Obv. starting at 100/100/100 is no bueno, but interesting to see 200/300 and 300/500 added levels.

And a big fan of the single big blind..question, why are most poker rooms having the big blind post the ante instead of the button?

Wouldn't a single button ante make more sense than a single big blind ante?

Most places have determined that they'd rather have the big blind post the ante because there is always a big blind every hand, so the pot is always 2 or 2.5 BBs. If the button is to post the ante, the minimum pot could be as small as 1 BB (if both blinds busted the previous hand).

I've played button ante a few times, and thought it was really good.

Have no evidence that it's quicker, but I'm lazy, and posting once a round works for me

Or you could have every player at the table post an equal sized ante.

I appreciate poker room managers / tournament directors posting in this thread, and we shouldn't discourage them from doing so..

Agreed. But even more specifically to Chris--he has always been the most responsive and helpful.

Take your time and get it right.

you're right of course, i'm so impatient to have all the structures sheets to work on my own program and PH was the first to release a complete schedule and will be the last to release structure sheets that's why i'm a little bit nervous....

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Agree 100% with Stu Ungar.

It's good that so many of the TDs interact here, and giving them grief is hardly incentive for them to continue the practice.

Chris, one question about event #50.

In the tag team event, can you confirm if both members start the tournament with their own separate stack, or does only one member play at a time during the entire tournament?

In another tag team tournament at a different casino, players started with their own stack, and then the tag team occurs when one member is eliminated and the team is down to one stack.

Please confirm which format it is.

Thank you..

Our tag team event is two separate stacks and team members will switch at random times throughout the event. The staff will announce when to switch and the switch will occur right at that moment, even if both players are currently in a hand. If one player is eliminated then they wait on the rail until switch is announced.
