Woah!...Ive been waiting for this for months...

but now tt its here...and ive seen the sattelites on stars...it all seems soooo far fetched....well for the stakes that i will be actually bothered to play wif anyway....

zzzz.....but i mean of course rite....$12500 prize money....be prepared to at least spend a couple of hundreds in buy-ins if ur lucky....

is anybody gonna even seriously try to grind at the sattelites to get thru?

i dont think i will SERIOUSLY try....

maybe once in a while juz try my luck...haaaa....

I fully intend to play the steps when they start

If nothing else, they are fantastic fpp earners.

word to the wise though, the last time i tried the steps for APT, i realised that as the date grew closer to the end, the players got better...so play early!

Steps 1-3 are really hard to miss. Best part is, you can grind them indefinately, earning you tons of fpps.

I hope I can spare some times and some extra FPP, last year i tried some 1000 FPP direct satalites but it seems so hard
like a thousand plus people in the 1000 FPP sat fighting for that 1 package, extreme long shot.
Anyway just wanna try if i can get lucky or not hehehe

Btw I read that when u win , 2.5k spending $$ and 10k entry $$ is deposited into your Pokerstars account.
I heard that last year most players that won the package didnt not attend the WSOP and instead keep the 10k
would u do so too if u won?

10k is too much for me too risk, I'll give up my 8 days hotel and PS goodie bag ^^

definately going if i manage to luck out a seat

I'm never going to be able to persuade myself to spend 10k playing a tournament, but this way, it just seems natural.

it would be damn @#)*@#* hard for me to part with the 10K for an entry.

but if i do win and is going to Vegas, i would bring the money there to play satellites for events with a smaller buy in.

I just put in $7.50 in step 1, super super fishy
I guess step 1-3 is quite fishy
then step 4 ? or maybe 5 onwards then the sharks move in
I thinking of investing $100-200 on steps 1 to try my luck, see can heng heng fight till step 6 or not

Quite fun u know hehehe

I think this year may see more singaporeans at the WSOP?
Last year spotted quite a number of sg ppl in the main event le

i got as far as step 5 in the last apt steps

bought in just once, but never could breach step 5

repeated steps 3 and 4 like 10/20 times though. It was good for the fpps, bad for morale=(


I just got a tic to step 2. Hope to hit step 4 tonight. Statistically I do better on tuesdays, so i'll play more tommorow=)



Don't worry about spending 100-200...you won't get the chance unless you're really unlucky. Good thing about the steps is, there is a certain hedge against bad beats.

yeah ~ you are right
I think steps are really fun and only a small amount is needed but if you really get lucky and go to step 6 ~ wooo hooo

anyway good luck to all qualifying for the wsop

btw full tilt poker is giving away 50 FREE WSOP SEATS

read more at

http://p.fulltiltpoker.com/series-2008-race-main-event

I think its really worth it if u have the extra time, too bad I do not, so i wouldnt be trying for the free seats

^_^ lets go to vegas !

I think it would be best if the $10k cannot be kept, so there will be more entries at the main event
more entries = bigger 1st prize = big winner = more attention = more fish coming into the game as a whole ^^

But on the pokerstars site they already state that the $$ will be deposited into the pokerstars account 10+2.5 K
I'm hoping for a comfirm too ~

will they include the 1k for hotel if u choose not to stay at Palms?

if thats the case, the package would worth 13.5k, turn $7.50 into 13.5k? WOW!

if dun go , cannot get the other 1k
if go, either 8 days hotel at palms or 1k u ownself spend but must collect goodie bag and wear the cap and clothes to gain this benefit

man ~ i just turned my $7.50 step 1 tix into a step 4 $215 tix !!! Now i dun dare to play, i had never play so much in a tournament b4! $215 is a lot man considering i'm just a "student" now. Man do i wish i can just cash out for W$215 , even $200 will be fine for me

Guess i'll try my luck tomorrow, just 2 more steps

btw guys, the steps are really very very soft, step 1-3 is amazing weak
there are guys going all in with 44 against my QQ in level 1 of step 3, LOL

and i read that the satalites gets tougher when nearer to the actual date of the event
cause the rich fishes probably already qualifed or stopped(lose till sianz liao)
so the ratio of sharks are higher ( since if they win again , they get W$ which is fine to them )

so , lets go kill more fishes while its "hot"

Cheers ^^
