Quick poll since wsop is considering bb ante for main event

In big blind ante, which team are you on? Team reduce - (half bb ante if shorthanded or short at final table) or Team non reduce - (Full bb ante regardless of how many players are at the table at any point in event.)

First to vote and first to post in what will, no doubt, be another riveting thread.

I prefer to reuse and recycle instead of reduce.

Reduce not reduce sounds so pessimistic, I'm more of a glass half full kind of guy

Really, you would do something that disrespectful to a Chainsaw thread ????

His insights into what the WSOP might be considering, or whatever he is trying to poll, should not be ignored because of some random bouncing breasts.... !!! Where are your priorities ?

Re: Quick poll since wsop is considering bb ante for main event

I personally feel BBA should only be used in faster 1 or 2 day events, or low buy in tournaments that attract a large % of recs. (Its the recs that slow the game down the most being asked to ante every hand)

I played plenty recently, and found it very good at speeding up the game (that and a 30 second shot clock in one event increased hands by approx 33%) That said, it was a 220 buy in with lots of recs.

I would say the Main doesn't need it, and that the BBA wouldn't speed up play that much, the biggest waste of time is the excessive tanking, and is becoming more of a problem.

The 2 hour levels provide an amazing structure, would be a shame to change it up to BBA, that said maybe the first 3 days could be BBA and then continue at the orignal format. Regarding the debate, halving the BBA when 5 or less best i feel.

To reduce or not to reduce, that is the question

What is the evidence that WSOP is considering this?

Nothing for attribution, just an inside scoop from OP....

(There actually may be a negative correlation between OP posting on some premise and the premise being true.)

There was a very short-lived poll on Twitter. I can only hope it does not come to pass...but that debate has been had enough times that it is not worth revisiting. It just makes for more cash game appearances and fewer tournament entries for me...

One might think that OP would cite the source for his premise, but not likely.

Accordingly, some bouncing boobs are the only value obtained by readers of the thread....
