Update on MTT Lag Investigation

For those of you who had been reporting or experiencing lag during the Sunday MTT major tournaments, we have an update on the investigation from our head of programming, posted by one of our Poker Room staff here:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...26&postcount=1

Here is the a link to the thread for commenting/discussion:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/61...-28-a-1580244/

We know there continue to be some reports about SNG/SAG lag, and that is still being investigated. We hope with additional monitoring we can resolve that as well.

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/28)

Big 109 on Stars got 1065 players today, Parties equivalent got 935 players.
Stars Weekender ($530) got 250 players, Party got around 130+ with basically nobody knowing about it.

Pretty good going from Party. I have spoken to a few people and they're really going to push big in the next 12 months, I think if they try different approaches to stars and don't care much about guarantees (they have been getting punished in guarantees all year so far but keep increasing guarantees) then maybe stars can look at this as fact and realise how important guarantees are. I have it on good authority that Party are happy to listen to the players and try out what they think and go with progressive ideas. Lots of these ideas have been declined by Stars because they have more "data" etc so it will be interesting to see how it all works out, this year could be very telling with 888 pushing very hard too.

If players leave PokerStars for Party it may not be a bad thing and healthy competition is really good.

Way more value, much better structure, so many stars games are worth ditching for them, everybody should add them and keep the schedule growing.

Party are also about 1000x less bureaucratic with changes and although they may not always be successful they are listening too and acting on player feedback without all the lame corporate nonsense. They are trying hard and everybody should give them some love!

What game types were you playing, how many tables and at what time today? Can you describe the nature of the lag, how it affected your play?

Which client version are you running? Please go to Help > About PokerStars and look for the 5-digit Build number in the upper right.

If you experience lag again, please send your log files to support. Go to Help > Log Files, explain in the text box that you are having lag, provide as much detail about the nature of the lag and your situation as you can, then click Send Log Files.

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/28)

Pokerstars.fr 10€ Half Price Sunday Zoom[super ko]

I register->start playing->find a shorty->call his shove with marginal hand for KO->win----->NO bounty credited

So I look into the lobby and see buy in 9+1€

Get serious ffs and fix your issues. I wouldn't have played a turbo zoom donkament if it wasn't for the bounties. Do I get a refund? Probably not...

Please shorten blind levels in 13:35 ET 11+R PLO8. 15 minutes blind levels are just far too long and yesterday tournament lasted over 5 hours with 82 entrants and we actually made a deal (could have easily last hour or two more). 10 minute blinds should suffice, although they could be even shorter in game like PLO8 rebuy.

Party introduces new sunday 109 100k on the schedule. Immediately crushes guarantee.

This comes from demand that stars doesn't meet. Tuesdays and thursdays also need to be built up, so much surplus demand.

I would agree if blinds were different at start.
10/20
15/30
25/50
50/100
are current blinds.

So an extra 2 levels at this rate would mean blinds are at 100/200 at the end of a 1 hour rebuy period from a starting stack of $1500.

Some of us don't want to play turbo's all the time.

Whilst not effecting any other of their MTTs (even with increased guarantees)

Re: 2016 PokerStars MTT Discussion Thread (Last Update: 2016/01/28)

Hey Luke, what do you think of this suggestion/idea?

Run it twice/Lifeline in mtts but can only be used once in a tourney and can be used whenever a players wishes. This will be very interesting as players will be in a dilemma whether to use that "Lifeline" in early stage, near bubble or save it for later stage. Also whether to use that lifeline when dealt strong hands like AA, KK, QQ or when you get dealt medium hands/weaker hands.

Lets say I want to go all-in or call all-in, but before doing that I click on "Use Lifeline" and if I get called, community cards will be dealt twice irrespective of whether my opponent has decided to use his lifeline or not. Ofcourse if nobody calls your all-in after using lifeline, you can still use it again.

It would also be interesting during bubble stage whether to use lifeline or not, as you'll be hoping if your opponent has used it so as to not get your lifeline go wasted.

Sunday Million has to have the nut worst structure on the entire MTT schedule.

Who the hell wants to play 2 hours of 10/9 nit poker in 2016? Seriously fix it already the structure right now is pure torture.
