Kind of Hijack here, but if you had rakeback on party poker would you get it for each step of the steps tourney? I ask because sometimes I play a mini step when I want a break from ringgames and after 20 or so tables on the first buy in party has made a ridiculous amount of rake off of me.

What do you think is the best way to qualify for the big Sunday MTT on Stars?

I was going to do like this exact post.
Of course, i was going to have a snappier title.
I do believe that the variance for the DS is humongous. I'm a good/decnt SnG player but playing against that field is crazy.

What i'm doing is the 3+Rebuys (to the 215) and then using those $T to try to satelite into the 615. I feel i have an edge in the 615 due to the deep stacks and my satelite experience. I agree with adanthar for sure I'd rather be in a 100 man tourney paying 10 then 10 paying 1.

Good Post

I've built up a decent Stars roll from the 11r turbos. The 36+3's might also be good, I'm not sure.

I didn't see alot of your, and it didn't help to have Sirio11 on your right, but when you reach the bubblish area and you aren't in immediate danger, you should just be picking on shortstacks in position and folding anything but QQ+ and AK probally. Shortstacks CAN'T push back at you without a hand (unless they suck) because the bubble=0 and next =12000, everyone understands that.
sat bubbles are nerve racking experiences and playing the player matters even more than the cards imho

They're great.

I dunno about the rebuy ones, that just doesnt seem smart, but the 36 freezeouts, are incredible easy.

Yes, the 11r turbos are nice. Turbos in general stress me out too much, though, which is why i stick with the $36+3 freezeout most of the time.

See, this is why the sats are so profitable. That's a very intuitive guess. It's also totally wrong.

Say you've got 18 people left, 15 go, stacks vary from 10K to 50K and the blinds are 500/1000. You have 20K on the button. Would you rather push into a 13K stack or into a 25K stack?

Answer: assuming both players know anything about poker, it's the 25K stack, and it isn't even remotely close.
