  • Wondering about a Live MTT structure

    At my local casino, they hold multiple daily MTT tournaments (although one of them is usually like, 2 tables maximum). I've played in a few of them, but I wanted to ask you guys (mostly the pros) what they thought of the following structure, which is used for all of them:

    Entries: $40 (3500 chips), $50 (4000 chips), $60 (5000 chips), $100 (7000 chips), depending on the day and time.
    $5 add-on at the beginning of the tournament (adds 1000 chips).
    Rebuys available for the first 2 blind levels.
    Blinds increase every 15 minutes, or 20 minutes for the $100 tournament.
    Level progression - 25/25, 25/50, 50/100, 100/200, 150/300, 200/400, 300/600, 400/800, 500/1000, 800/1600, 1k/2k, 2k/4k, 3k/6k, 4k/8k, 5k/10k (haven't lasted long enough to see more).
    No antes at any time.
    Tables are 11-handed.
    1 payout spot per table, so about the top 9% get paid.

    Casino keeps 37% of the entry fees, not including add-ons (it would be closer to 40% including them).

    Does this sound a little... off to you guys?
