I have been playing a bit on and off, not really making a dedicated stab at it, but certainly paying attention and not getting myself into any trouble. I have played a few free rolls (7000 people, 6000 of them total idiots playing anything and everything) and a few qualifier types to see what is what.
The first thing I notice is that since the increase in starting chips, the actual number of people left after an hour seems to have dropped. I use to see about 50% of the people left after an hour, and now I am seeing more like 40% or even less. It means that you have to pile chips a little faster because people are playing hard and screwing up massively.
It is interesting, if nothing else.
