Hello,
is there any chance to add the following levels (or some of them) and maybe remove the 25-50 if needed? 400/800 is especially important imo.

250-500
400-800
2500-5000
5000-10000

Ty

400-800 is in. The above 400-1000 is a typo.

It's a catch 22.
Last year all these levels were in, as the event was a 3 day tournament. In the end we changed the event to a two day event last year as over 150 players Norwegian's couldn't play if it was a 3 day event as they had flights on the Sunday.

The result was we needed to play an extra 2 levels on the Friday and play the whole way through Saturday night until 8:30am Sunday morning which was to much.

I've no problem replacing the 25-50 level with on of the above. I'd suggest the 5000-10000 level

Hi JP,

I know it's hard to keep everyone happy, but I don't fancy taking a 1/2 day of work to play a tourney and I hate missing the first few levels in a game.

Any chance off pushing the start back to 6pm and only play 11 levels on day 1 and cut the dinner break down to 45mins.

I don't mind the 1pm start on day 2 to make up for it.

This is taking all kinds of everything, I know JP will be accommodating but this ain't gonna happen.

Hi Ollie,

A later start is not possible.

Last year we started at 6pm and as mentioned the game didn't finish until 8:30am on the Sunday morning.

As mentioned above I'm trying to accommodate as many players as possible and have the best structure as possible without the 2 day been an 18hr day.

I've had a look at this and was speaking to a few players about the structure.

I'm going to make the following changes which I think is a happy medium.

The following level is out
150-300

So we will go straight from 100-200 to 150-300 (25 Ante)

The following levels are in
500-1000 (100 Ante)
5000-1000 (1000 Ante)

I'm sure JP will confirm when he sees this but I imagine it is up till end of level 6 and break, which is standard for JP games.
