    I’d like to know the following:

    1 -- Payout schedules for various tournaments. Is it determined by percentages or amounts?

    2 -- Opinion about payouts for this scenario --
    • $30 buy-in
    • No re-buys
    • Players range from 8-30 but average 13-14
    • All money paid in is paid out as prize money
    • 10 players per table, but would you change it if it was 8 (up to 32 players) or 9 (up to 27 players) per table.
    3 -- Do y’all do 8, 9, or 10 to a table? Does it change for the final table?

    4 -- Does the number of payout places vary with a recreational game vs. a serious game for a home poker tournament?

    Our current structure -- 10 to a table
    8-9 -- 3 places
    10-14 -- 4 places
    15-20 -- 5 places
    21-27 -- 6 places
    28-30 -- 7 places

    I’m asking because a player has suggested a very different payout schedule – more based on the # of tables. I’d like to know what others are doing to compare to what our group is doing.

    I appreciate any feedback!
