First night: 210 FPP sats to Sunday 200k

Tuesday, December 9, 2008 10:51 | Filled in poker

I tried four of these last night, cashing in two.  They seat 20 players and award 6 seats.  Each seat is worth 11 T$.  This particular sat is worth about $3.39 at the concierge rate, so you need to cash in about a third of them to make the concierge rate.  I cashed in half, which seemed fairly sustainable.  One of the ones I busted in was one where I was all-in preflop on the first level with AA against Q7o.  Of course, the board came Q7x on the flop and I didn’t catch up.  So, the quality of play is somewhat poor.

The downside of playing this particular sat is that the upside is also quite limited.  You cannot possibly win more than 11 T$ on any individual sat.  If you were able to cash in 67% of the sats you entered (which is likely impossible, even as weak as the fields are), the most I could grind out playing these is about $5,000.  Although that would be a nice upgrade from the $1,100 I would get from the concierge, that doesn’t have the excitement of the bigger field tourneys which potentially offer much bigger paydays.  Also, I’d have to play 330 of these and they don’t run often enough to multi-table, so It would likely take me three or four months and I don’t have that much patience.

They are turbos and have a very flat payout, so they run very quickly.  I might use them when I have only a short while to play, but I don’t think they will be my main FPP purchase.

    For a bigger score, there is that “turbo takedown”. That costs 5,000 FPPs but has a huge prize pool.

    So are you not playing any games with the cash (or T$) you earn? Are you just going to try to see how much you can build? Or, are you going to get cash then use that for other tourneys or SNGs?

    Good luck either way.

    I was looking at the Turbo Takedown. I just wish it ran more often. I haven’t played with the T$ yet, but I think I’m going to have to at some point unless I’m willing to focus on the 70/210 FPP sats.

    I really didn’t have a very organized plan. I’m somewhat bored with ring game limit poker, so I decided I’m going to just play tourneys for a while and see what happens.
