Can we talk about the horrible late night MTT schedule?

I made a post about this in the MTT thread that got buried, and I feel this discussion deserves a thorough discussion due to the current poor state of the late night schedule. For example, here is the guarantees that start on Ignition vs WPN on or after 9pm EST until 1am EST:

Ignition
4k GTD $22
8k GTD $55
4k GTD $22
10k GTD ($109)
2.5k GTD $11
1k GTD $7.70
3k GTD $44
3k GTD $33
1k GTD $16.50
5k GTD $82
0.5k GTD $7.70
5k GTD $11
1.5k GTD $16.50
4k GTD $11
=$52,500 in guarantees

WPN (using Manic Monday late night schedule)
=$22.6k in guarantees

WPN has to do better than this. I'm a late night player myself and I literally only play one late night tournament (the $5k hyper, which crushes its guarantee nightly) and put in the rest of my volume on Ignition. I desperately want to play more on WPN. Let's discuss what we can do to fix this.

I think they should at least try out some more higher guarantee turbos considering the $5k hyper smashes the guarantee every night - the demand is clearly there.

if that happened I wouldnt complain. But also, not complaining about what is available now. I'm just happy to be an american and able to play poker online, and have reliable fast cashouts. Sure, it isn't perfect, but be happy with the limited options that you have.. a site that is "not too bad/pretty good" and reliable, and has improved over the years and still is.

Not complaining, but adding tournaments that hit guarantees and offer more variety are a win/win for everybody. Would at least like to see some more experimentation with the late night schedule than the status quo.

all you have to do is get a bunch of players who want to play in the middle of the night to sign up, deposit, and play. should be super easy.

Thanks for stopping by to relay your incredible insight into the problem without reading anything in my OP.

Re: Can we talk about the horrible late night MTT schedule?

A lot of the late night mtt especially the turbos have been crushing the GTD which should be a sign to throw more GTD late night. The 1:30am/est 800gtd is getting 2000-2500 prize pool almost every night. I also would like to see a final table only payout mtt /turbo they had them on full tilt and pokerstars and were pretty popular and would crush the gtd. I msg wpn rep with some ideas and suggestions. They seem player friendly and have took a lot of suggestions from players from 2p2 and from email. I also would like to see a turbo series maybe in oct or nov before the holiday.

Pokerstars had a great late night schedule cause Europeans were playing at that time. Since this is mostly Americans WPN can't afford this

The evidence suggests otherwise. The $16.50 turbo and the $20+1 hyper turbo absolutely smash their guarantee every single night. There is clearly a demand there.

Re: Can we talk about the horrible late night MTT schedule?

Hey there. Is that how the daily schedule looks on a daily basis?


How are the tournaments before that? I assume the gtds are really low etc? Are there any 11-55 dollar tournaments that start before that?


Also i recalled bovada used to have a daily 55 30k tournament. So that has not been there for a long time i assume? I also recalled wasn't the daily 11 dollar buyin had either a 7k or even 10k gtd? But i assume since they switched to ignition, they dont have enough players for that? I found out i have to create an ignition account in order to view the schedule. I had thought i could view the schedule with my old bovada account but theres no more bovada.

+1

WPN smashes their guarantees in all the MTT's I see. Why not slowly build up their schedule?!

Late night turbos would definitely be appreciated.

Re: Can we talk about the horrible late night MTT schedule?

$33 Hyper Turbo Mega Stack (~$7500 gtd)
$55 & $109 6 max's w/ 5 or 10k starting stacks ($4k & $8k gtd maybe?)
I think some tiered turbo KO's would do well, 16.50/27.50/55
$33-55 version of the wednesday $88 PLO

just some suggestions that might be popular. think they're doing a great job with the mtt schedule/variety already but I agree that some additional late night options would be nice to see

These might be a bit ambitious. Just do some fun style turbos ( micro addonrebuys, PLO hyper, 10 cent $1k with high blinds for like an hour before reg closes so its a shove fest, etc) and people WILL play these. Ignition's turbos at night do great and WPN has almost nothing.
