Firstly, thank you both for taking the time to share your concerns. I am sorry I was not in the office over the past couple of weeks, even donkeys deserve a holiday from time to time.
RPOS has been designed in a way that allows games for every player on the site. Not every player views the games in the same light or puts equal weighting on each game type, so we must cater for all players.
It is not a case of determining the importance of players who prefer certain poker variants, but a reflection of how the MTTs on the site play. Both Royal and 7 Card Stud are a minute percentage of the hands played on the site, and their popularity is reflected in the schedule. We want to accommodate all players, but we don’t want to run a series that is poorly attended and overlaid.
This is the reason that we offer a very small number of Pot Limit Hold’em events. There are people on the site that play the game, even if it is not popular. I have checked the records, and you both played the Pot Limit Hold’em MTT in RPOS last year, so the MTT format does exist and you both have willingly participated with no complaints in previous RPOS.
I am sorry to hear that the schedule does not match your expectations, these are the first complaints that we have had in regards to the schedule. In terms of NL/PL Omaha MTTs, both formats are played. There is a current trend of playing No Limit Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo Ring Games over Pot Limit, but for a tournament format, Pot Limit is the more skilful format.
That being said, we recognise there is an oversight in the High Roller Series and we will adjust event #6 so that it’s a No Limit Omaha Hi/Lo event.
Thank you for sharing your concerns,
