  • would I be better cashing in ?

    I just spent 2fpp's on a hyper turbo 6 max satty to the Sunday Storm.

    Would I be better cashing the ticket for T$11 , or would I be better off playing ?

    Bearing in mind I am a rubbish player.

      HI Bill! Does an $11 tourney fit into good bankroll management? If so, go for it. If not, you have the choice of taking a shot or playing multiple tourneys that are within good bankroll management. If I'd never played one of them before, wouldn't have a problem taking a shot. If I had, then I'd most likely cash in for tourney $$ and playing multiple games that I could get a +ROI on that were within my bankroll. Either way... good luck!umbup: John (JWK24)

        Am I doing my sums wrong, or does that make an FPP worth almost a dollar ?

            Your sums are definitely wrong D'man I entered the tourney for 2 FPP ( which was a rebuy as soon as I entered ) ( Starting chips 300 )

            I ended the tourney as chip leader, three places got a ticket.

            I didn't rebuy after the initial and I didn't add on, so each FPP earned me T$5.50

            But as to actual worth, I don't know. The way my luck ran in that game I needn't have made the initial rebuy so in principle they could be worth T$11 or more.



            Post script. The tickets for the Sunday Storm were issued at the rate of 1 entry per 700 fpps in the prize pool
            which makes each fpp worth $0.01.57c in this particular case.

              IF you have 700 FPP's to burn of course Bill. Nice bink on getting $11 T-dollars for 2 FPP's. I agree with what JW said...if it's a good play within your BR then go for it. If not take the T dollars and play them in games that fit your BR parameter. BTW no one I know of would call you a rubbish player. umbup: Good Luck,better decisions.

                That sounds about right Bob... just kidding topcat. They used to be a little less than 70/USD so 700 for each ticket is close. The rate has changed some. I agree, take the money and run...rinse and repeat. umbup:

                  I love the Sunday Storm so I'd play it personally. Not super hard to get ITM. That said, if playing an $11 tourny is above your current level, the most logical thing to do would be to take the tourny $.

                    Don't know why, but I read your original post as "6 man SNG"

                    I was gonna be playing them all day tomorrow
