Their regular tourney structure is pretty bad. I was thinking of playing
the 1k$ sat with same structure except 30min blinds and 5K in chips. It is
somewhat more similar to when they run their bay 101 open which has a
somewhat reasonable structure.

You'll get into the all-in fest with people sitting on their last chip
thinking whether to call getting 10-1 on their money. It always shocks me
seeing someone post 2/3 of their stack in the big blind and then fold.

I didn't look at the $1k structure, definitely the way to go. When are you
going to play?

They only run them for 1 week. March 7th through 14th. Maybe I get up the
nerve to play the 2K event then I might not play the sat at all but the 2K
event has to be huge -EV. Otherwise I am thinking 7th or 8th depending on
the schedule. I don't know if you need to prebuy your seat.

They also have what looks like crazy structure one table sats on Fri
mornings.

Have we met?

Do you play at Lucky Chances? I used to play at Bay 101 years ago, the
Oaks, but now mostly LCs.

I doubt it. I usually play with the work lunch crowd and when they have
reasonable tourneys like bay 101 open. LC is too much of a drive. I live
in santa clara. How is the 40K tourney in LC, structure seemed not bad by
bay area standards?

I play cash games only at LC. I have never played a WTP event so that is
why I was wondering about the Sats.

Playing a WTP event is on my bucket list, maybe this year. Let me know
when you are at Bay 101 next, I have an office in Santa Clara now. Do you
play LHE or spread? I don't even know what type of games you can get at
Bay 101 anymore. No Stud probably.

No stud, one table omaha 4-8 with half kill. I don't play higher limit so
6-12, 8-16, 5-200 (only 200 max buy-in, garden city lets you buy-in for
400). I've seen them spread even 100-200 but not last few times I was
there. Sometimes they get crowded even in the afternoon.

I played bunch of prelim WPT events at Reno. The cheap ones. 500$ buy-in.
Never 10K event something I want to do at least once in my life.
