Personally I hate the mega-huge starting stack mega-huge blinds format.


because?

150x big blind starting is fine isn't it?

lots of extra levels

much much more playable at the business end as a result




Oh don't get me wrong, the structure is great, but couldn't it be the same with a 15k starting stack?

but why does it matter if the stack to blind ratio is acceptable?

could be 1.5k, 15k, 150k, 1.5m starting depending on if the blinds start at 7.5/15 or 75k/150k

would play the same

starting stack doesn't matter, blind structure does

Tom i used to think exactly the same thing as you.  The key thing you are missing (which i used to miss as well) is with a 15k stack you can't logistically have 700/1400 (70/140) levels because the chips don't work as min chip live is 25 etc.  Its thhese extra levels whicih make the event run more smoothly and have a better structure towards the business end.  As far as i am aware.

That sounds reasonable.

Thank you.
