How to turn 20FPP to $28.30

By: Ormosity1 @ 16:04 (EST) / 303 / Comment ( 0 )

I was going to wait until my next weekly blog to post this up but I was to chuffed so i couldn't help it.

So spent yesterday morning playing so FPP Sats trying to get a move value from them than just cashing in 1000FPP for $10.

So i entered a 10FPP rebuy Sat to the Big $4.40 and took a rebuy straight up (don't know why everyone doesn't do this right away as it puts you well behind from the start). I managed to survive the push-a-thon that ran riot for the first 30mins while the rebuy option was still available and cruised through to finish with a ticket to the Big $4.40.

As the Sat was one of the last to run before the Big $4.40 started up i got my seat just before the first break and as the Big $4.40 just runs at your standard blind levels i wasn't to concerned i had missed out on much.

I ran card dead for most of the tournement and was stuck around the 10BB the bulk of the time, shoving when i got the chance and occasionally doubling up only to have the blinds eat away at my stack. Before i knew it the bubble was about to burst and managed to pick up a few blind steals to keep me going.

The bubble burst and i was thinking beauty im ITM for only 20FPP so a min cash will be a nice profit. But know i had to show myself up and run fairly deep finishing 101/7777 for $28.30. I am kicking myself though as the hand i went out on i really shouldn't have pushed all-in on as i had the feeling i was behind.

All in all i can't complain.

Entry Fee - $0.20 (20FPP)

Winnigs - $28.30

Profit - $28.10
