Well, I'm done with my portion of the tournaments. I played in both the cheap $150 $50 bounty tournaments.
Some amusing, well maybe not amusing but interesting items:
Both tournaments started with 240 entrants, they took alternates until the end of the 6th level. In both tournaments that ended near the 350 mark.
In the first tournament I knocked out 3 people early, got knocked out myself at 11:02pm.
In the second tournament I knocked out 3 people early, got knocked out myself at 11:04pm.
I thought the tournament was well run but it was really my 1st "special" tournament so what do I know.
The bottom line is, my expenses for the tournaments were the 2 waters and 2 cokes so a whole $4 and since I got comps based on the approx 8 hours of play, I "made" $10 or so.
Not a great profit.
