UOS X

Just curios, I am not playing it, but why the prizepool for the Multi UOS  Bubble Burster showdown was split from the beginning to 133 players? If I remember, there were only 120 events, so only 120 possible bubbles? Only 49 registred, where is going the rest of the prizepool? Puting a late reg it's not a bad ideea, but how to register people when you put 133 prizes? 

What a joke...

Few thoughts (played all but 3 low/mid/high-events), though mainly my old points still stand from UOS8: https://www.unibetcommunity.com/t5/General-Poker/Unibet-Online-Series-8/m-p/331646#M49473

Weekly 2-day events seemed bad, too deep starting stacks, too long running time (especially at low levels compared to prize pools) and too long day1 (27 levels with breaks: 7h 27 min, ending 03:27 EET). Even just by cutting 2 levels from the start of regular events would help a bit with running time, make it bit more bearable 6h 51 min. Would probably cut even more or make day1 to run 12 min blind levels instead of 15 min (though rather take longer blind levels than deeper starting stacks).

Using same 2-day structure for all events with different starting stacks and even with R/A isn't great imo. R/A should start with considerably more shallow stack, to provide action and make tournament finish ITM day1.

Satellites stopped running bit too early, should run later especially on non-KO events imo. Usually last satellites did reach their guaranteeds better than early satellites.

Sunday as starting day was a good change. Tuesday as rest day was better than Monday (2-day events could kill rest day).

3 weeks running time is too long. Especially with leaderboard prizes being less than what they used to be with 2-week long series with smaller buy-ins. Would've skipped this UOS if not for Pokerihuone separate additional leaderboard.

Personally would like to see high events removed from overall leaderboard, as they cost so much and due to higher multiplier they're critical for overall leaderboard.

There was also some slight problem with 5 events running at the same evening and often at the same time. Not sure how many players feel great playing so many tables, especially as occasionally there were formats like ante up which require much more concentration than regular tournament.

All leaderboard payouts (excluding the overall lb) were made last night by around 8pm CET. The overall leaderboard was paid in the afternoon.

All players eligable for the bubble burster freeroll were creditied a ticket on Tuesday morning. There were some BE/SE players that bubbled UOS events that would not have been credited tickets as they were ineligable so the freeroll would have never had all 133 players but we did expect more to have entered last night.

There were 55 eligible players that did not play last night and as a gesture of good will we've credited all of them with 810 BP which is the split of the 55 payouts from 50th onwards.

Hello @Farseer 

First of all, thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts regarding the latest series. Regarding the 2-day event I agree to some extent that the smaller buyins tournaments having the same structure as a €100 buyin are a bit too long. The idea is to have all structures the samr so it would not matter if you're a "highroller" playing the €100-300 events or if you are a nano player, you get the same good structure tournament. But as you say, probably the small ones are too long, I will think about it, already have but again give it a big thought. The higher 2-day events I don't agree that the lenght of the tournaments been to long, even if the hours per day have not been optimal running 27 levels day 1, we use to do 26 levels but some tournaments finished like 2 places from ITM sometimes so I added one level.

This gonna be compleatly changed for next UOS, where day 1's will not try to reach the money and just go for 18-20 levels. This way we have a more equaly spread hours between day 1 and day 2 . Regarding the leaderboard and which tournaments should be in and which should not, that's something that we look constantly discussing and trying to be as correct and fare as possible, for all players. Three weeks of a serie could be seen as long, but not many players play every day, so see it as a option to participate in good tournaments over a long time, we also discussing that we might do one or so shorter series next year, not finalised yet though.

Have nice upcomning  holidays!!
