    Yeah, they use to have it in their rules link. It's long gone - I think they removed it quite awhile ago before the new website 'look' was implemented last year.

    $550 specifically. Was thinking of running rake free satellites.

    Cool. I'd be up for that. I used to run those from time to time. I used the structure from the brantford $130 satellite tho, as I found it to be a better fit for the situation. Only difference was I added a 75/150 level - I found 25/50, 50/100, 100/200 to be a little aggro.
    I'm pretty sure I still have the structure in a spreadsheet on my desktop at home if you want it.

    Sure I'll take it.

    No prob man. I ended up finding one from a few years ago online. Don't know if it's the same one they use now but gives me a general idea. I'll probably tweak it a bit anyway.

    so if i ran some sats, would you guys be interested in just straight up regular $550 for the winner(s) only or would you prefer equity sats?

    if yes to equity sats, what is a reasonable amount to withhold and how should it be distributed?

    for example, 1% or 2% to each "losing" entrant equally (with winner(s) keeping 92% or 84% of themselves) or maybe something like 20% from each winner divvied up based on finishing positions (with winner(s) keeping 80% of themselves).

    let's assume max of 10 players x $110 buyin = 2 $550 seats awarded.

    idk, just throwing some ideas out there.

    I'm not a fan of equity. Straight up is good for me.

    I do like the idea of having a rooting interest in the winner of the satellite.
    For example, the winner of the $550 typically gets ~$14k. If I want to win $100 as a satellite participant, that would be 12% going back to the non-winners.

    +1

    that's 1.5% for the eight that don't win if there is 1st and 2nd payouts.

    I'm with Card Dead on this one, it's a good idea in theory but in practice it's just a pain in the ass... with the potential for more annoying problems like the person not following through.

    In my experience it's been too much hassle for what's at the end of the day just 8 bucks worth of sweating someone you don't really know.

    .... that being said, I'm not a huge fan of satellites anyway. Run it how you want it!!
