    I was just wondering when the next CM tourney is going to be?

    Sponsorships and added money are great, so are bounties but they dont generate very big pools, to spice up the pool a bit what level would you buyin to the tourney? Would you want a rebuy period so as to guarentee a certain amount of time playing? What else would you suggest to make the tourney more exciting? How cool would it be if 32Red threw in a WSOP package for the winner :D

    I'd be happy with any buyin from $5 to $50

    Id be up for a buy in, no more than $50 and preferably around the $20 mark. I cant stand rebuy tourneys though im afraid.

    You (or a moderator) should add a poll, BubbleG, detailing the maximum amounts people would do for a buy-in.

    Might give you a better sample, especially from those people who may not take the time to type out a reply but would click on the poll. :thumbsup:

    I had made a post regarding a CM poker league (with buyins) not too long ago, then brought it to Ed during the last freeroll, and I also threw in maybe providing a WSOP package to the winner each year...he seemed very receptive, and thought it was a good idea. Not sure if he's going to followup with it, but it sounds like he will :)

    I`m in no matter the buyin.

    I would prefer rebuys, because it generates the largest prize pools, and it`s fun donking around the first hour :thumbsup:

    A WSOP package would be great. Might even let the other playes share a percentage of the winner, so we have someone to cheer for :)

    No, it's not. Some people don't like throwing $ away on rebuys just to play rags. :what:

    You don`t have to play rags. That`s entirely up to you :)

    Rebuys allow for much more play after the first hour, when everyone has a good stack in relation to the blinds.

    It would be great if 32Red/Piggs Peak could set up a deepstack tourney for us with 5k starting chips and 20-30 mins levels, but I have never seen them do that before.

    Besides, it must be great to have a few donkeys like me to boost the prizepool ;)

    I agree on rebuys. Most useless game they invented. It allows players to play some unbelievable hands (garbage hands) cause they know they won't be knocked out if they lose. I have seen some horrendous play since this was initiated at poker rooms online and I have been playing many years online.

    This I disagree with since we would be playing all night just to move to another level. 6-9 Minute rounds is long enough in my book.

    I would love to play in another tourney and would be willing to buyin $20 or $30. Rebuy tourneys are not my fav though, prefer good old freezeout. I play a bit of tourney poker on 32Red and love their site so hopefully with a buyin I will be invited to tourney no3. Watch out you guys if you do let me in as I won the first one :eek: :eek:

    In my book this format makes for the same crap shoot all the way through the tourney, rebuys atleast its only the first hour. I'm quite happy with that crazy hour :D

    I think that's why most people prefer freezouts. If you want to make donkey plays with your own chips because you want to play a bluff, then fine...let's not play bingo just because you can rebuy and get more chips...That's why the freerolls have always went so well, nobody was playing bingo.

    Just my 2c

    Who's playing bingo? Personally I find it not uncommon having 10X or over the starting chips at the first break of a rebuy. I am no poker pro but can quite happily take advantage of this hour while having a bit of fun in the process. Yeah sometimes you lose a bit but I always feel I can get it back. The first tier of money in a rebuy is usually 2 - 3x times that of an equally priced freezeout and you just cant beat cracking AA with 23os. The 6 - 9 minute bllind level makes for all the same donk all in plays except the fact you usually have no choice as the blind will do it for you.

    As this would be a tourney primarily for FUN I dont see the rush. IMHO A cheap rebuy (10$r my vote) or a 20/30$ FO would provide the most fun and entertainment. 2k in starting chips a standard 15 minute blind level and lets not forget the 10 minute breaks :lolup:

    :p

    Is this a social gathering of money poker players or is it a just a social gathering? I am in it for the fun AND money and I hate to just dawdle thru the levels...15 minutes at a starting $10 blind is too long and we could be socializing for fun all night instead of playing real poker for money...if you want to dawdle and socialize...go to-----> BINGO!

    Looks like 32red and Casinomeister are going to get things squared away for next weekend (25-26), so hang tight :D
