Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Structure Chat

• Taso 2: 200-400, 0 ante

Daniel Negreanu's table has by far been the most chatty in the tournament. Recently they have been talking about the new structure of this event.

"I like this structure," said the player in the nine seat.

"I've been trying to get them to do this to the structure for years, and it's payed off, because everyone seems happy," replied Negreanu.

At this point one of the tournament directors overheard the conversation and came bounding toward the table.

"We lost one player already Daniel, that's gotta be impossible in a limit tournament," the TD said.

"No, that's how it should be," started Negreanu. "Years ago we would start with 5,000 in chips and the levels would be 10-20, 15-30, 20-40 and the whole tournament would still be in six hours later."

The consensus around the tournament area is that it is definitely a welcomed change to the structure and we'll see if the opinions stay the same throughout the tournament.
