      I've seen alot of people write things like "I don't have bankroll for this tournament but I'll maybe have a go at a satellite".
      I really don't get this. When you have the ticket you still don't have a bankroll to play it so why can you then say it's okey BM?

      Hi moneymaker19, good question!

      Ok, so I'm not an expert on these things but it seems to be like this;

      I haven't got the bankroll size that allows me to enter say, a $100 entry fee tournament. I do however, have enough to enter a $10 satallite and if I win a place (a ticket) to the main tournament, then the main tournament has cost me $10 to enter, instead of $100. :]

      If you have any further queries, just ask away! :)

      Have fun,

      Yes I understand that it only cost 10$ for you but the variance will be much much higher and with more variance you need a bigger BR, right?

      Well I think satelliting in is ok for taking shots.

      For example I'm playing 15$ HU SNGs and micro-low stakes MTTs, but I really want to play tomorrow's 10M GTD tourney, so I'll try to sat. in. If I succeed OK, if not - never mind, I wont go busto because of it.
