Believe me Im tired of all the no limit holdem also, but casinos need entries.
Run the plo/plo8 at 5pm and still able to run your noon NL event.

You should have the capacity to run a NL and plo/plo8 event both at 5pm.

There was one year that the Big O ring event was held on a saturday, it drew the largest non holdem ring event ever. 377 total runners.

You could staggered the start time to 6pm or 7pm.

Re: Choctaw Durant Ok WPT May 2-20

I have a question about the rake. I looked at the structure sheet for 10AM/12AM start times. The first line in the comment section reads:

"Fees include any and all staffing/dealer fees, add-ons and rake. 3% of the total prize pool withheld for tournament staffing."

The next line describing the $130 buy-in reads:

"$130 buy-in ($100 prize pool + $20 admin + $10 staffing)"

I'm pretty sure this means:

$130 buy-in ($100 prize pool + $20 admin + $10 staffing + $3 additional staffing)

Or:

$130 ($97 prize pool + $33 rake)

I believe the players who care are interested in simply the amount that goes into the prize pool and the amount that doesn't. Please tell me where my reasoning is wrong and why we do not see the amount of each entry that goes to the rake until we look at the board once entries close and divide the prize pool by the number of entries.

I was told the WPT takes care of the transportation and housing but I donít know if it comes from the prize pool or not.

We will be taking $5 out of HOUSE drop and giving it back to players for all events again this year. Free Roll.
