Pokerstars makes everyone dream about the possibility of getting rich just for playing cards during a few hours. Many would say “how can that be possible? I know how to play cards too”. Yes, that’s this this tourneys have so many players. Some know what they have to do to try go reach the nearest possible to the first prize, others are already dreaming with the supercar stopped next to their doors. Not going this time, but if I get some of this action when I am on vacation, I will give my contribution to pay this prizes.

let's think- sunday million $215 buy-in= 6 millions guaranteed, red spade open- $55 buy-in= only one mil guaranteed, there is clearly bigger value for the buck to play the sunday mil...(about 50% premium) so i guess the better option would be to go for the big fish (or at least take a few shot at the satellites)

well, yeah, Sunday Million is for sure the mother of all MTTs & the cornerstone of every tourney player, but it seems that this Red Spade thing (with the Pros elimination factor) will be boost the adrenaline... 55$ for a hunt of $200k 1st place... seems decent!

You better watch out ---> last time I won 6 tickets in VPP sattelites, each 55 T$ and 4 days later PokerStars just "deducted" / like they say/ the money from my account saying it was a software misteake, I wake up - switch on Lobby and there is 275 $ less at my Casher, than 6 hours before.

I wish I could find some money to play in this tournament, would be sweet. But for an amateur player like it is just not worth spending 55 bucks and be swooped away before any in-the-money-action. But I will be observing and ontinue dreaming, as Fakiry says, about getting rich someday....
