      What is the best way to clear FPP if I play micros and I play rarely.

      I heard you can participate on Sunday Storm sattelite where 2 out of 6 wins, unregister, and get 11$ (tournament dollars). But is it worth?
      Where do you spend FPP?

      well, if you are break even at those sats, then for every 6 buy ins (6x235) you get 22$ and 10fpps, so for 1400 FPPS you get 22$, meaning, that each FPP value is 0.0157 and that is a very good exchange, as buying bonuses from the store gives for ~0.011 or so.

      So my answer would be playing any satellites is a good exchange.

      There is no best way, you just need to put in a lot of volume, be it cash games or tournaments.
      I spend my fpps buying cash.

      I play 180 turbos which has small rake based on duration. So really hard to put a lot of volume

      The 6max 235(I believe) FPP sats which award 2 tickets are Hypers though.

      The variance is GINORMOUS.

      Iirc it's 500 chips and something silly like 25/50/10 or 50/100/15 starting levels, but I can't be 100% sure, but it's FAST and quite a lottery on average.

      If you know what you're doing in SnGs, there are 10max 70 fpp sats to the Sunday Storm awarding 1 ticket.

      There are also 210FPP sats to said Sunday Storm. They award 6 tickets per sat (20 people enter). If you know what you're doing in sng's they're really good value.

      All the best,

      depends on your volume, if you earn over 2000FPP's a month and don't like spending much time on FPP satelittes, then the 235fpp satelites (2 out of 6 ppl get 11usd ticket) are great, even though its a bingo slightly.
      I personally don't like wasting time on satelites, so this is the best way to use FPP's and get (I guess) max value from it. Or buy in directly to Big11 for 700FPP if you play them often anyways.

      best way is 1000000% to play 235fpp sunday storm sat. if u have maners to play good push fold poker u will have around 40% itm. (i have 40% on big sample and that the reason why im sugesting this). so if u calculate u will get 1$ for 53,41 fpp im platinum star on stars and for 1 vpp i recive 2.5 fpp, so for 1$ rb i need 21.3636vpp. So for ever 3.88429$ rake paid i get 1$ rb (without stellar revards, its only fpp rb) its almost 26% rb without stellar, so i think is around 30% rb.

      Finaly, my sugestion is to play 235 fpp satelits, bicoz there is at last 80% fish who limp oop with crap (10bb deep), call all in with crap etc.
      <<<<<BTW its hyper turbo ---> variance is BIG, u can easy be 20 tourneys without itm be aware

      not really many fish in those 6max 235fpps and lots of regs, like lots, lots, so i really doubt you could ever have 40% ITM in hyper turbo over big sample, or your sample is not big enough

      6 max hyper sattes are the best by far!

      lol, if your ITM is >50%, that a looooot of positive variance

      I like to play step tournaments. First you have to play sng with 100 people. If you win you go directly to step 2 ($27). Next 9 players recive step 1 ticekt ($7.50). Then you only play 1 table SnG. First 2 players recive ticket to next step, and ussualy places 3 and 4 repeat same step. When you reach step 4, you can choose or to go to next step, and try to qualify for some live tournament, or to use $215 ticket to play at Stars. Every time I play Sunday Million with that ticket.
