1/14/10 – The Microgaming Poker Network has unveiled some innovative changes to its Multi-Table Tournament Schedule, which it claims are designed to offer players increased opportunities to improve their online poker experience.
The changes are the product of a rigorous feedback process involving the network’s player community and subsequent in-depth analysis, a network spokesman revealed this week.
The new schedule now includes larger guarantees together with several innovative tournaments that will inject greater liquidity into the network. One of these, ‘Survivor’, launched in 2009, requires players to compete against time-based elimination levels and is exclusive to the Microgaming Poker Network. It has already proved extremely popular amongst the player community, the network claims.
Limited field tournaments have also been introduced in both Double Up and Guaranteed (GTD) 1st prize events as well as more of the popular ‘Carnage’ all-in games. Double Ups are 100 player equivalents of the Sit ‘n’ Go (SnG) versions, where half the players double their initial buy-in.

GTD 1st prize tournaments let players compete for bigger rewards in smaller fields with reduced playing times; the winner is guaranteed to receive 100 times their buy-in, regardless of the number of players. Further changes include more turbos for the casual player and more places are paid in the daily freerolls. Each guaranteed tournament now also includes the average running time in its description, allowing people to choose tournaments that fit in more closely to their daily routine.
“We believe that the Microgaming Poker Network’s Multi-Table Tournament Schedule is now better than ever," says the network's head of poker, Andrew Clucas. "We have listened to player feedback and acted on it, delivering a number of smart, player-focused initiatives and we are confident they will meet the expectations of even the most discerning poker player."
