Sorry for the clickbait title but I'm going to put some private freerolls in the lobby tonight and wanted to offer the community the chance to test out our new blind structures and get some free value
We are launching two new blind structures on 2nd October, one with 15/30 starting level and one with 25/50 starting level. Both structures have antes from the start and will be used with various starting stacks.
I'm going to post two freerolls which will show in the client shortly and will start at the same time tonight, 20:00 CEST (registration will open 1 hour before). The password for both of the tournaments is mycommunity, please don't spread that beyond this thread.
Private MTT 1 - 20:00 CEST - €100 freeroll - 9 seat - 3,000 starting stack - 8 min clock - 15/30 starting level with antes
Private MTT 2 - 20:00 CEST - €100 freeroll - 6 seat - 5,000 starting stack - 8 min clock - 25/50 starting level with antes
I'd love to know your thoughts on the structures once you have played the tournaments. Were the transitions between levels smooth enough, were the stacks deep enough for a regular tournament, how was it playing with antes all the way through, etc? I may run another test on Saturday or Sunday and will update this thread if so.
Thanks in advance!
Thank you and see you at the tables everyone. GL.
I'm personally a big fan of deep & slow tournaments. I already started to feel the pressure in last night's birthday freeroll after 1½ hours even though I had a pretty good stack with the 6(?) minute levels, but even that was a huge improvement over the 3 minute turbo ones. The 8 minute levels with a bit higher starting levels will be interesting to test out. I've so far liked best the jackpot poker freerolls that have 10 minute blind levels in Unibet network.
Next month I will be giving some test to real money tournaments.
I think there's a chance that Private MTT 1 tonight might end up quite shallow with a 5,000 starting stack but interested to hear if it plays fine with 8 minute levels. In the new schedule we use this structure with a mix of 5,000 and 10,000 starting stacks and blind levels between 4 and 12 minutes but will do some tweaking before Monday if needed depending on how the tests go.
I prefer 6 seat MTT with big stack at the start. 8 min clock is just enough for the freerolls.
We're using an 8 minute clock for these private freerolls as an 8 minute clock is what we'll use in a lot of regular real money MTTs and we want the test to be as close to that as possible. Normally freerolls will have a shorter clock just because of the fee involved (€0).
if one of these formats already ends up quite shallow as a freeroll, i guess u can imagine how crazy shallow its gonna be with a decent buyin
@DavidP_Unibet Great! I will participate both tourneys. I am looking forward the new structure and the new tournament in October. Will share my experience here
Interesting with Antes from the start. But they start pretty low so they don't make that much impact.
15/30 starting blinds with 3000 chips and 25/50 blinds with 5000 chips seems quite equal. But depending on your playing style it will still matter.
I will try to play it seriously to make the best out of the test.
I'll try to play and come back with an opinion about the blind structures...
GL all and see you at the tables
