Oh dear. Read the post above it dude. (i'll write it bigger for you)
If you buy into a satellite for cash then unregister, you get tourney dollars (which is essentially cash). If you buy in for points and unregister, you get a tournament ticket for the value of the tournament you are playing towards, not a points equivalent.
You see, you used to be able to unregister from the daily dollar for 200 points, meaning people could run up huge amounts of points without actually playing for any cash. Full Tilt have stopped this by only paying out in tickets or tourney dollars.
So if you buy into the 50 point daily dollar game, instead of unregistering for 200 points, you now get a $1 ticket to use whenever you like, buy ONLY in a $1 game, not as partial funds (as you can with tourney dollars).
Kmixer asked what if you enter the 5 point Little Big satellite and unregister. The answer (as I said) is that you get a $2 tourney ticket. Not tourney dollars.
