Diamond *** Monster Series (Oct 2017) - Official Feedback Thread ***

Hello again, everyone! I'm pleased to announce that it's time to publish the current draft (Version 7) of the upcoming series on which I've been working.

All times in the schedule below are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -04:00). Guarantees for the tournaments within each Event will be posted when the tournaments are deployed to the partypoker client. Also, please note that there will be 2-Day Events, though these have not yet been set in stone.

Each Event is displayed as: Time (ET) - Event ## (Buy-Ins (low/med)): Format [N-Max (if non-standard), Variant (if non-vanilla), Speed (if non-Regular)]

If you'd like to provide feedback on the schedule, please reply in this thread. As always, thank you in advance for your feedback!

Re: *** Monster Series (Oct 2017) - Official Feedback Thread ***

looks good at first glance. good variety of events and buy in levels
You have to make sure it's supported by a good sattalite program. Mega sats would be ideal plus a variety of different sats not just endless hyper and turbo as per stars do.
I know you have tons of experience with this so I am sure it will happen.
The only thing I would say is I would prefer the psko to all be 50% and it would be nice to have one 8 game event or something
Not sure if party can support that at present.

Looks like a nice schedule.Will be fun to play x2 and x3 again with no rake on the rebuys.

I would of made the 33r x3 and 44r x3 regular reg speed rebuys instead.The average cost of these 2 is gonna average a high stakes price point for most players.

A regular 1r/11r on one of the sundays would be great

A 8 max hyper would be nice to play.

Have a $11/$109 warmup event to the main on final sunday?

Gonna be interesting what kind of gtds you go for with this series.

WOW!!! This seems like a stars schedule ;-)

Great work Bryan, I'm very curious how the regular schedule will look like after the summer. Very happy that those hypers + rebuys are back!

GG :-)

Re: *** Monster Series (Oct 2017) - Official Feedback Thread ***

Love it! Skipping ultra super bad Powerfest for this Too bad Party didn't fire their super incompetent MTT series team before Powerfest, but this looks good.

A little overlook: There seems to be no NL Omaha H/L. Is there restriction in software? If not, that should really be added and if possible, at turbo / hyper format. It is really action game. Maybe NLO8 rebuy escalator with 6 first levels 4 min blinds, levels 7-12 5 min blinds, levels 13-18 6 min blinds (18 lvl rebuy / add-on) and rest of the tournament 8 min blinds, 2,2$ / 22$ buy-in would seem excellent for it.

Although I have to say this format seems far too gimmick even for me: Limit Omaha HL [Progressive Knockout (75%). Reasons:

O8 as a split game is little problematic for PSKO already due to close probabilites for each hand, but this one... hard to get all-in, but when one gets, you have to play it every time because equities are far too close. Maybe could work with 25% PSKO, but this version just seems broken.

If there would be room for improvement that would be promotions. For last few months it has been clear that people deciding about promotions (or MTTs) at PartyPoker have had no clue at all, so it really would be seem like Party would need a lot of help at that matter.

Looks like a great schedule, loving the variety of formats and buy-ins! Pretty much nailed what the MTT community has been crying out for...

A couple of changes I'd personally like to see are

Tuesday 24 October 2017
14:00 - Event 20 ($4.40 / $44): NL Hold'em [6-Max, Progressive Knockout (75%)]
*Making this tourney a 25-50% PKO. Not a huge fan of 75% KOs, not to mention 6-Max will drive more action without the need for the larger KO making it a bit of a gamblefest. Don't mind some gamble here and there but it looks like this is the 'main event' for that day.

Sunday 29 October
10:00 - Event 46 ($1.10 / $11): NL Hold'em [Rebuy (4x), Turbo]
*Would love to see this become a reg speed 1r/11r with a good guarantee! Has the potential to be a great tournament!
