Apparantly the 11r at 21 cet is on the rebound with the new structure. On sunday it reached a 62k pricepool. Seems like the new structure is getting on well

The 22 SKO and 320 sat SKO are super popular. Give the people what they want. and it doesn't matter if the kos are relevant late since they aren't raked

Never disagreed with the 320 SKO its an ok tourney and decently popular.
Still there is no way stars is going to introduce more of them because they arent nearly as popular as other formats

but yeah lets just agree to disagree on the topic and see what time will bring

But you should try nlo8 hypers and its not going to be easy to find outside PS
The point is that because of the big number of split pots and as the preflop all in equites run much closer than in nlh a rec player going to be all in much more in one mtt on average than in an nlh hyper mtt and more all ins means more excitement and psko makes it even more exciting.

How about adding another nlo8 hyper psko mtt to the schedule besides the $82 one for a test period? BI and time doesnt matter because iam quite sure that its going to be a success anyway and not gonna affect badly any other mtts.

Pls don't, they're fine as they are IMO. Though I think you should remove one or two MTTSNGs in the night to provide more traffic to the other ones, e.g. 2.50 90-man is almost never starting after 22:00 CET. On Demand SNGs are a great idea to fix the nightly MTTSNG schedule.

then please replace some existing 3x turbos with 4x, the playing experience in them is far superior (don't see how you could argue the other side even). All the feedback I found is agreeing also

Just tossing my hat into the ring of "I enjoy SKOs". It's different because of how much you win for KOs at the start.

It's OK to have different formats, especially when they are popular. the 22 and 10.5sko are wildly popular so I don't see why changing them is required. tbh I'd love to see another one somewhere on the daily schedule.

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/11)

hello @pokerstars luke,
I must say that the communication you have been giving us is great and appreciated. please continue this.

I would like to know yur thoughts

We've now run a full week of $1.10 and $7.50 Bounty Builders without hybridization. Their participation increased 8.1% and 6.8% respectively. We'll likely be removing the hybridization from Bounty Builders until we are able to control how they are visible in the client. This change will take some time due to requiring an update to web content and all of the tournament scripts.

in an earlier quote from you,... you say something along the lines of the minis wouldn't perform as well because of the promo and tickets added......

the data suggests that bb's without tickets are successful.

perhaps this translates that minis to to st/tt/kick off/wu/million could perform well even without promo tickets.
I would really like for you to rethink your stance on the minis and for 1 week add them to the schedule and see what data suggests.
the demand is here for them.
not like it would hurt anything.

would like to add my disappointment that micro million isint running until july.

but am very happy to say that I suffered no lag on sunday and actually played some mtts.

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/19)

Would it be possible at all to implement something so that in rebuy tournaments we instantly rebuy as soon as we enter? Late regging and being dealt cards immediately without the option to rebuy is sometimes very tilting

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/19)

Hi stars reps.

I used to play a reasonable amount of 08 sngs. When you introduced hypers it immediately became the most popular 08 format. With the destruction of BoPs, the introduction of Spin and Goes and the awful rakeback structures, personally I have gone from semi rec/reg to barely a rec. It does make me sad there isn't much incentive for me to play anywhere near as much as i used to play on Stars.

What us recs want though is a quick, easy and enjoyable format and that is hypers across the board whether that is mtts or sngs. With the aim of encouraging more recs and reducing the gap in skill levels as a business strategy, hypers fits in perfectly with that model. The chance to win big through lower buy in regular hyper MTTs would make me play more.

Therefore, is there any reason why you don't want more 08 hypers on the MTT schedule?

b109 time slot to b11 is pretty dead for low stakes regular imo. Only 22 10k and 11 6k, put a 5r or 8r at 13:30ET and it will be the nuts. Gonna be a really good tournament.

That whole peak time slot needs looking at. Having it jammed full of turbos makes zero sense.

Are you trying to increase abi for the sake of it or what?

Played the $4.40 PL courchevel hilo today at 08.05 WET.
Had about 115 runners BUT a ridiculous 24 players paid.
If 12 were paid there would be more $$ up top.
At the moment there is a better than 1 in 5 chance of cashing. Too high imo

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/19)

Hi all,

I've completed the changes to Bounty Builders.

This means:
  • Beginning 25 January, Bounty Builders will no longer be hybridized (award tickets) until we are able to fix the issues with filtering.
  • Deal making will be allowed. This means the registration message will be removed, the final table text will be removed, and the deal making button will be available again.
  • The web content will be out of date. I'm not sure too many of you will notice.
  • The fields will probably be a bit bigger. This will partly be due to TCOOP, so it is unlikely guarantee changes are made immediately.

Thanks,

Luke
