BB Ante Tournaments are Nonsense

Yet another fad that'll come and go. It insults my intelligence why someone would create such a thing. DUCY?

Agree. I think it should be an UTG-1 ante.

Dealer ante IMO. Not the BTN, the actual dealer.

This is literally how the game was played in our high school breaks. Limit hold em with no blinds, average VPIP was about 60% I guess.

That's exactly it. There's enough action these days we don't need blinds. It's not like casinos need to stimulate action these days. DUCY?

This guy is trolling right?

Because if not, he is (trying to)insulting our collective intelligence. "DUCY OP?"

Re: BB Ante Tournaments are Nonsense

OP appears to have awoken from a dream, like in The Sleeper.

In today's tourney world BB Ante's are so good for the game, especially when half the table are so absorbed in their screens that they forget to ante Every. Single. Time. (which thanks to BB Ante is now only once per orbit instead of every hand).

Does the 650 in your name refer to the number of questions you need to be asked before you get to a goddamned point?
