The direct buy-in is less than na entrance to WSOP ($10,000 equals €8,153.40) so i believe those 1,000 seats can be all easily ocupied. We aren’t talking about na event that will take part in the USA, but still, it may be a good chance for european players to do a cheap travel to UK and investo n this (travel to Las Vegas to be in the WSOP would always be more expensive). It wil be nice to see pics from the stadium with the 3,000 players.
So the online tournament is like a satellite for the live tournament, when players can buy-in directly for the live tournament... Probably the prizes will also be distributed like there was 3000 players at the beginning.
