Re: Official Mohegan Sun Summer Showdown 2K Main Event $700,000 Guaranteed

How about an update as to who is left in the event. Your site has no information. Im too tired to give my long winded rant as to how you missing your Guarantee by over 200k , (which I GUARANTEE is the biggest overlay in poker history) Will have a negative impact on the future of guaranteed prize pools not just at your casino but also at all others. 4am is a bit too late to write my thoughts on this clearly and objectively. For the time being can you please post somewhere the palyers that are left in the event. Preferably their last names rather then just writing Joe from ny as you do on the Mohegan site. Im not really sure what that is all about. Are you trying to shield players from tax responsibilities or their wives from finding out they were playing a tournament. Stop trying to re invent the wheel! Follow what works for others and copy it. Im going off my rant and want to save it for tomorrow. Believe me , as poker tournament circuit players we want nothing more then another great stop on our travels. You are fumbling a great opportunity here and it really isnt that tough .

GUARANTEED eh?

There was a 256k overlay in the $300 last FTOPS. That would make the Mohegan tourney not even the biggest overlay this summer.

If you want to count it, last year's UB Aruba tourney would've had a >1 mil overlay if they didn't renege on it last second.

I promise in the history of the world there have been other tournies with bigger overlays.

Im talking live overlays. Regardless of whether its the biggest ever or not, that is not the point. The point is that the lack of marketing, preparation and poor decision to make a huge Guarantee will have a negative impact on the Mohegan and other casino guarantees in the future. If you want to go tit for tat as to who has the biggest overlay in poker history, I have no interest. Way to go not getting the point and focusing on some meaningless statistic. Typical poker forum nit!

I didn't expect an overlay for this tournament, let alone one of this magnitude, nor did many of the in-the-know East Coast regs that I spoke to about it. Sure after the fact anyone can point to factors that may have contributed but I think it's fair to say that it came as a pretty big surprise. And LOL at "lack of marketing/preparation", do you really think there was a big group of local players willing to enter a $2K event who didn't play because they were unaware that the event was taking place?

mkind --

I googled for info about the Aruba overlay/cancellation you mentioned, but couldn't find anything. Can you (or someone else in the thread) explain what happened? UB just canceled the tourney after they realized there would be a big overlay? Or they reneged on a guarantee?
