Excellent blind structure, but Payouts top-heavy

Room is headed in the right direction.

Pros: low tournament buy-ins, best blind structure in Chicagoland, management welcomes feedback

Cons: tournaments only pay the top 10%

My suggestion is to pay the top 20%, whereas spots 11-20% just get their money back and the top 10% get paid slightly less. Market it as 1 in 5 get paid and try it for a month. I think you'd be happy with the results :)

Also offer step tournaments :)

    Thanks for the positive review! The staff really appreciates it! We appreciate the thoughts on the payout structure. As we talked about, I'm considering giving it a run, but everything needs to be approved by the State. Check out our Majestic Fall Bash coming up in September! $400 buy in, 10% advance to day two, all day two players get paid. $55 step into the $400 as well. 96 $55 seats given away too! Things take a long time to get approved but they are fun to run when they do! -Nick
