Are the tournaments limited to a maximum number of players?

The tournaments will continue to be held at 21:00 (9:00 EST) on Wednesday nights and the buy-in will remain $10+$1. What's the blind structure going to be like? I know a lot of people mentioned that last nights freeroll blind structure favored the donkeys rather then the real players.
Yes, I would like to know this as well. I liked the slow structure when I played in one when the site opened A LOT. Whatever the structure is, I can work with... I just don't like it being an all in fest right after the first break.
Once the website gets up there will be a link to all these type questions, but there are 3 types of blind structures, slow, normal, and turbo. For now I have asked the tournaments be set up to the 'normal structure which I believe is blind increases in 15 minute increments. This should allow for plenty of play and be very comparable to Poker Stars. If it turns out this becomes a card catching contest or everyone at the final table just has a stack that is a few BB then we can switch these to slow.

I think its limited to 2000 people, but we can change that if need be. To be honest I dont see much more then 300 people ever playing these, but I could be wrong.

OK, here is the normal structure for FCP:12 minute levels:10/2015/3025/5050/10075/1505 min break100/200150/300200/400300/600400/8005 min break500/1000600/1200800/16001000/20001500/30002000/40005 min break4000/80005000/10000 - I'll stop here. That would be 3 hrs 24 min of playingHere is PS's structure we had last quarter in the Neg-O:15 min levels:10/2015/3025/5050/1005 min break75/150100/200100/200 25 ante200/400 25 ante (would be 400/800 on FCP at this point)5 min break300/600 50 ante400/800 50 ante600/1200 75 ante800/1600 75 ante (would be at 2000/4000 on FCP at this point)5 min break1000/2000 100 ante1500/3000 150 ante (most tournies ended around here last period)2000/4000 200 ante3000/6000 300 ante5 minute breakEven though we will have more players this upcoming period, I think the tournies will be shorter because of how the structure is set up. I do not have the structure for the slow blind levels. I know that they are comparable to the PS intervals even though there are no antes at any time. Every tourny on FCP I have been in that had the normal structure that I did not double my chips in the first hour, I was at all-in or fold mode.I think it would be much better to have the slow structure as it would allow for more play for everyone that is not just all-in or fold.In the old structure, the majority of all-in or fold started happening after about an hour and a half. In the normal FCP structure, it would be after an hour.Just what I think.... we'll see how the first tourny goes, but I know I will still be saying we should switch to the slow structure after it no matter how well I do.

A) A one hour 1:1 phone coaching/consultation with Daniel Negreanu.  You will have full access to Daniels brain for that hour and can even review hand histories with him if you like.B) A one hour 1:1 HU Online Poker Session against Daniel Negreanu where you will be able to play each other and chat real time, discuss hands, strategies, etc.
What if I want my 1:1 session to be with dna4ever?
I'm upset my question was not answered. I'm BOYCOTTING the tournies until it is.

I THINK the slow structure on FCP is something similar to this:15 min levels:10/2015/3025/5050/1005 min break75/150100/200150/300200/400 (PS would be 200/400 25 ante, FCP norm would be 400/800)5 min break250/500300/600400/800500/1000 (PS would be 800/1600 75 ante, FCP would be 2000/4000)5 min break600/1200800/16001000/20001200/24005 min breakAgain, this is probably not 100% accurate, but I think the big thing is 15 minute levels. I think that is a big difference.

Yeah I think the 15 minute blinds would be much more beneficial for the players. That also puts the same pressure on players after the first break inside the hour and a half mark. Skill will play much more of a part in it then just the hope and catch play.

This tournament has not been set up yet so whatever you are seeing is not this tourny. It will ONLY be accessible through the FCP skin and will be called "Weekly Negreanu Open" . To be clear you will NOT be able to access this tournament through the pokerroom skin itself, sorry.

Yes that is the TOC for the top 18 2005 Neg O Players and is by invite only. The Weekly Negreanu Opens will begin to the public on January 11th and will be located in the regular Tournaments section, labeled "Weekly Negreanu Open"

are fcp tourney breaks 10 minutes or 5? I know the poster above said 10, but he also said 10 for pokerstars, and I know stars is 5. IMO 10 minutes is too long for tourneys of relatively small size.

Any chance at mixing up the dates weekly, so it doesn't completely shut out anyone that can't make Wednesday at 9 p.m.? Maybe rotate the day each week or something?
