I agree with captins BUT the players should be randomly allocated to each captain that way the field will be level dont want 4 triple crown winners in one team tbh, if something along these lines is done im in

Well, the point of captains is to avoid a random draft. Each team has a captain and there's a draft order. Each captain picks one player until everyone has been selected. Unless your captain is a complete moron, there's no way there would be 4 triple crown winners on 1 team and 4 players with <50k in cashes on another.

I'm not a fan of the higher and lower tiers.....If people are in the contest I guarantee you that they are playing anything ranging from 3r to the 215 high rollers. Make it all one. maybe a 150 entry fee for the whole series all merge tournes tracked on p'5s count. then pick top 30 scores and top ten from each player. You will get a lot bigger turnout for this comp if you combine both, and will be less work

TBH im not in many of the £215 only a few of the 109's mainly 10 - 55's if you made it 100 to 150 Id play is that 150 a team or per person? if its a team then im down for $250 if its per person 150 max for me sorry, Im down for the captain idea, but really think the captain should mix the team for all stake level players, i mean what happens if i dont get picked lol dont want an elitest event

I'd much rather have only one tier. A bunch of people posted in the last competition and PM'd that they wanted something with lower buyins only. I'm fine with making one tier with all and one tier with low only. And if enough people don't sign up for the low side, it won't run.

I do think it's unfair to have a all tiers category but include people on a team that are only playing a subset of the schedule. And since captains may not know that before hand, I'd prefer to keep the buyin at $250 and run a low comp on the side if enough people are actually interested.

Correct me if im wrong but are u saying if we dont play say the higher level buy ins that the low level players like myself are not welcome and would have to play in a low that may not run correct? Like I said i play to play all the low's a few of the middles and a couple of the bigs, but what if I only wanted to play the buy ins up to say $30, if im not able to play as part of a teamrather know now

Cliffs:

In for whatever, BUT in the interest of the smaller guys think it should be open to all no matter what the buy in I mean what cant a team have 4 players 2 High stake players, 2 Med/Small players.

I mean I cant see us getting enough teams to play a low only event but if we inc all levels top avg score for each player then its a comp for all.

Prob wont go down like that and feel its going to be for the high stakes mid players only if im honest :-(

I'd love to include the low stakes players. That's why the low tier is there. I personally am worried enough low stakes players won't be interested, but I'm happy to run it if there interest is there. Depending on what happens, we may be able to find a compromise where we include 1 low stakes person on each team with 3/4 high stakes people.

The one problem with the LS tier is that P5s is a forum for MTT players. Most of the US players that play regularly now are experienced past mid/high stakes guys, unsurprisingly. As a result, I don't think many of the exclusively low stakes players pay regular attention to the forums, and therefore probably wont play. If you play the low stakes and really want that tier to take off, promote it at the tables and tell the other LS regs.

Hey im down for what ever but i cant buy in to all the high buy ins as well not rolled for them, and just playing them to play in the comp is daft but ill let the big boys play if u do get interest or open it to all players im in

could we have a low tier single player not team then if ur worried about numbers

This is a good idea as a 2nd contest since many that are in the team contest will play this since they will play the lower stakes games anyway.
