Hendon Mob, I've been suggesting this for a while. Let's see how many bracelets Doyle has under these requirements (which are standard requirements, I would guess over 90% of poker players regularly play fields which are 500+)
500 is way too high. The 1500 Stud at the WSOP doesn't get 500 people. Obviously the super high rollers skew things but I think there are options to filter those out when it comes to the top rankings on the site.
Field size is not nearly as important as many people act like it is. The same percentage of people cash for the most part and it isn't that much harder to win a bigger tournament over a smaller one (relatively speaking). Bigger field sizes don't necessarily take longer than a tourney with a smaller field size. Its not like you have to knock everyone out on your own.
