I got in one Saturday night for $1 (rebought in 4 times) and finished 2nd for ~~~~$120. http://www.americascardroom.eu/poker...mentId=4674947
These games are slow tho, levels are 15 minutes, and 12 levels of LR. This game lasted 6 1/2 hours. It was a $1k guarantee and did not cover.
Add in that the deeper you get the more nitty the play gets, and you must expect to spend a long time getting to the money. Luckily, there was lots of Boxing on TV last night.
I would suggest you come in late with the intention of multiple re-entries. There is 3 hours of LR, and my last re-buy as somewhere around the 30 minutes left to register mark.
