    I agree that it made it a bit more of a shove fest, all the way through to the end, than I had expected.



    Any more feedback?

    Maybe try 7 minutes.

    I've played thousands of hours of poker in my time live and online. It's much better to keep it at 8. I already knew it would be a disaster to change it to 6. 8 was still short but it's at least playable. I don't get why you changed it because one guy who really doesn't even understand poker theory or structures of a tournament and the effects of short blind levels asked you to change it. Change it back to 8.

    Its still playable. If it wasn't why would you even bother to play? Most people on here don't offer suggestions. I offered a suggestion and more people than not voted to change it. You just don't want it change because the other structure favors better players where there is less risk involved. The final table was already basically a shove or fold situation anyway unless you were one of the bigger stacks.

    Laughable structure; not surprising the lesser skilled players want a push/fold fest.

    Why not just let SBR Genie pick 5 random players from each tourney. That would really save time!

    I'm bored and don't do a whole lot outside of playing poker and watching sports. All my money is invested still basically so I rather keep it like that with higher gains than use some of it to play for real money on a site. I used to play for real money as a pretty hardcore mtt grinder but got burned out so I only play for fun now.

    7 minute blind levels seems like the sweet spot.

    We'll leave it at 7 mins until the end of this month.

    Next month we go back to one tourney per day each.

    Leave feedback here as to your preference between 7 min or 8 min and we'll make a decision before day one of the next promo.

    if it's only 1 tourny a day might as well stick with 8 mins, do u think the time thing will be fixed by april promo, not that i care but it must be fixable cuz wasn't a issue last year or 2019

    It would be nice if we could get 2 tournaments a day regularly. Maybe one at 2 ET and one at 8 ET. Im sure lots of people miss out when theres only 1 a day and they aren't available at that time.

    He means we go back to being able to play only one tournament a day but you can choose which one of the three tournaments that will run each day. 2 pm, 5 pm, or 8 pm.
