Full Tilt Considering MTT Changes

Wednesday, 21 January 2015

According to site representative Shyam Markus, Full Tilt is planning a major overhaul of its MTT tournaments.

Posting on the Pocketfives forum, Markus explained that MTT changes are in the offing. However, before this happens, the site's representatives want the community's take on things.

The changes are provisionally set to take place in February and the main difference players will notice is a shift in buy-ins. At present, both MTT and SNG rosters have a large number of incremental price increases.

In an effort to clean up the buy-in ladder and make things look ‘nicer’, many of the existing levels will be removed. For example, $20, $25, and $60 levels have been consolidated into $25 and $50 games.

This precedent means that when the new changes come in (barring any alterations) there will be eleven buy-in levels:












Rake is also expected to change but will be within five percent of the proposed entry fees.

Another change to the way Full Tilt handles MTTs will be with regards to satellites. Moving more in line with the system in place at PokerStars, satellite tickets in the VIP Store will now be generic and not specific to certain game types such as Jackpot SNGs, Steps and FTOPS events.

Overall, the changes are designed to make the MTT schedule a lot easier to navigate and better value for everyone. As well as adjusted buy-ins, some tournaments are expected to be given a starting chip boost with the average increase switching from 1,500 to 2,500.

Before any changes come into force, Full Tilt will be taking comments and critiques from players in an effort to tweak things and ensure everyone is happy.
