Nothing was working today, so decided to try something new
STEPS
I won a step2. played it and won a step3 ($83)

PokerStars Tournament #372923004, No Limit Hold'em

Dear Sandtrap777,

You finished the tournament in 1st place.

You have won an admission ticket to 'Step 2'. This ticket allows you to participate only in a tournament of this type. Tickets are not redeemable for cash or Tournament US Dollars; if you register and then unregister from the tournament, your ticket will be returned

PokerStars Tournament #375627349, No Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $25.00/$2.00 USD
9 players
$0.50 USD added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $225.50 USD

Dear Sandtrap777,

You finished the tournament in 1st place.

You have won an admission ticket to 'Step 3'. This ticket allows you to participate only in a tournament of this type. Tickets are not redeemable for cash or Tournament US Dollars; if you register and then unregister from the tournament, your ticket will be returned.


My question is this:
As anybody reach this step before, I have a choice to play tournaments using this ticket or move up to the next step. Step 3 is almost like a 50/50, first 2 get a step 4 and the other 3 redo a step 3. The risk is that if you finish in the bottom 5, you lose it all. Hehe yes the same could happen in a tournament.
If I reach step 4 ($215), than I could enter the Sunday Million or go for step 5,,,,,What a dilemma
So for those that did dab into the steps, what is the best strategy, when to stop and if so which tournament to play?

Thank you

Last time I played the steps, the only thing you could do with step 3 was to play it. I've won maybe four or five step fours. Used all of them for $215 tourneys. All but one of those I sold half interest to a buddy so I ended up with $107.50 and the 50% of my $215 tourney action.

Once, I bounced back to step three five times before I bagged the $215 seat. The VPPs were tasty.

On a side note, you can use your FPPs to buy steps tickets. I think that is why you see so many Supernovas in them (or did at the time I played).

Your title choice has New kids on the Block running through my head now.

Way funny.

I was in the clear, but now, because of your post I'm humming it too.

nice job Sand

I tend to save them for a run at the WSOP as i think last year step 6 paid 3 spots for a 9 man
Package to 1st
$3500 to 2nd
$2k to 3rd


One thing i have notice is at the step 4 and up you see alot of the same players "Regs" in them

Best of luck with with ever choice you make
