I've also been playing the satellite qualifiers for a ticket to a BIG money final game,...but with 20,000 entrants and only 50 tickets given out,....it's pretty much a huge donkfest, and a hope in hell to get one... but I keep trying!

Posted by xgcsnippy: best I have done with 20k runners is 189th place, havent come any closer yet
Finished around 300~ myself but saw a buddy finishing in top 50 in his 4th or 5th try. Was really lucky thou... the play went on hand-by-hand mode and he was the BB for all his stack... everyone folded around ( eve the big guns) and the SB didn't want to risk another 40k to call him even thou he could afford it lol. That hand saved him the tournament and 2 rounds later it was done.
For what i saw, besides the HUGE amount of luck required, if you manage a stack of around 300k when there's less than 200 runners left you should be ok...

Posted by av1966: Looks more like bingo then poker lots of donks crazy players and only 50 tickets its very hard but we got to keep on trying Good luck at the tables
That's EXACTLY what those freerolls are,....big bingo tournament donkfests... There's not much sense in trying to play a good game there...
...and if you look in the list of entrants, you'll see hundreds and hundreds of them have duplicate and multiple accounts.... They play like idiots,...lose,...then go to their next account and repeat the crap all over again...
I just shove EVERY hand from beginning until however long I last.... and I don't care if I lose...
Managed to get up to about 60,000 chips in one game. I should have cut out the nonsense at that point and play normal,...but I shoved once more and got eaten by a big stack... < lol....
