      Hi

      I was just wondering wat the deal is with the 10k depositors freeroll on the 11th.
      As was already said in the comments of the related anouncement, the registration is open but we can't register.
      I myself deposited @ 09/07/2011 08:02 EST and seeing the amount of people who opted in in the opt-in thread,
      lots of people made a valid deposit yet at this exact moment only 27 people are registered for the tourny.
      I guess the rest of us still keep getting the 'not invited' error when trying to register.

      Can we get an ETA as to when or if we will be able to register?

      Hi guys,

      As it is the weekend, we ask you for your patience in this matter. Unfortunately for reasons beyond our control the freeroll could not take place this weekend.

      Rest assured, the tournament will be rescheduled and when we have that information we will broadcast throught the news section.

      As always, we thank you and appreciate your patience,


      Gary

      Hi,

      Due to technical issues the $10,000 depositors freeroll at PartyPoker which also offers a €5,500 WPT Malta package, needs to be postponed.

      The new date for the freeroll will be either Monday, September 12 or Tuesday, September 13 - we will announce further details as soon as possible in this news article.

      As previously announced, PokerStrategists that made a deposit until September 9 at 03:59 GMT are eligible to play.

      PartyPoker and PokerStrategy.com would like to apologize for the inconvenience.

      waw, looks like this is turning into a real soap.
      For the record, just checked all lobbies @ party, still no tourny to be found...

      If I were you (PS.com), i'd have a hefty word with you party poker rep (read: pull him through the phone) since this mess up is making PS.com look pretty bad.
      Prolly best to ask them to up the value of the freeroll (20k anyone?) when/if they ever succeed setting it up ;)

      ps: This whole story really makes me wonder how bad the underlying systems are @ party if the can't manage to set up 1 single tourny. From a technical point of view, it really should take only a few seconds punching in the parameters for the tourny and then 1 simple SQL update in their database to invite the eligable players.

      I mean for a few of us who are constantly reading updates it could even be a very good thing since it'll have much less participants than supposed. But all in all pretty confusing and bad organization...
