guarantees are not larger throughout the year. Now that OSSc is over I will go back to playing Sundays and the occasional Wednesday when I am bored.

To make the early schedule work on weekdays, there should be at least 6-8 mid/high range buy-in tourneys starting from 18-22h GMT.
With 5hr LR, the tourney that starts in 19h GMT should end by 3am GMT, which is still ok for Euro players.

This is my proposal for the schedule - EST time:
10:30 AM $7,000 GTD (5hr Late Reg) $33.0
11:30 AM $5,000 GTD $109.0
12:00 AM $4,000 GTD $66.0
13.00PM $30,000 GTD (5hr Late Reg) $109.0 (prog gtd tourney)
14.30PM $4,000 GTD PLO/PLO8 $55.0
3:00 PM $4,000 GTD $66.0
3:30 PM $20,000 GTD (5hr Late Reg) $22.0
4:00 PM $5,000 GTD 6-Max $44.0
4:30 PM $10,000 GTD PLO 6-MAX $109.0

This timeframe is convenient for EU players already playing on the site, and the good start to attract new EU grinders. This way we can have almost a full schedule for mid/high stakes grinders starting early.

Great work with OSS TD! Now it's time to profit from it.
