Is it worth sitting out now?
I've played in this one.
THe thing is, 'most likely' in the spot you were in here ^, chips gained aren't worth anywhere near the same value as 'chips lost' (due to it being a satellite). I'll often see newer satellite players making a common mistake - - still playing pots like there's some benefit to getting an even BIGGER stack (like they're getting paid more for 5th than they would be for 85th) while they're already sitting with a good one & it's likely unecessary.
I'm sure many others have made similiar mistakes in satellite play... I know I have.
sorry to hear that you didn't win the ticket (PS, last time I played it, I got it in w AQ vs AA... & didn't have a great stack.. but definitely not hurting either & was vs. a huge fish who was playing ~60% vpip)
You can actually sup. satty to that 50seat guar. starting off at 30cents. (I go the $3r/a route, 10seat guar.)
