DTD XXL Tournaments

on 2016-03-11, 14:07
Was considering going to Nottingham to play the XXL Monster tonight... but am unsure whether it will be a bit of a crapshoot? Has anyone played these? It's only a 20 minute clock and the structure looks pretty fast... do these things quickly turn into a massive shove-fest?

Certainly does and it ends up a £80 comp, saying that i got a result recently. But it suits my kind of game any 2 cards.
My advice enter during the break for the full amount, after all the silly play. Be prepared to battle 200+ players and a late finish even with those blind levels.

Cheers for the info guys. I decided against it after seeing that structure. Getting lucky has never been my strong point.

Do the reloads mean you can take extra chips whenever you want like a triple chance tourney? Or are they just re-entries?

 Initial sit down is £25 + £5, you are given 2 reload chips each costing £25 for your use if required. No £5 is charged as you are not re-entering.

So can you pay £80 and start with treble the chips? Or only reload when you get knocked out

the reloads can be taken regardless of stack size, you dont need to be knocked out, so its a double top up / add on.

Well if I make the trip any time soon I'll do what the other guy said then. Buy in at the break for 60,000 chips!
