Default BBP League Poll

OK all, looks like we're going to establish a league on Titan. In addition to the weekly $100 freerolls, we will be having a buyin event. In each event you earn points based on your finish. In the freeroll events you can earn 2-20pts, 20 for first. In the buyin event, points are doubled. You can also receive extra points by making consecutive final tables or winning consecutive events.

At the end of our initial league of 8 weeks, i.e. 8 freerolls and 8 buyins, there will be a final tournament for the top 20 or so point-earners. There will be added prizes and such, so you can all see that playing in the buyin events is the fastest route to the final tournament.

Our freerolls are going to be on Sunday nights, but we need to figure out a day for the buyin in order to gain more participants. Our buyin events will be $5.50 or under, hopefully making it affordable to all.

EDIT: When voting, vote for your #1 choice. I voted for Monday nights, but I'm available most days.

Sounds great. I voted for Tuesday Night, though Monday night works well too. Tough depends how late we are talking with Nights. I don't do well after 10pm est on weekday nights.

We're probably looking at something around 8pm , but I cannot say this with a definite. I wouldn't assume that it would be so late, I don't like playing into the morning either.

I forgot to mention this, but there will be 100 max. in the buyin events, so 10pm would be too late of a start IMO.

I'd like to keep it the same nights, I've kind of gotten into a groove of having those tournaments there.

I can do it Sunday nights for a $2.20 max Buy-in. How about playing the Freeroll at 6pm CST, then the Buy-in tournie at 8pm. Because for a $100 Freeroll the lowest prize at 15th place is $2.50. People can use that to Buy-in to the $2.20 tournament and still net $0.30 (LOL).

My $0.02

For me, Sunday is Online Poker Night.

I get what you're saying, but are that many members only freeroll players? I figured that enough actually had money that we wouldn't have to rely on freerolls to fuel the buyins. Also, do you see the freeroll ending in two hours if we get more members to play in them? Yeah when we only had 15 it didn't take that long, but we're expecting a larger turnout from here on out.

-I'm getting kind of low on Titan but I still think it should be $5.

I think there is a core group here that would do a $5.50 dollar buy in, but if your looking for a better turn out a smaller buy like $2.20 or $3.30 would probably be better.

Sunday nights are bad for me as is so I would not like to see both the freeroll and buy-in tournies on the same night. I'd much perfer to see the buy-in tourney Sunday afternoon or Monday or Tuesday night.

For 8 tournies x $5.50 = $44
For 8 tournies x $2.20 = $17.60

I would imagine that people may give it a couple of tries at the $5.50 level, but would quit if they don't win. Participation will drop off quick, if a core of players dominate. I've seen it before. At $2.20 per tournie, I'd be willing to play each week (win or lose). It's more about BBP bragging rights.

The only way to know, is to start a BBP poll.

Guess you've seen me play . I guess I'm trying to get this tourny stacked enough so that it's most worth it for every individual event, but the end result i.e. final tournament is a good enough prize in itself. I'm cool with a smaller buyin.

I would suggest the buy in amount to be 3.30 or 5.50 so more people play in the games, but the winners get something bigger. I would also suggest not holding the league games the same nights as the freeroll games. Again...thanks for creating this league and please make sure all information about it is presented in as much advance as possible.
