Thought about $250K but I'm nervous a guarantee of that size (just 50ish needed to hit) cheapens the appearance of the tournament if that makes sense? We are taking a shot this year and if it draws well then we can gamble a bit next year!

Still being worked out - thinking of reg being open as long as you can buy in and have 8 - 10 big blinds which was similar to last year.

Thanks for your efforts Chris.
Have played the last two years but not liking the PLO/plo8 scheduling as others mentioned.
Would hate to go deep and miss the wsop 1500plo8. Will be in the wsop PLO but can't see me risking the above when there's a 425 one day plo8 event at Aria the day before the wsop plo8.

Chris, do you have the reference for the single day structures ? Again, what are the payoff percents for the single day events ? Thanx.

Still being worked out but leaning towards what we did last year for the structures and switching to 10% ITM

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2017

can u make restart of the plo8/plo ultimate goliath on 23rd earlier like noon or 1pm
we all that make day 2 from either starting flight want the chance to play the wsop 1500 plo8 event on23rd at 3pm. also the day1b is noon start so the turnaround from day1b to day2 would be fine. it makes it almost impossible to play ur event if we wanna play wsop, but if u move restart earlier by 2 or 3 hours it should work for anything but super deep runs.

looks like that is an error, we can make that restart noon on 6/23.

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2017

Thanks again for the feedback everyone! Two events have come into question.

PLO - PLO 8/B 6/21a 6/22b restart 6/23 The restart is currently scheduled for 3pm and will be moved to noon. Does that solve the problem or is a wholesale change needed?

GOLIATH PLO High Roller 7/12 Is this event better served to move to July 6th?

July 7th would be perfect Chris! Plan on playing 25k plo, so an extra day would be great. But July 6th would be better than where it is. Thanks for listening to the players!

Hey Chris- first a big shoutout to you for being the #1 TD to listen to players' feedback.

Unfortunately, I share the same opinion as An1mal- I just value the WSOP $1500 PLO8 too much (it's the #1 event I look forward to every year). Even with a guaranteed Day 2 money in your event and even if you bump up your Day 2 to noon, the easiest solution for us to not risk missing the WSOP PLO8 is to just go play the Aria one-day $465 PLO8. Maybe if that Aria event didn't exist I would've had to re-evaluate...

I know it'll be tough to move a 2 starting flight, 2-day event but if you want to reconsider, 6/14, 6/18, and 6/20 are the three dates still empty of PLO or PLO8 events in Las Vegas, if you can work any magic around those dates (though be warned of the WSOP 1500 PLO on the 21st). And 6/17 if you're like me and are too lazy to go downtown to Binion's.

As AllInTheDark suggested, I'd also strongly recommend 6/17-6/19 or 6/18-6/20 (but please not 6/19-6/21 because of the WSOP 1500 PLO). If you don't have the room/consecutive dates available, it's also not out of the question to make it a one starting flight, two day event.... (There is a Venetian $600 PLO Bounty on the 19th which is why I recommend 6/17-6/19 over 6/18-6/20).

Thanks for the Dealer's Choice events. Will they have the same game choices as the WSOP event?

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2017

I just have to echo the comments of akashenko.

You do a great job of listening to player feedback and adjusting and we all appreciate that... that being said the schedule has some big overlap issues with the Venetian and I feel it needs to be adjusted.

The Milly overlapping w Venetian MSPT 2.5 Milly is just a problem waiting to happen. Like was said at best it will split the player pool between the both and at worst this will be a dud. Def understand keeping the Colossus crowd around, but moving it a few days so it is possible to play both would go a long way. Same with several other overlapping events that he mentioned in his post, some of the 500ks, the main vs the 3500 3M etc.

Bc of "seniority" in a sense here is a heriarchy on Vegas poker tournaments for the summer. WSOP reveals their schedule, then Venetian looks at it and makes theirs accordingly and releases theirs.... and then you should look at both and make yours accordingly and release. This isn't saying the PH series is inferior, just it's a newer series so has to let the more experienced tourneys have first crack and schedule around them. I would like to see you guys do well and crush- but adjusting some dates on some of the big guarantees, taking both WSOP and Venetian schedules into considering would help a great deal imo. Just my 2 cents.

PLO move to 7/6 is PERFECT.

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2017

Maybe you could do a promotion for the PLO high roller where whatever the prizepool is this year will be the guarantee next year, sort of like the progressive guarantee promotion that certain poker sites have done to both boost hype on an event and set a realistic guarantee when they themselves are unsure what the actual turnout will be.

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2017

Chris, perhaps accelerating the structure for the 30 minute nlh tourneys which, if memory serves me right, lasted into the AM last year.

Planing for a 10-11 hour tourney would be appreciated, at least on this end. Thanx.
