Hey all,

Just a reminder that Take 2 of the Sunday Million Anniversary is this Sunday!

The Phase Event this year is meant to be supplemental to the other Events, not a centrepiece. We'll probably fire of a few leading up to the opening Sunday though.

No significant content changes (IE last October) are planned to occur before SCOOP, but we are in the process of doing some spring cleaning. This consists of checking some tournament run times, removing poorly performing tournaments, creating the "Replays" tab, updating minimum entrants on tournaments, and some other tasks as well. I'll provide updates as changes occur.

Bubble Rush tournaments appeal to a small group of players, so we are happy for those players to have numerous chances to play a format they enjoy.

2) the $44 4max often ends latereg with 14-15 players and 11 paid, and judging on how many people that enter in the last few minutes I think this might be bit broken. Maybe it should pay fewer people.
  1. Deep hyper sats to the Bigs and Hots will have their start times moved back 10 minutes from Monday, April 23rd. A change to the Bigs isn't necessary, but leaving them as is would result in overlap with the Hots satellites, so they're changing as well. No changes are required for deep hyper sats to Omania or Major tournaments.
  2. Late registration has been reduced for this tournament effective tomorrow.

This is an example of a schedule change that isn't exciting, but has a minor, sustained positive impact on players. We're planning to take a look at the structure and run time of these tournaments in the near future.

It was not a well-participated tournament. There's no plans to replace it at the moment.

Nice catch – this was changed due to the removal of the $27 Turbo at 01:20 ET.

Ridiculous...

This MTT just a week ago. Look at the guarantees. What do you mean by saying
"not a well-participated tournament"? You mean there are a small amount of players or what? I don't get it. There are a lot of MTTs that has much less players than this one.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

We all know its all about rake. Unless a $2 mtt gets over 500 players that is not enough for greedy stars. Thats why the $27 deep stack off peak mtt which averages around 130 players at best and is not growing at all gets to stay.

Don't you know how much server expenses are nowadays. Surely $90 rake (or whatever) is not enough to keep some 2$ tournament running.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Hey Luke, I have a great news for you! I found more MTTs to remove!
08:00 CET Big $82 (126 players only!!)
09:10 CET $22 Deep Stacks (236 players)
10:25 CET $44 PKO, Deep Stacks (153 players)
11:00 CET $33 8-max PKO (232 players)
You can remove them because they are "not a well-participated tournaments"

P.S.: Thank you very much for killing MTT! I appreciate your effort!

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to drop a quick note that this Sunday only, the Sunday Storm's start time will be moved back two hours to 15:00 ET / 21:00 CET. The satellite schedule and structure have been adjusted to reflect this temporary change. Re-entry has been added for this weekend as well.

Good luck!

I'll take it as the answer is so obvious. The popularity of a tourney depends on 3 factors: format, time-slot and buyin. Thus a micro-stakes tourney with 100 players is not well participated while a high-stakes tourney with 100 players is fine. That's because micro-stakes have a lot more participators in general and few entrants is an indication the format isn't well liked. The same thing can't be said about a tourney with a 10-times higher buy-in (which all your examples are) with the same number of entrants because there the burden isn't the format but the buy-in.

If you find micro-stakes examples you have an argument, now you don't.

It's $600 guaranteed, how many more people than 400 do they want?

I guess they don't have a fixed number. But if you look at the number of players in the dozen daily $2 tournaments 400 isn't much and this was indeed a poor performing tournament.

Dude come on. He was running at 8:50 CET. How much people do you want to see there? 5000? I played this MTT every time and he always had like + $200-$300 over guarantee. By this logic, Luke can now remove a lot of MTTs from morning. There are a lot of Omaha btw ($2.20-$3.30) with just 150-200 players. For example: $2.20 NLO8 6-max, 183 players, $300 guarantee ($366 prize pool). Is this a well-performing MTT? It's just stupid how did they remove that MTT that's all. There is exactly the same MTT and still exists ($3.30 NLHE with 415 players). Where is the logic?

You do realize that you are comparing tournaments, one of which with the most popular poker format, and the other one with one of the least popular one, right?

I am no expert, but I can assume that having one of the less popular format hitting a GTD is more well performing than a $2 NLHE tournament meeting the GTD + a little bit more.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

The question is: How is the reg to rec ratio there. In a NHLE 2$ mtt you probably find a lot more microregs than in the other variants. If Stars thinks that there are too many regs playing and the money of the recs is mostly gone because they dont have a chance then its better to cancel the whole thing for them. The PLO or NLO8 events give recs a lot more opportunity to get through than a nlhe mtt.

^ LOL what

There are a ton more Regs (as a percentage) playing off-peak $27 deep stacks then there are playing $2 mtts. Percentage wise rec to reg ratio would not even be close between the two.

Just remove the whole poker thing and let's just bet on roulette spins, the reg to rec ratio will be so much better.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

You realize that there is a difference between recs playing in a 2$ mtt and recs playing a 27$? The former are probably trying out poker. A player entering a 27$ mtt is much more likely already enjoying the game and having the spending power to play midstakes. If you kill the guys already in the 2$ mtts they will quit poker and never come back.

Re: PokerStars MTT Thread

hi, since there is no sng thread for pokerstars I figured I would post this here, maybe you can do something with this, Luke.

I would like to propose a high stake 6max hyper knock out sng, currently the highest limit is $100 and it's a super popular format as u can see. Adding a 200/500/1k or something could work out nice.

thanks

interesting thread - Pokerstars cares about the recs. And protects them.
Where's the guy with the long nose ?
