Are we going to get our extra 2 minute blind levels for Bigs on sundays like we had before? Make them feel special again, atleast once per week.

I don't know why is that so hard to make them "bigger/hotter" again.

Would be nice to know if it's going to be a Sept 2nd or Sept 9th start.
Since I (and many other people) need to book flights back from Barca.


I assume Sept 9?

Can you reinstate the $3.75 hyper 6max satellites to Sunday storm running all week? You have done this to kick off and the Sunday million.

Micro Million without leaderboard pretty useless. That 1k$ Last Man Standing is sadly just a joke.

I really hope PartyPoker get more variety of MTTs in the schedule so that I can move my roll from stars to party! Stars is just getting worse and worse

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

How about making MM with x5-10 buy in.
Like the same - starting time, structure, days etc..

Players want it, just make it happen soon, like before late December, preferably this year

Def not keen for the same structure as MM. Just a 20BB shove range fest deep at the moment. Need at least 12 min blinds

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

How can we get all these MM players to play on the normal schedule. Look at $5.50 deep stacks from today starting very close to the $5 MM event. Same numbers as before MM, not a single one of these "recs" are playing anything other then MM.

Pretty sure it will be 3-25 September. Never saw WCOOP outside September and that's the only combination possible. Besides that, 888 has his ME at 24th, which they always put in the same day of a ME on Stars.

Do you think 888's commercial intelligence officers never err?

^^This

Blows my mind how many recs come out to play these, and stars continues to drop GTD's "cause its summer and everyone is at WSOP"

Hilarious

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Recs have limited entertainment budgets and spend more money on MTTs per week during series than between them. They wouldn't like to deposit at the same high rate every week.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Shootouts, even total KO ones, don't really work well as scheduled MTTs, especially deepstacked.

In MicroMillions-31 (3-max TKO shootout), there are 9151 entrants, so as many as 3971 got a bye and had to wait for 45 minutes for the next round, the rest (5180) had to play the 1st round HU. One of my 2nd round opponents was late for the round and autofolded for 3 or so minutes, then briefly came back, disappeared for 2 minutes again (likely had a real-life commitment) and only then became active.

And the thing is that the total KO structure doesn't change much in 3-max shootouts in terms of strategy - it only slightly loosens the game up even if the table is full (with 3 players).

This is in contrast to Zoom - I expect total KO Zoom tourneys to play a lot looser than normal Zoom ones because, when you knock a player out, you're immediately dealt into hands with other players and can gobble up even more bounties due to your larger stack, and this is a big incentive for trying to double up early. In a shootout, if you finish a round early, this gives you no advantage - you have to wait for the next round.

So Zoom is a much better format for total KOs than shootout.
