Length of Blind Levels
I seriously want everyone's opinion on this. Please.
WHY HAVE ALL MAJOR USA POKER SITES
SWITCHED THEIR BLIND STRUCTURE IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS FROM 15 MINUTE LEVELS TO 12 MINUTE LEVELS FOR LARGE-FIELD TOURNAMENTS??? (Merge, Bovada
, BlackChipPoker, etc...)
What happened to 15 minute blinds??? What's the rush??? There are seriously NO regular tournaments that have 15 minute blinds on these sites anymore unless the tournament is $200 or more.
I could not be more serious about this. Let's just use our brains here...
Think for just a second about what I'm about to say next:
IF 15 MINUTES IS TOO LONG FOR YOU, ISN'T THAT WHY THEY INVENTED TURBOS???
Yeah. That's right. They invented turbo tournaments, a special tournament style just for people who didn't want to wait for 15 minute blind levels.
SO WHERE ARE THE TOURNAMENTS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT BLINDS OF 15 MINUTES OR MORE???
Am I missing something? People who like large tournaments are already expecting it to take several hours. They're fine with it. If they thought it took too long at 15 min levels, they'd just go play a turbo tournament instead. But aren't the majority of players like me, in that they actually prefer some time to make decisions?
I honestly want to know what happened to online tournament poker. SHORTENED BLIND LEVELS AS A MANDATORY FEATURE IS SIMPLY UNFAIR.
Agree? Or disagree
