      With this being a one day event what time do you expect this to finish at.

        What's the structure for the €50 sat?

        Comment

          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...

                                  Good stuff. We will have a seat waiting for you! This one is an early start time so note the 6pm start. 5.30pm doors open for registration.

                                    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?

                                          No. Guys at Partypoker want to keep it limited to the bigger events and official live schedule. Use up whatever you have at the club where you can. After that other opportunities through Partypoker im sure. FCC

                                              Hi Oasis,

                                              It is an estimated 50k prize pool so no guarantee on the first prize pool. We would expect it to be sold out based on the interest to date. If so it will likely be around 15k to the winner as the big events have that level of pay out structure. Because its the first time as a 1 day event its somewhat difficult to get a handle on numbers and final prize pools to give exact figures.

                                                        Will it be easy enough to get a parking space near the club on the day?

                                                          Should be. Fitzwilliam & Merrion Streets are quieter on Saturdays. Less businesses open.

                                                              Hey,
                                                              I bought in using PPL$ if I need a rebuy can I use PPL$ on the night?

                                                              Would it come through straight away on your system?

                                                              Cheers

There shouldn't be a punishment for wanting to late reg, especially when it's starting 300bbs deep and no antes for 6 levels. Slightly discourages rebuys too.

                                                                                        Well done on the event. Great turnout. More of these one day special events please!

                                                                                        My only feedback would be the early bird (worth 3k) and how its a disincentive to rebuy for a 30k starting stack or late reg beyond the end of level one (30k vs 33k).

                                                                                        But €17k for one nights work with that sort of turnout is great going wd

                                                                                          Thanks for the feedback. Turned out great in the end. Well received by everyone we engaged with.

                                                                                          The End of Month are the regular big events we do so they are the regular ones for our members. Up to 35k prize pools nearly every month these days.

                                                                                          We take your point on the early birds but it didn't seem to deter anyone from the re-entries on the night. There were much more re-entries than i would have thought and the late reg queue was up to 20 at one stage so the interest was there all round without complaints. The puropise of the early birds is to get players seated as quickly as possible so staff can plan for the other aspects to the night (cash tables, waiting lists, numbers we can accommodate, etc)

                                                                                          Roll on November Poker Festival!
