I don’t remember how long did it took the last world record largest tourney, but I keep thinking that doing it on a Sunday its not the best idea. I know many users work at Saturday and that could be a problem in terms of trying to reach the biggest field ever, but doing it on a Sunday, a tourney that may last around 10 to 12 hours to be cleared, it’s a bit scary for some amateurs to go along with this. Having a $1 buy-in is the best, because people will think “for so few, I wil try my luck”, but thinking it can last till Monday and keep going on… If my wife lets me, count me in!
I love the idea of putting such a small amount of money and getting "rich" with it. The good thing is, someone WILL win it ^^ So of course I will participate, hoping to get lucky, win important races and big 3 way pots with aces

This is not about the tourney, but about the 10 years anniversary.
I got a mail the other day about a reloadbonus, in which one would get a buck for each point. It was quite a long time since I last played a PS, and I seemed to remember that the points did not come that easy.
Anyway, I was wrong. The max amount for the bonus was 10 $, but it was among the easier 10 $ that's out there at the moment.
Edit: OnT, I may be playing this here tournament too, now that I got money there.

This tournament got the full 200k players registered, so it seems they broke their own record by quite a bit this year! Shame I was going to sign up for it, but by the time I went to sign up, it was already full! I should have saved a spot earlier, I guess.
