Good experience tho.
I'm not talking about the actual tournament. I'm talking about the satellite. Try playing satellite. Buy-in is 30 cents. 3rd place gets 25 cents and top 2 places get $1. Unless someone really looks into details of all types of tournaments, most people don't know about this. They only know regular $1 sng. But for people who need money real fast, this is a perfect satellite for many reasons.
Reason #1: Very cheap. Payout structure is good. 30 cents buy-in, 3rd place gets 25 cents and top 2 places get $1 dollar instead of 50/30/20 where only 1st place pays off.
Reason #2: LOTS of people are reckless. They play like pure donkeys and they know they're doing it themselves because it's just small 30 cent tourney that they don't care about. I can guarantee you, 4 people will get eliminated within first 5 minutes or so. I itmed very often by folding EVERY hand except extremely premium hands such as AA, KK, QQ. In beginning, I even fold AK, AQ, AJ, JJ, TT because there are lot of wreckless idiots who go all in crazy.
