    Going to track here.

    Actually a nice starting stack and a lot of play for the satellites, even at 5 dollars. Today they only have a 5 and 20 but starting tomorrow the full satellite schedule begins.

    Essentially it goes 5,20,100,500 each Sunday until night June 12. The small satellites are every day the 100s run every other day and both Saturday and Sunday.

    Normally I'm not a fan of satellites, but with the freeroll thrown in that seems like good value. Hopefully the games are soft. GL!

    Yeah I would play that Tuesday but a little too high for my bankroll. I have played probably every other regular tournament they offer at least once.

    They are. Especially the satellites. This is the softest seat for the PA sites.

    Starting here at 330 the first 5 dollar one. I will reenter probably until about 50 big blinds. You start with 30k chips and 150/300 blinds and the blind levels are 5,6,8 minutes in respect to the 5,20,100 buyin. Not sure the structure for the 500s because they arenít in the lobby yet.

    Still in low but will be close. Not going to enter the 20 no matter what today, think I would be pretty short stacked. Had absolutely nothing in the way of hands so far

    Got the bubble payout 15.30

    Had jack shit for cards. Shoved with a2 suited 3bb from the cutoff 5 handed in last place about 1/2 stack of 9th. Both blinds called it got disconnected so I didnít see what happened Iím sure I was in bad shape though. Should be able to get some in tomorrow night, Tuesday probably not at all.

    Saw they are doing a $3,500 event with $1m 1st place prize guaranteed as their competition to the WSOP ME

    I'm going to Vegas in June. Will be playing some WSOP events and I qualified for the MSPT $2m GTD online. Should be fun.

    Will also certainly be firing some high stakes cash and likely some high stakes blackjack, too.

    Yeah all I have seen is this satellite online schedule. Not sure what the structure is for the 3500 main event or the last satellite of 500. The first 500 satellite is Sunday night.

    Quick tangent: you can play pretty tight in these at the end when 20/25 percent of the field is moving on. I try to ďplay pokerĒ early, then I only take chances when I have too. The key is knowing when you have to maybe shove with a marginal hand. I folded quite a few hands yesterday I would have went with in a typical tournament.

    Still in. 97 left. Was a huge field no doubt everyone used the freebie. Gonna be close, 68 make it. Won a couple big hands early and then alternating wins and losses

    Got thru. Min raised the blinds a couple times, that was enough shoved aces preflop and no one called after a player limped.

    The 100 dollar one runs tomorrow at 8, most likely will play that hopefully to get to the main satellite Sunday.

    Yep same exact thing. Maybe Iíll see you there. First try at the 100 dollar one coming now. Interested to see the quality of this one. The 5 and 20 were both very soft.

    Alright 18th out of 59 left. Still lots of open limps wild overbets etc. Right now 25 seats to the last satellite. I guess they have until the break ends to come in. The bubble payout is 12 bucks right now (500 per seat) so may not get another seat added

    Alright, into the 500 on Sunday night. Nothing that interesting really. Just kept getting hands and raising after they limp and that was it.

    Hand that clinched it guy limps UTG I got 10s next to act I just limp as I felt I was in okay shape and didnít want to get trapped button limps (terrible player) small blind completes the big blind check.

    Flop aj10 2 spades I bet half pot button calls turn 5x I have almost the pot and shove they fold. That put me at almost 6x the starting stack with 35 left and I pretty much sat out after.

    Just checked, already giving out a bubble payout 30 minutes before. With about 2 hours of late registering, this could get up there. Also, 3100 right now for 3rd, looks like they arenít going to break the bubble payout into smaller amounts (ex blocks of 1000 then whateverís left)

    Gonna have to wait until at least next week. Got horrible cards. Think I lost every hand except one where I flopped open ended bet the flop and other guy folded. First hand I shoved 44 from the cutoff 13k all in at 6/12 small blind has jj

    Juat busted out the Sunday $500... For some reason I had a free ticket to the $20, won a ticket easily to the $100 (there were so many people who registered for the $20 and did not show up lol), then made it to the $500 with 1 bb left. These are very soft, never really got any momentum in the $500 still made it down to final 48. Will definitely try to play these each Sunday they're offered.

    Same thing except I didnít get as far in the 500 as you.

    Going to try and do the 5 and the 20 after tonight. Iíll update at the end. Wonít be able to play tomorrow unless I can make the 100 today. Going to be busy at baseball.

    Easy peasy. Guys still go at it when they could fold every hand and make it. The guy who got the bubbles bubble went in on 877k with 84 lol. If I canít make the 100 tomorrow then it will have to wait until Thursday as it doesnít run Wednesday night.

    Also, looks like they have a wheel where you spin and get tickets or even the prize now. You do have to play a little. I played the 5 and 20 on mgm and that was enough to get a spin. I got a free 20 dollar ticket on that, so I will use that if I bust here. I know you have to play some because Borgata has the same wheel and it wouldnít let me spin.

    Back to the 500 satellite again for another chance on Sunday night. Was pretty card dead the whole time, but won a big AI race. No idea what the guy was doing. He limped in UTG for 8k I shoved with 88 for about 60k from the button he calls over half his chips with A9o. The level before he limped in 7k and folded to a 30k all in so obviously no idea what heís doing. Anyways, I pretty much could sit out after that.
