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

ya i think sko is a perfect replacement for that tourney... the only ones are 320 (one day a week), 22 and 10.50... and none are turbo and i think skos would play better as a turbo anywyas... the participation would increase a lot in that slot'


if that doesnt happen, making the 55t 6m later in the day a sko would work really well too

don`t really understand pokerstars position towards anything other than full ring in tournament poker. we need more 4/6/8 max, games are dying and people love the action ( hence why the pskos work )

90man On Demand, maybe with a cap to not cannibalize the next SNG?


Bring back 1$R Big Ante Turbo with a decent structure. 2k starting stack, 4k addon maybe. 2k GTD for the start. Keep in mind, the 3x-Turbo 2 hours earlier pulls in 40k easily daily.

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

@S500 I think thats a great idea, tourney takes forever as is and i skip it often (like many others) for just this reason

Very much agree something should be done with that 55t reentry, dont think I've played that or the 54tko in quite a long time

Edit: Also still think there needs to be something done with the timeslot post B162. I'm not really sure what (havent thought about it in a while either) but I've literally not played past the B162 yet this yr and I've played more games than anyone this yr on stars at $15+ stakes and am looking for a reason to continue loading, but haven't found one yet apparently

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

Gonna give you a run for that title jdawg starting Saturday and I agree after b162 the only games I load are 27psko turbo 6m, 109turbo, 82 4max and 82 4max turbo psko.

Can't think of many games that are interesting in that slot at all. While I agree that the 82builder is pretty sweet it starts a little too late for me, I m just not sure what can be done to keep me loading. Maybe add a 6maxhyper or two.

Not sure how profitable a PSKO sng can be when the field is capped so low and its turbo. The only reason the PSKO rake is beatable normally is because of the huge soft fields they attract.

Luke, you are doing a really good job! I haven't made any comments about the schedule yet, but I read all the new comments and updates every day, and I really like the start of this year! Thanks!

I have one suggestion. Could you add a PKO MTT like "The Hitmen" on stars.fr, where more than 80% goes to the knockout prizepool. $11 or $22 buyin? Its fun to add one of them to the schedule

Increase the starting stack- change to a progressive clock imo

big 162 is fine in its place the problem is there is nothing to play after it, after you took out some some stuff and didnt replace it with anything.. add somethings imo

or maybe it's because the lobby is cluttered with bull****

https://i.gyazo.com/a6fc38b4b673e1e2...721ce6cd62.png

pretty hard for a rec to find 180-mans. Maybe give 180s their own color? Something needs to be done, because right now they only run on sundays.

Regarding the 11+r 7.5k gtd @14:00cet, please increase it's guarantee after you implement the good structure from the 21:00cet 11+r. Make it 15k gtd and it will hit it every day. Or make it 10k to start with, if you like to take things slow.

As I already said on a previous page this is very crucial to fix the schedule after big162 imo.
If you start regging a lot later than usual say 21:00 CET I usually end up with 3-5 tables on stars around the 23:00 CET mark (if not sunday obv).
I stopped regging most tourneys after that timefrome because I am not supporting the rippoff rake from stars in the turbos.

Checking out the schedule from 21CET-1am i find around 20 MTT above 30$ that at some point i considered playing. Around 17 of them are turbo?!?!?!?!?!

Comparing your stars mtt schedule to other sites it strikes me as insane how much of your schedule is turbo, i looked up my turbo ratio for last year on stars and it was 60%. I usually reg from 18/19 CET - 1 am
There is litterally nothing worth regging for the mid-highstakes players after big 162, the bounty builder 82 is prlly good but its at least 1-1,5 hours too late for european grinders, the amount of lowstakes turbos/hypers is ridiculous in that time frame as mentioned above and backed up by numbers.

You should at least offer one good red in the 23:00 CET timeslot or 23:15.
Change the bounty builder 82 to an earlier timeslot -> 22:15 or 23:15 i dont see why there need to be two microstakes tourneys @ 22:15+23:15 (BB5$ and BB2$) could at least be considered an option, i really like the idea of another progressive time level tournament (say 5min-8 min- 10 min) in one of the timeslots close after big162 just so we have an incentive to keep regging.

Another possibility would be to extend latereg in some tourneys. Party offers a structure were u can latereg the regspeed HS for at least 3 hours and still be able to jump in with 20BB, i know you have some tourneys with 3 hours latereg but seems very rare across the schedule.

At this point I mostly do not keep regging after big162 (only 2-3 tourneys in comparence to the 15 i used to play) just because a) i dont feel like supporting your terrible management with more rake and b) other sites offer me good games

yes, please!

I really like the idea of adding StarsCoin tourneys. 1000, 2500, 5000 buyins would be fantastic and I think recreational players would really enjoy them. Run them on Saturdays please

Players could just convert the coins into cash and register the Big55, or whatever, but StarsCoins tourneys would feel more like freerolls with less nerves for people playing games bigger than their ABI

Ssickone what would u suggests they add if u don't wanna do turbos and u don't wanna do regspeeds either? Kinda tough to add anything sensible in that time frame as 85% of players wrap up their sessions around that time and/or start a totally fresh one

- Extend late reg 320 wednes from 2h15 to 3h? You can reg bigs till 125/250, why not this one?

- What also was a nice promotion; was the double vision 6max versions. SWU/SM/SS ect all had a 6max pairing.

- And agreed, 44t, 55t, 33t, 54ko can have a touchup. I don't care what. Slap PKO on it if that's what it takes to get some fish in it.

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

Certainly as a lower stakes player the idea of a regular Sunday structure like the minis that you ran over Christmas is very appealing.

I also disagree that running them on a weekly basis would dilute the prize pools. Think there are more than enough people interested in playing 11-22 dollar buyins to make the 10% of the Sunday major prize pools.

This is something that has to happen!!!
