Looks good, what happened to an increase in the Sunday $115K? Also, would be nice to have a big $11 on Sunday. Nice work overall!

+1 Think you could easily do a Big $11 30k gtd tourney on sunday that would be a bold move showing the world ACR is for real in competing with Pokerstars and whoever else wants to *** with us!

Otherwise def would love to see the Tuesday/Thurs $66 30k get a guarantee boost to say 40 or 50k. It usually gets to at least 40k most days anyways.

Love the direction this is all going tho, and thanks for the hard work Winning TD!

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

I'm going to be honest. While improvements are all good, I'm just mindblown by the fact that you're putting out the "Top 10" as is, flawed structure and all.

(Maybe since it was my idea that led to this MTT being implemented, I'm feeling salty that it's a poor implementation of what I suggested. And I could be wrong about this next thing but I'm convinced the price point isn't optimal either, but frankly, the awful structure is more important. Is Hand 4 Hand at least gonna start with 12 left?)

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

The additions that I like the most (besides the fact that they fit my own personal needs, let's be honest...) are the Monday mid-stakes events ($22 20k/$30 15k mainly) and the $11 10ks that start at the same time as the $66 30ks on Tues/Thurs. This coupling of similar stakes tourneys seems to work well on Sundays, glad to see that strategy being replicated. Also like the Fri $55 35k and Wed $15 15k, along w/ the early special. (And the 115k becoming 150k is great news as well.) A lot of strong additions that I hope work out well, good job W-TD.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Nice job.

I do think you could boost the schedule a little bit on Sunday, however, since I and many more US players like me, are regulated to weekend grinders. More traffic on Sundays will lead to bigger traffic overall, in my opinion.

My favorite two tournaments on Sundays are the $22 25k and $55 50k starting at 2pm EST. You could easily add in an $11 12.5k at the same start time, and bump the $5.50 and $3.30 (also at 2pm) guarantees up to 5k and 3k, respectively.

Since the $22 and $55 always meet the guarantees, the lower buy-in ones will have no problem reaching them, as well.

But overall, nice job!

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

WTD,

The schedule looks good! Thank you, for listening to your player base and making adjustments where YOU can...

Now if somebody over there would light a fire under the programming geeks and get them to sort the software gremlins out we'd all be G2G.

I'd also like to thank you for all of the behind the scenes work you put in with support issues. It's good to have you guys here sorting out what Live Chat and email support can't resolve. Much appreciated!

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

I typically play during the day if playing due to my work schedule is at night so i am pretty psyched at the new schedule for buyins $11 and lower. Here is my breakdown which is adding value during the day totally which I am pretty psyched.

OLD vs New
8AM EST 5.50 150 GTD is 5.00 500 GTD
10AM EST 1.10/72.60CP $300 GTD is 1.10/72.60CP $400 GTD
11AM EST 6.60 $500 GTD R/A is 6.60 $1K GTD
12PM EST 3.30 500 GTD is now 3.30 1K GTD
12:30PM EST 10.75 400 GTD KO 10.75 1K GTD KO
1PM EST 6.60 $1K is now 6.60 $2k GTD

The value is nice but they have been hitting these GTD's already on the existing schedule but now GTD is showing a target new for ACR to push it a bit higher. As a lot of other players when they see a 5.50 game with 150 GTD, it may have been a miss for a long time but now seeing 5.50 500 GTD is a reg. It's all perception.

NEW
9AM 11.00 1.5K GTD
10:30AM 11.00 2K GTD
12:00 PM $200 PLO8 R/A
12:45 PM 0.25 PLO R/A 6Max


I am really happy with the additional value on games in my buyin range. in particular the new category. I especially like PLO8 R/A and i actually may do the PLO R/A 0.25. I typically don't play PLO due to the higher buyins for the variant so am a bit happy to see it at least on the schedule. But the best is this game right here.

The Manic Monday 7:50 PM 0.25+0.03 NLO8 $150 GTD. I can see this GTD double or even triple as this is the variant becoming more and more popular these days.

Here are my little complaints or more less requests. I love the new structure but is there any Top10 for micros? The Micro Monday would be nice for 1.10 for 100 for top ten . I do have a feeling that the 11.00 Top10 1000 could be doable as well. I don't see that it would overlay.

I would agree. I do like how Pokerstars does the Sunday storm for 11bucks. I would like to see a $11 10K or even 7.5k game on the Sunday schedule. I typically just don't play on Sundays for the micros isn't really that great.

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Like someone else above mentioned obv good they added more but a lot are just smaller GTD or gtds to existing tourneys that already cover well above. What about more daily gtds like the 50k? Have those 2x a week or something.
Or a monthly 300k??

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Hi all and best of luck in 2017.

I play from Europe and playing almost everything $33 and above. This new schedule looks better, but have some flaws from my perspective. Maybe this can help TD to improve it even more with these couple of tweaks:

1. I don't think Early special and $109 5k will survive if you don't cluster few more tourneys with $33> BI from 8am - 10.30am. There is no point in logging in for just 2 tournaments this early. Not for regs already playing WPN or new Euro regs that you want to attract to your site.

2. There is a gap in old and new schedule for mid/high stake grinders from 3.30pm to 5pm that could easily be filled with let's say $55-$109 daily special with progressive GTD(like 115k sunday special only smaller).

Regards,
MorbidTurn

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Nice $109 NLO8.

I am wondering if you can add more low-mid stakes PLO8 and NLO8 tournaments. The range you currently offer is quite polarizing; it's either micros ($2.20 or lower or $16.50+). The only exception is the $7.70 PLO8Turbo.

Would you be able to add some $5.50-$22 range games? Specific suggestions that come to mind are:

23:05 EST - $22 PLO8 Reg Speed
0:05 EST - $11 NLO8 Turbo
0:35 EST - $7.70 NLO8 Hyper Turbo

I noticed that the $7.70 and $16.50 on Demand SNGs fire off a lot during midnight and this would give players more reasons to play during this period.

I agree with this and have been telling to close people for a while.

Other point that i also would like to mention is the structures.

I understand that the blinds jumps when out of late reg in the mtts below 22$ are not like that by accident. You guys want them to be like that so the games can take less time and customers buy in in other tourneys in the time they have available to play but that's a flawed logic. You don't have other tourneys for people to play in the same buy in range for a period of 8h+ so there's no point in ruining a product and offer a mediocre experience to customers. The actual structure is:

350/700
400/800 end of late reg
500/1000
750/1500
1000/2000

After the late reg tourney is a crap shot with 90% of the field with less than 15bbs.
You are well known for offering good structures, playable ones, deep stack poker. Dont change and start getting greed just cause you are growing, dont be like pokerstars, keep doing what you know better...please.

Last thing i want to mention is the late night schedule. The new one is better but PLEASE, dont make 3h late reg tourneys after 9pm. Its bad for Americans, its bad for Europeans. Set 2h as the max late reg period for mtts after 9 pm.

hugs and kisses

Re: LINKS TO 2017 SCHEDULE!!!!!

Tomorrow's tournament is still listed as a $115k guarantee. Is there a conflict with the Sunday schedule you post?

EDIT: nevermind! I see that this is the schedule starting on Monday, the 9th.

Thanks!
