Have you guys heard about the Sunday Million on March 6th? It's the fifth anniversary of the Sunday Million, and PS is putting up a guaranteed five million dollars, plus other prizes, to pump up the event. I know the $215 entry fee is pretty steep for most, but there are plenty of satellites feeding in.

It seems like it'll be a pretty great event, and I think I'll try satelliting in. I'd like to hear what the rest of the forum thinks about the event, and if anyone is planning on entering.

I just did the mental math, and I think PS must be expecting at least 25,000 players in the thing, because, deducting entry fees, I'm pretty sure that's how many they'd need to pay off the prize pool. And that's not even including the car. It's like three WSOP Main Events rolled into one, and then some. PS certainly isn't lacking in ambition.

I love practicing navigation of large fields, and this looks like a rare opportunity. If I can afford it, I'm thinking I might just straight up have some of my spare cash cover this one.

Sorry to steal your thunder, ericnnancy.

Wow, just look at this satty. 1 hour to complete w/ 1000 seats on the line. It's going to be a crazy tourney. For those who enjoy a slower paced tourney. Try the 100 seat guarantee'd on the Saturday prior to Sunday Million. This is the one I'll be trying for. Tho, if I get lucky enough to win the tix. I may once again, just cash it out. I need a sat that forces me to buy in to Sunday Million. Just too big a buy in for me to justify. Not to mention the field size and strength. We'll have to see. She yall there. GL to ya Paniky, and Eric. -shark

If you dont have the balls to win big or go home then why even play poker? maybe you should play solitaire instead? no offense but playing 25 cent sngs your whole life will get you no where....

Cashing out the small profits instead of risking them on longshots isn't bad. It might not get televised commentators saying your name very often, but it can still yield profits. And I have heard of people playing satellites professionally. I don't know any personally, but it's doable.

There's this thing called bankroll management...

Read up on it sometime, then try again.

I have some sympathy with this opinion. There's nothing wrong with making the odd exception. You're most unlikely to make a really big score unless you do.

Hey eric, I understand where ya coming from. But, might want to tone down you're post just a tad. I'm just recalling when you told me to get a job, cuz my girl supported me during my poker re-start. I was a little put off by that post also. Just let it slide cause some ppl are just like that. You have no idea of the history between my girl and I. So, making blanket remarks will only get you burnt in this forum. I'm just sayin.... As for the Go Big, or Go Home. ( I love that saying) I for one am also going to cash a tix whenever possible. I'd cash a WSOP main event tix if they'd let me. I understand your desire to win big. I admire it, and hope you can realize your dreams. But, to belittle some one for showing good bankroll management skills will only get you criticism on the forums. I for one would need a 20K playing bankroll on stars alone to attempt to take regular shots at the Sunday Million. Not saying I won't try to sat in sometimes. I'm trying for the one on the 6th as, that would be cool. But, I'm not going to spend hundreds of dollars of my hard earned bank roll on a long shot. Shoot, if I win a tix, I may just cash it out also. Play more 40K daily. Don't know yet. Good thing they don't let you cash out WSOP main event tix. So, that will force me to win the millions. Good Luck to ya, and nothing I said to you was out of spite or meant to be hurtful. Just wanted to let you know how I felt. -shark

Cashed my $11 satty ticket out because I have to work on the 6th. Might run at it another 10 times to see if I can hit again or break even. It's a freeroll for me now.

If you win a seat to the ME through PokerStars, you won't have to. They deposit the cash into your account and it is up to you to withdraw it, take it to Vegas, and register to play. This is the only way they can do it because Harrahs doesn't accept any 3rd party registrations. At least they haven't the last few years. Until industry regulations come into US law, they're not likely too either.

Regarding this promo, I applaud good bankroll management, one of the biggest causes of otherwise good players failing at poker is bad bankroll management. But if you are going to take the occasional shot via a satty success at the bigger target tournament, a special promo like this one that figures to have great added value, makes a lot of sense. Don't forget you don't have to wait for satties to this special Sunday Million to take your shot... any old satty can work towards your effort, as you can always unregister from a seat you win and take the T$'s to put towards the Sunday Mil entry or additional satties..
