Hi all

Last night I won $11T$ on the midnight madness at full tilt. I have various ideas what to do with them. What do you think?

There are three choices as I see it, they are:

Covert them $ and play on my normal cash tables

Use them as funds to satelite to a bigger tourney, (I fancy sateliting to the MSOP main event) or

Use them to play lower level tourneys and try to build them up.

I also suppose I could use them what I won them for and enter the midnight tourney for $8000.00 guarenteed

I have added a poll, but am more interested in what you think.

One again thank you all for your advice and GL to you all.......................

i suggest convert them to real money and try to build up a roll,
better than investing it in just the 1 tourney hoping to get lucky to cash,
i wish you good luck in what ever you choose Smile
also keep us updated on how you get on

I will go for the "go big or go bust" mode. No point in grinding endless hours at Full Tilt at this time. We can't be sure if we still get paid.

Just do what you're good at.
If you're +ROI in MTTs,play MTTs...if you're -ROI in MTTs,do the cash variant.
However,remember that if you convert T$ to normal $ you pay a 5% fee.

If you cash them in and play low variance will more than likely get you so if you do decide to cash them in play sit and goes otherwise go for a double up somewhere but whatever you decide good luck

I would convert them and play cash games. you can also do buy ins for tourneys and still have money for cash games.
never hurts to start steady and slow.
unless you are very lucky and you think you can get a good result from a tourney like some members said above Smile
good luck in whatever you decide.

I would take the money if it was me, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush as they say. Adding a guarantee $11 to your roll will hopefully speed you up to the next level (Depending how big your roll currently is). I think if your roll couldn't currently support playing in the big tournies then do everything you can to build to that point.

i think it depends what it means for your bankroll and your poker. if you hav enough in your bankroll then go for the big one but if you have few $ and dont wanna deposit your own money then convert them into real $ and play whatever you are good at.
gl with whtver choice you make Blink

play 11 daily dollars, if your a decent player youll turn that tourney money into more $ and help build up your OPR, if your better at cash games though id say just convert and have a few extra BI at the micros

Well, first of all congratulations on the win, always it's nice to win something, even though the prize is not that big, it's still a winning. Blink Smile
Now back to your original question, i really think it's a personal choice on what you should do. You could get tickets to another beigger tournament but in this case you really need to be a very good tournament player.
As you posted you said you are a cash game player so in this case i think to see that a good decision considering you are a cash game player is to convert them to real dollars and boost a bit your bankroll, now of course, it depends on what limits you play on cash games, maybe it;s a insignificant amount of money for your bankroll, in this case a ticket to another tournament seems a better option Cool Blink
Good luck and keep us posted on your evolution!

Thanks all for your input. I decided to play the $ what I won them for and guess what I won it - NO ONLY JOKING - I sucked out in the 3 level I was playing ultra tight for me and the was dealt KK in the cut-off - I raised hoping to get a call and the BIG blind went all - in. I paused and then thought oh well this could be the sign of things to come - so I called - He had AK, so I thought I was about 75% favourite. The flop came 10 7 4, Good I thought then came the turn damn A Heart. This was my luck I thought, bingo. Then came a Q on the river. OH sugar I thought, but hey it was fun and I will attempt it again. Afterall, do we not play the game for fun and pleasure...............

GL to all you mobsters......................

See you at the tables soon.................

Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

Its so nice to see players being able to break through their instant moment of sadness after loosing with such powerful thoughts of positiveness, I bet that, if you look that way to your life, you should have a way full of success. We all should think like you just did! "Ok, i lost, but it was fun and i play for the fun, so its was good!"

Build a new bankroll is always a good option, when you want to monetize your investment. This way, you can try double or triple it and then, yes, it will be better to enter bigger tourneys, without spending all you won.
