Just so everybody knows, today there are satellites to the Sunday Majors running for about one tenth the price of the buy-in, and each satellite has, "20 Seats Added." I'm giving the Kickoff a shot. Roughly 9% of the field would normally pay out, but thanks to Stars graciously donating $2,180 to the cause, I'm way more likely to get a seat.

Any time i can play an Event with Added seats its a big +EV

GTD be nice as they have a set on the prize pool but Added is so Much Sweeter one of the things that made the monthly PSO $11 Buy-In such a Sweet Deal was the $1k Added and not GTD


Best of luck on your run I hope ya get a seat or 2

My MTT game has improved a bit lately, so I'm looking forward to it. Weird thing is, they play to 1 even though everyone past the bubble gets a ticket.

I won a ticket in the Sunday Storm satty yesterday, there were 100 seats added by PS. I played it exactly like a PSO league game, including running the clock. I finished 28th out of 780, with 170 seats up for grabs.

Kinda weird that they play right down to the end, once the bubble was reached a lot of people were just shoving anything. I sat out after watching the bingo game for about five minutes, couldn't see any point in playing bingo poker.

thx for posting this,

after reading it, l jumped in a game,

PokerStars Tournament #399197294, No Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $20.00/$2.00 USD
886 players
$10750.00 USD added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $28470.00 USD

Dear effsea,

You finished the tournament in 80th place.

You have won an admission ticket to 'Moving Day - $215 Entry'. This ticket allows you to participate only in a tournament of this type. Tickets are not redeemable for cash or Tournament US Dollars; if you register and then unregister from the tournament, your ticket will be returned.

Oh cool!

As soon as I got my $5's from last month's PSO I went and blew it on Sunday Storm sattelites, so I already have my ticket - hope they do this again next week, so maybe can qualify for cheaper.

Sunday Storm is supposed to have a 5000 chip starting stack, so looking forward to that! I like your idea Joy of just trying to play these things like PSO. I'm going to try that tomorrow - clock-counting and all

GL everybody on your games tomorrow!!!

That's a nice story

Sometimes I get nervous when something's new, and wind up doing stuff like holding onto AA too long, etc. But that's nice to know that if you just stick to the stuff we've all been practicing in PSO, it's a solid foundation of good play. If I don't cash this time, there's always next month, and hopefully one of these days everything'll line up just right

Hopefully poker will become legalized in the US soon and then you all'll be able to come back and join us
