I know this is the wrong thread for this but anyway.Falchoon said:I think it's worth going and I was sceptical at first.
Varies by venue but 50-200
Not at all, I'd say 95% of the people last night would have played a minimum 10 events. Rather than an all in fest it probably goes the other way, a lot of callers with not so many raisers. If I had one criticism it was the starting stacks aren't big enough 1000 25/50 50/100 being the initial blinds, but for July the stacks are 1500. It gives you a little more room to push and prod.
Most players are regulars, so there's a fair incentive to finish in the points, so like a real tournament you can paractice a bit of bubble poker. I quite enjoy it.
At least comparable to the $60 tables at crown IMHO.
What I'm trying to get out of it is reading people, obviously I'm not a bad card player, probably not a bad poker player, but that's not what makes the great players great.
Played last night and came 7th from 105 starters.
1. 60% have no idea what they're doing. These are the people who will call and keep calling with any picture card.
2. Because of the above, it is a waste of time bluffing until you are down to the final 30 or so.
3. I would hazard a guess and say that only 5% would understand the importance of position.
4. The blinds go up too quickly. At the final table, every person had an M of less than 8, with 5 of the 9 having an M of less than 3. It just becomes an all-in fest which is unfortunate.
5. If you must be in a pot, raise the bejesus out of it otherwise you'll find yourself up against 3 or 4 others with any sort of random hands.
Otherwise its not that bad an experience. Couldn't compare it to Crowns $60 tables though but maybe it was just my particular venue.
