I found myself in a 625 FPP satellite for Poker Stars
' Turbo Takedown today. And, as we approached the final table, I sized up the payout.
54 players @ 625 FPP = 6 tickets (valued at 5k each)
7th place receives 3750 FPP (the leftovers)
When I hit the final table, I was in 7th place, and I immediately thought of throwing the game when we hit the bubble to get the guaranteed FPP payout. Since you can't unregister from the Turbo Takedown, I might end up winning the ticket and not cashing. I eventually decided against it, but as luck would have it, ended up going out 7th anyway.
So, the question is, has anyone intentionally dumped out on the bubble to take advantage of the leftover cash or FPPs in a satellite? I assume there's no ethical concerns here, because the tourney is over when you go out, so donking off your chips to someone won't affect the game.
