Default WSOP hypothetical question (not about AA)

On teh day of the WSOP2006 Main Event, which you have a seat into you are invited into a HUGE cash games, 100/200 NL full of nothing but the juciest fish you've ever seen, if you can't afford the bankroll someone will stake you and let you keep the profits, the game will be going for hte full 2 weeks the WSOP is on.

Do you go to the main event?

did I buy into the ME or win a sattelite?
I'd just sell the tourny seat and play in the cash game.

If they are truly as fishy as you say, I truly keep all my profits, and it goes for the full two weeks, then this is super easy cash game choice.

Obviously not. If you want it to be a close decision, say you already made it to day 2 with a lot of chips or something.

Yeah, there's always next year....make it a tougher decision like TME said...like say you are 20 off the bubble and you are slightly above average stacked.

What's the max buy in at the NL game?

Huge profit to be made off the cash game, and the probability of profiting is much higher than profiting off a 5000+ person tournament. Throwing in the fact that someone will stake you with no cut on profits, what's there even to discuss?

Obviously the cash game has a far higher EV than the ME, but I think the OP is looking for the point at which the thrill of playing in the world's most famous poker tournament overcomes strictly EV decisions. I play poker for fun and for profit, but it's not an important source of income, so I'd play in the ME. I'd feel like I passed up more than an overlay; being in the ME is participating in poker history. Cash games are everywhere, but there will only be one 2006 ME.

But by playing in the cash game, you can play in the 2007-20xx Main Events...

I go to the main event and play very, very LAG poker to see if I can build up a big stack. When I bust out, I go to the cash game.

Sure. It was hypothetical, so I just figured the scenario was limited to this decision. Seems that the OP wanted to look at this as a not strictly EV scenario.
