would be hard pressed to find a situation in poker
where it is more important to keep track of exactly
how many chips you and your opponents have than at
a supersatellite final table. You want to take the
absolute minimum risk necessary to lock up a seat.
Anything more risks giving someone else a better chance
than he deserves, and anything less wastes your investment.
Suppose that 77 players do just that, creating a prize
pool of $61,600 (800 x 77). (In reality, some of those
105 players would be in for the minimum, while some
might be in for $2,025, but pretending our field members
all invested the same amount gets us the same result
as if they averaged that amount.)
In this super, six players will eventually win seats
in the main event and the seventh place finisher will
be awarded the other $1,600. Normally, the rule is
that you must play a seat won in a super. You can't
sell it unless you win more than one or have already
bought in for cash.
