Re: SCOOP 2017

The Good: Structures were amazing. Good amount of tournaments to play. Loved how many mixed games there were.

The Bad: Did not like super knockouts at all. No watches and horrible leaderboard was very sad to see.
Payouts are absolutely atrocious. Should be at least double buy-in + a little extra for a cash.

The Ugly: Re-entries need to go for championship events. You should not be able to buy a championship even though they don't mean what they once did with no watches.
Here's the final tallies for the re-entry event:
*Not counting the cancelled events which do not finish until tomorrow.

Low: 11/23 winners re-entered at least once
Medium: 7/23 winners re-entered at least once
High: 10/23 winners re-entered at least once.

Mati won the Badugi rebuying twice. (best Badugi player in the world arguably)
Rast won 2-7 single draw rebuying twice.

+1. Agree with all of this. (Other than the fact that Stud high should obv have been there.)
PLEASE listen and take in all of this feedback, Luke.

Yakiddinme: yes please

If they'd wanted this they could just check the box right?
Yeah I was watching this, it was kind of ****ed up imo. Like the host was saying it like he was going to show just this 1 person the numbers, before the tournament was even paused. Like he just decided to do it himself.
But then it's weird that the hosts are basically always eager to try and resume the tournament and to hurry the players.

Re: SCOOP 2017

Payouts were ridiculous. The normal mtts now pay around 1/6 with a min-cash around 2x. For SCOOP fewer people were paid, 1/7, and with a smaller mincash?! I'm wondering what the thought process could have been.

Re: SCOOP 2017

Luke can you tell us what is happening with breaking down SCOOP tickets? I have a few $215 tickets from 08 satellites, have no use for them currently in their state as 95% of my tourneys are 08. Can I transfer these tickets to someone so they can use?

Just emailed Stars and got this response for any wondering:

Although we allow players to exchange tickets, please note that any leftover SCOOP tickets can now be used in any regular tournament with the corresponding buy-in if you would prefer that.

If you wish to exchange your ticket, simply send an email to support@pokerstars.com with the subject line "SCOOP ticket exchange" and include the details about which tickets you want to exchange and what tickets you would like in return. Please note tickets cannot be exchanged for cash or T-Money.

The possible ticket values you can choose from are the following:

$1,050
$215
$109
$55
$27
$11
$5.50
$4.40
$3.30
$2.20
$1.10
$0.55

Re: SCOOP 2017

I'd like to see some off-peak events introduced next year- SCOOP unplayable for Asian countries, Australia, New Zealand, for those that work full-time. Also put some freeze out NLH events on Friday/Saturdays (EST) in the late slot (sunday mill starting time).

Re: SCOOP 2017

Hey guys,

I'm going to make a longer post in the general thread, but I just wanted to pop in and say thank you for all the feedback before, during, and after the Series! I'm making notes since it will soon be time to begin WCOOP planning.

More 4max and 3max tournaments please. The 3max zoom scoop event was a lot of fun.
