I have qualified for the Sundaymillion 3 times, the long way with doublehootout satellites. First time i thought that everone one should be extremely good so i played my worts poker ever and went out early, second and third time i was just focusing on playing my own game and that worked much better, i finished ITM in both. So if you get a chance to play in Sunday Million, take it. It is a great experience and helped me devolpe me as a poker player alot, it gave me the confidence that i needed to become a better player.

Having a chance to enter it through a freeroll is one thing, but paying $215 to be side by side with 8,000 oponents is a big risk. Only a well prepared and ready for a 12 hour tourney player should pay it. I know i wouldnt spend $200 on it, but if i happen to win a ticket...

The big tournaments are very hard. I always play the Sunday-quartermillion on PS. 30.000 players and in average after 3h it's over. Sometimes in the money, but until now never at the final-table. Only to play good poker is not enough, in tournaments like this, you need a lot of luck to win.
Only when it will be money that I can afford to lose... well I guess it's never going to be... as I'm a low limit player, even if I win a satellite I would be very tempted to unregister and take the money...
much as i'd love to play in these events it's way too pricey for me to get in to. At a guess i would say huge chunks of profits are made from us smaller stakes folk so once in a while it'd be nice to see some rewards for us. And i'm talking proper give us something back not play 50 tourneys to get into the one spot for a $100 or play ten hours for $2. Gamble with us as much as we gamble with you once in a while is my thought.
