Here is all the information you need.

    There's late registration for all tournaments. I believe the Tuesday tournament usually has the most entrants.

    I've run the Casino Niagara structures through both the Patience Factor and "S" Points machines and compared them to a few Vegas summer tournaments. A summary of the results is attached. To me it looks like the Niagara Sunday tournament is pretty comparable to what I would call a second tier Vegas summer tourney (the Rio $250 Daily Deep Stacks would be very comparable). The Monday and Tuesday Niagara tournaments to me look more like turbo tournaments. Interestingly, the Monday tournament is labeled "Turbo" by Casino Niagara but the numbers would indicate the Tuesday tournament is more of a turbo than Monday (at least according to PF's).

    I'm not trying to discourage anyone from playing the Niagara tournaments. On the contrary, I think they are great value considering the low vig (much lower than any Vegas tournament) and the unlimited rebuys for several levels allows those with reasonable bank rolls to play aggressively early on to try to build their stack and rebuy as needed. I played the Tuesday earlier this week (first time playing at Casino Niagara) and found the play early on very "Wild Westish" (may have just been my table), which was probably a function of the low buy-in and unlimited rebuys. I intend to play again in the future but I'll probably make the Sunday tournament my next one.

    It was not just your table - it's most, if not all tables. There's lots of players with deep rolls who like to bomb and fire multiple bullets if needed.

    You need to survive a lot of land mines before the freezeout if you want to build a stack early.

    Doesn't that 30% of any winnings deter you even a little bit?

    Only have played Tuesday, but the blinds really make it a turbo. I believe there were more levels when it started and was cut back because a few people complained? I'm sure the vast majority would prefer a bit more play. 13 cards, if you're taking suggestions, imho, you really need to add, at the very least, a 100/200 no ante level. The cost per orbit between level 2 and 3 more than doubles, and 1 hour in, starting stack is already only 15 orbits. Replacing level 15 with a 4000/8000 and 5000/10000 would also help. Would only add an hour or so to the tourney, but would help to make it a little more gradual at least. For those who can't stay up that late, you could start at 11:30 or even 11 instead of 12:30. Would be good for all the tourneys. Thoughts?
