        u can sell T$ on many sites like parttimepoker- and get a great return - or just use the tourney $ to play in ANY tourney- if ure a cash player- set up an account at PTP and follow the prompts to sell --- gratz and gl

          I have not played it. I will one day.

          Though I am sure that it is tempting for you to play, consider this...

          Bankroll management!!!!

          Take the $215.00.

          According to the "Fergulator" which is a nifty little program that uses the rules that Chris Ferguson used for his Zero to 10k Challenge...

          With a bankroll of 215.00 you may do the following:

          You may buy into a cash table game for $10.75 and you must leave when you have $22.69. you may stay until you lose the 10.75 but why? find another table.

          As for multi table tourneys you may buy into anything up to $4.30 and a SnG for up to $10.75.

          For you to legitimately buy into the Sunday Million your bankroll, according to the Fergulator should be:


          There are many tourneys that you should consider that are Gaurantees, look for the ones that have 3000 chips and 15 minute blinds. They start at one dollar and go up.

          Yes it is very tempting to take a shot. Far better to use proper bankrollmanagement and one day you will have a shot.

          Google "the fergulator" download it and start using it. You have come into a a nice windfall and now have a nice bankroll. It would be a shame to blow it all in one shot, or mismanage it and lose it all?

          Just my two cents worth.

              you have to arrange a deal with someone and then have support facilitae the transfer.

              players are unable to trade $T amongst themselves but support can arrange it securely and safely.

              find someone that wants to buy them... not a dollar a time (but someone that actually afford at least half or more?) and both of you can contact support.

              it can be done.

                Last time I checked, the pros were subject to the same laws of random chance as the rest of us. If I won such an opportunity, I would play the game. If nothing else, playing that one game will guarantee your status as active for the followning month at zero cost. Tell me you wouldn't like that. Sure, it will be difficult, but the alternative, running, just isn't in the old hedgehog's blood.

                Though I do admit the $T are tempting. Could make several runs at a Battle of the Planets challenge.

                Either way, congrats on winning the Sunday Warm-up game.
