When thinking about this sums of money and the spectacular prizes, regular low buy-in tourneys like myself should start thinking of clouds and angels, like something completely unreachable. But ZmxPowah give me an idea: trying satelites to reach this. Usually i don't like to play them because it gives the sensation the prize is even way more far, one have to play several tourneys to try to reach one prize. Ok, its not a regular prize, but even with a huge prize, i prefer to play to win one game. Each tourney has a story. One can run well and the other dont, and so, its very difficult to achieve objectiv...

Posted by JazzyJeff: Tx guys, this could be lifechanging . I'll update on my progress
Exactly what I was going to suggest. would be great to have a running thread on how you guys are doing in the Tournament. Might want to start a new thread for that one. I´m only plaaying the last qualifier in a few hours, so don´t know if I´ll be in. If I do make it, I´ll join the thread.
Best of luck guys!
------------ Well... Screwed this one up as well... 45.000 runners and counting when I went out after less than a half hour of play. No $5 million for me. But good luck to the qualifiers!

i did the same one jack got into through the $1 qualifier then got through the insane $11 qualifier then lost half my stack on the very first hand of the $5mill lmao and tbh struggled all the way never got one prem hand best i got was KJ for 2 hours then an AQ but everyone folded gutted, ended up with 7bb left and had a little bash at a steal was comitted ran into As had to call the reraise hope i was live hit the 9 on the flop and jesus told me to piss off didnt answer my prayers and busted out somewhere above 22k people left. tbh i think i did ok considering i really did not get any cards really i was surviving on stealing, its a tough game when you cant catch some cards. anyway it was good to be a part of it sick first prize $1.6 mill looked so pretty anyway had fun hope someone did good in it
------------ i went out with K9 suited btw lol but still did well to make it through about 90k players to get there you should try qualify for the normal sunday mill jack still about 250k first prize not to shaby at all GL

I think it is sad that this 17 year old guy from netherlands got busted. But i think he has to blame himself. He was really dumb cause he was bragging on twitter that he will be rich. really dumb. i hope he can keep his money.
