Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Anyway you can get rid of the top 10 at 945 pm eastern that never runs and just leave the 109 5k that was there before? Lots of times now neither run or the 109 5k isnt even there like tonight.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

I'd be really bummed if the top10 get scrapped so soon. I haven't been able to play any yet though because I don't feel they're at good price points. As far as I can tell, you have low stakes and $160. I'd def play at the $109 price point which seems to be the most obvious one as it can pay out $1000 and also at a $22 or $55 pricepoint. Maybe you can do them as hypers or turbos?

Also more late evening midstakes hypers and turbos, $22-55, with late reg closing around 8pm ET then another around 10pm ET to give me something to play when I'm chilling in the evenings.

Also, Pokerstars has some $109 hypers that are wildly popular. Maybe you could do some at the $82 pricepoint at least on some days, but not the crazy hyper with 4bb avg stack on the final 2 tables, more like what you have as a turbo structure perhaps. Sometimes I just want to gamble in some tournies, not grind a 5 hour long 11 bucker.

The NLO8 tournies have been super fun. Add as many of those as you want. Much better than PLO events.

Please make sure every big tournament has those 600 chip hyper sats. I love to fire in those.

Consider bringing back the ante ups. Those were a lot of fun. Maybe a $55 ante up on Saturdays, something mid to high stakes.

Also please at least a weekly $82 limit hold em tournament, I know you have the software capabilities since you had a limit hold em tournament in an OSS. Put a tiny gtd or no gtd at all. Would be fun to play just for practice. Could do it as low as $33 if you wanted.

Just my many cents

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

The TOP10 i have to say has upset me that its not popular. I thought a 3 - 4 hour tourney like that would do well.. Maybe its the name and people dont understand or just dont like the format. I am really leaning towards a $66 turbo mega... Start at 8k GTD...

with sats obviously. or could make it hyper... i dont imagine this would ever get over 100 players.

Booooo, lol. I can't get into the NLO8 games. I don't know why, but they are just so alien to me. They do seem to be growing in popularity, rapidly.

A fixed limit game or two would be mega awesome, Sunday 6 pack of them $1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 sorta thing.

New games and revisions to the old ones are great overall.

Like I said, I don't think the price points are right. Also, people might not understand they'll go so quickly. How about deploying some at various price points with 8 minute levels and 60 minutes late registration.

And just having some tournies that I can play after dinner that I can hop in for a reasonable stack size (not meaningless 200bb, but 20-50bb) that won't go all night would be great. I honestly don't care about guarantees. I just want to play tournaments, and if they're good, people will come.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

The problems with Top 10 seem obvious to me.

The MTT should be the same price every night, not varying every night. Price point should be less than 100 dollars to make it viable for people without large bankrolls, there should be a fixed satellite schedule (based on the fixed buy in) including hypers leading into registration opening and right after it opens.

I don't know that it will do OK with a 15 player minimum, but it seems that using less runs some chance of it running down to 10 and ending early.

I think the best price point is 82 dollars, with 11 dollar satellites running through the day. No switching the buy in daily. Right now it varies from 55 to 215. I don't understand what the appeal of that is. It's just confusing, even if it matches the other "daily themes."

Last edited by Boney526; 01-31-2017 at 04:15 PM. Reason: Of course, it could just be something that won't run, but I think this'll help.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

I see the wed night 50k crushes every week. Why not throw another one of these in during the week? 1st place of 5 figures on a daily tourney is very enticing to people. No one likes waiting until Sunday's to try and pick up a score.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Ok so if i change the TOP10.. to $66

$6000 GTD

2 hour late reg with 3k starting stack.. no longer than a 4 hour tournament i imagine.

My question is.. are people really going to be happy to be GDT $600 for finishing top10.. i mean i would be yes but is it enticing for regs or recs??

I mean if the prizepool doubles the guarantee you get 1200. Maybe a change of name?

I feel like the smaller ones overlay because 5-20k gtds aren't impressive. People want big numbers. So far the $109 100k crushes every Sunday. Same w the wed $100 50k.

What about a progressive tourney? $50 20k and grows every week until it doesn't hit the GTD ?

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Why is there not any good satellites for the $215 on Tuesdays? I just played the deadline and at the time 6 seats got paid, 3 people bust and we go down to 6 handed and play 2 hands before someone else registers... Stays at 8-9 people for the longest and then in the last 30 seconds 7 people register with less than 1bb and some literally never play a hand and cash lol.

Doesn't make any sense why the tournament wouldn't end when the 7th player busts and makes even less sense that you'd want a satellite where you can not play a hand and cash.

Nobody wants to play the Top 10, just get rid of it.

I agree it doesn't look very sexy. I think there needs to be more branding of the TOP10, maybe with tweets or a blog post about it. Just let people know what the heck it is. Or call it a Survivor tournament, since that's already a common designation in live poker. Do some funky branding with surviving, like showing a picture of a guy fending off a tiger or something.

I think the best price point in terms of sexyness is $109 --> $1000 but $109 might not be the best pricepoint to make them run. Maybe $55 --> $500 is the next best thing.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Thanks for response WinningTD. Is there anyway you could change the starting time of the Top10 and the 109 5k. Maybe move the 109 5k up 45 minutes. It does not make much sense to me anyway that you are trying to run two big buyin tournaments at the same exact time. The 109 5k went from running I would say atleast 80% of the time to maybe 20% of the time and the TOP 10 hardly runs at all. Overall though great schedule and great communication by you with us thank you

Please reduce the blind levels on the Monday PLO/8 SKO to 12 minutes and do something to stop the high stakes tournaments from canceling before they start.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

The majority of the 5 hour late reg mtts crush the guarantee, can we move them down to 4 hours? 5 hours is just obnoxious.... If not, please raise the guarantees. The bigger the # in the lobby the more casuals register. At least a bigger prize pool would make up for grinding 7 hours to not even double your buy in.

Agree. Some tourneys can easily have bigger GTDs.
Tourney director is gone for a day or 2 more. Really hope he can try doing a monthly 300k or better. It would easily easily crush.

1. I don't think Early special and $109 5k will survive if you don't cluster few more tourneys with $33> BI from 8am - 10.30am. There is no point in logging in for just 2 tournaments this early. Not for regs already playing WPN or new Euro regs that you want to attract to your site.

2. There is a gap in old and new schedule for mid/high stake grinders from 3.30pm to 5pm that could easily be filled with let's say $55-$109 daily special with progressive GTD(like 115k sunday special only smaller).

Regards,
MorbidTurn
Well said by a fellow reg.. I typically grind long hours and If im going to start my day with the early special, there can't just be a 4 hour period with no other tournaments worth registering, other than a 109 that never runs.

If you want to attract regs from the US, you have to incentivize them to wake their lazy asses up at the buttcrack of dawn. Adding more mid/highstakes small field tournaments leading up to the daily majors would definitely boost early participation... As is the case with Euro regs as well. There just cant be so many gaps in the schedule.

As far as the top 10 tournaments go, there is no way they will work unless you attract recreational players with a flashy name like Ignitions "Thousandaire Maker". People need an exciting reason to flick it in for a new style of gameplay.. Its all in the name!!

Those are all of the complaints. Overall though the new schedule is BOSS! Well done.

CEO actually announced that progressive KOs wouldn't be coming out quite a while back. Not sure if he actually ever said they were (but he might have).
