20 minute blind levels is still to long for me. I prefer 10 min blinds at the most if not i get bored. Whats the regular blind levels if theu consider 20min hyper lol? Like 3hours?

10 min blinds in online tournament is equal to 30 min blinds in live tournament, so this tournament would be equal to 7 min blinds online tournament...

The tournaments are coming thick and fast now.It must be a decent tourney to play if you start and finish in the space of a day and probably better for the inexperienced players not to have the chance to think too much.

If this really equals to seven minute blindlevels when comparing them to the online tournaments then I am not sure this was really a hyper tournament. As far as I know online hypers have 3 minute levels, and turbos having 5. I know it's nitpicking but still...
