$215 NLHE - $350,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool

Every Sunday on PokerStars, they hold a $215.00 buy in tournament. It used to be a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000, but due to overwhelming popularity the pool has grown to $350k, usually much higher.

On average the top 135 places pay. Nice way to start of the week.

I have decided that I want to play in the event tomorrow, so I am dedicating some time today towards winning an entry through all the satellites available. (I am too cheap to just shell out $215 in one shot!)

First attempt starts right now, at a 4-table, 27 player SNG. First place wins an entry chip, all other places win - absolutely nothing!
