PokerStars Mega Satellite Allows Another 252 Players to Enter the WSOP Main Event

I have already informed you about the WSOP Main Event ticket frenzy at PokerStars, which was a $370 buy-in mega satellite, organized last Sunday.

WSOP 2010

After seven hours of play, 281 players still had chips and the line-up included quite a few famous players, such as Team PokerStars Pros Jude "j.thaddeus" Ainsworth, Chris "Money800" Moneymaker, Veronica "Princesa" Dabul, Randy "nanonoko" Lew, Dusty "Leatherass9" Schmidt, Martin AAbenjaminAA" Hruby, Marcello Del Grosso, Grayson "spacegravy" Physioc, Ruben "rubenrtv" Visser, Martin "Goral" Horecki, Thierry "BOWPOWER" van den Berg, Raymond Wu, Julian Thew, Martha "marene" Herrera, Steven Paul, Grzegorz "Da Warsaw" Mikielewicz, Richard Toth, Tom McEvoy, Jorge Arias and Gualter Salles, but none of them managed to satellite their way to the Main Event.

280th place was the first one to provide some money back, $160, to be precise. 279th to 253th managed to get their buy-in back for eight hours of play, while 252nd to 1st were left praising God and starting packing for Vegas.

Congratulations to all the winners!
