Wow  Thank you so much, just spotted the ticket, planning to play this weekend.  Cannot believe it, just checked again to make sure I am not dreaming.  Well done to Slim and Shonaff.

Ok i see there is a game running 2mo night. Its got a 2 hour late reg period with 1 rebuy option allowed.
Now what do you think is best option for me as i dont realy want to take the rebuy on. Should i register late? Or just play from the of as if it was a freeze out?
I am thinking to start from the begining as it has a 12 minute blind structure with a 5k starting stack.
If i leave it until late reg ends i would only have 10bbs so i will be joining in the early levels if not from the start.
Will both of you be playing in 2mos sat or wait for a later 1? Or have you already played it over the weekend, if so how did it go? And does this sat run every night?

I played over the weekend and went out unfortunately.  I began when the tournament started and did ok for 1.5 hours.  Two players went out with aces on my table,  One player called the all in with KJ unsuited and rivered with a straight. So when I got dealt aces I had a gut feeling it would not end well!  And gut instinct proved to be right for me as well.

I was on the big blind with no callers until it got to the player before the small blind. He raised to 400, so I reraised him. He pushed all in with of course me calling.  He had AK diamonds, flop was two diamonds, 3rd card was a five giving a pair on the flop. I needed an ace for fourth or fifth, nothing on fourth street and river was another small diamond! So I was the third player with aces to get beaten!

i had watched another WSOp game and there were 7 rebuys, so Slim I think you take a chance because some are rebuying, so if you don't intend to rebuy I don't think it really matters, join at the start and STAY LUCKY!  LOL

However I did like the idea of being given a ticket instead of cash for the Blog prize.  Otherwise I would not have paid to play into such a large buy in tournament.

Best of luck

Ok going to   need some tips as its  basically a winner takes the seat and 2 cash prizes, do i just go for it from the start and try build up a stack or just sit and wait for a monster and take it from there?
Was watching the game tonight and picking up a few pointers where some were obviously just trying to go for it early.
Every one seems to be super LAG these days.
