View Full Version : Winning multiple satellites?

June 17th, 2014, 03:47 PM
I overheard some folks talking at the poker room, and one guy said that he won two satellites to a big buy-in event. (They were both seats to the same event.) Why would you play another satellite if you've already won your seat? Did he just waste his money on another satellite, winning a second seat that he can never use?

Presumably you get tournament credit.

Often people sell their seat to other people, or.back to the house if they allow it. I remember Jonathan saying he knows some people that play sattelites for a living.

You either get tournament chips or cash. If you get tournament chips, like at the WSOP, you can easily sell them at the cage and I thiiiiink the casino MUST refund you after the series if you don't use them. Most casinos simply give you cash. Others give you a ticket, which is usually worth much less than face value, perhaps with a $500 seat being sellable for around $400.
