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!

Giddy Up!

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.

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.

1 from 1
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

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 Satty

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

I checked them out earlier thanks to this thread and caught Chukkky cashing

Didn't see you play a hand but you had a healthy stack and others were doing the shoving so you didn't need to play.

1FPP is roughly equal to 1 cent in the shop so the 700FPP's for an $11 buy in is probably the best you'll get at low stakes (works out at 1.57 cents per 1FPP). Unfortunately if you use 700 points for a Storm ticket then you can't transfer it and you have to play the game but these satellites can be traded for T$ which are as good as cash. You can either sell them for a small loss or just play your normal STT's or MTT's .

The only comparable deal in the shop is $4000 for 250,000FPP's which works out at 1.6cents per FPP.

I'm gonna have a go at these, I've 3,500 FPP's myself.

BTW I get my stats from fpppro.com and as noted above, the games can be found under Sit and Go/ Satellite and just filter by buy in (210FPP's)
