The wsop staff is pretty clueless, i highly doubt they would allow any modifications to their structure (which was awful to begin with). I think its absolutely ridiculous that a 10k "championship" event allows players to play at 40bbs or less for the entire tournament if they want.
Brian didn't want to play deep vs me anyways, he only bought in for 1 40bb bullet at a time. I think he figured i was much better playing deep stacks (which is true), but i practiced a lot for this structure playing probably70+ husngs in the days before and did a lot of work on my 10-40 bb game so i doubt i was playing at a disadvantage in anyway. However, even for the very best husng players winning 55% of games is extremely tough to do, lots of variance.
