Does anyone know what's happened. Last night I played a $160 WSOP MAIN EVENT Sub - Qualifier. I won a $1050 ticket which the game lobby said was for an entry into the WSOP ME Qualifier but all tourneys for the WSOP main event satellites have now gone.

Does anyone know if there's going to be another $1050 qualifier?

If for any chance they have mistimed the sats I am sure your account will be credited accordingly

Cheers for the reply. I emailed support and someone replied saying they'd forwarded my concern to someone else. It wasn't just my satellite, there was another $160 the previous night as well. Between those two satty's there are 16 people who have won tickets for the $1050 qualifier but have nothing to play. 

Does seem likely that they've mistimed something as you suggest. While I'll be bummed at missing out a shot at the main, getting the $1050 in the account wouldn't be too bad either.

Just an update. They replied today saying the ticket can be used for any $1050 tournament. This isn't great. Then why did the lobby for the qualifier specified that it was specifically to enter the main event satellite and to not play if you already had a main event ticket? I have a screen shot of this which I've sent back to them as proof.

Other thing is that there are currently no $1050 tournaments scheduled within the life time of the ticket!

I don't think they've been deliberatly misleading and think this was an honest mistake but under the circumstances I believe they should credit my account for the value of the ticket. Is this unreasonable? All other satellites specified that you win a ticket which can be used for any tournament of the same value but this one specifically said it was for the main even qualifier. I wouldn't have played this particular tournament if I knew there was no $1050 qualifier. In my reply I asked them to credit my account for the value.

Does anyone here have any contact with anyone at 888 who can help? Am I being unreasonable?

no way are u being unreasonable your a/c should be credited immeadiatley without question and you should be given addititional goodies by way of an apology, support really sucks and their attitude is turning people away from 888 in droves.

Thanks for the reply john, just wanted a sanity check on my reasoning. It's ok thought as there's been a happy ending this morning.  While there hasn't been any further correspondence from them, they have converted the ticket to cash in my account. 

Only problem now, do I have a shot at $5/$10 or is it hookers and blow? Just kidding of course, this gives me a nice boost to the bank roll after being on the wrong side of variance for a while.
