I just realize that it is not possible to determine if your rebuys/add-ons are raked, unless you are registered to the game itself. That's super shady if you ask me.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

people who are talking about a flatter payout mean the ft payouts, not paying out more players. The payoutjumps at ft are just ridic in the mid/highstakes stuff.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

The payouts are ridic in any game, in the games with more players you can see it even better. ofc high BI shows you also how flawed it is.

@cryptic3: yeah i visited that forum like two years ago .. for a day.

point is a load of people don't visit that forum - especially recreationals who just want to play and not discuss poker, who are also the best candidates for setting freerolls up. These people have no idea that there is actually a freeroll to the volcano.

For most of us that are playing on other sites too having super steep payout structures is fine and personally I really like it for a small percentage of tournaments that I play.

888 you're doing a great job!

Increasing Typhoon/Twister Guarantees (and some more) was great, adding crocodile/volcano, too.

I would love to see earlier antes though, especially in tourneys like 25$ freezout etc. it just plays horrible right before antes kick in. maybe add them 2-3 levels earlier?!

wouldn't hurt for 5k starting stack tourneys, either, but it isn't as much of an issue there.

You still need to get rid off the 18man super turbos as they never fire because you already have the sweet 4max 20man nitros!


Oh and lower the rake for those; 0.60+0.1 and 1+.20 for a 3m blind game? come on.

+1 to adding antes earlier; and if we discuss turbos its more like hyper-turbo

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

please please please put in antes earlier. I think you'd be surprised how much traffic will go up if you copied a structure similar to the 'bigs' on Pokerstars.

Also +1 for deal making. Although I def see why some people think it's not needed. It does give an interesting dynamic, but anyone who doesn't want to deal can just say play on. Some of those jumps on the FT of your bigger stuff are just crazy!

888,
Please, consider serious adding new decent tourneys and make a bit bigger gtd prizepools to early european schledue mtt's. Seeing what pokerstars are doing, nonstop lowering gtzprizepools and killing most of them, im just waiting to give my money for other sites to play normall playable tournaments like twister typhoon etc, in one secound i would switch from stars into any other decent tourneys that you would add.

Can we get breaks to start when the hands finish in the whole of that tournament... so often half the break is finished before the hand completes and gotta rush for the remainder of the break.

+1 to the above

The "would you like to replay the hand history" rub down is getting annoying.

Re: ****Official 888 2015 MTT Discussion Thread****

this might be a bit crazy but if you win the crocodie i think you should send that person a actual baby crocodile....or at a minimum a croc teddy lol

nah seriously tho having the XL series once a year is prob losing you guys money u could run it twice or three times a year no problem its on of the better euro series on offer. fling it up another time instead on once per annum and u guys make more rake we get more shots at big bucks and everyone is happy

auto timebank option would be really nice, as well as having betslider options including shortcuts for certain sizings etc.

i also agree that you could run the XL series more than once a year nowadays.
