only site i can think of that actually has grntd money tourneys that are bargain is pacific poker. each field is about 250-700 for the 5 and 20k grntd. party poker's rake is too high, and their tourneys are borderline IMO and not worth the overall commitment of playing there exclusively.
Can you guys point out some good sites out there for this sort of thing?
Also, irrelevant but - does bodog allow non US players?
I'm not sure how you classify a "bargain"? If, in your example, 3000 players show up, that makes the prize pool 15k, well in excess of 5k guaranteed. This makes top $ something just over 2k, pretty good potential return on $5.
If you're seeking guaranteed $ tourneys with an overlay,
clearly you won't find them at PS, but then, you frankly won't find them anywhere for too long. Poker sites
, being capitalists, won't continue to schedule events that dip into the corporate cookie jar to meet the payouts.
