When to play:

  • Tuesdays at 19:00 CET

I like the idea guys, but why should a high roller chose this tourney with €200 buyin and 5k expected pool instead of €100 buyin and 20K pp?The gap is too high i think.

@psrquack  Probably because the highroller player don't to play in a tournament where it's +200 players, that could be one reason

I appreciate your answer, but still don't get it. If you have a high roller player who don't play your highest tournament then there isn't any tourney to play, because other buyins are significant lower, that means you have a player who don't rake or that player doesn't fit the high roller definition, because €50 tourney and lower players aren't high rollers.

I can imagine this tourney's idea come from gg networks Blade series (high buyin, fast and limited players), but if one event in a week doesn't seems a competitor.

@psrquack, with your logic we should never try to widen the offering and we'd never have exceeded € 25 in buyin Smile
We're already offering a € 100 buyin 20k GTD tournament, and the next logical step buyin wise would be € 150 or € 200. We can't start out with a 20k GTD in a brand new € 200 buyin tournament - we don't have an unlimited overlay budget Smile

Furthermore I don't get the either or logic you're trying to apply here.

Again, we have to slowly improve and build on the offering; it's simply the only way with a limited budget, and it's working Smile

@Stubbe-Unibet: I understand you are feeling like being offended, but don't worry, shadows aren't dangerious.

To get a clear picture I have to ask a question: do you know/follow the results of the Blade Series?

Secondly: poker players are trying to find the best offers. I hope you won't debate this. If we accept poker players act so, then my question is valid. Why should a player choose a tournament with higher buyin and lower prizepool? According to Leo the lower field could be the answer. The next step is do you have players who want to play the Supernova, but due to the massive field they don't do this, but they have the required bankroll for the double so expensive tourney? My point of view you don't have them. Maybe they could redirect gamblers from betting/casino, but they won't stay as long as necessary to rev up the tourney. The next question in my mind was How could they seduce players for this tourney? The answer was they want to make a similar tourney like Blade (high buyin, reduced number of players, faster ending). That's all, and your opinion about the real target group of this tourney is more than welcome.

you might be right @psrquack  , we probably don't have the players for a tournament like this, that will only the future show us.
If we have the players that would appriciate a tournament like this, I will be delighted that we're able to create such tournament for them, if there isn't any interest we'll probably remove the tournament, let's give it some time and we will see. I hope you're wrong in your assumptions   Rockon

@psrquack, you're such a troll Rofl

I'm not offended at all - I would love to spend my time better though, as I've got other stuff to do Smile

Your question isn't automatically "valid" because you set up some irrelevant hypothesis. You're making a whole lot of weird assumptions here; wrong assumptions which invalidate your question and "point" completely.

Again, it's not an either or, which for whatever reason you continue to assume. 

Target group. There're several segments which could be playing this tournament. We've got a fair share of players solely playing the highest buyin tournaments - players playing on a lot of different sites - and the Bigbang should be a welcome addition to at least part of this segment. We've got lower buyin players taking shots at the qualifier. Some casino and betting highrollers might find this tournament interesting. We might have new players joining; players currently playing only €100+ MTT's - especially if there'll be an overlay, which is not unlikely the first few times.


Why should a player choose a tournament with higher buyin and lower prizepool? 

Do you think field size is the main factor for someone playing € 200 MTT's, when determining whether or not to play an MTT? This is not a freeroll; where the value is determined by the # of entries Smile
