Looks like a game is set for 8 EST tonight? That’s an hour earlier than normal

I spoke too soon - sorry to get anyone's hopes up.

But I'll play a game at 8 EST if we get some players.

I've created a PLO8 Hi Lo game for 10pm ET.  10k starting chips.  And a novel concept of 9 players at each table.  @Nipsey @Don't Noonan  @shuke  @Fat Drunk and Stupid

I'm hearing PLO8s are a donk fest. I caught a lot of desperation in the NL game last night.  I'd go for 8-game or Horse?

Hard to be a donk fest when the best hands are like only 56-44 at best against another.   Didn't see any issues last night.    No one knows any of the other games after HORSE.  We tried HORSE and only 2-4 would play.  Had 7 last night for first PLO8.

Is that a little early since we have a 9 PM EST hold em scheduled? Seems like they might overlap and that makes it harder to get players.

It's Sunday night.   Really need to move game 1 up 30 or 60 minutes so we can actually have a decent game 2.   Most players will be out of game 1.

But I won’t be out yet...

I’m good with anything really.

I took first (that's 2 for 2!). Got really lucky catching an 8 on the river after a pf all-in vs 99 with 88.

Nice battle at the end there. Did you have a straight on the last hand?

Yeah. Nice job. We both had the best hand lose a couple times with all ins. I was ready for it to end. Literally had a monkey (my 4yo) on my back for last 10 mins, trying to get me to play.

I have you not paying - if I missed it let me know. I'll subtract $20 from your payout if you didn't pay.

NM: Saw your post above.

Well, I had a whole thing typed out with how much everyone got paid out for both games, blah blah blah. But I deleted it by accident.

If there was a mistake last night, let me know. I think I got it all right.

Thank you for the effort you’re putting into this. Very much appreciated.

@UniAlias   Hey, can you move the NL tourney up permanently 30 minutes to 8:30pm ET?      We've had good turn outs for the PLO8 at 10pm ET, and I've set that up to run at that time each night.   Don't want them to overlap.  Thanks

Done.  The 9:00PM ET tournament will now run at 8:30PM ET each night.  I kept the blind intervals at 5 minutes, but increased the starting chips from 3k to 5k.  Let me know if anyone has any objections to this or any further suggestions.  I cancelled the 2nd scheduled recurring NLH tournament since we have an Omaha game, but we can always create one on the fly if there are a bunch of folks wanting a 2nd NLH game.

I think the 5k will be better... thanks!

When we have a good turnout for the early tournament, it goes really close to 1.5 hours as it is. I think almost doubling the chips will make the games overlap, which is tough.

My vote would be to keep things the same in the early game. But, I'm willing to try it to see how it goes.

Maybe slow down the blinds

I considered this as well, but they're currently set to 5 minutes, and the next interval would be 10 minutes.  I think that would have a larger time impact than the 3k->5k starting chip stack.  

I guess we'll see how tonight goes.  We can continue to tweak things as the group sees fit.  It just seems like when we have a decent turn-out it quickly devolves into an all-in fest.

I would rather play for say 50 bucks and have longer blind levels and more starting chips.    But whatever.

There is some support for a pricier game. I know @Getzlaf15, @The Scorpion, and I would all play for $50. Maybe we carve out a game once a week with higher limits?

I think we should designate one day where both tourneys are $40 entry fees.  JMO.   We did the PLO8 with 10,000 starting chips last night to try it.  We had 13 entries. When we got to the final table, I asked all about the 10k chip start and everyone really liked it. That tournament last two hours.  You could make a mistake/get bad beat and not feel like you were immediately in all-in mode.

I'd be on board for that.
