I accidentally bought a euro step ticket when the upgrade to pokerstars
7 came along. I thought I may as well use it and won the first two steps and then on the third one (step 4 I think) I was totally out of my depth I ended up coming fifth and winning some euros. One of the players I was up against was a supernova who had a lifetime achievement of over a million points earned. Considering how out of my depth I was I was made up to come 5th. On the upside of this for 200 vpp points I got to play at a level I wouldn't normally be allowed to play within my bankroll... and into the bargain... I won a load of Euros... and into the bargain... won back a lot of the VPP that I used on accidentally buying the ticket.
Yes... I do prefer normal SNG's though as I'm not particularly that good at sng's the steps things are ultimately just a road to failure once I get so far in them but with a standard sng I get to see some ROI.
