200 posts of opinions, subtle blind changes, chip stack tinkering, level-ectomies and when one visionary chirps up with the solution, everyone criticises him for what they now realise was staring them in the face the whole time.

Me? I'm no hero. I'm just a humble guy with a dream.

Line from Kick Ass?

Wp. I'd love to see how the antes from the start would go. Would hate to be a dealer at a 4 handed table though!

Good point about antesin level1 given the propensity for tournaments to start with only two or three players seated at each table.

I tried to search online for a script but only lasted 5 mins before deciding it really didn't matter.

Great weekend, really enjoyed the tournament.

I would echo most comments on here - bring forward the start to noon.

Reduce the break time if possible.

Perhaps play one more level on day one.

Why no shuffling machine of FT?  More hands per hour would probably have shaved some time off of the finish...

They don't have one on the tv table but great idea

Maybe use 2 dealers to have a second deck ready? Would also speed things up if they could help counting out stacks for all ins etc.

Possibly get the TD to shuffle a second deck? I assume the TD has to focus on the one comp so there really isn't much left to do once it gets down to the final.

Speeding it up would also make the viewing experience much better.

what about using some of the cash tables with shuffle machines that aren't in use for the final 2/3/4 tables etc?

Hi all, had a great w/end @DTD well played Tighty great updates as usual, really glad to see the £300 d/s back, a well run tourney with massive value and worth the trip down from Glasgow.
All the Glasgow players agree to travel over 600 miles to play this type of game ,as we dont have the luxury of a great club like DTD that puts on massive guarentees up here.

PLEASE do not tamper with the structure as this is the main reason people travel from all over Britain to play this game.

I think £300 buy/in is perfect if we are looking at this being every month.

If its not broke dont try to fix it !!!!

GL to DTD in the future.

Hi.

Really enjoyed the weekend, great tournament, congrats to DTD and well done on the updates here too.  Well worth the trip from Colchester and looking forward to playing there more regularly.

IMO the structure was great, perhaps an earlier start on both days would help stop a silly o'clock finish. 3 am is late enough.  Shuffle machines and an extra pair of hands could also help quicken things up late on.
