The MICRO series coming up looks great. But...I'm sure people would love it even more with some bigger buy ins and bigger guarantees. Now is the time to capitalize on America's Cardroom pooping the bed.

Lots of players have come over to BetOnline and we are needing some bigger re-entry type events.

We introduced a few short tournament series for the first time this year. A Bounty Tournament series (King of Thrones) in April and a 3-day Turbo Series in May both very successful. The next one is our Micro Series (June 17-30) and we are already working on a full tournament series with exactly what you are asking for . Should be announced over the next 2 months, so stay tuned!

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

A higher buy-in tournament series would be great. More regular, daily or weekly mid- and higher-stakes tournaments would also be good. Also, I believe there's currently a fast-fold heads-up tournament at around a $2 buy-in. It would be great to see a version of this at a mid or high stakes buy-in, as well as other fast-fold tournaments (e.g. 6 max or full ring).
Also, as some feedback, it seems like the structure of some of the bounty tournaments is currently too slow (thinking of the nightly $22 and $33).

Also, it would be nice to see a recurring mid- or high-stake O8 and PLO tournament in the evening; also maybe a higher guaranty PLO tournament to run aside the big Sunday tournaments at around a 50-100 buy-in
Also, it would be nice if deal-making were an option for all tournaments, not just the dailies

Hence the name Micro series, I like the fact that they mix it up at different times. Good money in micros. I wish they would add Limit and Mixed games though.

Is there a reason PLO8 tourneys don't run on the weekends?

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

You guys changed the $5 bounty to 4 max, We can't get one that was the 6 max or full ring like before? I use to play that a lot. Not sure this trend to make bounties 4 max. The more players at a table, more dynamic and chances to bounty up.
Don't get me wrong, i like 4 max sometimes, just not in place of 6 max/full ring bounty.

You have more opportunity to "bounty up" in a 4max than 6max/9 man.

Ranges are wider and people are all in more frequently with more hands.

I like the 4 max. I just don't play it because it requires more focus. If it was a $22/$33/$55 I would.

I agree that the reg speed K.O.s are too slow.

Mike, will there be a leaderboard for the MICRO series?

You maybe right, my exp over the years is 4-max is more bingo but I will try to play it more and find out.

Hi Guys Just a quick update for the new series coming up. With some new exciting promotions.

1) Bubble Refund: Every player that bubbles will be refunded their buy-in at the end of the series.
2) All players who participated in the micros and did not cash will all be entered into a free roll at the end of the series.

Hope to see you all crushing the series.
And I am sure we will have more great promos during the series.

Regards
Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

After playing the PLO bounty 6 max turbo...you have to get this on a regular sched IMO, Also PLO8. It's pretty fun and not any places that i know of for the US that offers it. @BetOline Mike

Not really a fan of these Micro Series hyper sat's. Turbos, yes with decent jumps, but a hour long hyper rebuy sat??? A little much.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

Hey Mike,

Im glad this site has picked up in volume as it's my favorite to play, so I look forward to future for the site.

1. I think there is enough volume that we could crush the guarantees for some of the weekend mtts if they were run daily. For instance, before you guys settled on this current schedule the Sat and Sun nighttime 5k GTD $11r+a ran during the week and it always met the GTD, as it does on the weekend. Also, id think if another r+a mtt around the 22-33$ range were added as an additional 7.5-10k it would be a success and BOL would receive an additional 1k in rake+ a day from this.

2.Timebanks have always been short and could use an adjustment, especially for higher buyin mtts.

3. Balance final 2/3 tables according to stacks. Many times ill see the top 3 and 4 stacks on one table when its near the FT. Idk if this is a thing or not, but it bothers me.

Thanks for your time.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

People seem very worried about GT's. Give me a well rounded blind structure, good variety with avg payouts and i'll play them. Up these GT's over what the traffic allow and then we get WPN with 3-5Hr LR snoozefests. Sure, having a big tourney on Sunday might attract more people which is fine. It does nothing for me, I just want a well structured daily lineup I can pick and choose to play.

yea a nightly 33R or 22r 10k would be nice to go in between the 55r 15k and 11r 7.5k

Hello Mike,

I would state it is a good step to have official BetOnline Representative in this forum. The Micro Series is a great step in competing with your competitors.

The only issue was Hyper Turbo (53 cent buying) should be been one-hour late reg instead of two. You had one five blinds for your starting stack when you brought\ re-buying into the MTT. I would suggest change the blind structure or shorten late reg to one hour.

Thanks,

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournament Improvements Thread

As others mentioned, would love to see a tournament series run with some events on top of the regular schedule or boosting up the amount GTD significantly (East coast friendly please ). Announce something at least a couple weeks in advance so you guys have time to run satellites to all of the events and let the freeroll/micro grinders try to win their way in. Would like to see more $11, $22, $33 re-buys as well.
