Secondhand - As its the first time with the 1 day format finish time is difficult to estimate as there are a number of factors at play. I would think it would be 5 or 6am if capacity is reached. Poker are doing some projections on that at the moment.

Cmon - Details of 50 sat is as follows. 1 * 50 rebuy and 1 * 50 top up available. 150 max spend. 7k start + 8k rebuy + 8k add-on. 15/20 minute blinds. 6 Main Event Tickets Guaranteed!

Is the registration fee on the charter correct? If it is then it seems very excessive for a one day game

Oasis - Yes details correct. Price includes complimentary meal at the break for all players and complimentary drinks throughout the night. High quality dealers on all tables naturally. 10% reg fee would be fairly standard industry wide. I dont know of any other venue that provides free food and drink for players but i am open to being corrected. FCC

Thats fair enough it just seems like a big jump considering your end of month game is 20 euro with a dinner thrown inn at the break also.

Oasis,

Cant argue that the EOM is fantastic value and that's part of the reason why it sells out every month.

Also after reflecting on it we have changed the reg fee so the breakdown is 340-35 which is a better arrangement. We have also tweaked the structure a bit based on feedback to aim for a reasonable finish time as requested. This was based on feedback received here and on social media channels.

Hi Darragh - Yes there is a reg fee on the Re-Entry. It is re-entry and not re-buy.

Great to see the fitz taking on board the comments and making positive changes regarding the reg fee. Can you detail how you have tweaked the structure exactly.

Hi Secondhand,

We aim to please!

Clock has changed to 25 minutes to allow for an earlier finish time. Re-entry and late reg now set at Level 8 instead of 6. This brings it to 9.35 pm to allow for later starts and the option of re-entries.

It's Daragh, with one R.

I just asked because on the flier above it says Rebuy, in gold.

It looks like a fun event.

Hi Daragh with one R!

That's updated for you now. Things like that would keep you awake at night!

Your more than welcome to come along and play it on the night. Should be a fun one as you say. First time as a 1 day event so interesting to see hows its plays out. Feedback so far to the concept has been very positive so that's a good start...

As mentioned here really glad its this is a one day event.

6pm start is OK but 7 or 8pm would sit even better with me coupled with a very late finish of 6/7am (to stretch out the structure), but as it is fair play.

Also really pro the online day 1's that were undertaken for the last 450 buy that was held at the club, great going and just makes the event more accessible imo

Plus the PPL$ buy ins are all really positive additions so wd overall

Hi Irishman,

Yes the main reason for the 6pm start is to ensure that it doesn't to on until 7 or 8am and thus running out of time. It will likely be a 6am finish with a large field so that will likely be the case.

The Live Dollars should help members that play on Partypoker some extra ways to use them. On that point there will only be three more official events where Partypoker Live Dollars cab be used at the club. The May/June End of Months and the June Poker Masters. All members that want to use up their dollars at the club should do some by the end of June. There may be another EOM or two after that but as yet unconfirmed.

Fair point on the 6pm start makes sense.

Pity that the live dollars wont be used after June, no possibility of keeping it running for all Fitz events?
