Anyone playing this promo? Just started today I think. I played the freeroll and the 10 FPP one, got a ticket to the $100K freeroll from the 10 FPP one, only about 1000 players in that one, with 67 getting the ticket. The freeroll satellite is harder, more people, and you can only play one per week.

Just had another look.

Ignored it at first as all the promotional material seems to refer to .net players, but I know where my FPP's are being spent for the next month

Target Tournament #382116305

Dear Darkman61,

You finished the tournament in 1st place.

This qualifies you for a seat in Tournament #382116305. A ticket to this tournament was issued in your name. You can use this ticket to register. See Tournament #382116305 Lobby for further details.


First attempt. Nice. Looking forward to this one

It's amazing what you can achieve in a field of 2,000 (make that 1,999 ) donks when the fear of a points deduction is removed.

Me and Merc against the world. Who's gonna join us ?

Got a tciket and used it for the later game on the 17th.
Wonder id these will be transferable like the Lambo tickets where.
Some people paid a hefty amount near the end for them.

Yeh, I won a freeroll ticket on my first try, and it was like, too easy...I was like, "is this for real". So I'm glad someone said something about it, because I was wondering.

Good Job to all of you who qualified, and good luck.

Not according to the FAQ:

Q. Can I transfer my final tickets?

A. No, tickets for this promotion are not transferrable. If you have a ticket that you cannot use, we cannot offer any compensation.

I've gotten 3 tickets so far, for some reason these seem so easy to make it at least close to the ticket. I'm registered for the first 2 weekly finals and the grand final.

I got one in a 10FPP tourney al well, and agree the field is fairly soft usually.

I also won a ticket in my first freeroll and I also couldn't believe how easy it was. People were
playing it just like it was the daily $90k freeroll, going all in with any 2 cards. I got KK on the 4th
hand, went all in & got 4 callers, giving me 7,500 chips. From that point, it was just a matter of
sitting back and waiting for premium hands and for everyone to knock each other out.

During both my 10FPP games, i got AA on the second hand of the game, on both occasions. Won about 4K both times. First one I got, a player went all in first hand, so figured second hand, s/he had nothing. Turned out it was a king and something else. S/he didn't hit, so easy money, although S/he did have a little money left over from the first hand, and every time he got a half decent hand (picture/number), went all in every hand. S/he won a couple of hands, but ended up going out in the 1600's (of 2000 players). Just goes to show, we don't just get them here at PSO.

I Got three already gotten from the 10 fpp ones and two more to go to be in all the events!

I will probably register for the final but if you only get one i suggest the weekly finals as more people will get a prize than the grand final.

I suggest people give it a try as they are pretty soft and since you get 1 freeroll pass a week it would be better to wait to near the end of the week as the fields are so much smaller.... from 10k entrants to about 2k .

For the 10 fpp ones, early or late american eastern time is the way to go for smaller fields. I hope this helps.

Good luck to every one!

I've been playing the 10FPP ones at 1pm and 3pm eastern, there have only been about 300-400 entrants in those with 67 getting the ticket, so pretty good odds.

Hey everybody, just a reminder that the Game of Your Life weekly final starts in 20 minutes.

Before it was 'Americas' only - it looks like now it's the rest of the world - twice as many people. Oh well, should be fun ...

GL for everybody who's playing!!
