I appreciate the detailed response mamelas. I guess we'll just have to see how it goes.

Yes, when you reg tournaments all day you think about these things lol. Anyway, it seems like it was for not, as I'm checking the lobby now and a lot of the older tournaments are still on the schedule. Sometimes they don't pop up right away until a couple hrs before regging begins. Still interested to see how these new ones will compare and as you said, we'll see

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

I certainly don't check the MTT lobby as often as you, but I have noticed how some tournaments aren't listed too far in advance. I'll check early in the day some times to see if there's anything I might be interested in playing later. Then I'll check later and see a few I didn't notice earlier. I'm not sure why they don't just list everything they plan to run a day or two in advance.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

I like the new tourney additions. It looks like they did take a few away, like the $33 $2,500 at 9 pm eastern. But they also added some. Like replacing that 9 pm tournament with an $11 $2,000.

The $7,500 $11 rebuy at 8:30 pm eastern is still there. Now it's called the rebuy frenzy lol.

Overall, I think the changes are a positive.

Disclaimer: I hardly ever play on the weekends.

They ruined it. The 2.20 for 1k gtd are gone. The 6.60 for 3k gtd is gone. They are removing all the ones that got players playing mtts on bol. All the ones they got now really aren't worth playing imo. I might have to put money back on the dreaded acr cause of these changes. I am only registered in 1 mtt right now. Before today i was playing 8-10 a day. I am withdrawing some of my money but leaving a few bucks on hoping they change it back in the future.

The 7.5k was a $11 R+A and now a $109 R+A. The 5k was a $11 and now a $55 re-entry. It's like this all across the board and you can see how it is seemingly less value. Each of these* tournaments before today's change would make the GTD 95% of the time and consistently crush the GTD.

I'm not 100% sure how this will play out, but it seems to me intuitively that these tournaments will get less volume, which could be good, as far as smaller fields, but worse that the GTDs won't be met and the site will have to restructure their schedule again (if they do it will be the 4th time this year).


I understand they likely did this because they've failed to meet GTDs on the weekends on the bigger mtts (the 40k overlays almost 100% and the 100k last month had about 40k overlay) but they are going about it in the wrong way. They should keep the 3-10ks the same buyin (and preferably change the daily 10k from $44 r+a to a $22 r+a, while adding 30 mins more of late reg and/or giving more starting chips) and lower the 40k on the weekend to a 30k and the 15s to 12.5k. Charging people more for the same tournaments aren't the answer to makeup for money. Change the structures/starting stacks to accommodate, so more people will join and/or rebuy.
they still have the 11 dollar 7.5k gtd

I did it once, they asked for my screenname and didn't reply after that) However, I will send another one, why not?
