re: Poker & MTT payouts, do you prefer top 10 or 20%?
obviously more places paid gives you better odds
of cashing, but if the payout barely covers your buy-in whats the point...
a typical Pokerstars
tourny where18-20% of field cashes.....they barely pay 50% out over final table
if you finish middle of the pack of players who cash you about double your buy-in after deducting tourny fee.... play a heads up and do the same without having to get by hundreds of players and wasting 4 hours
a tourny should pay out top 10% of entries..
tourny should pay minimum of 40-50 percent of prize pool out over first 3 places
and another 20 - 25% paid out over rest of places at final table......spread the remainder out amongst the rest of top 10%
