Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

^^

I think phase tournaments would work out really, really well for WPN. Maybe do an $11,$66, and $215 to all culminate on Sunday, prize pools would be huge.

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

Satty OD games for pure tourney bucks. Accumulate them and then use them to entire games of choice. Might bring some smaller stake players into bigger games and build their confidence. It could give a micro player the ability to play in medium stakes + games.

Like mentioned above, the 7.5K SKO PLO on Saturday night should definitely draw interest with any satellite.

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

How bout combat point sit n go's, HU, or even MTT's? I think it was PS that had this and/or carbon?

Sometimes when the roll is low its nice to still be able to play with something to gain.

Imagine a 100 point buy in mtt with 1000 entrants...thats a pretty sweet 100k point prize pool.

Why doesnt wpn basically try to imitate pokerstars tournametns? I mean wpn is allowed in row and most of the us. I mean, shouldn't that mean they could get a ton of players?

I know, right, they should just make every tourney a kamikaze winner takes all.

God this thread is ridiculous.

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

I just opened bcp after not looking at it for a while.


Can someone explain to me why they still have those long late reg? I notice many tournaments have 3 hours which seem reasonable... then many have 5 hours. Well i looked at many of these tournaments and after 7 hours... no one has even made the money yet. Is there really anyone that likes playing wpn mtt? these are basically super deep structures.


The thing is i looked at the low stakes 5 and 10 dollar tournaments on wpn. These basically take at least 10 hours to win a tournament. There is nothing wrong with that except look at the guarantees on these compared to other sites etc...

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

The long late reg is so the GTDs get met. Personally I like having the choice to play poker by registering early or gamble by registering late.

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

Like SERIOUSLY.

Guys its been 5 YEARS since you started growing,
you guys fixed avatars, lobbies, got some growth. Good Job.

You guys fail to do the basics, like replenishing timebanks w blind levels for major tournaments. I would much prefer to have no avatar and not be able to see prizes for 18th+ place and have time to make big decisions late in a massive tourney like the milly.
PLEASE GET THIS DONE

something like 15 seconds added every 3 levels with a 120second cap would be more than sufficient. It is absurd to have to wait for a FT of a sunday million to get replenished.

Re: WPN Multi-Table Tournament discussion thread

Why do people play tournaments with several hours of late registration? I'll tell you why I do. I understand that I'm in the minority on this issue.

--------------

DISCLAIMER: I haven't played any of these lately. It's just too much exposure the way things have been going, too much chance of being caught in a lag or crash when I've played for several hours and I'm close to the money or the final table. I'll get back to it when I'm reasonably sure that I can play an 8-hour tournament (or longer) with no problems. At the very least, I check the ACR/WPN threads and only go for it if there has been more than a day or two with no problems.

--------------

To make it simple, I play very deep because I believe that it's the best way to maximize my profits, and because I love playing deep tournaments. I love the challenge of getting through a field of hundreds of players (or more.)

I've always liked deep structures. That probably goes back to when I could play on PokerStars and I got my first "big" cash. I played for six hours and final-tabled a $3 tournament for more than 100 buy-ins. I was hooked. I wanted big prize pools and deep structures.

When I say that playing very deep is the best way to maximize my profits, I'm in a unique situation to be able to do that. I know that doesn't apply to most of you.

I am a full-time player and completely in charge of my own schedule. I can play at 3 AM or 3 PM, it doesn't matter. The huge variance of playing those tournaments isn't a issue because our financial situation is stable. My wife has a great job with a big health care company.

Along with her job comes great insurance:, medical, dental, optical, perscriptions, the whole thing. We are far from wealthy but we are comfortable and have no debt. We have money in the bank and money set aside for retirement (my wife has had a company retirement plan for 48 years.)

I am retired military and I'm collecting that retirement pay. When my wife retires we will be able to travel cheaply (casinos, here we come) because we can catch a free ride on any military flight in the US with space available.

Given all of the above, a downswing isn't very scary. It's not really an issue anyway, because I play with at least 100 buy-ins.

I have an edge when I play very long tournaments. Many players don't prepare or know what they are getting into, or they just get tired or impatient. None of that is an issue for me. I plan everything.

I make sure that I'm rested. I often take a nap before a multi-hour tournament. Whether that tournament is live or online, I have everything covered. I have food and drink planned out. I have extra clothes available if it gets too hot or too cold. I'm in it for the long hall and I often go for a month without missing a poker hand.

That's my story, If you want to play hyper turbos or turn over a bunch of SNGs for rakeback, or if you just don't like long tournaments, do what works for you. I want a boatload of chips and a big prize pool.
