Hiya. I'm Kev from Felixstowe in the UK. This is my 1st post.
I nearly won a Vegas package the other day making it into the final 20 of a top 10 payout awarding 10 Vegas packages worth nearly $40,000 each in the pokerstars Power Path, from a free $0.50 ticket I got from rake back.

Has anyone here won a huge package like this from a freeroll or micro satellite? If so, can you tell us your story? I worked out the odds were about 200,000/1 for where I got to. I made it through 4 tournaments then fell at the final hurdle with AA getting outdrawn🥹

I need to hear someone's success story to lighten my mood🥰

I haven't played in Vegas, but 2020 888Live MADRID is in my heart. Won 1st place PokerNews 888Live MADRID Qualifier (888Poker) and $ 1,600 ticket to Madrid.
The MTT itself takes place in two stages: stage 1 of 4 MTT 1000 participants each went to stage 2 only 9 people and at the end 36 participants played 1 ticket the cost of $ 1,600.

The voucher included $ 1000 + $ 350 + $250 (entrance + accommodation cashless $ + $ cash on the road)

Our very own member Chris Robinson won a Platinum Pass to PSPC last year.
If I recall correctly, it wasn't through a satellite but by another promotion.

Welcome to CC Kev (y) This is a great place to be.

Last year I won a satty for a 12.4K package to play in the WPT world championship and had the absolute trip of a lifetime. This year I get to run it back thanks to a cardschat sponsored package, and my wonderful wife for winning it. I'll be starting a new thread for my trip reports shortly. MY success story - well, I'll just let you read all about it from the cardschat interview from last year https://www.cardschat.com/news/wpt-world-championship-stories-1-114773/ which tells how I won a twitter contest for my satellite entry, which I then won for a WPT championship package and followed up by winning another twitter contest to meet and play virtual golf with Phil Ivey!

Props to all satellite players who play satellite to big events. I dont have patience for it. Thought of playing well in one tournament just to get a ticket and then get knocked out, then look back and say i spent time playing two tournaments for nothing, doesnt sit well with me. Thats just me. So i give props to satellite players who play where reward is just an entrance. I rather play a tournament and win money to play higher buyin.
I played $100 tournament, won $900, then played $300 tournament, didnt cash, still walked home with $500. Thats my version of satellite. 😂
