Is there a "best" way of using FPPs? (Stellar Rewards are a no-brainer.)

I used to save mine to play the TT, but now they are just piling up. I want to use them to play poker, not buy clothing or other stash.

From my point of view there seem to be three options:
1. Exchange them for Real Money
2250 FPPs buys $25 - This costs 90 FPPS pr dollar

2. Exchange them for Tourney Tickets
There are plenty of ticket options and all cost 63,64 FPPs pr dollar. The $11 Sunday Storm ticket costs 700 FPPs.

3. Play FPP Tourney Satellites
Again plenty of options. Turbo Sat to Sunday Storm costs 210 FPPs, has only 20 players and top 6 get a ticket.

I could spend 630 FPP to play 3 Sats and still be cheaper than buying the 700 PFF tourney ticket directly.

Option 3 playing sats seems the smart way to go. Am I overlooking something?

Hi Roland!

If you can find one a satty that has a weaker field or an overlay (guaranteed seats with not as many players), that is definitely not a bad option.

I've blown quite a few FPPs trying to get a Sunday Million ticket. No tickets, but I did win 1200 more FPPs LOL!

However, I just binked a Sunday Million ticket in the 1.65R tourney
(1 buy in, 1 add on and no rebuys)! Nice profit for a three buck investment
