This seems very acessible for eveyrone! $2.20 HU is real low, and, if things start running good at the begining, it can even become a successful bet for some amateurs who weren’t counting on going far in something like this.

Have you already breaked the 15 HU non-loosing mark? GL for all who enter this!!!

this is kinda uninteresting promotion inmo- no point in in playing $2.20 for just pure volume, and then even if your country ends up as one of those who will play in bahamas, you will still have to somehow beat staggering competition to get in...so eventually after grinding $2.20 you just create chances for someone else to play in the bahamas...

Its a joke and there is few reasons. First, it favorize countries with lot of players. Bosnia or Andora dont have chance in group with Russia. Second, even if me and like 5 other players qualify Bosnia to PCA we wont have anything as a prize since we wont probably go. Instead there will be new tournament only for players from qualified country and players who qualified it will have same chance to go to PCAlike anyone from that country.
