      Hi all

      PokerStars are running a HUGE $1mil guarantee tourney on the 31st July at 2100CET - It's a $55 buy-in with $1 million guaranteed, with at LEAST $200,000 going to the winner!

      In addition to this to celebrate the success of Team PokerStars Pro at the WSOP, Stars are putting a $100 bounty on each team pro's head. The bounty applies to any player with a red spade next to their name in the lobby so includes team PokerStars online pro too.

      It should be a huge field and a shot at the big bucks for a smaller buy-in, GL and find out more info here

      If you do, please use the staking forum area to add details and finalise everything so there is no misunderstanding later on.

      Please keep this thread for tournament discussion/railing etc and don't discuss money transfers/staking etc here.

      Many thanks ;)

      Oh and in terms of the tournament, I haven't had the chance to look into it this particular event yet, but not a great deal of time to run deep in long tournaments personally (not that i run deep that often :D )

      You realize this is turbo takedown? Even the buy-in is identical.

      Won a hyperturbo sattelite for it so i guess ill play it. At least 20K participants i believe so the chance of cashing wont be huge. What would you guys do? Play or grind some more hyper turbo sngs?

      Well played Beastofterror, many congrats.

      I personally tend to grind the first seat I win in events and try to multiply it up into a couple of seats. That way you can pretty much play it on a freeroll basis each week or once a month or whatever you want to do (subject to running good in the satties ofc).

      It is however totally up to you, if you wanted to have a go at the main tournament itself, go for it, you earnt your entry ;)

      Lastly and apologies for off-topic but I love it when Anssi posts in our Community... gotta love that Black Member avatar :s_thumbsup:

      Good luck in the tournament everyone,

      Took a one-off shot into this winning the $15+1.50 STT

      Just bubbled the Red Spade 4,377th/31,743 (top 4,292 cash) :(

      Never just look for min cash though.


      10bb shove from button with AQs still good I think, just unlucky big blind woke up with TT.

      Will post the hand in sample hands board shortly.

      gg, gl anyone still in.

      Hey mate thanks for the words of encoruagemnt, I'm still in the tourney (267th out of 375), about PMing you my user name, thanks for the offer but I don't count myself a very good poker player and I wouldn't want a SuperModerator to realise how much of a donk of a player I am with my poor players and possibly banning me lol, and I would feel under a little bit more pressure knowing someone superior is watching.

      Would be nice to have my first ever fan lol, so thanks for being nice...but maybe in a few months time when I'm more confident with my game ! :)
