It's now getting interesting at the Stars $100K Sunday tournament. We're only 36 players from the money (top 3k), and on second break.

I'm in the top ~12% with double the average stack, so I can't complain :thumbsup:

The party's on me during our trip to Vegas if I win this $20k :p

edit: This has got to suck :eek: I found it odd that someone had a stack of $1. Stars is checking into the possibility of dumping.

Oh well...there's always another day...:thumbsup:

Yep, and only $10+1 for a chance of winning $20K, it's well worth it. The only thing is wading through all the donks early on. Even though it's not a rebuy+addon, there's always 20,000 players entered.

But anyways, I've already almost tripled up at .5/1 PLO. :notworthy

I've been running so bad lately, this is welcomed.

Thanks...it's been a good day. Time for a nap...us old people need that, you know! :thumbsup:

What makes it an even better day is the fact that if I hadn't sat down at 10 minutes prior to the tournament to watch the History Channel's special on the history of gambling, I would have forgotten about the tourney altogether. I'm just glad for my DVR :D

WTG WB! Hey I entered a $2+.20 at PokerStars and won >US$300. Wasn't even a year ago. Luckest cards I ever saw! I musta finished around 20-30th, maybe. Could it have been as low as 80th? Top 180 got paid, I know that so maybe you can tell me! lol
I was ranked in top 20 of the top 100 for 2 hrs! 5,000 or so entrants. Didnt take as long as I thought, either. 'Bout 3-4 hrs to me. Hard to believe it's the same game that sucks so hard when the cards are s**t!

Regarding the $1 stack SS above, it was just a bizarre coincidence, not chip dumping.

This is why PokerStars is a cut above the rest. Absolute & UltimateBet should take lessons! The following is a response from Stars, around 3 hours after my initial request for an inquiry.

Thank you again for your email. I have reviewed this player and the
situation. As it turns out, xxxx had 3591 chips to start a hand
against an opponent with 3590 chips. They both made full houses with xxxx getting rivered to cost him/her all but one chip.

Thank you for giving us the chance to review this situation. As you know,
we take the integrity of our games very seriously and welcome every
opportunity to ensure that they are played fairly.

Poker stars .com - I think .net is just for free play. I live in Florida I have no problems depositing and playing.

I think the satellite games to the Sunday million and Sunday 100 grand are great. I'm fairly new to poker and winning a 2.20 tourney to get to the big ones I feel I already won. So far I've only paid full price to the Sunday 100 grand once.:)
