Strange Regional Format: Gold Rush + Side Game, No Open Pairs??

The online regional on BBO is a very exciting innovation, but it seems extremely strange to have a 299er and gold rush game without a concurrent two-session open pairs event!  On Friday, May 1st 2020,  the gold rush awarded 27.41 gold to overall 1st of 390 tables.   

Normally, the payout for an open game inherits the table count of all concurrent limited games.  Instead, there were two single-session "side games" that only paid 65% of the usual open game amount... and did not gain the limited game table counts.  The open game paid less than the Gold Rush!

Fortunately, Saturday and Sunday seem to have more normal schedules: two-session gold rush and open game, concurrent.
