Raise the gtd's of high performance tournaments!

Itt we post tournaments that are currently DESTROYING their current gtd. This is a high traffic time of year even with oss ended. Here is what I have observed on today. I will be updating this almost everyday. This is just what i observed on wednessday.

530 HR Wed 20k = 45.5k (raise to 35k)
HS 88 PLO WED 5k= 10.4k (raise to 10k)
16.50 hs WED 15K=22K (raise to 20k)
109 HS WED 50K= 80K! (raise to 75k)

Extreme tuesday 66 30k got over 45k yesterday, could do well at 40k.

Traffic is still high, its time to adjust to the market, and promote the right tournaments.

Some of the GTDs crush regularly, even the smaller stakes. The Saturday afternoon 4K PLO 8Max does the same. They could probably do a Sunday 500k+ game structured like the MDS game and destroy that every game, too.

It's May, now is not the time to upgrade guarantees going into WSOP/summer. With that said, when September rolls around they need to be upped quite a bit.

Re: Raise the gtd's of high performance tournaments!

fine whatever let's just give up and watch the tournaments die into the summer...

Posting in this forum seems so useless though Winning td never participates and they never make any changes.

Il continue to post huge gtd failures or the fun of it.

If tournaments die in the summer raising gtds isnt going to help things. The site needs to make money to. They cant just raise gtds and give overlay.The play is watching what happens in summer then if traffic is steady deciding what to do with gtds.

Also winningtd is active on here. Hes always gotten back to me to help with my problems. Much better then what alot of sites offer.

Every single one of the OSS events covered, some by a lot...I think it was around 50% over the gtd in total gtd to total prize pools. They even sent out an email about it. For the best performing daily/weekly GTDs I'd say gambooool and get a head of steam going into fall/winter.

Also looks pretty clear they better get another OSS Cubed ready as soon as they can lol

Edit - Nvm checked again and it was 5.8m total gtd with almost 8m in total prize pools. Still pretty sick, and if they go big on the next one they better up the number of satties and maybe even the number of satty formats...sorta like how they had step sng sats this time.

Also I really hope they post it as early as possible to give all of us time to grind up a few satty entries, and maybe use a lil of that profit to crank out that mtt ticket overhaul they've been putting off for awhile :P Definitely not a bad idea for wpn to re-invest a lil bit of mtt rake back into their mtt software tbh.

Maybe make OSS Cubed a quarterly thing? 4 a year sounds about right, if they time them well. Even just 2 or 3 a year would be nice.

Re: Raise the gtd's of high performance tournaments!

Oh i know things are looking great on ACR right now. Awesome promotions and tourney schedule is getting better and better. Just saying waiting till summer to see what the GTDS look like seems like a smart play. Alot of mtts hit over the GTD but i still see some overlays on certain things so that tells u its not perfect yet.

I agree more series. Those get players who wouldnt normally show up to show up and some add ACR into their schedule more.

Re: Raise the gtd's of high performance tournaments!

Summer might not be all that bad for a US-facing site tbh. The usual drop in worldwide online poker traffic might just as easily be compensated by expats coming back for the summer looking for some games to grind. The WSOP tends to get quite a bit of public exposure here...before, during, and afterwards.

WPN should really be looking to make their mtts look as good as possible this summer. They might gain quite a bit of new business from it tbh.
