we are up to 200 runners today, added to 121 yesterday so 321 and registration open for another 80 minutes

tomorrow should be full with 500 runners plus, but might have to be an absolutely bumper day to hit the guarantee

we will see


anybody coming to play?

weird structure, agonisingly slow for 9 levels then too quick in the last 3 or 4 levels

was similar in the 2k. i dont mind having bigger starting stacks if thats what people want but we really dont need to be 500bb deep ever. imo if 50k stacks then we should be starting @ 100/200 (with 25 antes would make it even better but fine without if it has to be that way for the main). it's a waste of everyone's time in those first few levels, and particularly for re-entry events we should be encouraging a bit more action early. would also encourage people to register on time, although again this might only be an issue in side events.

Absolutely this.

DTD seemed to have nailed structures in recent years, so why it's like this for this event seems bizarre.

Gave me couple extra hours in bed tho waiting for the antes to kick in though!

What is the optimal time to turn up then Alex?  After first break?  Level 4 so 2.20pm?  Is that the 100/200 (25) level?  25/50 50/100 and 75/150 first 3 levels?
