Most events at Choctaw are able to register online at startickets.com
Yeh I used startickets before but they always had it on their website but either they don't now or I'm missing it. Can you or someone else local check with the poker room. I'd call but it is hard getting correct info in the phone. Just checked startickets and this event wasn't listed.
Different players like different things. I am not the tournament director that always does thing the "Standard Way". For the good or the bad I am not afraid to try different things. I was the first to do many different things in poker because I wasn't afraid of change. sSome of my ideas were HORRIBLE!
So, this being said , I wanted to have a low buy-in tournament so anyone could play. Yet, at the same time I wanted a payout that was worth playing 18-30 hours for. So, this one tournament has a different than the normal payout. 5% of the field will be paid instead of the normal 10% of the field. I looked at it because of the very low buy-in and re-entries, A player may actually spend $400+. On the typical payout they might only receive a $250 payout. Does not make sense to me. Also first place will be lucrative. In my opinion the tournaments that allow re-entries should not have the same pay-outs % as tournaments without re-entries. I cannot see how players would like placing in the money and making less than their buy-ins. Therefore, I am trying this on "ONE" tournament to get feedback. Maybe its not the right concept, but I am trying it. I think overall it will be accepted.
The tournament will draw alot of players and re-entries and will be huge with a huge first place for a $100 tournament.
Hope this clears up the 5% payout, and hope you enjoy!
