    now doesn't this throw the numbers off? aren't there suppose to be a set amount of qualifiers? now there are 5 A's missing for the toltal number of A seats. Just a suggestion for next time (one i have already stated) Have the last chance events be only 2 of them, and during the busy time like 3pm and 9 pm

      Well, I've played with BigRed on a number of occasions and he/she's a pleasure to play with. I know they've been trying hard to qualify and as far as I can see (which isn't far) they've not broken any rules, but have just used the available opportunities. Next year, who knows, it might be a different set-up, but right now.............

      the very best of luck on Saturday to BigRed and to everyone else who's made it (by whatever means) to The BIG ONE 11

        im not knocking any players
        all im saying is i think the last chance events could have been organised a bit better
        to award a b to the one and only player is stupid
        but fair play to anyone who takes advantage of this huge mistake
        why qualify for a round 2 by winning leagues and then finishing in top 20 out of 200+ when you can wait until a few days before and get one just for turning up

          We do so love to flog dead horses :!:

          In another thread Mark has acknowledge the shortcomings of theses Last Chance events. However, to change them at this late date is impossible. I am sure a better system will be used next year. Unless all of this complaining makes Mark decide to forego hosting of 'The Big One III".

            Would you play this bluff from UTG, middle position or only from the button in an uncalled pot?

            Sorry, Joe, couldnt resist. But isnt it interesting how poker skills are used inherently throughout our lives?

              It depends on table dymanics. If you were in the BB I'd play it EVEN from UTG!!!!

                      :lol: I knew if I used all the skills I have learned at school, that it would be possible to get at least a "B" qualification.

                          But Clash of the Titans had better looking cheerleaders!!

                          OK, now that i've gotten started: It was obvious from the
                          beginning of this promotion that ANY SCHOOL MEMBER
                          WHO WANTED TO could find their way into TBO2. Now,
                          I'm not the smartest bear in the circus and I figured this
                          out on first read. it's a mystery to me how some of you
                          who are way smarter than I am can start complaining at
                          this late date. Did you really miss that at the beginning?

                            I was there to cheer you on Huk. I was just silent. Didn't think any more distractions would be good for your concentration.

                            As it was you had the whole school there rooting for ya!! Not that we don't like depraved..we just know you better!!

                            Anyway, Congratulations on your win at Foxwoods and have a nice holiday.
