PokerStars floats cap game question
The questions included:
- If PokerStars introduces tables where no player could wager more than 20 big blinds in any one hand (also called ‘CAP’ games), how will you react?
- How would you feel if PokerStars changed minimum and maximum buy-ins to offer 20BB - 50BB buy-in tables and 50BB - 100BB buy-in tables?
It also asked me to choose one of the following statements:
I would like to see 'cap' games added
I would like to see deepstack games added, 100BB - 200 BB
I would like to see the minimum buy-in raised on 20BB-100BB tables
I would like new buy-in limits introduced to keep deepstack and shortstack players on separate tables.
On the 2+2 forums, the PokerStars VIP manager said there have been surveys out to "casual" players and input from forum members. A decision with any changes is expected to be announced in April. Here's the link to that thread.
Personally, I suck at CAP games. It would be interesting to see 200 big-blind deep stack NL games, like Full Tilt has, at 'Stars.
But I think the real question is whether 'Stars can come up with something like Full Tilt's "Rush Poker" that has revitalized the game.
