    Speaking as that (one-time) newb. When I was asked to join a team for the first time, my attitude was, "We play how long? for $50.00? That's IT?!?" I think a newb who is just getting "in" to poker would jump at such an inexpensive entry, especially with the huge network of games that can be realized from just one showing.

    Jeff, I deliberately left that end quote missing. Proper punctuation is fascist

    A lot of teams are made up of 30-40% completely recreational players. When recruiting to fill the final 3 spots (sometimes 4), telling people that there is Limit Holdem, Limit Stud, Pot Limit Omaha as part of the make up of the day is enough of a barrier.

    This is why I think $50.00 works for filling out the teams. Its not so steep that they can't learn a new game for once a year and have fun with 50.00 + 10 for Mvp/High Hand and Food and Drink $.

    Quickly turns into a 100.00 day regardless.

    I'd never want to lose the mix of games played during the day, that's the fun of the event, especially if only once a year.

    For most of you folks that get out and play a ton during the rest of the year, bigger buyins are there the other 364 days of the year to fill your fun of gamble, profit, higher stakes and good times.

    Hit the Royal in the fall for $50.00, meet up with the Forum members and newbies and have a good time.
