Being fairly new to pokerstars I watched a video that said using T$ (tournament dollars) was fairly important for taking shots to building a bankroll.

I know that to get T$ you have to win a satellite and then unregister from the event.

1) Can someone give me a specific satellite that I can play where if I win I can unregister for T$

2) Do the satellites cost anything or do they require a certain amount of FPP to play in?

3) I have never seen a tournament that requires T$ to register in. What tournaments can I play in using only T$?

Hope this isn't too much or any omg is he really asking this kind of questions

Hi frost, tourney dollars can be used in any game besides cash tables. You need to have fpps to play satties and unreg.Tourney dollars are more or less like cash. hope this helps HAPPY

You can play in any of the fpp satellites, depending on the no' of fpps you have.

They cost different amounts of fpp buyin, so you will have to select only those satellites that are within you fpp range.

Should you win and convert your win to $T, you can use them for any tournament with a buyin within the value of your $T's.
There are no tournaments specifically for $T.

I hope that answers your questions , if not please post back here

They basically act like real money, so say you have $1 T money and you enter a HU $1.50 SNG it will use your $1 tourney money and 50 cents from your bankroll. You can also convert T$ in to cash but there's a % fee to convert.

As for which satellites to enter i'm not sure, I know that there is one SNG on the weekend that costs 13 fpp to enter with a field of 9 or 10 players and will pay $1T to the first two places.
