Supersatellite Tournaments
You 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.
