    Hi.

    There are satellites every night to the Main, Mega, & on the 5 nights it runs, Sheriff.

    Gotcha.

    If satellites do NOT run it can only be because experience has shown that they repeatedly overlay. And bear in mind running satellites does not always result in more entries in the Target Comp, as many players game the system.

    yeah that seems to be frowned upon I have done that before myself as have many regs. I think though that players will always do what they think is in their best interest within the confines of the rules.
    one suggestion I have made on more then one occasion is that instead of players taking the cash for a tournament if they have already bought in/registered is that they just get a ticket.

    Eg if I bought into a £3 all in sat to the sheriff and registered for the sheriff and won that sat instead of getting £55 I would get a £55 tournament ticket instead then there is no incentive to try and game the system.

    I played last night when it put me in because I could. however when if I see an overlay on those all in sats but know I probably dont have the time to play it that night am I so bad for just taking the cash/gaming the system as you put it?

    a lot of the regular names on sky play sats for cash I dont think it works to criticize the players for that just change the system slightly.

    @Doubleme


    To be clear, I never wrote, suggested, inferred or implied any criticism towards those who game the system.
