+1 on this, I regularly play the $3.75 Hyper Satellites to the $11 Sunday Storm and then sell the T$ on another poker forum
which I solely use for that purpose. There are other variations of satellite to the Sunday Storm but I prefer the Hyper formats as they help me improve on my shove/fold game and post flop play.
There are also $2.20 Regular Speed 36 person games with 6 people getting tickets to the Sunday Storm.
If you are looking at trying to get a satellite ticket into the Sunday Million you are either going to have to get very lucky on one of the 2x-Hyper-Shootout 36 person games where only one person gets a ticket or increase your bankroll and play the huge $74 6 Person-Hyper Turbos where 2 receive a ticket.
Also- you never want to put your bankroll at risk just because another paycheque is coming, there are lots of guys on this forum who deposited once and that's been the only time (not because they're super good either but because they practice good bankroll management).
