PokerStars Promo - Million Dollar Men

The final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event has been rescheduled to Nov 9-10. Several months after the 9 players reached the final table. They have their reasons which I don't really want to talk about right now.

What I am going to talk about is the promotion that PokerStars is having which includes 6 out of the 9 players in the final table. The 6 players are representing PokerStars in the WSOP Main Event tournament. Each of them are guaranteed $900,670 and they all have the chance to win first place and $9,119,517. Which is why they're called the Million Dollar Men. (Except if they finished 9th; they'd be a thousand-aire)

The main selling point of this promo is that 3 lucky online players will get the chance to play a single-table tournament against these people.

1st level - freeroll tournaments daily from Sep 27 to Oct 17 at 11:10, 14:10, 17:10, 20:10 and 23:10 eastern time. Top 300 players advance to the weekly final.

2nd level - tournaments will be on Oct 4, 11 and 18 at 15:10 eastern time. Top 1000 players advance to the finals and $15, 1001st to 2000th get $10, and 2001st to 3000th get $5.

3rd level - tournament will be on Oct 25 at 15:10 eastern time. Top 3 of this tournament will play against the Million Dollar Men in an STT. But everyone from 4th to 1000th places will get some cash prizes as well.

Main Event - STT tournament will be on Nov 1 at 15:10 eastern time. 1st place gets $100,000, 2nd $50,000, 3rd $25,000 and the rest of the table gets $10,000.

I've been playing the freerolls and the best finish I had was 700+ out of 15000 registrants. I'm still trying to get that 2nd level seat.

There are other promotions in PokerStars which include the Million Dollar Men but the freerolls are what I'm interested in. Actually, it's the only promotion I can join. If you're interested in reading about the details for these promotions, please visit the PokerStars website.
