Congrats! Funny, I've probably won 20 tickets, including all but the 2 games you won. The Hubble is brutal. Last one I played was over a year ago, and was 12000 people. So this is a good solid hour or two of total donkfest. I struggle w/NLHE to boot, so never got anywhere but tilt city.

I stopped playing the Astronmer Freerolls once I won a stake, and I haven't been back - so I haven't looked closely enough to be certain, but I imagine the rotation includes every game you win a ticket in from. If I was an expert Badugi player, and I won a ticket at Badugi, but couldn't ever use it to make money playing Badugi, I'd be pretty annoyed.
Nope. Sunday is still just Stud (Hi & HL), Omaha (PL, Limit HL, and maybe NL HL (???)), Limit Holdem. I don't think I've ever seen razz in there, nor do I recall seeing HORSE, which is surprising - but I could be wrong. The other games like 5-card stud, 2-7 single draw, badugi, are recent astronomer additions. So my guess is that Badugi & 2-7 single/triple draw won't be added anytime soon, at least not until their popularity increases. As long as Poker Stars is offering $2k no matter how many sign up, I'm sure they like to see as many tickets as possible jammed in there.

Thanx for the info.
I didn't know it either at first. Played the NLHE and never made it past 1000 left. Would be nice if their congratulatory email mentioned that you can keep them forever. Instead they point to right to Saturday's NLHE :
PokerStars Tournament #140502915, HORSE
Freeroll Super Satellite
Target Tournament #140492038
64 tickets to the target tournament
Tournament started 2009/02/16 5:22:00 ET
You finished the tournament in 46th place.
This qualifies you for a seat in Tournament #140492038. A ticket to this tournament was issued in your name. You can use this ticket to register
. See Tournament #140492038 Lobby for further details.
Almost a little deceptive. Anyway, I got 17 tickets squirrelled away now. Next Sunday, Omaha HL - yippie!!!
