re: Poker & full tilt numbers today
Some big numbers of entrants in the first weekend on Fulltilt MTT's.
All the guarantees Fulltilt put up were smashed, ie. what was formerly the Sun $750k, was now the $200k ,but today it had prizepool of $612,200, with 3,061 entrants! (keep in mind, this one was a MET) with 1st paying out $100k (after a chop).
For those who used to play the $26 mtt's, numbers in those were pretty high too, ie. 6:00ET had 1,206 entrants, $28,944 prizepool!
Then one at 8:00ET had 1,564 entrants, top 2 finishers chopped, each with ~6.4k. (prizepool over $37k & this was not a MET).
The one at 9:00ET was a KO & a MET and had whopping 2,118 entrants, $42k prizepool! (1st > $8.6k).
The $10 SuperStack mtt > early one had 1,380 entrants!
The DailyDonker had 2,699 (was only a $1k guar. as opposed to its former $10k guar.).
Some pretty large numbers for the first weekend. Wishing I'd played a different schedule today than I did.
Numbers really tapering off after ~5pm(ET).
And one that appears to be missing from the late night tourney lobby is 'The Ferguson' (as is Chris himself). That was the first table/game/tourney/hand I ever played on Fulltilt.
