    Is this an attractive proposition for players? Ok, there will be a large prize pool and it's cheap.

    'Plus the chance to be part of something truly special' Gee thanks! Me thinks getting in the Guinness Book World Records is going to mean much more to PS than anyone playing in it.

    Not moaning, just thinking it's not a very well thought through promo. They want people to play to get the record. Not sure why people would want to play.

    Having said all that, will I play it? Not sure. Might go for the lottery instead

        Wow! I'm impressed! PS really are listening. Look what they did after reading my post

        In addition, the top-5 finishing players in the World Record Tournament in the UK & Ireland will each be awarded a $215 ticket to play the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million, with a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000,000! The highest finishers in places 6-100 meanwhile will each win a Sunday Storm ticket worth $11.

        Ok, you got me, I'm in now.

              Might be for some players. For me It's a close call BTW Please note the Million and Storm ticket promo I posted above is for UK and Ireland players. Guess they'll be doing similar stuff for others.

                $215 more for finishing in the top 5 convinced you that it was now worth playing?

                        It's the top 5 UK players for the $215 and top 100 for Storm ticket. Easy

                          Gotcha umbup: I'm not sure I'm clear about this bit though.................... "In addition, the top-5 finishing players in the World Record Tournament in the UK & Ireland will each be awarded a $215 ticket to play the 10th Anniversary Sunday Million, with a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000,000!

Now does that mean 100 Brits are going to get something extra, or do you actually have to finish in the top 100? I'm assuming it's 100 of us, but lawyers make fortunes arguing over the meaning of sentences like that

                            Speaking of, they're also giving away tickets to social media users...

                              Not sure either.

                              I'll check with my solicitor. We don't have lawyers over here mate.

                              You're obviously not getting yourself In enough trouble
