Party Relaunches

I have recently been playing quite a few SNG tables at different sites and have discovered that I really enjoy them. I was just getting ready to sit and write up a nice long post comparing the SNG format at Party Poker to that of Full Tilt Poker when I learned that Party had updated their entire software package, including the structure of all tourneys (both SNG and MTT). I haven't had a chance to play with the new format yet, but I have to say I'm pleased with what I've seen for the SNGs. The much longer levels (10 minutes instead of 10 hands) and a substantially increased number of starting chips (2000 instead of 800) should give solid players a chance to actually play some real poker rather than being reduced to a crapshoot after the first two or three levels.

I'll still be posting my thoughts on SNG formats, but it will have to wait until after I've had a chance to test out Party's new platform.
