Blind Schedule - Your thoughts
« on: February 11, 2010, 01:54:08 PM »
Hello guys,

This is the new BSOP 2010 structure. We've thought it to be a little faster in the beginning but to allow for deeper play in the middle.

Please share your thoughts.

Dev: I think your players will be thrilled with it... especially your rocks and strategy players. Your average increase is around 20-25% per 45 min interval, so there's no heavy pressure there at all. Your ante at +/- 10% of the BB will motivate the short stacks...

The structure is great, IMO, and will favor the skillful player.

Is it one buy-in or do you offer a re-buy or add-on?

would love to have the time to try this structure myself, I think it is very player orientated and they will love the gentle escalation, if you go back to what Matt Savage was saying about the middle stages of a tourney the average stack being short stacked I don't see you having this problem as you should have a nice steady stream of eliminations from play rather than blinds dictating the action.

I might try this out in a private game sometime but could not use it in a regional event etc due to logistics (i.e. I would if I could but I can't!)

Well done.
