      Anyone else grind these and hate the new changes?

      1000 starting chips, 8 minute levels...

      I loved the turbo structure so much better. It took roughly only 30 minutes before to reach final table and now 30 minutes in the blinds are only 50/100...

      Hi KozakFB,

      I tend to play the much longer tournament formats personally so haven't tried the new 40 player sng's.

      Do you multi-table these at all, either in sets or continuous? that can sometimes help in terms of structure/time wise, as long as you keep track on what stage each tournament is at (relative stack size etc).

      Do appreciate however that a change away from a favoured structure can be frustrating though. It can also provide opportunities of course as you are more likely to adapt to them quicker than an average recreational player?

      Good luck & let us know how you get on.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      I multi-table continuously. Hard to get a proper set going with the limited traffic at 888.

      I played couple and won 1 of them but it took over an hour, under the half hour.

      Definitely a lot more easier to win them now but the time adds up.
