Here is something I do every week. I am usually up early (3AM EST) and once a week I will play a "scheduled" tourney to the $100K Sunday Tourney at poker stars. If you hit the right one, there are usually only 50-80 people playing. There is 1 seat for every $11 into the pot. Play is usually not that great. You only need about 7k to 8K to win a seat. Play tight, make the most of your big hands and your there.
Once you won your seat, I go an unregister from the Sunday tourney. You get $11 in TS$ in your account. I can use that $11 to play any tourney or SnG I want.
I have done that for the last month and only once has it taken me more than once to attempt to qualify. That one took me twice.
Of course you can use it for the $100k, but trying to manuever around 16k to 18k of people, to me is not worth it. I can do better at SnG's

Good Luck.

Thats clever thinking and a good way to work it. Id rather try my luck in the millions though, since all you need is 1 good run of cards, and 1 session of luck for a big payout, id rather that than grinding sng's

I did something similar, only I did it in the 2.20 sng's.
After my first try at the 100K, I think I took the T$11 and used it for something else.

Played my first 2.20 MTT to the Sunday $100K. I think it had 315 people and 57 qualified to the tourney.

Really, not a difficult thing to do.

I was dumb enough to play the 100K tourney. Just 10 minutes into the tourney I pull pocket K's.

I'm called by A10 and I believe K9. And on the river came the A.

With 20,000 entrants, I can only imagine how many hours it would take to get within the top few hundred.

Next time, I may just take this advice and cashout the $11.

I didn't think you could. I will try it and let you know.

You can, I've done this several times. Basically although they're satellites, the winner just gets 11 T$ in their account if they unregister.

Welll I just lost my entire bankroll because I'm a complete retard but the 70FPP satellites to the Sunday 100 grand are pretty damn easy to win. I have $T44 now. I am going to use up all of my FPP on these and see how much I end up with then maybe sell the $T or play a bunch of sit and go's

I know those hurt Jay, but at least you got some money back.
