He said small changes to start.

Okay so there are 2 micro buy ins early in the day which I discounted, maybe that's not totally fair but I did so because most casual players have a job during the day, so I looked at prime time hours when the majority of casual micro players will be around itching to play a little poker. Also, they are both formats that aren't the first choice of most casual players... PLO8 R/A, and 6-max NL.

So what we have later in the day:
5:45 $22 R/A
8:15 $11 (good, I think the casual players will like this one)
8:45 $55
10:00 $33 Turbo
10:15 $7.70 PLO 6-max (the only buy in below $10 during prime time and it's not NLHE... don't get me wrong, I like this one personally but that's not the point)
11:15 $27.50

So my suggestion is to try adding these, and also add (with 1/10th the gtds):

5:45 $2.20 R/A
8:15 $1.10
8:45 $5.50
10:00 $3.30 Turbo
10:15 no new addition leave the 7.70 PLO stand alone
11:15 $2.20

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

Can you squeeze in 75-100$ BI 6max, 10k or even 20k SS, 1h LR in 16.30 or 17.30 and make it daily special? This could run with low guarantee as a start and have a progressive guarantee same as Sunday special.

I'm sure that all mid/high players would love this one!

If You start with 20 or 30$ hyper sats 1n 16.00 this one could easily reach 40-50 entrants on it's first day. #flyingguruwouldlovethis1

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

How about no guarantee? If its not important then we can have it there and see how it goes.

I agree, 66$ in 15.00 gets about 70 entrants every night and when you started it was about 40-45. With enough hypers to feed it this one could run really well.

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

Here's the thing I want this to do well. The TD has constantly said 6 max isn't popular I disagree with that statement especially at the higher buyins, without a guarantee though I don't see it getting interest and thus reaffirming TDs assumption abour 6 max. Who knows when the next time we get a crack at a 6 max it would be great to have set up to succeed from the beginning.

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

Any chance of getting a hyper turbo without the super stack? I see these but just for sat's for some reason.

Heads up tourney?

Some tourneys that don't have rebuy or reentry, just one entrance?

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

A horse tourney would be fun. Also incorporates limit and stud into 1 instead of 2 separate as mentioned earlier. Would attract curious fish and sharp regs. Really like the headsup idea, could even be hyper. LOVE the freezeout and single reentry ideas.

I am not a reg, I play when my work schedule allows, with the hopes of making a few nice scores. I agree with sparten and others about many sentiments. I really don't have time to play a $5 tourney that starts before dinner and doesn't end til a point that I'm only getting 3 hrs of sleep before work...the wife is not too happy either...long late reg kills any desire to play. Plus ima degen, I like to know I can fire up another one or two before bed if the first few go bad.

Re: the freezeouts, personally its a lot more fun to watch the money bubble knowing that you're 5 away from bursting and not having to worry about 30 ppl joining in the last 5 min of late reg. Sometimes those guys late regging with 5 BBs will spew but I don't want to play my hands differently on the bubble because of all the late reg short stacks

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

+1 on a nightly limit tournament!

$5 would probably be a good price point to maximize participation in the beginning.

Mon Limit Hold 'em
Tue Limit Omaha 8
Wed Limit Stud
Thu Limit Stud 8
Fri HOSE or HORSE
Sat HOSE or HORSE

Carbon has a good sample of limit tournaments, but I'd rather play on WPN.

+2. i'd likely play these every night. even at low/no guarentee at the beginning. no risk of overlay and if they become popular could be a nice addition to the schedule

Re: 60 min LR MTT;s

As much as i like for them to add other variations lets just take this one step at a time. First lets make sure these tournaments hit their guarantees so they can eventually raise them which will attract more of a player pool then when player pool increases then they can add other variations.

We are talking about adding 1 small tournament a day. This could actually help the other tournaments make their guarantees because it could encourage deposits from players who are currently enjoying these games on Carbon Poker and Bovada. And it would be easy to do, because cash versions of these games are already offered.

no offense but i don't think people are gonna leave Bovada for 1 small tournament of horse that probably would have most likely a $150 gtd or LESS.

These are the steps we need to follow.
1. Have a successful debut of these tournaments.
2. Eventually make them daily tournaments.
3. Increase jackpots if the tournament is regularly beating the guarantee.
4. Start converting some of the other tournaments into 1-2hr Late regs.
5. If player pool increase then add other variations.

I disagree with this, but I digress.

I'm hoping WPN adds other variations to appeal to a broader player base immediately.
