Wanted to get some of your feedback as we get closer to our completely rake-free offering.
From time to time I’m going to drop in on this but wanted to keep it simple and see what you would prefer.
Double Ups: Lets use a $5, 229 person Double Up as an example. This is (was) an industry standard size, raked at 12.7%. (Sites are taking 29 x $5 = $145 out of the prize pool)
When we move to rake-free, would you prefer:
Change it to $5, 200 person, with the top 100 winning $10
(competing against 29 less people than other sites for the same prize)
Change it to $5, 229 person, with the top 100 winning $11.45
(competing against the same amount of people as other sites, with a larger prize than other sites) (Think of this option as a “Double Up Plus”)
Both of these options make more players winners and require less of a win-rate for a player to be cash game profitable – All good things for you all!
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
