      I know it's still early since real money tables haven't even started :f_grin: but could we use this topic to see what will be the best way to use points.

      I have some 3k+ points (cant remember if that was worth anything before, probably not) and would like to make the most of them :)

      Oh and i plan to go a long way with my 1,60 $ left on balance . By long way i mean the freerols :f_biggrin:

      The store has discounted items until Nov 18th so it might be the best value to get a clearable bonus/ticket before then, while it is reduced!

      If you play cash games I'd buy some ring game tickets while they're discounted.

      If you play tournaments I'd look into entering as many STT satellites for the daily dollar as you can, however many you end up winning split them into blocks if five. (So you've got a buy in, a rebuy, an add on plus 2 contingency rebuys just in case) and each set of five you have is one Daily Dollar to enter and hopefully earn some cash.

      The best thing would definitly be Ring Game tickets in my opinion though. Simple, effective and good value for your points.

      i ll share my experience with the ftps . I had 240k ftps . I am also diamond member so i could buy the 1000$ bonus for 240k. But to clear the bonus i think u need to rake 2500k$. You can also add a 30% rb to that rake so its +750$ , overall is 1750$ but u need to clear that. I decided to buy 16 tickets of 75$ and their value was 1200$ . Played the 6max super turbos matrix and steps sngs when they were available and managed to have a profit of 1500$ with not so much effort. Maybe i missed like 250$ but i finished them in 1 day while clearing the 1000$ would take me at least 1.5month and none can guarantee me i would be a winner pre rb. But ofc i am a sng player so that helped a lot .

      I hope i helped some ppl to decide -.-

      well i didnt have any experience on matrix as well. my primary goal was to try at least and turn 1 tournament dollar to 1 dollar. Matrix gives u the opportunity to cash easier than normals sngs. Also in the step tours of 75$ 6max u just need to be in the first 4 . The 4th one gets 69$ which is ok to trade a 75$ticket for 69$

      I took the matrix advise,

      I spent 52,000 FTP and got 10 x $26 tournement tickets

      Played the $26, 6max, super turbo, matrix sng's

      Results were:

      $58.50
      $58.50
      $0
      $10.50
      $30
      $0
      $58.50
      $19.50
      $30
      $0

      Total: $265.50 ($0.0051 / FTP)

      This took about 3 hours.

      Just played another 5 with the last of my FTP's

      26,000 FTP's spent,

      Results:

      $78
      $19.50
      $58.50
      $60
      $0

      Total: $216

      So with the first lot I've spent 78K FTP's for $481.50 return ($0.00617 / FTP)

      Compare that with a 44K FTP $200 ring game ticket ($0.00455 / FTP and needs to be cleared)


      I do feel that I probably ran above expectation over what is quite a small sample size. But that said, these SNG's definitely had players making -ev plays such as limp/folding 10bb stacks, folding 2bb stack in the BB and calling 10bb shoves with hands like J:heart: 4:heart:

      Since 9 man SNGs are my specially,

      What do you guys think about buying 28 Step 1 Tournament tickets?
      Is this a good way to go or just a waste of money%

      They say step 3 and abovee can be used for a tournament of the same buying $

      Pre BF Steps were soft as phuck - Made it to $640 stage with 2 at least. I played Turbo Step 1 and 2 and Super Turbo the rest of the way.

      Don't know about now.
