Many players like to play satellites for major tournaments, what was their biggest satellite, and what was the value of the entry
What would be the satellite of your dreams that you would like to dispute?
Everyone has their own quirks. For example, I played a $ 3.30 satellite for a tournament that costs $ 33 (this is my most expensive tournament I played)! But I dream to play the most expensive tournament. For about $ 1000))))))
Recently I got ticket to the MicroMillions $22 from $3.30 at PS, and yesterday I won a $30 seat to the main event of Championship challenge at 888 from freeroll. At the moment there are my biggest winnings from the satellites. It`s funny, but both events start at the same day and fast at the same time next week)
Got promotion 2.2 ticket on party poker, won 22$ ticket with it, then 109 with 22 and played half final satty for 10k Caribian party live tourney.. Lost aj vs qj for 1100$ worth chips in last min of half final so if won that hand i would have 11% chance to win it in final...
I've used to play the $0.01 sattys in partypoker like crazy. The sattys reward you tickets for more sattys, which were $0.01 => $5.50 => $22 => $109 (MTT). I've won the $109 MTT thrice and won $67.50 from a PKO on the last one I played.
On PS this is my proudest moment. Re-buy / add-on tourney which I didn't do either. So that's a straight up 100x on the investment.

I used to prefer playing the satellites on FulltiltPoker,(pre-BlackFriday) where they often ran ones with half-decent structures & pay outs were approx. 1 in 4 (ie. $6, $7, & $8 satellites for their $26 tokens (which had many great tournaments to play in with them)... & then you could also go for the $75 tokens, playing in the $26 buyin satellites to win $75 (1 in 3 chance).. & then again to their $215's.
As far as a single 'best' satellite goes.... I suppose mine would have to be one I played on WilliamHill. It was free to enter & I took 1st place for $5,000 (which was a trip + expenses to WSOP with entry to $1,500 MonsterStack)
re: Poker & What is the Biggest Satellite You Ever Won?
I cant remember how far back it was at least four years Party Poker had a free roll Canadian 20 point special where top 10 players get a satellite ticket for the Monthly Million tournament. I got in from the free roll ticket but could not cash.
