Pokerstars VIP Bash Overlays

Recommended Posts

Just seen this tweet from Pokerstars

PokerStarsVIP: The 2,000 FPP satellites to this Saturday's VIP Bash have been overlaying like crazy! Next one runs in about two hours (779852507).
From what I can see, they're guaranteeing 5 seats worth 25,000 VPPs each (125,000 FPP prize pool) and have a buy in of 2,000 FPPs. They seem to be getting about 50 runners (50 x 2,000 VPPs = 100,000 VPPs) - so an overlay of about 25%. 2,000 FPP Sat (5 x 25,000 Seats Gtd) running daily at 17:00, 20:00 and 23:00 BST I would imagine the Final (Saturday 31st August 19:30 BST) would have a MASSIVE overlay. They guarantee 100 x WCOOP Main Event Tickets, worth $5,200 each (total prize pool is $520,000 or 32,500,000 FPPs). Buy in is not cheap (25,000 FPPs is worth about $400), but that is largely why the overlay in the final would, I imagine be so large (and if you want to play, why it could be worth hitting the sats, especially the sats with overlays). To have no overlay, the final needs 1,300 entries. There are currently 111 entries. The 2,000 FPP sats will add 60 entries The 5,000 FPP sat will add 25 entries. So that's 196 entries so far plus direct buy ins.

Re: Pokerstars VIP Bash Overlays

It looks from the lobby as though you need to be at least Silver Star to take advantage of this (which I'm not :sad).
Sorry - I never noticed that :( No good for you either :p, but maybe others ;) - there's a freeroll at 17:15 BST for GoldStar and up with a 50,000 VPP prize pool (worth $800). Just 401 entries so far. Another very good value game by the looks of it!! There's a 5,000 FPP sat at 18:00 BST with 200 x 25,000 seats guaranteed (5,000,000 FPP prize pool) - just 374 entries so far!!. This is silverstar+
