This is a discussion on Expensive tournaments from the satellite. within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Someone played expensive tournaments by qualifying from satellites. I had this one time, I played a tournament for 1050, passing to it for $ 2.
The most expensive qualifying for free was one of 320 in partypoker, normally I don't usually play to qualify for the big tournaments I only play satellites for small tournaments, there are many opportunities to play the different tournaments so keep focused looking for those big tickets
I think it's better not to go to expensive tournaments until you've started to win at your limits, you can pay for a satellite and not go further for the same money, you can register another tour, I have almost never been selected from satellites for a huge tour
In my opinion, this is a very slippery slope in poker! This is a kind of ludomania - that is, the game is not a bankroll, but it is very tempting and I myself sometimes play on occasion. But unfortunately, in these expensive tournaments, I show my worst game!
re: Poker & Expensive tournaments from the satellite.
I have never played such expensive tournaments, the most expensive thing I have ever played is 215 $ 109 $ 55 $ all of them from satellites, I always say that satellites are very good, you invest very little for the opportunity to win a ticket to the main tournament and if you win in the tournament much better
I usually don’t play buy in satellites cause I don’t like these type of tournaments. I only play satellite freerolls and last week I won a $55 ticket playing on 888poker, which it was nice cause it didn’t cost me anything.
using satellites are great to give you a chance to play a level or 2 higher or to take that shot you always wanted to take on the cheap. I think they can also be a bad idea if you just trying to jump up to make a quick score. When you do make it into these events that are going to be many players much better than you looking at the easy pickings. While I think there great and should be used, just dont overdo he jump. Going from a average buy in of say $0.25 to playing a $110.00 event you will quickly feel overwhelmed when you play the 1st time. This is coming from experience by the way. I was shocked by they play my 1st time.
