Is this in the Events tab in PokerStars...where are the qualifiers?
Found them thanks. I will sign up for the Mega Satellite on Stars if I can. I really want to qualify for this online or live.
Does anyone know if any of the $550 mega satellites going on at the Taj have been running at all? Did the Act 1's fill up during the week at all? I am hoping the Friday 8:15 PM will fill up and I can play that and qualify for the main event that way. None ran last weekend while I was there despite my winning my seat in Act 1. It sucked!
Instead they were using the Omaha portion of the 2-way Stud/Omaha sheet!!
Level 12 is 500 SB, 1500 BB. The staff did 700/1500.. okay, not a big deal. When I inquired they could not figure it out. Nor could they find a computer to go to the website to confirm.
But when I came back around 10pm to check out the final 3 tables, it was at level 18, which said 5k/10k blinds (which would be accutate for the 2 way omaha/stud event) however the proper sheet shows level 18 as 4k/8k blinds. They skipped a level!!!
Even worse, after level 18 was over (10 min break) the TV said level 19 was 10k/20k. The sheet has a level in between that (5k/15k).
I spoke with the (elderly) poker room manager and he smilingly told me they would figure it out.. basically he didn't care to make a change.
I then told one of the players still in the event and he ran over to the staff. I didn't see what happened as I drove home after that. I think he was the winner (really tall white guy).
I emailed the poker manager. I hope they resolve this.

found this in my travel's in the wild world of facebook !!!
Under 100. Bout 70. And it's a USPC event. Crazy. This casino is pretty ghetto. Used to be awesome but they really let it go downhill. Either way, I'm here to play my best and take it home
Yesterday at 1:35pm
well maybe someone from the taj poker world and see this ....... and react. oop's i'm sure they have to be aware , wouldn't think?/? no im not going answer that ............
What's th over/under on the field for the main event. Can anyone tell me how many they got last year ?
I was talking to one guy who final tabled a few years back when it was covered by ESPN. He told me that Phil Hellmuth came into town last year and said he would only play if they got 400 runners. They got like 154 if I remember correctly. He got his buy-in back and went and played cash games at the Borgata instead. I am hoping for a big tournout and hopefully I'll be in attendance.
Honestly I'm surprised that they got 154 last year, was it a 10k last year? If so I'm sure they will get more than last year now that it's a 5k and the fact that stars has been running satalites. Btw does any one know how many seats stars has given out already and if someone was to win a seat can you take the cash or is it a must play
