I would have to agree that the EPT structure for this year is very very good, ok there only 60min levels compaired to 75 or 90 min levels else where. But it uses a schedule very simular...

I thought Foxwoods was a relatively bad structure. It starts off with play, but I think it has less play in the later stages than a lot of other 10k events. It is still nothing to brag...

The new EPT structure was great.

"Middling levels" (ex: 75/150, 1,200/2,400 among others) with sightly less time (60min) > Longer levels with bigger jumps.

Actually the EPT event that we played recently had amazing structure, and the final table structure is even better because they don't change anything for the television broadcast.

Re: Best $10k events of the year?

Good question. I would rank the "best" structures as follows:

Group 1:

WSOP ME (10k), 2 hour levels & many levels make this the best structure in spite of a relatively fast start.

Group...

Re: Fire Jack Effel Now!!!!

The $10k ME structure will be marginally worse in 2007, primarily because level #27 is missing (50/100k?). I am ASSUMING the FT will be two hour levels (the footnote on the structure...

By the way, they didn't just double the chips and double the levels. They removed a level late in the tournament (level 27?) that was in the structure last year.

From what I can tell by a quick glance at the ME event structure, late stage play will be sped up there as well...not good.

Re: Final tables taking 1/2 as long at 2007 WSOP

Great post by OP.

I compared the 2006 $5k NL (Cabinillas) to the 2007 $5k NL (Mackay).

The final table started at level #18 (8/16k, or 16/32k if there was double starting chips) in 2006,...

Requiring a scramble is a no brainer. I am the last person that wants to slow down the game (I want speed poker), but having a scramble is critical.

i do think players should be able to expose a single card after the hand is over. I hate the fact that you have to show both cards, or none. I think it's a silly rule.

Re: PLEASE HAVE MORE 6MAX MTTS

I agree. I would like to see more live 6max. Maybe two more at the WSOP including a $20k buy-in (or at least a $10k), and I'd love to see Bellagio replace a couple 2k's with one 3k 6handed and one...

Re: WSOP blind structure is only marginally better.

I used the term "effectively" doubled and not "exactly" doubled as there are some very small differences. For example, 150/300/25 becomes 300/600/75 vs. 300/600/50, and 800/1600/200 becomes...

My point was that if you doubled the starting chips in the prelim events, but kept the starting chips at 10k in the main event, chip substitution would be a concern. Since it appears the main event...
