No, not really. Rather have the highest value than purposely lose for less. Not sure I have ever had a tournament type that was setup that way. Played satellite that interest me, because of the tickets.
"Luck comes and goes but knowledge stays forever."
I have tried but I can't remember if I succeeded. It would have probably been in a situation where I would not have been able to play in the target tourney or the money was almost what the ticket would be worth.
I often intend to get money instead of a ticket when that ticket is not the ticket to be able to use in a money tournament immediately. You have to play many satellite tournaments to get the final ticket. So, I just try to get money if possible instead of spending much time to get the final ticket.
VENOM @ ACR, for example. Make it, get ticket to get to step 3, I believe. If you finish 23, or some other random place, you win 42 cents. I already had the step 3 ticket, so I was going for 23rd place.
summary, I didn't make 23rd, it was much harder to thread the needle, place-wise, than to make the top of the ladder. If I didn't already have the ticket, I play for the ticket. Who wants pennies, when they can win $$ with the next step ticket?
Normally not, I play low levels, I have been in that situation and many times I have to see that many go all in to keep the money, I always prefer the entrance, if they were high levels, I would think, but in the same way many go all inthe situation depends but they go all in when almost the ticket accumulates and those situations are what I have lived
it depends. with the ticket, am i forced to play the $111 mtt? or can i use the t$ to buy into smaller games? if it's the latter, then i'll happily take the ticket.
but if i'm forced to play the $111 mtt, i'd rather go for the $27.50 in cash because that's a decent number of buy-ins at the microstakes. i'd rather be able to play multiple smaller buy-ins mtts than one large buy-in mtt.
I never enter tournament prizes where tickets are offered if I am looking for the cash to have. I do not really understand the reasoning behind doing this because you are purposely going out of you way to not get the full value for your play, time, and effort.
I would recommend only playing cash prize tournaments so that your value is consistent through your time in tournaments.
I have never actually done that yet but have considered and would consider it again. The cash is a sure thing, tickets on the other hand are for a larger prize but you still have to work in another tournament and it may not pan out the way you hope. Maybe you won't have time to play that particular tournament. Depends are your own circumstances.
When sitting on the bubble and far away for any leaders I have gone all in to try to get the money VS the ticket being offered. Seems a lot of times the money is close the ticket price. With the money I can play at cash tables and hopefully make more from it ))))))
I’ve done this before. I’d personally rather have the money in hand then to have to play a particular tournament. I never play in these type of tournaments for this reason, my play time is limited so unless the ticket is say for any $10 tournament as opposed to a specific tournament, I’d rather take the cash.
I have done this several times. Another conversation is that this is not always the case.
The most memorable event I had was the last stage (I don't remember the 3rd or 4th stage) for a $ 215 (possibly more expensive) buy-in tournament. And I tried to get knocked out fourth and get the money, but I went further and in the main tournament I was left without ITM, knocking out on the bubble.
Those who have invested little in the step-by-step stage of the game on tickets and, they value money very much and, he managed to reach a high price for a ticket, but there is a choice either an expensive ticket or money, but at a cost less than a ticket, it is better to take money. After all, you are not sure that you will be lucky and you will again get into the prizes. I would do it like that.
If I can recall correctly there was a step 3 or step 4 in ACR the Venom tournament?!The ticket was the next step but the monetary prize was very tempting compared to my bankroll. It is risky but if you have zero interest to play the target tournament or if it is full of professionals?I don't know.
I didn't even try to take the cash instead of the ticket but I would be OK with that, I proceed to the next step but unfortunately I didn't make it further.
Hi everyone.Well, I played some of those games on Party Poker.I had a free $5 ticket to play the next step to qualify for a live event.I did prefer the money because it was a good cash(almost $30) and the ticket was about $44, and also because I had no time to play the next step .That was the one I remember the most but I won more money using my free tickets.
Hi, usually, yes, I try to get cash and not a ticket, because if I get a ticket I will have to play hard again and hope for good luck, and if there is an opportunity to take the money right away why not.
