    All The 9PM Poker Tourneys Are Full!!!

    Is there any chance of changing future registration to be staggered...much like how the poker championship was? Meaning that you only open registration the day of or the day before, instead of posting all three at once. You know that there will be 20+ people each night that don't even show up and are blinded out.

    Another possibility is if a player registers and then doesn't play a hand, then they are unregistered from other tourneys they've signed up for that week or restricted from entering the ones M-Th for the rest of the week. Just some suggestions, because I'm guessing that a lot of people just signed up for all 3 at once and won't remember as the week drags on.

    I figured if I tried to sign up this morning I would be alright, but I'm already unable to get in any for the rest of the week (except Fri/Sat of course).

    Yeah I made a post about this in the Saloon. Not sure why it is capped at 90 if there is high demand.

    Yeaaa...good idea.

    The no-show rates were incredibly low last month. I think they averaged 3 to 4 on the 68 man tourneys. But still it may be better to do as you suggest and put up just a day in advance.

    I agree, even if they don't want to add another tourney. It seems like even if they moved it to 180 people it would still be reasonable.

    Really? It seemed like I had that many at my table sometimes, but maybe they joined in later on and i didn't notice

    With the raise in the blinds it shouldn't even take long blinds are 10-20 and people see QJ and push all in. I logged in at 7 am eastern this morning and everything was full I signed up for times in the afternoon incase I can make it but I doubt I can due to work.

    I can't play in any of the 9 pm tourneys. I think they should only be opened on the day the tourney is played so people will not reserve seats for the rest of the week whether they plan to play or not.

    John you need to open more seats for the tourneys or add more tourneys. This is ridiculous!!!

    If you go from 5*68 to 2*90 players per day the tourneys will get full very fast. Would be great if you increased tourneys to 250 players or something.

    Another tourney needs to be added or open more seats for the 2 offered.

    As you said 340 players per day participated last month and now all of a sudden they limit it to 180 players per day. This doesn't look good if you plan to attract more players or even retain the ones you gained last month.

    I'd recommend making the tournaments bigger rather than adding new ones. That way you don't have to make each tournament have a lower purse or pay fewer spots. I can money if you're paying 10 places but its a lot harder when there are 5.

    Wow, all but one all week is full! I didn't even know any would be available for registration until today.
    How irritating. I think SBR should double the # of tournaments this week.....say do 2 at 1:00 and 2 at 9:00, and only allow signup on the same day.

    max player increase will make these last three hours. Should be 90-120 min reg open before start, pros only and maybe have 1 a day for non pros with 10% prize pool.

    Remember when Poker was billed as "for Pro's only"

    now most of us can't even get in 1 tourney this week

    There are hundreds of SBR Pros who can't play in these tourneys. This is very bad publicity if you want to encourage people to turn Pro. All tourneys filled up before they even start?
