Blind Structure

Guys,

I have re done the blind structure. This is what it will be for the majority of tournaments but not every. Just give me some time to implement it into the tournaments gradually.

1 15 30 0
2 20 40 0
3 30 60 0
4 40 80 0
5 50 100 0
6 50 100 10
7 75 150 15
8 100 200 20
9 125 250 25
10 150 300 30
11 200 400 50
12 250 500 50
13 300 600 75
14 350 700 75
15 400 800 75
16 500 1000 100
17 600 1200 100
18 750 1500 150
19 1000 2000 200
20 1200 2400 250
21 1500 3000 300
22 1750 3500 350
23 2000 4000 400
24 2500 5000 500
25 3000 6000 600
26 3500 7000 700
27 4000 8000 800
28 5000 10000 1000
29 6000 12000 1500
30 8000 16000 2000
31 10000 20000 2500
32 12000 24000 3000
33 15000 30000 4000
34 20000 40000 5000
35 25000 50000 6000
36 30000 60000 7500
37 40000 80000 10000
38 50000 100000 10000

Re: Blind Structure

looks good, was actually fine with the old structure, but if this is what most people want it's fine with me. Whats with the 2 levels of 50/100 though? one with antes and one with no antes.

Just to make tournies play deeper. It is a slight gamble with regards to overlays having such a slow structure but my aim is not to have to rely on re entries. So a good slow structure grinders will want to play. Obvs with a better schedule

Re: Blind Structure

Well its an improvement. So this will be the structure for all mtts regardless of format/starting stacks?

One odd thing I noticed tho is with the antes. For the most part they are 20% of the small blind, which is ok. But then in a few instances they are like 16% and then jump back to 20% (ie levels 16, 17 and 18). Why not just keep the antes a standard percentage of the small blind, or if you are going to increase the relative size of the ante it should be done in a consistent, incremental way.

Not trying to nit pick, as I appreciate the work you are doing. Just something that kinda jumped out at me.

This wont be the structure for all mtts. It will be for the majority. I am not changing the structure for the satelites and i dont think that i will be changing the structure of the R/A's. As i mentioned putting this structure into the tournaments will probably reduce re entries which is a gamble as we need re entries to cover gtds. But my long term goal is to not rely on the re entries.

With regards to the antes, its just playing so deep at the start of the tournaments and the reason i mixed up the %'s is because i didnt want them getting too high later on. As a player i really like the structure and i am looking forward to seeing what kind of a difference it will make. I have made a new tournament for tomorrow to replace the 5k gtd at 7.00pm. Its now a $40 with a $10 bounty $3k gtd. This will be the 1st tourney this structure will be in.

There still is the 5k gtd at 10.00pm and i actually think the tournament will reach 5k if not more. My fingers are crossed!!

Re: Blind Structure

18-19 SEEMS WRONG TO JUMP 500 AND THEN 400 NEXT LEVEL
IMO SHOULD BE

6/1200
7/1400
8/1600
1K/2K

I guess the 750/1500 is usually 800/1600 on a decent amount of sites.

Some tourneys could also have 12 minute blinds too. If overlay becomes a huge problem. The structure would still be better because after two hours you would still have more BB and there would be no gross jumps.

The new structure looks great, but why not change the R/A's at all? As of now they play way too shallow at the FT and avg stacks are almost always <20bbs. I think leaving the early part of the structure is fine until after the 500/1k level. There is a big gap when it goes 400/800/100 to 500/1000/125 then all of a sudden jumps 500/1k --> 750/1500 --> 1k/2k. These jumps are too big when they usually coincide with the FT/right before the FT and reduce the avg stack significantly very quickly.
