I've been doing quite well lately in MTT freerolls.
Usually when winning multiple tickets for the same event, I'll get tournament dollars for the value of the ticket (which is nice). However, the PP Autumn million qualifier, qualifies you for the "Autumn million special", which is just for people that won a ticket; you can't buy in. This means that the ticket has no "tournament dollar value".
I've just won my fourth ticket for the PP "Autumn million special", a few minutes ago, but since this is the second one this week, and I had already qualified for this week's "special", I wonder what will happen to the ticket?
Does anyone know if I can simply use it for next week's "special"?
I'll probably find out soon enough, but it might save me the trouble of playing any more of the qualifiers, once I've got the ticket for that week...

Why do you keep playing those qualifiers if you already won your entrance ticket and there's no way to use or exchance these other tickets you're winning? Are you trying to elliminate some possible oposition by winning some tickets that, otherwise, would end in other players' hands? It seems like it. Good luck for the main event!

Its not a weekly ticket. You can use it whenever you like to play the special but it has to be for the same Season. For example if you dont play those tickets now they will be gone next Season event. So try and qualify and gl on getting into the final

Gratz for the two tickets. Normlly it is no problem to use the second ticket for the next event. But it is a good idea to play no more qualifiers for this event Perhaps they offer a ticket-rebuy tourney in the next time
Posted by zeroster: Think of it this way; Every ticket you win is one less ticket in someone else's hands. It's like eliminating the competition before the tournament even starts.
Lol, That had not occurred to me yet... Now if I can just win 800 tickets, I'll be in prime position to get one of the $640 entries to the main event...

Because it's there? No, the serious answer is that I only started wondering if the second win in one week would be useless, after I won it...

Sweet... That way I'm sure to play the next two specials. I'll report back once I've sucessfully registered for the one next week, to confirm you're right.

UPDATE: Mober was right by the way; I was able to use the ticket for this Friday; It appears you can win as many tickets as there are "Autumn million specials" left until the main event.
As a matter of fact I've just won my fifth ticket a few hours ago; So I'm covered for this Friday as well as the next.
I also won two other tickets today: Westen European 50 Seat Frenzy Qualifier finished 9th of 324 (top 10 gets $15 ticket to 50 Seat Frenzy) WPT National Vienna finished 12th of 3500 (top 25 is paid a $1 ticket)
along with my 5th one of these: Westen European Autumn million qualifier finished 9th of 507 (top 10 gets ticket for Autumn million special).
I think it's the first time I won 3 tickets on the same day...

Well, you're doing really well for yourself! Keep this up and I'll hope to see you at the tables since I also play at PartyPoker Why don't you join me at a cashgame table? I'll just be grinding the $0.02/0.04 Limit Hold'em tables so you shouldn't have any trouble finding me there from time to time Maybe I could learn something from you since you must be doing something right by winning all of those tickets!

Thanks! But I'm not too eager to play cash. I always fear that I end up on a table with colluders... Not sure how justified this feeling is though, since I never really played, since I lost half my NDB when I first started playing. Maybe I'll see you in some MTTs...
Posted by takingdrugs: mabee see you in it on friday, i am qualified also
done it a few times but only got the 50seat entry once
Great! I hope I'll last long enough for it to be likely we get seated at the same table. I almost never meet anyone from the forum (I played IslandJack a couple of times; we even both won the 50 seat frenzy some weeks ago; didn't chat with him though, because I never really do), except for the BRM freerolls (and even in those, there are precious few forum members).
The 50 seat frenzy is kinda my "bread and butter" tournament; I've won it 7 times I think, and its just about the only freeroll with a decent payout ($15). I don't use the tickets, so they all convert to tournament dollars.
