THAT THING CALLED STRUCTURE
When Lloyd Fontillas, Asia's premier Tournament Director, posted in his Facebook page this question: "How do you calculate how long a tournament is going to run?", I find it a bit surprising that not a tournament director and floor manager but a player was able to give the exact correct answer.
To those who haven't seen it, here is the answer posted by Justin "noclue_just" Chan: "Calculate the average stack when heads-up. Then make it in terms of BB. For turbo tournys, average stack when heads-up maybe around 10-15BB. For 40 min - 1 hr blinds tournament, average stack when heads-up maybe around 30BB - 40BB. Then look at the blind level at which it reaches such average stack. Then probably add 2 levels for heads-up. I think that's about it."
I wonder if other tournament directors or whoever is in charge for a cardroom to do tournament structure know such formula as more often we see tournaments ending way longer than scheduled or becoming a crapshoot.
