It all depends on how low they where.. But then it may of just been a bunch of "donks" who did not know how to play.
I played one a week ago, kept my stack at 1500 and placed into dead last, since i knew i was not getting anything more then a buck back, it made no point for me to build a stack.
But with the new games it makes a point to build a stack from the start and keep it.
I mean i could keep my chips by stealing every now and then, build a big stack, but what was the point of building a big stack, you did not get any more of the prize pool, for playing better, or building your stack up.
To ones like me, they became pointless to play anymore, it's all based on the chip stack you got and not just getting the top 5 places out of 10.
And so then DON's sucked after some time of playing them and i quite playing them.
I was able to knock off a reg SNG, within an hours time, got a better payout for my time.
I hoped i cleared it up some mootso.
