Ultimate Poker’s Jeremy Ausmus – Is The Monster Stack Too Much of a Good Thing?

Get a professionals take on the Mini-Main Event.

The Monster Stack (aka the “Mini Main”) is an undisputed success – so should the World Series of Poker load up the 2015 schedule with a ton of deepstack bracelet events? Not so fast says Ultimate Poker pro Jeremy Ausmus, the Monster Stack may just be too good to do with any regularity.

Having himself hit the poker wall having taken #NoDaysOff this summer, Jeremy thinks that while this is a great event, it may be just too long to play poker for too little money…for most. No one is disputing that the $1.3M up top is amazing, but it’s going to take a least 5 days to get there and most people will be playing for 3 without the guarantee of any cash, you know?

Put a really ridiculous beat on a guy where I backdoored a straight vs his 2 pair. After the hand he gave me this odds chart! Nice guy, handled it quite well.

So what do you think? Should the WSOP double down on the mini-Main or is there such thing as too much?

The 3.5k remaining players come back at 3pm PST today to put in another full day of grinding.
