Your opinion requested...

Here’s my dilemma. I have a $500+35 seat with my name on it. That seat is in a Full Tilt satellite tournament for the biggest buy-in tournament in WSOP history. That tournament is expected to have the greatest names in poker history playing for arguably the title of “Best all-around poker player in the world”. For all intents and purposes, I’m dead money in a live casino, let alone when across from the Iveys and Negreanus of the world.

ToddCommish should keep/sell the seat. Discuss.

I'm assuming your 'roll can handle the buy in for the satellite. How do you view your chances? If you think you can win the satellite, I say go for it.

You never know what'll happen at the WSOP. Think about the young lady who nearly made the final table, not to mention last year's second place finisher. I'd bet neither of them thought they were good enough to make it that far.

Now, if you wanted to donate the seat to a total stranger, like, say, I don't know...ME, then I say go for it!

For us mere mortals, the odds of cashing in the $50K HORSE event are pretty slim, due to the nature of the game.

The $500+35 Full Tilt satellite to that event will likely attract some pretty skilled players as well, due to the size of the buy-in and the game involved.

From a sheer dollars and cents/EV perspective, you'd likely be better off selling the satellite seat. That'd be the smart, non-gambling thing to do.

But if you don't need the money, hell, roll the bones.
