    So .... To follow up ....

    The $5K freeroll had 94 players, paying 13 players ... (more than normal, possibly the most ever)
    It took 2 hours and 27 minutes to get to the final table, and this included the hand for hand process nearing the money....
    I was fortunate enough to bust 13th about 2 hours in for about $80

    I played a similar $5K tournament on Sunday , paying 10 players.
    This tourny started with 5000 chips and 15 minute levels ...
    Yes, it lasted well over 5 hours (there was no hand for hand, which encouraged an immense amount of stalling at the bubble, and the heads up battle was epic) otherwise it would have probably lasted about 4.5 hours

    I finished 2nd (obviously for a lot more than $80)

    Why ? .... Well because it was poker, with 15 minute levels
    It wasn't one dimensional bingo after 1 hour of play

    I would still encourage RTR to push for 15 minute levels for this tournament
    Ill be honest ... The main reason being I have about an 80% better chance of cashing in what would be a truer exhibition of poker
    Otherwise.... I tend to see this promo as a crapshoot, and with all due respect, a waste of time ....

    I won't go on and on every week until it changes....
    But I'll even lay side bets that I cash in a 15 minute level tournament if it runs

    I too would like to see the levels last a few minutes longer
    We don't need 2 hour levels like a major live event, but it is much more beneficial to the skill players to have a bit more room to maneuver before merely resorting to luck

    I enjoy participating in RTR promos either way, but if a change to the tournament structure is possible, I'd like to see it ...

    A few things

    Im stating facts, not whining .... I want to make more money (how about you ? )
    When's the last time you cashed in the 5K freeroll anyways ?
    I can't recall seeing your name ITM ...
    Obviously I'm playing other tournaments at the same time as these freerolls, otherwise I'd be wasting my time ...
    A real poker tournament lasts 5 hours.... Heck the Sunday majors last 12 hours (but you wouldnt know that, cause you've got to be in bed by 11pm (and you call yourself a poker player lol ?)

    I wouldn't recommend an adjustment to the levels if this wasn't a private tournament.
    Obviously party/WPT would make a change if we asked them to ....


    Move it to Saturday
    Make it 5000 starting chips
    Make it 12 or better yet 15 minute levels
    Start the tourny a couple hours earlier ....

    They'll change it .... We should be (and are) the ones that control how the tourny is run

    Why not take advantage of that ...... ??????

    fine all other players on that freeroll are donkeys and if next one is 15 min you would be in the money because hey what is for you to get in top 10% of players and you are so smart that you even remember names of winners in last 2 months

    Hi Assallin

    There are no $5000 tourneys this month.
    Instead there will be $18,000 worth of tourneys and leader board.
    This will start 11th March and we will post details soon.
    Best wishes
