Don't get me wrong - I think it's cool that you're doing this, BUT...in reality if you are trying to qualify for just a $1, then once you lose the $10 Stage 1 Qualifier, you should step back down to the $1 Sub Qualifier.
This is how I'm trying to do it, although this will probably be my last shot.So far, after 4 or 5 losses in the $1, I lucked my way through one.I then meant to play the regular $10 one, but accidentally went to a Turbo one, which I hate. I managed to luck into 2nd place for another $10 ticket + $7. So far, I'm ahead of the game by a couple bucks plus the ticket. Three more steps and I'm on my way to Spain.I just hate the Turbos so much I can't justify starting over at $1, and seeing as the odds of getting to real money is so low, the $10 ones hardly seem justifiable based on my skill.

That's quite an achievement by Big Mike! I got fed up after 2 $1 turbos, and decided to just try and qualify from the $10. I like the increasing stack sizes in higher stages, nice idea that.First time round I'm going to try the Sit and Go route, then I might have a go at the Multi-Tables.Results so far:SubQualifier : 2nd : -$1.10Subqualifier : 3rd : -$1.10Stage 1 : 1st : +$63Stage 2: 1st : +$527Stage 3 : 1st : +$4600Cost : $12.20. Profit : $5187.80Job Done.

ty Ecclesbury :D Good luck to you as well! Believe me...I'm donkified in this tourney comin' up...quite a few talented FCP players are going to make it in, like Clint and Vatche and CoinFlipper, and KidPoker himself...I'm just a donator. :club: But it was a nice run to win I'll tell you what. Waking the whole house up as I march my *** up and down the house yelling FCP! FCP! FCP! after taking it down must have been hilarious to see. :D I look forward to all the tourneys involved with this ticket...both freerolls AND the big one in (now)November.Good luck to all B)

If you use the downloadable(is that a word) client, and have statistics on...you should be able to get an idea of what tourneys you've been in to qualify. I don't know how far it goes back.Or...if you ask real nice and send him a bribe...InfoBob might be able to hook ya up. B)
