New tourney in replace of $5k gtd $100 7.00pm ET

Guys,

I have replaced the $5k gtd with a $40 buy in $10 KO 6 max at 7.00pm ET.

This is also the 1st tournament where i have implemented the new blind structure so its a big test to see how we do.

5k starting stack 15 min blinds.

The $5k gtd will still run at 10pm ET.

glgl to all the play

I should say that this is only on Saturdays, not during the week!

$3k GTD is a good spot there I think. The $5k at 7pm EST (Saturday's included) generally feature overlays more often than not. Not that that is bad, but...as long as it's part of a new daily schedule initiative, ultimately I think it will be a good thing.

Re: New tourney in replace of $5k gtd $100 7.00pm ET

Yeah I played it. Not sure if I would again. Got coolered in a standard spot, re entered. Had 108$ invested, cashed and lost money. Woulda needed to finish in 8th place to break even. Risking $108 to win like 800 isn't really what I call a tremendous value. But I'm not really a fan of bounties either so take my opinion fwiw.

Structure wise it was pretty good. Played rather deep. 6max is great too. Guess I'd just rather see all the money go into the prizepool.

My opinion on bounties are just don't make them too much of the prize pool. The old FTP ones with 20+4 bounty +2 rake were cool. The 5 + 5 + 1 format kinda sucks. Also maybe the bounty part shouldn't be raked. I think the recreational players will love the bounty and the grinders who generally don't love bounties will not care cause the bounty portion is an unraked bonus.

Just some random thoughts. I'm probably gonna play in it either way as long as the bounty isn't more than 25% of the buyin.
