    Couldn't play on first one at 12 even though I registered. Are the rules of poker different on these turbo? Why couldn't I play?

    Not sure why you couldn't play.

    Rules not different, just the blinds go up quicker than the other ones.

    The rules are different. I lose with pairs and AK. You got to call with 82 offsuite to win a hand.

    I vote for the old format (or something similar) with all due respect because the prize pools are too small.

    More action yes which is cool, but 80 points doesn't do much for me.

    Yeah JP like I said the increased action is very cool.

    That being sad I do like the new format of the M-F tournies quite a bit. As I said before the new blind structure is nice and the prize pools are good.

    I'm leaning this way as well unless maybe you reduced the tournaments in half at what they are now and then take those points and double the prizepool for each. How much did the old format pay anyway with two tournaments a day? This one pays out 1625 for all 13 tournaments.

    Just working with the same total points as Quarantine Poker to try it out.

    If it seems to be attracting new players we can petition for a bump in the prize pool.



    Other options are to reduce the number of tournies from 26, to say 16 (8 each day instead of 13) and increase the prizes by about 30%.

    Or change the distribution of prizes. Maybe pay more than 3 places.

    We can do tweaks for next weekend if we want.

    One thing I do like seeing is the 4000 point weekend prize pool is already being spread out amongst more players. And more prize winners is already showing up as more action on the cash tables. Omaha Hi/Lo quite a bit more active this week than it had been.

    I think we should give it 4 weekends and decide then personally.



    The suggestion of one big Saturday tourney to start when the first college football game does is currently the next weekend promo idea planned.

    I didn't play today. The prizes are not worth the time invested. Better have less tourneys with more prizes.

    No offense. But the term "worth the time invested" is relative.

    I highly doubt that time is going prevent any given poster from solving Cold Fusion.

    Oh you don't like an all in every hand either? I saw this yesterday night so I thought I would play all day today. You get in and you might go one hand that isn't all in every time.

    Does the idea of a rebuy tourney with a 50 point entry/rebuy fee sound interesting?

    Maybe turbos on a Saturday and a longer format tourney Sunday.

    How about a larger guaranteed prize pool with a buyin on the weekends? Non turbo. The bigger the prize pool, the more players will show up. Maybe 2 per day with a giant one on Sundays.
