Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

what about the Big-O ?
In the structure sheet the informations are : 1100$ / 20k / 30mn / event number 48
In the schedule event number 48 is not a Big-O (it's a PLO 8/B), the Big-O id event number 31 / 1100$ / 15k / 30mn


Event 41 : 15k chips in the schedule and 20k in the structure sheet

Definitely sounds fun, looking forward to it. Going to be some crazy musical chairs from a logistical point of view, so at the same exact time 200 people are going to switch chairs?

What happens when tables break down and the two team members are now at the same table? What about when they both make the final table?

Hi Chris,

For the Goliath Milly, if you qualify for day 2, will you be in the money?

No. We are playing a set number of levels or 11% left. Whichever hits first

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Chris,

Quick question: why do in your $580+ events the blinds go from 50/100, 75/150 immediately to 200/100/200 (or 25/100/200)? Basically you go from 225 a round to 500. That's like 2.5x per round. Can you just make the first two levels 75/150, 25/75/150 or 75/150, 150/75/150 ?

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

So looking at the limit events with similar buy-ins I notice some start at 100/200 and others start at 200/400 with 10k chips. Is that right, some tournaments like the HORSE and RAZZ start you with only 25 Big Bets?

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Chris, can you list on the schedule if they are 30 min blinds or 40 blinds next to the event, don't wanna have to dig threw all the structures. Good example would be the wynn schedule, I can just clearly see the ones that are 30 min blinds, and cross off the rest that I don't have patience for.

I know you had this structure 2 or 3 years ago, it was fun, but last year - I think it was the WSOPC - it was up to the players to tag each other as long as they played the blinds; and there was no "forced" switch. I noticed on the structure sheet it says "Players may tag a teammate anytime he/she is not in an active hand." Does that mean players can also switch at any time they want to, in addition to the "forced" switch by the director?

This, perusing the events at the Nugget, Binions, and everywhere else ; the bring in if it is 50 has a completion of 100 and 200 big bet, whereas , Chris, yours has a 50/200 with 400 big bet.

I've never played a stud game which has the completion 4x the bring in, not to say that it doesn't happen but with only 10K chips the offering is a turbo stud or razz .

Certainly you can add more to the starting stack and fix the initial stages of these tourneys.

For the 1k big O in 6/15, the schedule says 15k starting stack but the structure says 20k. Which is correct?

Yes, this has to be corrected. The mixed game players will spot this and not bother with playing.

Two key changes as a result of this thread to the HORSE, Stud variants, and mixers (besides anything dubbed turbo or accelerated)

15K starting chips instead of 10K
First level will have a 200 big bet - flop games are 50SB 100BB with 100-200 limits and stud games are 25 ante 25 low card 100 complete and 100-200 levels.

The feedback is appreciated and we look forward to seeing everyone!
