  • When did league change to 10% payout structure?

    I thought payout was 15% or so. Now, (Feb 1), it appears to be a 10%. 1796 entered with 180 payout.

          Apparently 10% payout is more in line with the real world. Except for Pokerstars other real money tournaments which pay out 15%, those aren't representative of the real world I guess.

            Thanks for the link Joe. Just means I will have to re-eval play.

              I have to agree with that. The 15% is pretty much a joke, and the 1 hour late register is also something that just burns me. At least in PSO, they limited that to 10 min. That part, I am glad for.

              But a change from 15% (or 13%?) to 10% will certainly need to have adjustments made in play, early and mid play especially.

                Muhaaaazzz!!!!! Things are changing, and this should be an interesting month. So what I can take from it, all them "OLD" strategys of making ITM, just pushed the play level up a notch, to conforming to "normal" MTT strategy. Beware of the shove monkeys !!!! umbup:

                    I also wonder. I hope Cyclist wonders and is gathering data for another sticky worthy thread.

                      i don't think that changed much - if at all - for my first game or two, being at 1500 points or lower you only have to get into the top 40% of the runners to achieve positive points.
                      i got down to about 30% and made +9 points so that looks the same to me.
