I agree with Mike & isuxatpokerbad ......... I'm horrible (Dead Money) and a part-time player (Full time career) but show up for the 300/500's at all the local spots (Parx, Borg WSOPC ect....) and this without a doubt was the best structure outside of a MAIN event anywhere.

Again, I loved the structure, but............... Wouldn't mind seeing a few minutes coming off the day 2 levs IF we had to do it.


But, if I had a few more days off to take, I would want to play this kind of structure at ever tourney event.

Parx & Matt, I hope you make this kind of series happen twice a year if not MORE...........you are my

glgl to all playing the main & other tournies.

What are you talking about Pierre??? You are definitely NOT dead money!!! I like your game but you have also gotten unlucky at times - I cracked your hand at DPark and you have had some others. Hope to see you at the main for at least 1 bullet for you. 50,000 in chips is hard to pass up.

They also have 2 satellites tomorrow where I think they have 4 guaranteed seats for each one.

11:00 or 12:00, what the heck is the difference??? If you don't like it then I would recommend you play 1 day turbos so you won't have to play until the sun rises.

Also you keep bringing up Borgata - read their blog - some of their tournaments don't finish until 7 or 8 AM the next day.
I don't think the average player in an o8 tourney is too keen on playing 16 hrs straight.

I will take you more seriously if you private message me and give me your real name so that I can see you are actually a customer that played in the event.

Cliff notes:
We intended to pay out around 10% of the field. We had no idea we would ever get such a huge turnout. In the past we were thrilled to get 500-600 players for any event. We had a payout sheet submitted to the state that had a max of 81 spots cashing. So that means even if for some reason we had 3000 entrants we would only being paying out 81 spots. When we saw the turnout on day 1a it was way too late to submit another payout sheet to the state. Things do no work that fast. If you look at the payout sheet you can see the last column says 800+ entrants.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...=sharing#gid=0

Obviously it is an easy fix for future events and we will take care of it.
I stopped back to see if there was and true remorse about PARX $330 buy in possibly being the only poker tournament in the history of the world that did not pay out the standard 10%.

Instead people want to know my real name and then suggest since I am new I have no basis for a complaint. I am a very quiet poker player and person. The only reason I ever had to post on 2 + 2 came when there was extreme incompetence by a big casino in running a major tournament. And you think I trust to give you my name? 3+ Million in earnings brings lots of power and apparently no accountability so I do not want any trouble. Just tell everyone that finished 82-130 to come back an get what they earned.

Part of the integrity of tournaments lies in the basic understanding that 10% or so will be paid. If your mistake was worse possibly only 3% or 2% might have been paid and then for sure more people would be looking for answers. Also it was not hard to find a precedent as Borgata had a $300 buy in 2 weeks prior and got over 1200 so its hard to argue anything but very bad judgement.

If you would have admitted the mistake, maybe offered a free entry to a regular Sat tournament for those you should have but were not able to pay or something as a sign of truly being sorry then it would have been easier to understand. There is always going to be human error.

Sorry and forgive me because I am a good guy does not cut it. Mike Caro writes extensively on how being a god guy improves the bottom line. My usual buy in tournament is $200. So instead of having the next 3 covered I am dipping into my regular job. This is something I can accept if I didn't earn the $600 or so I would have gotten anywhere else in the world. I did my part and should never have to worry about if a very well off casino set things up properly.

Parx screwed up. Own it. Fix it now, not next time.

If this refund thing happens im pretty sure I got ~120th, I'd like to donate my earnings as a tip to parx staff for making my first experience at parx memorable.

Also borgata's wpo this past September got ~3700 people and they paid 200, I'm not good at math but I think that's less that 10%

so you'd like them to retroactively change the rules of their tournament because you didn't cash but think you should have? it's not like the payouts aren't clearly listed on the screens around the room from the very start of the tournament. if you're sitting here trying to tell us that your decision to play in the tournament to begin with hinges on whether it pays 6% of the field or 10% of the field then i think perhaps you need to re-evaluate your priorities, OR investigate the exact payout structure prior to showing up. matt apologized and frankly i think that's more than he or anyone at parx "owes" you considering your only complaint is that you didn't achieve the result you wanted.

Dear Sir
Maybe in writing I will get some good poker karma or maybe someone is not serious. I hope I get some feedback from people who dont have time to respond to you.

In reading thru this situation yet again, it cannot be real. Parx hasnt screwed up, and when you say they are posssibly the only poker tournament in history of world to not pay 10 % , that statement is 100 % false and incredulous, if you know how to find this forum, you know where to find results, but completely wrong. This is common, every day, everywhere. This is by no means "extreme incompetence", this is small minor blemish on an incredible poker series, rookie of year in poker world.

I think people wanted to know who you were as the tournament was incredible value, you were a new poster here, and you were making completely error filled statements, with personal attacks that were dumb. Since the "only reason" you have come to these forums is this, you will go away, this isnt even the place to get you whatever you seek. Good luck. It is hard for me to believe that someone could have finished that high in that field to not understand this situation. And you did not "do your part", on the boards at tourney, as everyove oohed and ahhed over how many entries it scrolled on the screen all day where they were cutting the payoff, 100 % again, impossible to miss. Also on the paperwork and the PDF that was submitted to state it was everywhere, readily available and offered.

Since you are 100 % not wrong or serious, but to use Borgata tourney two weeks ago has no precedent here then.....these applications get put in way far ahead than that and take a stupid long time to get approved and everything how they want it. But since you used Borgata, also one I am partial to, two series ago the first time they had million dollars for 500 entry, they had 3714 entries, and paid 200. This was dealt with at the start of day two, and the explanation really was, that since so many days and people fired extra entrys, wanted to make the min cash worthwhile. But they happened to get lucky to be able to do that, they had someone on premise overnight, they changed it, was made aware, just like Parx, 100 % everyone knew what we were playing for and cutoff. in PA, that is never ever going to happen. Your paying twelve people who take three weeks to rubber stamp something that is correct, they not leaving the ranch for a Parx overnight shift.

And worst of all is how you refer to Matt, and I am not star stuck by far or any means....you make insinuations and allude to stuff and you cannot even explain what you are accusing him of. Seek help...really rude.Own It. And the fact that one guy is standing at a podium, you are taking anynomous shots at someone in pubic forum, it does not help your case, and might be considered, gutless, but this cant be real or serious. Your case reminds me of pieces of crap on sports teams that are terrible, they are always the "unknown source" gutless

I am sorry for what is up with you, and that I wasted valuable time , maybe poker karma test, but I hope moderators take all the posts of yours away even if it wastes my time. I wont respond again, and maybe poker players will reply to this and tell me Im dead wrong, sorry, maybe its me...

You are not wrong - the guy is fake - no way he actually played the event since he won't pm Matt and imo he is a troll just starting trouble.

Glad someone brought up event 1 from Sept WPT Borg as an example. I played that evnt and cashed and played this event 1 and cashed and when Parx staff said only paying 81, I right away understood why. Not sure why it's so hard to believe. Like I said, late Friday night, I asked Matt G why only 81 and he said due to p/w sent to the state. Because I work in the Legal/Law world, I understood and didn't question it. BECAUSE IT"S THE TRUTH." Trust me, I wasn't happy only 81 got paid sitting 78th out of 231 coming back to day 2, but it happened. Matt, Allen & Parx designed this series for grinders like ME, a part-time player who plays on most saturday's at Parx cause I work Mon-Fri, who wants a better structured tourney that feels like a MAIN EVENT since I don't have tons of time or the bankroll to play the MAIN or go to Vegas for the WSOP Main.

I know Mr. Glantz, but he's not inviting me over to his house for a BBQ this weekend. Now, PSUMIKE is a diff story. See you at 3pm, bring the chips & Little Man Sica (I know he'll bring the women). With that said, Parx & Matt aren't going to do something clownish and tarnish there great images and hurt the people they need.

Matt and other PRO's want all of us part-timers to have fun and enjoy our experiences. Because we are the ones driving the tourney prize pools up since some unknown Accountant won this big tourney a few years ago.

Like I said earlier, maybe shed a few minutes off a few levs. I was HAPPY with the events.



I'm done with this subject and that other guy jrriii888

Well said BOB............... and well said Mike.

Mike, your my boy Blue ;-)

Second of all, LOL at jriiiikkkk the super-troll.

Third of all, just some input, not meant as criticism: I would be be much more likely to have played in this event if a day 1 was on a Saturday. I love these types of events but with my life situation it would be much better to take my shot on Saturday/Sunday and then take time off on a Monday when I know I am making a run as opposed to taking a day off during the week just to try and grind to the money. I don't know if most people feel differently or what but that is just how it is for me, in case that is a consideration. Again, don't mean it is a criticism because I might be different than most recreational players.

Definitely agree. Would want to take a day off work if I knew I was in or close to making the $$ rather than taking off for a day 1

You are not alone. Many players are requesting we do a Sat/Sun day 1 & day 2 for next time for exactly the same reasons. Definitely one of my goals for Big Stax II.
Thx much for the feedback. Enables me to make the next series better for everyone.

Matt dont fall into the trap of 18 hour days like borgata has. What id suggest is a noon start every flight with a hard stop time of 2am. Add a caption that says tournaments will play out in three days but the final table may extend to a fourth day if needed.

I can assure you we are not falling into any trap. This entire first series is a work in progress. I will be evaluating every aspect from top to bottom and making all the necessary improvements going forward. Fortunately our staff at Parx is tops on the east coast so having that in place all the specifics of improving our tournament is relatively easy. Expect better.


Times for Big Stax 300: 1361 entries
Days 1s went 11am-12:45am
Day 2 went noon - 3:20am
Day 3 went 1pm - 7:50am

Certainly will improve this drastically for Big Stax 2


Times for Big Stax 500: 381 entries
Day 1s went 11am-12:30am
Day 2 went noon - 2:20am
Day 3 went 1pm - 12:20am

Much better but we can still improve slightly.


I expect Big Stax 1500 starting today to be much more in line with the 500.
Thx for the feedback guys.

Great tournament at Parx but just have to vent

Day 1b of the $1600 main- last level of the night, guy raises to 10,000 at 2000-4000 blinds, caller behind me and I call with 44 in late position. Small blind reraises to 40,000 and I thought what the heck, I have 330,000 in chips, I call. Flop was Q 10 4 and the guy shoves all in for 250,000. Of course I instantly call and he looks distraught with his AK up against my set of 4's. But the river comes a miracle Jack and cripples me. I get knocked out shortly after when I ran into KK. Would have had around 550,000 in chips coming back into day 2 and be top 3 in chips. Instead, it's on to day 1c.

Is poker a cruel game or what??? Was hoping my venting would make me feel better but it still stings the morning after. Oh well, good luck to the day 1c players including me, lol.
