Well, have fastly lost (on a bluff -_- : stupid idea since you should never bluff in a lotto tournament). @Dozn01 : it was a turbo tournament : i think it was finished after 6 hour (like a standard MTT).
Would have been nice to win 50K ^^ bah for the next record (1000 000 players? xD )

OMG! Another sob story, sorry.....Ended up 64000th I was doing well so far Holding AK, A and rags on the flop Someone raised and I went all-in He was going for an inside straight He was holding 86 He didn't make the straight, but an 8 on the turn... I said, no worries... And an 8 comes on the River, TRIPS!
Conclusion.... How many times can you say: "That's Poker!" before going on a killing spree? To be announced... on CNN...

Last days i havent had much time to play a bit of my favourite card game, and i am only knowing today of this event (you can imagine how my mail is, with lots of unreaded greatings and comments from friends). I think that, if i have had time, it would be nice to make part of it, considering that, according to your numbers, a fifth of the players would have right to a prize. I will have to wait for next pokerstars big event. And it have to start on a friday night so i can manage to play till sunday night: 48h non stop, that would be a record for me too!!!
I participated but was out pretty quickly. This tourney was, how else could it be, filled with no-brainers who just wanted to "enlarge the heap" and didn't really care about sitting there for maybe six or more hours to get deep. A lot of them just played as if it was just for fun, so I don't consider it a real tourney.
BTW : you come up with less than 150.000 participants, whereas I seem to recall there were more than 168.000 registrants. Wonder how they make the official count for such a record attempt.
