  • new tourny schedule....

    what happened, we were all told this would be posted on december 31st. which has come and gone. also, mark said that if he didnt make it on to freddie's show on friday, he was going to post in forum his views on a certain topic. what happened to that also? with a new league format starting, i would hate to laose out on a month because the schedule and rules came out late. i hope this all gets posted soon, or is at least responded to in this forum soon.

      thanks joe, i have just looked at the new schedule list. and i am rather disappointed, actually a little angry. why ask for our opinion on something, if you just sre not going to listen. i think the students on this forum made it pretty clear, that they wanted the friday night,7p.m. tourny to be one of the big ones, or even the biggest. why was that not done? all that was needed was to change the buy in amount, not rearrange anything. i know mark and tina are out of town right now,but the lack of communcation and not keeping promises is getting very frustrating lately............

        as a u.k. player it is difficult enough to play any tournaments with over 50 players here
        the friday 1pm is usually the biggest field i play in
        after playing the 7pm last week i enjoyed it so much i thought late finish was just about worth it-but 8pm? not a chance

          Input not taken???

          Mark and Tina:

          Am I reading the schedule right that the Friday 7:00PM tourney is now $200, no added $?

          After re-reading your original post on schedule input, and the accompanying responses, I still feel it was evident that the majority of responders wanted a higher buy-in/more $$ added tourney for this particular tourney.

          What gives? Why wasn't this accomplished in the new schedule?

              hazy i just looked at the sched. there a lot of tourneys with added money, i agree with u, makes it more realistic with no added money but unless i looked at the wrong sched. there is still added money.

                  very interesting, if there is no money added then the 7pm on friday night should have a highest buy in.

                  also, if u look at the link, there are stud multi's at half past the hour, on the proposed schedule they are not there.

                    I have not been involved in the new schedule. I agree with not having added money to so many events.

                    Regarding the show on Friday night I fell asleep waiting for it to start. Since then I have been traveling and I hope to catch up in the next couple of days.

                    I will look at the schedule but as usual I would not expect everyone to be happy with it.

                    We will soon have ring games for school bankrolls so I want to limit the amount of bankroll that is "free"

                      Since the 1/2 hour stud events are only showing up Wednesday thru Sunday, I expect they are a holdover from the old schedule.

                        We ask opinions so that we can make a balanced decision. Just because some opinions that the friday tournament should be bigger havn't been implemented does not mean we have broken promises.

                        The success of the Friday night 7pm tournament is built around the number of players entering because of Freddies Broadcast. I did not want to tamper with the buy in as there will be many players who would not have the bankroll to enter. Sure there were a few players who voiced there opinion via the forum that this event should have a higher buy in but equally i feel there may be as many players if not more who want the buy in the same.

                        Mark made it clear that he wanted all added money taken away from buy in tournaments so thats why the 5k added has been dropped.

                        Finally if FreddyBoy or Bruno feel we have affected this tournament in any way or think we should change anything then why not hold a vote on the show. Everything is not set in stone and if the overwealming majority want a higher buy in then I will make it so

                          Excellent Idea Kev

                          But it may be a better Idea to hold the vote here in the forum. The reason I suggest this is for people like myself who always listen to the show, but who do not have a Microphone. It would be tough to vote without one.

                          Just a thought :P

                          Happy New Year everyone!

                            We are going to put back the added money to the 2 Friday events.
                            We agree these are the most popular school events and with Freddie boy doing his show, this is the highlite of the week for most of the members.

                            Sorry for any inconvenience


                            Regards
