Any help would be appreciated
Yep, like Nash said, both days will definitely sell out. This year is a little different-in the past they'd give you a card which basically said "Fallsview 1k" on it, and then you'd have to show up the day of the tournament and register for your seat prior to noon. This year they give you a receipt which does list your table and seat, and yet they say you still have to show up the day of to "register", which generally is just filling out a disclaimer and handing it to the people. You can hop over the border and then go to the cashier's cage on the main floor of the casino and buy in at any time. I would advise showing up by 11:30 the day of the tournament if you want to start on time-they're not super efficient.

Re: 2017 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic: February 17-24

I called the Fallsview Poker room
And asked what time the $1100 Started, what time the super satty to the $5 K started, what % win a seat to the $5k, what time does the $5 start,
And I asked if I play another $245 satty to the $1100 how much cash is awarded to me (because I already have a seat won) is it $1100 cash?
She answered "I don't know" or "I honestly don't know" to every question.
Please help

The answers to those questions are in the links I posted in my OP - https://www.fallsviewcasinoresort.com/gaming/listings. Nobody in the Cashier area or poker room could answer my questions, so my friend and I have been asking for the new WPT FPC TD, but we have never been able to talk to him.

Don't forget to take your photo ID and show up early to sign off on the mandatory paperwork required at every WPT event.

Also I just called the Fallsview poker room and asked what % of the field gets paid
He said he thinks 20%
Is that accurate?

The casino employees are so clueless its ridiculous. They always know nothing. I think they should have had a meeting about it or something, so that they can answer basic questions.

Anyone know, based on prior years, how many players come back for day 3 of the 1100? Is it just final table?

Anyone know how often the $245 satties run for the $1,100 WPT event? Specifically weekends, like a Sunday morning/afternoon?

I usually get to play one $245 satellite per day. They will run on Saturday/Sunday after ~3 pm if the $1,100 event hasn't sold out yet. Hopefully, the $125 and $235 will be allowed to keep running as long as there is demand in order to feed the satellites to the $2,500 and $5,000 events.

Re: 2017 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic: February 17-24

So if I show up on a Sunday close to 3 would I have to wait a long time for one to fill? And how long do they last? Couldn't be more than a couple hours no?

Get tickets soon before usual sellouts

As anybody who has played at Fallsview can confirm, you may have to wait for hours for a satellite and cash game. The satellite structures are hyper turbo so they usually only last 1.5 - 2 hours, shorter than your waiting time. If you really want to play the first $245 satellite this Sunday (assuming they're running), you may want to sign up by noon.

Booked my hotel to play the 2.5k, and am coming up Sunday night. Do you think I'll need to register Sunday night or should I be fine to do it Monday morning?

Seriously? Already?
Last year they did alternates, although they were capped at 100. Same situation?
They also waited to release tickets until a day or two before too
