      The best is to play 235 satellites for sunday storm and then sell T$. With 2100FFPs you can play 8 satellites.

      What do you think about 280FPP 6 max turbo satellites to MicroMillions(also 11$ buy in),2 places paid and third gets 280FPPs.

      Sounds like that satellite is similar value but a little less value.

      Yeah because it costs more FPP to enter the MM version :) The 235FPP satellites may not be running at the minute because during the MicroMillions the Sunday Storm becomes a part of it :)

      Why does everyone think the 235s are the best for FPP?
      Fastest, yes
      Best, no.
      70FPP storm sats are so much better in terms of 'FPP ROI', opponents getting in 75bb with weak offsuit broadways in multiway all ins in the first hand.

      There is only 1 seat offered in the those 70FPP games and they last considerably longer IIRC

      This is true, but if you have the time, they are much better converters of FPP->$T because the lack of skill in these sats is unparalleled. :f_biggrin:

      but you'd have to win 1 out of 3 to get 1 ticket. takes longer to finish and more opponetns = more variance.

      while the 235s have the same fish, faster finish and less opponents.

      people get it in with worse hands more often than not and top 2 gets paid

      Quite a lot of the time you don't even need to play as 1 player usually knockout most of them. Heck half the tickets i have gotten from this I didn't need to do much but just fold.

      If you have some good ICM knowledge then they are easy to beat.

      Well it depends what is your main game, i play same format every day and for me these satelites are a goldmine... most ppl have no sense there what are they doing, they just push any two good looking cads. You need to cash in about 30% to be profitable, for 6max hyper players its easy to get 35-40% here... it could be even better than SN bonus for us.

      Does anyone know if buying 55$ - 3500FPPs tourney tickets is good in terms of rb or is it better 235fpps tourneys?
      Is buying tourney tickets good if you count as real money?

      You can exchange tourney tickets for actual $ in pokerstars either on pokerstrategy thread for it, or many automated sites will do it at like 98% or so.

      The $55 ticket is 63.6FPP per $
      If you win 33% of sats it is like 64FPP per $ and since you're playing only 14 there's gonna be variance to factor in too, so I think its better to buy the $55
