Default Jerry Yang playing $120 super satellites

Are you kidding me? You win 8 million plus and you can't afford to pay 25k to buy into a tournament?

Its not really that unusual. I've saw Mark Seif playing the satellites in Tunica before.

and if u think about it

consider taxes which will take a decent chunk
add the half million minimum he donated to charities
and the house he bought in fresno...wouldnt be surprised if that takes at least half the 8 million

That's true. Lots of pros try to satellite into the WSoP main event, or at least used to, because if you're a really good satellite player then it's +EV to do it that way.

Good for Jerry Yang for not just going totally nuts pokerwise like Jamie Gold.

hellmuth was at the table next to me in one of the $2,650 supers to the WPT championship. Satelliting into 25k buyins, or at least trying, isn't "beneath" a big pro. In fact, the only reason you wouldn't is if it would cut you out of extremely juicy side action.

Actually that weekend I saw Johnny Chan, Todd Brunson, Carlos Mortenson, PH, shannon elizabeth, tony cousineau, kirk morrison and several more that aren't coming to mind just in the satellites I played.
