... just dropped within the last few days, and it is just as you would expect: mostly favorable to the house. I've played a dozen now, and with the exception of one $3 buy-in (that payed 5x), they've all only paid 2x the buy-in. Fortunately, I took that one down.
Yeah I get what you mean, they definitely are mostly the 2x buy-in and a few 5x. But I really like them, the gameplay actually seems really soft to me (at least in the $3 buy in one) and they play really fast which makes them kinda fun and great short handed practice too. I started playing them yesterday with the $6 I won in a CC freeroll last week and I cashed in 4 of my 6 (1 for fifteen). Hopefully that trend stays the same lol

The 2 $3 games I played the house took 33%. Pretty much a rip-off.

The windfall SNG's seem like another reach for BOL to increase profits quickly in continuation of the new tournament structure on the site. I love BOL and hope it's not going anywhere but i'm getting worried with these frequent changes and new tourney structures that the site is hurting. anyone have any input?

re: Poker & Bet OnLine Windfall Tournaments...
this type of games are good, but personally i think $3 min entry is high for me.

yea I have issue with the windfall when im not getting good starting hands.
Yea for $3 buy in the house takes $3, kinda crazy but for a small buy in to double your money or even 5x your money back is not that bad IMO.
