The Big, Bigger, Biggest Tourney Promo...

random tables will be selected to win a ticket prize, which is added to the regular tournament prizes by PokerStars. The prize is a free ticket matching the buy-in of the tournament you are playing, giving you another chance to enter the same tournament and win. The tables on which players have won a ticket prize will be announced 40 minutes after the start of the tournament, via messaging on the tournament tables, and all ticket prizes will be awarded instantly to the winning players’ accounts.

Well done

Nasty when you get that mis-buyin situation, happened to me once for 6x my buyin, just fixed the problem by coming first lol

Good luck, and worst case is you are on an effective freeroll (assuming you can cash the prize in for TD$)

Nice One easy.
I once thought I was registering for the $1 Sunday spark rebuy but registered for the tourney below it.
The $55.00 (1R1A) and took the rebuy straight away as I would in the spark before I realized,

I wonder what the record bad-beat is for registering wrong

I guess it is limited to your bankroll of course
