Morning all,

As I outlined yesterday, part of our commitment to the improvement of the Hendon Mob League is player input. These tournaments are run to reward the loyalty and for the benefit the forum users and we will be looking to achieve player feedback wherever possible.

The first matter on which would like feedback is on League scheduling. The September leagues are scheduled to run on Thursdays. These will take place as scheduled. Future months however are under review.

Whilst some users have expressly indicated their opinions in previous threads, we feel the best way to gauge opinion on this subject is to run a poll.

Thanks for contributing and helping us work to improve the league.

Can only select one option.

Tuesday is usually best, Thurs second and Wed is okay. Weekends get a bit tricky and Monday is worst.

I really like that the top ten win something - even if it is $11, $55 or $109 entry.

Obviously you have dependencies with Stars/FTP - but I would like to see some rebalancing with the league. Some idea's would be to run longer leagues (10/15/20 week blocks) redistribute prizes perhaps create top prize to a live events, create play-off /ironman games to live events. Have the owners/admin/mods play the league, perhaps stick bounties on specific players heads.

You'd be amazed how easily you could re-position a successful forum league by offering a UKIPT package for a 10 week league (+ breakdown for rest of top 10), have the person represent the forum/GPI with a hoodie/hat/t-shirt whatever, write up the experience, etc.

Most players just want a league that's fair and organised where the simple things get done, and it looks like the owners care.
(Positional updates by the following day, Queries answered).

Yes, I know it takes resources but ultimately the brand is so getting ruined.

I could put more but really I'll just see how things pan out over the next few weeks/months given recent history.

I hope the leagues stay on Monday to Thursday nights. They're something to look forward to during the week.

I like Thursday as it doesn't clash with Champions League footy and most other midweek matches.

Surely there's enough poker going on already on Sunday evenings? I hope they don't get moved there.

Tenda - I'm not sure I understand the question. Perhaps you could rephrase?

SamJess - Thanks for your reply. There's a lot of food for thought. All I can say at this stage is that the League is under review, and we are looking at ways to improve it and re-engage with the players. All suggestions we receive will be given consideration.

Frodge - Thanks for the input. You make a good point about Sundays. We are however looking to increase participation and are keeping our options open in this regard.

Roland.

My thoughts:

Through tradition THMF league was always on a Tuesday. As the old guard set up Pokermob and ran a league on the Tuesday THMF got moved to Wednesday.

I can't do Thursdays. Now as you are running (hopefully) two leagues I would very much suggest running them on two different days. That way you will get more numbers for both as not everyone can either be in both due to the Country they are in or have mastered two tabling on two different sites.

Plus, most importantly if they cant do one day at least they can be in the other league on another day (on the other site).

I can do any day but Thursday but would prefer not to do Friday or Saturday as wont be able to do some ot hose either. So in order of preference Tuesday, Wednesday, Momday, Sunday. I have voted for Sunday in the poll as that seens most likely to defeat Thursday!

I wish I could have voted for two days, as in general I would prefer if they would not be on the same day

Thursday is best day. Sunday would be ok, but I would have real problem to include these tournaments to my already overstretched schedule.

Current prizes are great, they're versatile. I would probably miss these events if some random UKIPT-packages would be awarded. Of course it would be very different with EPT-packages, but they're far more valuable.

Weren't the Pokerstars league run on a Thursday anyway?

I would say that the increased numbers says more about giving the password in ADVANCE then with a few hours before it is due to start.........
