Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Monday 6-Max Sats got to be changed. The 33$ one gets cancelled almost every single week because of required participation from start of the tourney, so you might change it into something else or make it run. Increase the guarantee on the Mega Sat as well.
You also might consider changing the fact that every satellite hast to be played out the same format as the target tournament. 6-max sats have a history with very low paricipation numbers and would do way better in 8 or 9-max format.

can I get a final statement on your plans for the possible 215 Bounty Builder Mega Sat?
This shouldnt be as big of a change to have to be thought about for months. (this is btw the biggest criticism I have for u and the work of stars itself...it just takes u ages for the smallest of changes to be finally made)

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

PLs leave the $11 $10k payday as is. first prize is 13k every week and its nice to start a tourny parctically itm on sunday with just about a 1000 players between you and a 5fig score in a llow buyin.

Would def like a monthly phase tourny added to the schedule and $55 sounds like the right price point to me. Thing would be huge every month.

So will the schedules from 24/12 and 31/12 be moved to Monday after?

+1 to this, think monthly is too long, just create a weekly $55 and a $109 and watch them grow, **** even do a $215 they all will smash gtd's and you know it too, crazy idea here even run sats to these. #morerakeisbetter

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

In the new deal system are you able to call a host if you want a different deal, or are icm and even chop the only possible options? If you don't have an option to agree to different numbers than ICM that seems like a much worse system.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

And you said the two available options are even chop and ICM? It seems chip chop should be an option too. Also some option to leave something to play for if the players choose.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

@Luke

had a 'golden sng' today, a $3.5r 180. the prizepool didnt triple, and we only recieved $3.5 at the start of the tournament. i understand that 3 tiers of SNG existed, bronze-gold, but everywhere in the lobby of this sng, it said nothing about bronze, and on the table it said 'golden SNG table', so everyone assumed the prizepool would triple after add ons. ill try to upload images after my session, but it looks like either a) this was designed terrible and in the most unclear way possible or b) the rebuy format broke the system somehow and it didnt triple the prizepool

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

kudos for giving us so much crap promos, that virtually nobody even knew about golden sng since they were fed up with even logging on to your site. given the promo it was the best day of the year, and I played about hours instead of 14 yesterday...

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Cuz the chance for gold is 0.000000000000000000000001% i see couple aroun 0.5% was bronze and for all day i see 2 silvers i mean i check all the sngs couple times,so u must pay a lot lot more rake to even get to 1 sng and it will be probably bronze for 1 of ur buy ins and 3 % of ur rake

Ending zoom at 9 actually makes the problem worse IMO. If it stays zoom until the FT, it's effectively random who is HU for any given hand, and no one will be HU for an extended stretch, whereas the way it is now, it's likely one or two tables are HU for an extended period of time. HU is very different from 3-handed, especially in the late stages, especially with the button as big blind, especially with the bounties. The HU table plays 50% more hands, plus there's quite an opportunity for collusion (just fold back and forth to ladder). I strongly suggest keeping it zoom all the way until a 4 handed FT or stop zoom dealing at 6 handed with a 5 handed FT (or stay zoom until 5 handed FT but go H4H).

I think its safe to say by now that half price milly seens like the better option going foward into the future? The guarantee has been blown a number of times now.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Of course that isn't 'safe to say'. It's just a few times a year what makes it special. Many lowstakes players wouldn't play it every week, but will once in a while.

It's the same as saying the Red Spade open should be every week because it has a huge prize-pool every time.
