Discordian here: As I recall last time, some people thought that the hourly progression was a little slow and wanted to change it to 45 mins or something similar. It's all good to me though. I'm looking forward to having a good time. I'll be there.

Alternately, do something like the online casinos do: Blinds progress per 10 hands. So you have 10 hands at 1/2, then 10 more at 2/4... etc. At least, that's how it goes in the single table tourney's online. You might want to bump the numbers so it's 15, 20, 23, 42, or even 1,294.3 hands (which would be a bitch to keep track of)....

Our problem with that is we have different tables - and some tables may go through hands faster. That means that every table wouldn't be on the same blind progression at some point.

How do they do it at the real deal?

the "real deal"

Don't know... Once I win the satellite, I'll let you know...

Of course, that requires me to win the satellite....

I've only played in non-tournaments, and single table tournaments (so far). I'm working up my skills (and account balance) before trying the big games.

The casino tournament that I played in last week upped the blinds every 20 minutes. I had the impression that was pretty standard casino-wise.

The $200 buy-in tournament I played in Tunica several months back upped the blinds every hour. We got a ten minute break every two hours or so.

The blinds might progress more quickly for smaller satellites like the ones that navydave has played in, they probably progress much more quickly.

I made up progression seven and though we might use it this time. It's a little steeper at the beginning so hopefully will help prevent the game from going ten hours or more. Also, with the set rules of bets being minimum of the big blind and re-raises at least the size of the raise before, we can make sure that no one slips back to just raising one or two for certain hands.
