Pokerstars Freeroll to WSOP!!

Might try a bit, since its free anyway, but its damn time consuming. The 1st stage has like 5000 entries, which will take like 8-10 hours? to get to the top 50 for the ticket to the finals.

But the weekly 3 finals is really cool, top 1-3 gets the package!!! a cool $12,500!!!!!!

lol

Round 1 takes is actually quite fast...can finish in ~2hrs.

The Weekly Final (Round 2) seem rather time consuming though.
Start chips : 5000
Blinds : 15min/level

yeah, thanks for letting me know
I just realised that round 1 is like only 5 mins blinds! I was thinking the normal 15 mins structure
plus a lot of inactive players and the players are damn crazy/loose, open shove All In with trash hahahaha

Round 2 yeah, deep stack + 15 mins levels, damn long but worth it la for the 3 WSOP package

do you plan to try for it?

oh man ~ I only realised the freeroll can only try once a week!
the 1st wave most were like full , max 5000 entry
the later ones only like 1000++ entries, easier to go to the weekly finals!

hahaha....realised we can only play one per week after i played my first.

Round 1 is fold or shove-and-pray-you-win, not easy to get to last 50.

Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning or any weekday afternoon (Singapore time), should be a good time to play.
Its end of the week's play = majority has played their share
Weekday afternoon = lesser entries

Weee ~ finally won a ticket !!!
had to survive like over 4 flips to make it to the top 50 man~ took like a little less then 2 hours
The other time i calculated a WSOP stage 2 ticket is probably worth about $20 in value but too bad cannot be sold , LOL

Gonna try stage 2 this weekend morning ^+^
