Mike Sexton: Disagree with deepstack structure

On December 3, 2012, Mike Sexton published on his PartyPoker blog entitled "The Structure Debate" a debate on structures or in tournaments. He again spoke about his dislike of deepstack structure. The commentator of the World Poker Tour announced that players who think to optimize their chances of winning a gain due to the increase of level of play and the extension of days of competition in a tournament are wrong. He used the word of one of his acquaintances as argument who said: "Good players do not complain structures, they adapt to it." Mike Sexton continued his explanations in formulating a practical example. He mentioned that all poker players do not have time to play a long tournament. Many people must also consider their work and family life. He also mentioned the feat of Chris Moneymaker who won the title of world champion of poker after qualifying in a satellite tournament, proving that even a beginner can win when he can adapt to the structure of the tournament on which he will participate.

Mike Sexton also argued that the more tournament is short, the more it attracts a maximum field. Thus, the amount of gain to be filled by the winner and paid to members of the list will be much more important. In addition, recreational players and fans can have more chance to be on the podium because the number of professionals in this field will be lower. Note that this theme on poker tournament structure is important to him. He has already spoken about it in 2010. But will all poker professionals and also players share his opinion ?
