      hi ingrid - I can't find the $10K on my lobby - is it only being listed when reg'n opens on 16th, or am I missing something?
      (I depositted when i opened the acct and have satisfied the raked hand requirement)
      thanks in advance

      Hi sherriffatman,

      The registration opened on the 1st of September and the screen shot was taken on the 6th of September which tells me that the tournament is already up and available.

      Maybe something wrong with your filtering?

      - I know that Your account is tracked :)
      - I do not know if you deposited or raked one hand

      Therefore I can only advise you to please contact poker room customer support and ask them for further help.

      Let me know how it goes please :)

      The screenshot is of the 2nd tourney which is in the bwin lobby right now, the number 1 tourney isn't there yet.

      It's called a depositors freeroll but no mention of a deposit having to be made, could you clarify if a deposit needs to be made or not please?

      Hi there TakeManies,

      It isn't a depositor freeroll. This is why the name has been changed to PokerStrategy.com 10K freeroll.

      All you need to do is be active and rake at least one hand between between Thursday, September 1 at 00:00 GMT and Thursday, September 14 at 23:59 GMT. :)

      I'll asked the Key account manager to check if the tournament is up already and we'll be back shortly.

      Thanks for looking in to that Ingrid - good job I mentioned it really. (also, thx to Manies for pointing out there are actually two freerolls!)
      I presume I don't need to contact bwin support now?
      Btw, my acct. is tracked through PS: I depositted when I opened the acct and although I haven't been active on the acct. much lately, I played 1 raked hd of stud last night (mon. 12/09) so i should qualify, yes? (will play some NLHE tonight just to be on the safe side)
      I guess I just wait for the reg'n to open and take it from there - bit late being listed though isn't it?
      :s_thumbsup: for the added value tho!!!
      cheers

      Anyone got any bad beat stories (or a story in general) from the $10k freeroll yet? I saw someone busted by 9Ts who flopped quad Ts..not really a bad beat but I thought I'd get things started

      I've ran basic. I squeeze 55 on the BTN to 9BB, original raiser folds, 35BB stack calls. flips over J4s. FU and your full house :s_cool:

      Uh: and lost AJ vs A8o ten hands ago or so vs fish.

      My tournament finished with my big disappointment when I found this A6s from BTN witn less the 10BB

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $4,000(BB) Replayer
      SB ($109,549)
      BB ($75,751)
      UTG ($68,960)
      UTG+1 ($146,066)
      UTG+2 ($31,414)
      MP1 ($63,993)
      MP2 ($50,310)
      MP3 ($34,087)
      CO ($143,418)
      Hero ($38,458)

      Dealt to Hero A:heart: 6:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $38,058 (AI), SB calls $36,058, fold

      FLOP ($84,116) 8:club: J:spade: 9:spade:

      TURN ($84,116) 8:club: J:spade: 9:spade: 7:spade:

      RIVER ($84,116) 8:club: J:spade: 9:spade: 7:spade: 7:diamond:

      Hero shows A:heart: 6:heart:
      (Pre 29%, Flop 14.9%, Turn 14.8%)

      SB shows K:heart: A:spade:
      (Pre 71%, Flop 85.1%, Turn 85.2%)

      SB wins $84,116

      Should I be conservative and wait a better big hand?

      Thank you anyway Pokerstrategy for this great opportunity to feed the bankroll as any $ are not too bad even if my dream was to go a bit up to the "big boy" prize.

      TY :)

      Shoving there was the right play IMO. Your shoving range there is pretty much any 2 cards since you are so short. Plus A6s is probably good there since the blinds would know you are shoving light most of the time there and may call with K/Q high.

      You don't want your stack dwindling down so when you are shoving, it won't be such a small stack that the blind is pretty much committed to call. Also a full orbit is roughly 1/3 of your stack when you consider the antes too so you can't wait too much longer.

      Just my thoughts

      Finished 14th from 890 starters in the GSOP Freeroll.

      Picked up a little free cash (thx PokerStrategy.com love you long time :heart: ), but missed out on one of the 10x added $525 seats. My second effective bubble of the night :facepalm:

      Hopefully still other English Community left in, gl everyone.

      To be perfectly honest as these have a great structure they tend to go on a long time anyway, so I'm guessing the decision was taken to leave them out which is fair in my opinion.

      Hope you still enjoyed them sherriffatman and had fun, keep an eye out for more great PokerStrategy.com promotions and community events as they get announced in the news and forum pages ;)

      Best regards,
