Hi Sirswish6,

We are reviewing our whole tournament schedule at the moment and looking to make huge improvements for you guys. so nothing is gone for good and we are trying to get as much input form the players as possible.
So thank you as I presume you like these 2 tournaments?

Thanks
Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

While i imagine it's too late to change the Micro Series, Some of these are either too fast or way too slow. The sats are just too fast with way to long LR. I was at the FT of the #15 PLO R/A 6 hours in 3 handed and it could have gone another 3 hours if we didn't deal.

It was already so late and the blinds were going up 1k every 10 min...so slow. I mean having 100bbs at a FT is crazy. IT started at 10pm EST and we made a deal at 4am EST. I won't be playing any of those like that. Not worth the time or the money, in the end it makes people hate poker for the grind it can be. It wasn't really fun for anyone once it got down to around 10 players, we were just hoping it would end. Good thing you have deal making.

One of the reasons i started playing on BOL was the faster blinds and shorter LR. Now it's more like WPN, which i don't like.

Hey Windpspro hope all is well and congrats on the chop.

We are aware of these issues and I had already relayed this info to the correct team. We will be changing and improving the structures as we move forwards.
Please give me information like this for the rest of the series or any of our tournaments, so I can get it changed for the better.

Kind Regards
Mike

Any thoughts to some more game choices? Perhaps like Stud or triple draw?

Hey everybody,

How are you all enjoying the Micro tournament series so far?
Specific tournaments you like/dislike?
Structures possible tweaks to make things better?
Nice results you want to share?

Kind Regards

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

the boost tourney's structure was a little too good, usually those types of tournaments are 5 min levels and they'll still play like a normal structure since you see so many hands

I'm really enjoying the micro series so far! I personally enjoyed playing deep-stacked PLO btw. Any chance some of these will be added as daily mtts beyond the series?

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Tournaments Thread

The Micro Stakes promo seems to be working somewhat as far as bringing new recs to the site. I say this because I've seen a few new fishy cash players showing up at the microstakes tables for short periods, which usually means they're just waiting for a tourney to start. I hope that you're promoting the series really hard so that more recs will try the site and then hopefully stick around.

Unfortunately, microstakes cash is still really slow right now compared to what it had been. Yes, I know it's summer, and others have said traffic is slower based on that, although I don't remember this steep of a traffic dropoff on other sites where I've played previously. Did you maybe just kicked a bunch of bots off the site, which would be great ?

I think overall the Micro Stakes tourney promo is good because it gives the site the chance to see how microstakes players react to the different games and formats that the promotion offers. I just wish there were more scheduled in the mid to late afternoon, which is when I usually play.

NO matter what tournament runs, you guys need to fix the break times. If someone takes a long time you end up with less than a 2 min break. It should start when all the tables are done.

You get more play in the way it currently is and if you play 2 or more tables its likes that anyway

I like the variety, like i said before, I'm all about alt games. Give me Omaha/O8/FL/6+/mixed games in many forms. I know i'm the minority, but other US sites mainly focus on how many ways you can play NLHE...Yawn!

You have #36 event listed as FHLE, ovbiously FLHE.

The thing again that annoys me is the small increase in blind levels. Playing the #23 level 25 has a jump from 3600 to 4000...that is just so slow. 40 people left and almost all are 30+bb's most are 50+ and several are 100 BBs. At the very least increase the jumps after LR, IMO they should be going up 1.5k or so at this level. at level 25-29, they go up just 1k at a time. In non ante games this is even slower.

I'm sure some people like it this long...of course I prefer turbo's because I don't like spending my whole night/morning playing.

If micro players knew how to play late game, this would take much longer hehe.

Hello!

Can we please fix this time bank issue that has gone on for a while? The time to act and bank itself is way too short.

There was one Micro that had a TB of 30-60sec which was nice.
I don't remember which one.

I'm guessing not a lot of people will play #31 with .50 +.50 rake @Betonline Mike

It would be nice also if they added things in between $5-$11. $7 or $8 tourneys here and there would be nice.

How do you guys decide which mtt's you can buy in for with player points? It is a cool feature, but sucks you can only use them for certain mtts. Should be able to use them for all tournaments, and for rebuys in rebuy tournaments.
