The awesome structure is what made the WSOPc so great. Having 1 turbo per series is okay but FOUR?!?!? Cmon
The "1-day Turbo" structure will be the really good Turbo structure used at certain stops last year. (some places just eliminated levels and played it as a turbo, however we put more thought into it and it was really well recieved).
All imaginable levels, 20 min rounds, super smooth progression, last a long full day 12-14 hours. One of the most popular structures of last year. To call them a Turbo is almost an injustice since with the stack size and gradual progression there really is never a sense of urgency throughout the day.
Players repeatedly ask to have this style 1-day Turbos scheduled the day before the Main and the day before the big re-entry events because eevryone wants to play those. No one wanted to just sit out and not play on the Friday before. Additionally, players who are unfortunate and bust out of the Main Event the final weekend will still have a 1 day Turbo ring to play for on that last Sunday before traveling home or returning to work on Monday.
If you take a close look at how the "12 rings in 12 days" flows you will see it is designed to serve the needs of the grinders and the weekend warriors. The grinders chasing points are able to play in more events and not miss as many events and the local players at each stop, who can only play the weekends, will be able to participate in more events and still make it to work on Monday.
Please take a real close look at the overall schedule and I think you will like it whether you are a point chaser, a 12 day single event grinder or a regional player trying to squeeze in as many WSOP-C tournaments as possible while still working at your job.
