Amount of buy-in not going to the prize pool. The lower the better:

$500 buy in = $425 to prize pool + $50 buy-in fee + $25 to staff = $75 / $500 = 15%

As I think about it, that would be good info on the structure sheet also especially for the local dailies where they have a history to reference.
plog, thank you for providing this. Find it very useful in evaluating tourneys that align with my play,... slow and sloppy!

Don't see rooms providing this anytime soon as it would voluntarily expose the weaknesses of their structures. Have noticed a recent trend towards providing larger starting stacks, but changing the blind structure to essentially nullify the "perceived" advantage of having the bigger stack. Also, rooms are leaving the entry, vig and starting stacks untouched, but dramatically changing the blind structure to cut the S-factor dramatically. Seen make these changes cutting their S-factors by over 1/3!

Aria and Orleans are now up on my site. And I finished my comparison page which will give you a basis of comparison to decide what a "good" tournament is this year in Vegas:

It appears that there is an error on the PLOG tournament schedule, regarding MGM event #40, which has flight B scheduled for Wed 6/28 at 10:00am. According to MGM schedule, flight 40B is Tues 6/27 at 6pm, while day 2 of that event resumes wed 6/28 at 10am.

Hi Plog!

Looks like the $1100 Ultimate Stack tourney for Venetian (for example the one on June 26) have an error. They show up as 23 S-points, which I though was impossibly low, it looks to me like it should be 66 instead?

Thx so much for all you do!

Thanks for the corrections.

MGM #40B - fixed

Venetian Ultimate Stack - fixed 7 ultimate stack tournaments. New S-Points is 69
