You've been luckier than me at these tables. I WISH I can find some tables where donks knock each other out and I don't have to do anything. Last 4 times, I've finished 6th 3x and 7th the other time. All it takes is for K9 to take out your AQ once and it's over.
To me, at DoN's, the only objective should be to finish in the top 5. It's very difficult to play any real poker because if the format you play is similar to the one I try at Carbon, your starting stack is so low, and blinds/antes go up so fast that usually one or two hands is enough to determine if you win or not. No poker skills required other than knowing when to shove and when to fold.
