I think it's working pretty well, 16 of the 19 5/10 tables running are 50 bb

Re: Stars Shortstacking Boycott starts TONIGHT

first of all, at 5/10 there aren't usually enough games to play the 50 bbs exclusively. Also, there's something enticing about completely ending the shortstackers ability to profit from their ratholing

ya I wasnt saying that there was no need for an effort to be made to increase the use of 50bb min tables, a lot of ppl just seem a little too gung ho about ostracizing anyone who plays at a normal table.

Re: Stars Shortstacking Boycott starts TONIGHT

I am with futuredoc. We said we will play exclusively 50bbmin tables for a week. After two days most of us (including me) started playing normal tables also if the games were good. We lost enthusiasm because of a bad start. This is wrong.

Re: Stars Shortstacking Boycott starts TONIGHT

I mean we didnt kill off the little buggers but i DEFINETELY think that there are more 50 bb tables running on average then before. I personally started up tables a ton of times, and would fire up 8-12 tables ALL HU at 2/4 to start tables. Sadly most people wont play hu so its tough to start.

DId we end shortstacking? No, But did we increase the 50 bb tables by a lot? Definetely.

Just keep it up, the change will be slow not immediate, but more and more people will join the 50bb tables and as long as regs keep starting them the tide will swing our way.

you have to sit down at a normal table if it's good, but if we can help it, always always find and sit at a 50bb min table

cheers
