Re: Planet Hollywood GOLIATH 2018 Draft

Always appreciate you seeking out player feedbacks Chris. Couple of points.

- The Main goes directly against WSOP 888. Slightly different price points, but even a one day change can allow players who donít bag 888 to still fire this event. Why put your main directly against a WSOP ďfeaturedĒ event

- Similarly the opening Goliath Milly goes directly against the Venetian MSPT 3.5M. Again a simple one day back up would allow players who didnít bag Mspt to still fire the last starting flights of the Goliath Milly. Just seems to be unnecessarily competing when a simple 1 day move would allow players to play both

- As always, the dealer issues. Certain mistakes happen, but all dealers should at least be comfortable dealing, making change and know all the standard rules that frequently will come up. Maybe a little more hands on training before the series starts will benefit them and make them more comfortable (itís not that they canít make change correctly, itís just that they are panicking and uncomfortable and thatís causing them to freeze up)

Look forward to the final draft, as I will be starting to put together my summer schedule soon.

Moving the main back a day would result in anyone who makes day 3 being unable to play the WSOP main event.

1. It will help solidify feedback and double check all the proposed changes in the thread to increase entries.
2. With the Venetian and Golden Nugget releasing schedules over the past couple days (3/1), some of the "free dates" for mixed game tournaments (and possibly "marquee" NLHE tournaments) may have changed since those initial comments. (I realize the Wynn and Binion's have not released schedules yet.)
3. Another interim version avoids having multiple "final versions" floating around and problems like in past years.

Thanks for listening to everyone's feedback. I look forward to seeing the next version of the schedule and hopefully being a repeat tournament customer.
Next schedule that comes out will be final

If table space is a concern, you could have a larger buyin amount for that day.
Thanks in advance for your consideration to this request.
I like it! Would have to be a one day event and am open to suggestions!

I'm not sure. This is the first time there have been so many post-WSOP main event PLO MTTs, so it's hard to predict which players will be around.

I saw there was a $5k last year on 7/6 that had 43 runners, but that was before the WSOP Main Event.

I'd suggest a $500-$1000 to grab the mid-stakes MTT crowd, and to provide a little variety compared to the scheduled $300 ones listed on 7/5 and 7/9.
You may also be able to grab some entries from the Little One for One Drop (who could play Day 1B). You might be able to grab players from the Venetian's $600 NLHE noon 1 day MTT too.

A slightly later start (ie: not 11am) may also be preferred (assuming it can finish in a day) since the WSOP $1500 and $3000 are 3:00PM starts.

No Heads Up tournaments which I thought were going to be cool
2 years ago before I had to unregister both of them

Heads up tournament would be awesome. I loved it when they did this in the last at PH. If it's not too late Chris, somewhere between June6-10 in the $300-$500 range. But I'd play regardless of the buy in. Thanks!

Re: Planet Hollywood GOLIATH 2018 Draft

I'd like to thank everyone for all of their feedback on this thread. I was able to make many changes that I hope are viewed as positive based on the feedback from this thread. The final schedule can be found here, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ruw...ew?usp=sharing

Happy to field inquiries. Structure sheets to follow in the near future. New thread as well https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/6...final-1706782/

See everyone this summer!
-Chris

Re: Planet Hollywood GOLIATH 2018 Draft

Thoughts on the big blind ante??? Prefer to keep convo on this thread so the other doesn't get clogged up. Not implementing across the board. If we do use leaning towards BB ante until the redraw period (27 - 18 - 10 players remaining) and then switching back to traditional ante.
