#OSSCub3d To be or not to be !

Our next #OSSCub3d was scheduled for December, but we’ve received several requests from members asking for it sooner.

Please post in this thread to let us know if we should move it up to August!

More poker is better than less poker. Any talk of doing a FreeBuy series again?

Please add some stud and FL games. You had some FL in one of last years series with no overlay in what I played

Re: #OSSCub3d To be or not to be !

I would really like to see some like $20, $40, $60 etc buy in NL tournies where half goes to prize pool and the other half is a bounty. I think those would have no problem hitting the GTD

You've crushed the GTDs for months.. why wouldn't you do a series once a month

#TEAMSTORM Checking in

I mean, it seems really logical to have one in August, right after the WSOP. Have a decent chance at picking up new users who are looking to play online after watching the coverage, and if it's timed right, you'll pick up all the regular ACR players that are coming back from Vegas as well, even if they decide to take a couple weeks off immediately following the series.

Bit of a jump from reg weekly GTD being crushed and a huge series like OSSCub3d- A series like that requires a lot of planning and lots of money is locked up just in case GTDs are not hit.Not sure if the time is right for a risk of that nature every month yet .Perhaps a couple of "Monthly Specials" is possible .
Example a $500K $215 and a $250k/$109 -Even a $1MIL GTD set down for every 3 months going to monthly if demand is there .

Re: #OSSCub3d To be or not to be !

Well it will be interesting to see what sort of appetite there is for an August series of that scale ,I know a few of the Stormers Twitch streamers still feel like it just ended last week With still 7 weeks until start of August I am sure many will be hungry for some sort of series by then . Perhaps a "OSSCub3d Lite Edition" ?
Stormers what do you think ?

I just received an update on the Freebuy Series -
While the 1st was very successful the second did not have the impact expected.
With there now being a MOSS series in the OSSCub3d most micro players are well catered for with very low BI's & better GTNs than were offered in the Freebuy series. To really be able to grind the Freebuy Series you still needed a BR that is near that of a budget MOSS series BR ,I think MOSS offers far better value - So NO Freebuy planned at this stage .
I also would love to see a more Stud events if the demand is there.

That's what I meant. A monthly 300k or something. Easily crushes.

Re: #OSSCub3d To be or not to be !

august and January is a good plan personally, and a monthly 300k-500k gtd would be awesome as well with Million Dollar sunday 3-4 times a year

Re: #OSSCub3d To be or not to be !

#TEAMSTORMER here & honestly I think doing these super series quarterly would be the best way to do it. However, I think they do need to be differently themed. So yes pls do run one in August but differentiate it somehow from the one that was ran in April
