I've been watching this for a while, and it's down to 2 players, John Dibella and Kyle Julius, both Americans. During the broadcast, they announced that John Dibella qualified through the Ukash promotion, which offered freerolls for deposits to your PS account through Ukash, with the grand prize a seat at the PCA Main Event.

How does an American qualify through this promotion?? Maybe I'm missing something, but this seems kind of strange, I was under the impression that Americans weren't allowed to play for any kind of prize with a cash value.

Update, he just won it!! Hit his flush on the river, with 5c6c. Just wondering how this is possible, if Americans can't deposit.

During the presentation of the award, they said he qualified through a $1K satty, so they must have had some live tourneys as well as the deposit promo. Guess that answers my question.

Pretty nice return for him, he played well and ran better!!

Think that's probably the answer Joy. I'm pretty sure I received e-mails from Stars regarding live PCS satty's myself.
