  • FPP challenge!

    I would like to present a different challenge that costs you nothing directly. There is a very good value satty that costs 210 fpp's and it is a sng max 20 players. Top 6 are given an $11 ticket.
    My challenge to you is to take 25 buy ins and win as many tickets or bust as you can. At bronze VIP status you could cash these in for $50 cash guaranteed but I am thinking that you can do much better by taking this challenge.
    If you cash these at a 20% clip you will come out ahead. This of course assumes that you will unreg for them and take the cash. I'm thinking that we can cash them at a better rate than 20% and therfore unreg most and play one of the Sunday Storm's and who knows right!

    It's okay to do a smaller buy in folks say 25 x 20 fpp's

        This challenge seems like really good idea! I hope you guys do well.

        chuckkky, they are in the Sit & Go section of the Main Lobby ☞ Satellite ☞ FPP

        What would your strategy be with two 10 seat tables? Play it like back to back Fifthy50s?

          Thanks Tonk
          I had my filter set to block tables with 10 players.

          I never really have a plan when I play.
          But I would play pretty tight at the start and then try and steal as much as possible

            I'm not familiar with the 10 seat games but I believe one player gets a ticket so it may not be the best value for your fpp's. The 20 player game with 6 players winning a seat is good value and in fact Sandtrap777 has posted a thread ( which I was too lazy to look for ) and he suggests some sattys that are good value for your fpp's as well.

It's really wouldn't be the ideal scenario for someone to learn just because another more experienced player thought it was a good idea. umbup:
              Thank you for your 2 cents Stuart. Can you please share with the community how you spew your fpp's! I'm not sure how hard they are to come by as I simply load a game and play and after I am done the game I get them win, lose or draw! Please do explain what you meant. Giddy Up!

                        1 from 1 umbup: I was almost gone early. I was shoved on in the BB by the SB 4 times in a row (not always the same player) The 4th time I had AT suited and called he had K6 os and hit a King on the river. the very next hand I got dealt K4os and shoved on the BB after it was folded to me, and won with King high after he called with Qxos, shoved again with A7os and sucked out on AT. Doubled up with AK against AT, then I just folded to my ticket PokerStars Tournament #549032438, No Limit Hold'em Super Satellite Buy-In: 210 FPP 20 players Total Prize Pool: 4200 FPP Target Tournament #569010003 6 tickets to the target tournament Tournament started 2012/04/19 21:26:19 AEST [2012/04/19 7:26:19 ET] Dear chuckkky, You finished the tournament in 1st place.

                            Thanks Cowboy, Late on there is a lot of SB shoving when its folded to them, especially when the SB and BB have similar stack sizes. I will give it another go tomorrow. It seems like a fun Sattyumbup:

                              Played 3 more, without a win.
                              Still think it's worth a few more attempts yet.
