Won the seat, but then...

So, as you might have red in my last post, I was trying to win a sunday million sat so I ould play the UKIPT seat only qualifier.

Anyways, I fired up two double shootouts and a $7 rebuy to the UKIPT $530 qualifier...

A short while later I was deep in the rebuy and hit both final tables of the shootouts! run goot much? :-)

Unfortunately the shootouts were a bit unlucky, losing AK to QQ AIPF and then AK to ATs. meh, whatever because I went and ran like god to take down the $530 qualifier seat! weeeeeeeeee

I then go to register for the "seat only" satellite ($215) and see they have only decided that each package is going to be $1435, $935 for the seat and $500 spends... WTF?? Surely if you say seat only then it should be SEAT ONLY.If you are playing a seat only sat, it obv means you are local to the area so why the fuck would you need $500 spending money???

This meant that instead of 1 in 4 players getting a seat to the event ($935), now only 1 in 7 could get a seat making it harder to qualify and losing value. Sigh.I was really pissed off and decided to unregister from the sat until I had time to think about it a little more.

Still not sure if I am gonna play the satellite. I do want to, but 1 in 7 is quite a tough ask vs a field of very good players. (I saw Bill Ivey and such playing them last night). Guess 'll think on it a bit.

On another note, RTR are running a PLO game tonight for fun, details can be found here:
