      You have to enter as a general rule. I don't think there is anyway around this.

      FTOPS are not your usual $50 tournament. They are full of bad and sometimes completely awful players attracted by the large prize pools. Try and separate yourself from the entry fee, and pay attention to the table your are sat at and I'm sure you'll find at least 3 - 4 bad players within the first hour. Try to isolate them with your premium hands and limp with spectulative hands and you should be able to get a half decent stack before the first break.

      Keep on eye on people's play after the first break, especially if you are getting pinged around the tables as there are always a few fish that have got lucky and still play like maniacs, and you should try take advantage of these deep stacked fish whenever you can.

      After the second break, I'd suggest that you tighten up to within roughly a 15% VPIP and play only your decent made hands and draws after the flop, as many of the fish will be eliminated by then or at least tightening slightly and the field is likely to be a lot stronger. If you feel you maybe behind in a pot then fold. Also try to put pressure on the blinds as often as you can but always have at the very least a spectulatice hands that could get paid off should you hit the flop and face OOP donk bets from the Blind caller.

      Then of course you play your heart out reach the final table and take it down.


      This is all just the kind of approach I would take, I am not a MTT player but I have played a few of these FTOP events and these are just my obsevations.

      Good luck, I hope you do well :)

      If this is a ticket you can only use for the event it is used for, in your case the FTOPS and cant sell it, you can only sell it if you won it in TD (Tournament Dollars), which can be changed into real money.

      Yes you're right, he could do this, then he'd be left with a useless $50+5 FTOPS tournament ticket. If you win a satellite nowadays on FTP you're credited with a tournament ticket to that specific tournament, not T$ or a cash alternative.

      I have another question.

      When I signed in in FullTilt yesterday a pop-up opened and there wrote something like: If you get 10 FullTilt bonus points on Rush Poker until Sunday you will get 5$ in 4 hours after achiving that.
      I think I went over 10 points but I still didn´t get the money. Did I understand the inscription wrong or what?

      Thank you for your help, bye
