How to Win Satellites with M0NGY
If you do want to try your hand at qualifying for the Spring Million, PartyPoker player Scott ‘M0NGY’ O’Reilly gave some advice on how to win MTT satellites over on the PartyPoker Blog. Here are some of his top tips:
1. You don’t need all the chips
First, you are not there to win it. In a regular MTT, it is all about accumulating as many chips as possible as soon as possible to try to win the tournament. In a satellite with six seats, you are only trying to get into the last six. If you get to that magic last six, it doesn’t matter if you have 90% of the chips or just one chip — you end up with the same prize. The aim is to get to about one-sixth of the chips in play, and then to sustain rather than accumulate.
Second, you want to survive. It’s not very often you get to the situation where you can just sit around and fold to the gold. This means you are going to have to play hands. Generally, the best way to play these multi-seat satellites is small ball poker, i.e. just trying to steal the blinds, or by exercising pot control to keep pots small. By not risking too many chips in one hand stops you from accidentally undoing all of the hard work that you have already done.
3. You are not the only one wanting to fold
On the other hand, though, you aren’t the only one wanting to fold. Often the chip leader will take a relaxed approach around the bubble, opting to fold even very big preflop holdings rather than jeopardize his stack.
