Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

Is there any way that Party could just add traditional satellites for the Montreal 1k buy in event. The phase things are confusing to me and are likely even more confusing to a recreational player.

Just have the prizepool 1k (or whatever) and have direct sats at different price points.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

Dropping by to say that I’ve played 30k tournaments solely on Pokerstars the last few years , serious rec/ reg 6k up this year on Pokerstars through 3k tournaments,
Regardless am disillusioned with Pokerstars offerings and find nothing more infuriating than busting the 109 mini thrill , for example, to a 2 outer to then open a chest and recieve a 25 can’t tournament ticket.
Actually **** stars
Hearing this change and as a massive fan of pads’ blogs will solely move over to party for a while and give it another go.

Good work party , hope many many follow

Had this as well, 2nd week in a row. As I recall correctly precisely at the same time as last week. You're heading the good way Party, but the software still needs some improvements. This things shouldn't happen.

If you want people to be able to play quick/fun poker those formats are the best for that. You can even have "turbo" zooms with 3 minute blind levels where the tourny will likely be done within the hour, but people will play way more hands.
Any updates on what they thought? Positive or negative is fine, just want to know.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

My biggest issue with Party is all the 6Max games:

1) Firstly full ring is vastly more popular than 6Max so why on earth would you have roughly the same amount of full ring vs. 6max?

2) You have changed your standard table sizes from 9max to 8max which in and of itself reduce the "need" for 6Max games

3) You have more players complaining about the lack of games, a key part of that is that they don't play 6Max (at least in my case). So by reducing the 6max games; not by simply removing but converting them into full ring games accomplishes many things at once

4) I literally don't play any games on Party after 9pm UK time, not because i don't want to but because they are ALL 6max or Satellites. Last time i check, you have three 6max games, then three Satellites and then another three 6max games! And since you only have few tournaments running/registering consistently that's like five hours of not being able to play anything i like and this is going to be very bad when Recreational players experience this. They may play a few 6Max because there is nothing else to play but after that what will they do? Personally i would love a another "label of events" of full ring at around 10pm-11pm which would finish by around 2am-3am. Since you have the labels "Main Events" and then "Second Chance" why not label these new/converted tournaments into "Final Chance" for that time-zone of players

5) And even with all the superfluous 6Max games you have you even manage to have entire days geared towards 6max! I simply don't login into Party on those days which means you loose the rake on the 6Max that i don't like and then you loose out on the additional rake from the 8Max i would have happily played. Again I expect this to be quite a prevalent issue with both Regs and Recreational players

Have you gotten rid of fight night friday and KO monday? I liked them but I guess I won't complain since there's a decent offering of Knockouts.

Rare I say something positive here but WELL DONE for the change.
U had at some stages 4/7 days PKO, it s way better balanced with this correction.


1-Mix Max is the first creative thing in this new schedule. Requires different skills at different stages, like a SNG modern version so it will benefit good players i presume and the rec will see in that a new format to play.

2-Turbo Friday is balancing the slooooow Saturday so a good thing as well.

3- Any reason the 11$to55 sat kept the old structure 10K starting stack when all the rest moved to 100K. Nobody paid attention ?

+1000
I already have said this 2 times.
I like theme days but can`t understand why they change the entire schedule due to theme day.some weeks i play friday and tuesday some others wensday and thursday it depends.why not having everyday something to play??6max days some people don t like it. give a little something to full ring lovers.psko days give a liitle something to people don t like psko.turbo days give a little something normal and deepstack.(hate to say but like jokestars).
Also previous post about Sunday.everything i played went pretty good.do you think that if there where 2 5$ and 2 11$ more they wouldn`t perform well too??
I would prefer smooth friday and turbo saturday.many people go out at saturday so it would be nice an early turbo sess.
Big schedule hopes after monster and powerfest.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

Strange thing happened to me yesterday. I was not able to unregister a tournament.

It appears there is actually an unregistration period.
And according to support "be informed that in the majority of times the unregistration period is up until 5 minutes before the tournament, however, certain tournaments do not follow this general principle"

In my tournament I was half hour before start, but the unreg period was actually 34 minutes (13:56 for 14:30).

Why would you even do that ? It can only make players upset, right ?

I must just miss something.

Low stakes (probably mid too) sucks.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

Might be an idea to change late registration period for the $500+$30 millions satellite to a longer period - players can punt off more of the tickets they won that way every sunday and compete again next week. Players who build a backlog might stop playing for a while otherwise.

Re: Official partypoker/bwin 2.0 MTT Discussion Thread

I like the mix-max monday idea. Only problem I see is that it might be confusing for the recreational players when they check the lobby and it only says: "Qualification to day 2" in the prize pool section. There is no info on when "day 2" starts. This can be a major turn-off imo.

P.S props to pads for fighting for pko rake to be cut and props to party poker for following through! gracias

Well if we're being honest, I was only talking about the Sunday schedule since that's when I play on PP, but I liked the kickoffs, warm-ups and main events, all the way from Lows (the ones costing like $16,50 or so) up to the medium/highs ($109s and $215s). You mix in some of the good PS tourneys and the monitors are filled, which I like..

Only problem I have is the customizable table windows..

+1 to all of those points. Except that satellites during late evening is good, mainly because when I register at them I know that they won't last as long as regular tournament.

Yip, It's a major turn-off alright!

I saw these and had a look at the $11 version's lobby. It's left me utterly confused and i'm not playing them, for the following reasons.

It says "qualification to day 2", which to me tells me it's a 2 day event and I have no idea when the 2nd day is. It also says it will resume after a short break (which contradicts the 2 day thing) but, I have no idea how long that break is and i'm thinking it must be hours if it's a 2 day event.

It also says it's a $2k GTD but, when I viewed the lobby there was 1 person reg'd and the prize pool was only $10, which left me wondering where the other $1990 GTD is.

The levels only show as going to level 19 and it also says it's a phase event so, i'm left thinking there must be a phase 2 lobby somewhere but, I have no idea where.

Overall, the lobby info has given me mixed messages and left me completely confused. It put me off from playing immediately as, looking at the lobby and the info provided, I honestly currently have no idea as to what is actually going on with these MTTS.

Fyi Phase 2 (6max) starts within minutes after phase 1(8max) ends. GTD prize pool will be paid out no matter what.

This shouls be made very clear in the lobby
