Yes. I am aware of the freeroll tourney as pointed. Thanks, Chris. But I was referring to the tickets issued for that tourney. I should see the ticket under Tournament Tickets. Like when I qualified for the quarterly $1m freeroll, I will see the ticket for that tourney under Tournament Tickets.

If I don't see the ticket there, does that mean I just register the tourney and PS auto-detect? Don't think so right? They will look up for the ticket and if there's no ticket, you can't register.

Aiyo...Perhaps, I am too impatient :lol:

I qualified for the VIP 1M quarterly freeroll but I can't register too.

All u need to do is to take note of the date of registration. The VIP 1M will start registration on 5th Nov 2011. I believe by then you will be able to use your ticket to register.
