AlfieAA, these are 10cent 6max SNG's on Titan. (so 18cents is pretty much standard payout for any 6max 2nd place finish).
I'm thinking you were of the assumption 'Jakarta' was some tournament or something???
imo, keep playing those 10cent single-table SNG's (maybe play the 10-player ones instead).
I'm not sure what the play is like in them, but I imagine they'll be great practise for sure.
When I first started playing online I played 10cent SNG's on DoylesRoom. They were a great oppurtunity to practise on the cheap (& even slowly build a low-risk small bankroll). Back then ('07) the play in those 10cent SNG's was tighter than the $1 (& $1.50) sng's on Stars & FTP. They were far better than playing in freerolls & were decent practise for playing SNG's.
I actually built up a bankroll on Doyles, starting off with a $2 freeroll win & then playing alot of those 10c SNG's. It was fun at the time. Actually built that roll to over $1,000 (with the help of a $15 freeroll cash).
Also, I would strongly suggest to forget about getting a HUD. You don't need it imo. (at least not until you've got a decent-sized roll & are playing multiple tables at a buyin that makes it worthwhile.). Focus on the basics & get a solid foundation before you bother considering something like a HUD.
Lastly. Not sure how you're using Pokerstove (I'm a bit confused from reading your posts).
For help on using Pokerstove (& what it's useful applications are) try searching for a tutorial vid. on Youtube.
(maybe look for some SNG vids. too,.... or check for a book at your local library > "Secrets of Sit'n'gos by Phil Shaw", or maybe google search "The SNG Blueprint" < it's a free e-book you might find helpful)
