    10am EST return for weekday tournaments...

    Oh, for weekends?

    Saturday: NL Omaha tournament
    Sunday: High Roller (100+10 or 200+20) return

    Would be nice to see a different format get a tournament and Omaha is all ready available on the weekends. The high rollers were nice as it was nice to win a tournament and get a decent amount of non rollover points.

    Or HORSE instead of NL Omaha on Satuday.. Just something other than hold 'em, gets repetitive

    The poker software only has Texas Hold Em NL, Split, and Pot Limit available for tournaments.

    The suggestions of Omaha and HORSE cannot be accommodated as of this time but are nevertheless appreciated.

    Bring back the Sunday Rebuy! That was a great format and got a good # of people. I'm not hugely in favor of the high roller - attendance was often low. Not really sure why, but I think a format which will encourage more to play (like the rebuy) is better. That said, the high roller is still better than no tourney at all (as we currently have on weekends). So please do bring something around for the weekends!

    Or can we get multiple tourneys on the weekend, with no limit to joining. Why not? Doesn't hurt anything, and SBR will get a cut. Bound to be used more than SNGs

    what is the software capable of? I think you'll get better feedback once we know. Can it do a knockout?

    If PLO is not an option, the way it was before is fine ( agreeing with Spider).

    How about a deep stack Saturday night tourney?

    Something like 6000 starting stacks and 20 min blinds.

    That will be different and reward the skillful a bit more too.

    Yes, but a large buyin or some type of poker points added. If first only gets 100 points then that'd take a little too long for such a low prize.

    True. :\ SBR would probably need to put up more points for that than its worth or with a biggish entry fee we wouldn't get many.


    I'd like to have one like that occasionally though.

    Maybe SBR could put up a decent prize for a 'Championship' deep stack on the first Saturday of each month for the 20 odd tourney winners from the previous month...

    Then the top 3 from each of those monthly tournies could also win seats into an annual sbr poker championship with a 1000+ buy in for anyone else who wants to play.

    Anything similar to Shari's New Year's deeper stack tourneys would be great.
    If not, the high roller and Sunday rebuy are still good, too.
    Thanks, SBR.

    I'd like to see rebuy tourneys..either unlimited until the 1st break or maybe 2-3 and then an add on

    one of them being an omaha game, either PLO or PLO/8 would be cool

    Need some sort of "high roller" in the afternoon.

    Then you can have a gimmick tournament or two the other day. Maybe a rebuy or a knockout.

    Would not be hard to promote or pull off. Really wouldn't cost anything extra. Give a badge or the weekends.

    Could come up with some other ideas but don't know the software limitations

    This, with bigger buyins and therefore bigger prize pools.

    One of my favorite tourney's to play was Star's 3$ rebuy because you had just pure chaos for the first hour and could build a stack with a pretty minimal investment. I think a 10pt buy in/rebuy/add on that was open to everyone would have a similar feel to it.

    High Roller Saturday and Sunday rebuys. Really miss not having those tourneys. I agree with what other players are saying, lets increase the re-buys to the 1st break or set it to stay active until the 5th or 6th blind level.

    I really like Opti's idea of a monthly "Champions" league tourney. Free entry for all 1st place regular tourney winners and an option to buy in if you've placed in the top 5. SBR could also add points to these to sweeten the prize pool along with the buy ins.

    How about some Omaha High/Low tournaments as well?

    Thanks for considering our input here as long time SBR Pro's. Let hope it doesn't fall on deaf ears.

    I'm pretty much in the boat for just discontinuing poker on the site. After three bad beats in a row this week, I would rather get kicked in the balls than playing here.

    If I do play, I apologize in advance if I suck out on you. The worse the hand, the quicker I will call.

    I got busted after pushing with QQ preflop, lost to a set of 9's on the flop. Couple that with the 5 clubs on board to chop my set of tens when I was short, the fact the software made me pay the blinds 4 hands in a row (when I had ~900 chips and blinds were 100/200), and a few other sucks outs and I get the frustration.

    That suckout of mine last night was, by far, the exception and not the rule for me.

    You know how bovada has the cards burst into flames after a flush? I think it would be cool to have the dog from Duck Hunt pop up and laugh at you every time you have a bad beat

    Sam can you add that to the software?
