Yeah you need the ticket for it, anyway good luck hope you had a good run there and managed to get the ticket to the scoop event. Scoop event are the best and the hardest in my opinion for online poker events happening around the year. Most pros and regulars always play those events and the field will be tough so good luck mate. Maybe get lucky twice and you will be good for the rest of your life lol. Anyway cheers !! Not playing too late and no ticket!
None of you missed anything, these school toureys are the worst. Slow paced, a countless sit-outs and passive tables even on early blind levels... It's just all sort of terrible.
Yeah, it's nice to get some complementary ticks sometime, but I strongly advise to cough up the money to a couple of satellites if you want to make a run at the SCOOP events. Trust me, you will save time and effort with it.

yeah agree with bowie here- you didn't miss a lot, most of pokerschool freerolls are freemiums meaning that if you want to get sth out of them truly for free you must have flawlessly shaved balls and a ton of luck- this tourney had unlimited rebuys for some time, so you can imagine what a donkfest it was...still if you look at it as a free chance- you can't complain, even if a very small chance it's a free one.
Yeah, it's free, but judging by the rebuys count alone, some people would have been better off if they spent their money on those satellites I mentioned rather than wasting it in this structure and playerpool. That's why I don't like the privilege frees too (altough you don't have to make depo to get in, every chromestars - and above? - could by ticket for it on the vip section), those have better structure (ante from the first blind level) but why would anybody rebuy - for money! - on a freeroll that has been hold four times a day? Many people still do. It's just all sort of fantastic.
Again, anybody who could arrive to a good place in these could do the same (more or less) with a direct satellite. It's really not rocket science.

I played in this on my work based weekend of only paying freerolls.....(don't want to pay buy in just to have to leave the game if work calls) and came in around 850 for a princely 0.23c. For most of the game I was on tables that were exclusively Russian, apart from me, and it was a true shove n donk fest. Dunno why I bothered other than it was free!
