  • 7 Card Stud Payouts

    Being accustomed to the full table = 2 places paid structure, I was completely blown away when after finishing a very lucky 2nd in a 9 player freeroll the entire $500 was awarded to the first place player.

    Will the payout structure for the stud games remain as is, or will a structure reflective of the smaller table size be implemented?

    In 9 player tables, only the first spot gets paid. You need at least 10 people to pay the top 2.[/url]

      I am aware of the payout schedules. I am guilty of thinking in terms of table size relative to payout instead of absolute numbers. This point has came up previously, and I mistakenly thought it had been changed.

      When stud goes live (becomes woth PSO pct) why would anyone participate if 1) playing 8 handed sats could drag their sat league ranking DOWN and 2) only the top spot is paid?
