    Interesting! But a few things which are confusing. You say the Top 100 advance to the Championship on May 30? But then you say:

    3. In the event that there are ties for the 25th spot, tiebreaker will be # of Cashes. If still tied, the earlier SBR Forum Join Date.

    If Top 100 qualify, why would there be the need for a tiebreaker for 25th??

    But generally I would say it's a good format, spread out reasonably evenly. My only suggestion would probably be not to make it Top 100 (instead like Top 50). Given the number of people that play per day for making Top 100, pretty much everyone who plays consistently will probably make it then no? Right now fewer than 100 people play per day (perhaps average of 25-30 per tourney in three tourneys!). Granted it should go up with a promotion, but still seems too easy in that regard for everyone who plays consistently to make it.

    Heck, maybe shouldn't say that - after all I've missed these things before when the # of qualifiers was lower so I might be arguing against my own self-interest! But again, just being objective does seem like Top 100 might make it a bit too easy.

    Because we are only paying out the top 25 places.

    Sam - sorry am still totally confused. You say Top 100 qualify for Championship. I understand only 25 will get paid in it.

    What I don't understand is why there would be a need to potentially tiebreak for 25th. If you were paying based on qualification standings that would make sense, but if Top 100 play Championship why would you need to tiebreak for 25th??

    41k in bitcoin probably equivalent to about $1500. Would have been cool to see someone make it to the millionaire maker seat. Oh well

    Not really possible unless we play hand for hand which we don't. Even then could only happen if two people had exact same stack and went out on same hand - super unlikely that late in tourney. So yeah doubt he meant that.

    He basically said they were paying out 1500 for the WSOP seat which is the prize pool for the final. My only complaint would be 100 in the finals should be 50 max, 100 is way too many

    ARUNSH, the tiebreaker ONLY applies to whoever finishes in 25th place in the finals tournament on May 30th! Of course we need some sort of tiebreaker unless they just choose to split that last prize

    Exactly this. Qualifying is meaningless. So for the next four months all we have to look forward to is one single tournament. If they were doing this format they should award top 10 qualifiers 5x chips, 10-25 4x chips, 25-50 3x, 51-100 1x or something like that.

    Yup this has been suggested many times, but they've said software can't do that. I like it in theory though.

    But yes that's same point I was making above about 100 qualifying - means everyone who tries will make it. Top 50 would at least be somewhat restricted.

    Carseller loves the new format because now he can finally qualify.



    I really wish that we had used the Millionaire Maker entry as the prize for first though

    As I said, two people almost never tie in some single event. If this was based on qualification standings again that would make total sense. But for final event, ties do not occur per say.

    Then if it "two people almost never tie" then what is that has you so concerned about it.

    I hope the blinds for the final start high. With 100 people in it could take 8 hrs to finish the tournament starting with $10 blinds.

    a hard pass meaning you're not going to play any dailies? Here how about this...just act like there's not a 3 month leaderboard, soft pass it and still play in a daily tournament..if and when you crack top 100 though, you basically have to skip the final tournament. I fixed the problem!
