Last week I used 400 FP points on a satelite and got in that way, so it didn't cost me anything to get in. This week I played in a $10 rebuy satelite. I rebought once and added on so it cost me $31.00. You can buy in directly for $215.00.
The play is generally pretty good. There are alot of Donks in the satellites and some of them get in but in my experience they are gone way before the money. I like having some donks in the game, it's an easy way to gather chips early if you get some hands. You start with 10,000 chips with 15 blind levels starting at 25/50 so there isn't alot of pressure early which helps the play.
