Dont take satys winnings as part of you bankroll, just use them to take cheap shots at higher buy ins without risking a big part of your bankroll.
i completely disagree with this type of satty logic. the only reason to play sattys is if you're good at them and it's a good addition to your schedule.
ex. you play 10 $10 tournaments a day and you can't handle any more then that. you have a 20% roi in these tournaments. your expectation is $20 profit/day.
instead you play your 9 tournaments and switch out 1 for a $10 satty. all good with brm and you have the same expectation in the $10 satty. so your daily expectation is the same $20 profit but now 1/10th of it comes in the form of tournament ticket.
you're not really getting around good brm. it's no different to play the satty and use the tournament ticket then it is to play a reg tournament and just use the winnings to buy into a higher buyin tourny.
some people are adding in sattys where they have an expectation lower then their regular games and it's just stupid, imo.
I wish i could explain this more clearly but I think my point comes through enough to hit submit. :P
