The $3.30 Knockout tournies on full tilt seem to be like freerolls but with a little better players. Seems like a very large amount of donks play these tournaments.

that stinks

on the brighter side of CC players,
I finished 4th for $24 and i think $2.50 worth of knock outs

i guess these donks helped me out with my bankroll

coulda won the tourney easy but small blind flat pushes on me and i call with JJ, he turns KK....i was PISSED

then i donked my chips away on the table calling station

I've played in quite a few of these and I think they're actually considerably worse than freerolls. People will risk their tournament life as a 4 to 1 dog just in hopes of picking up 50c - it's hilarious but makes me cry inside a little..

donkeys think there getting better money by knocking ppl no matter wat hand they and in the long road they will be flat broke in no time

yea no kidding


from the examples above, you can see its like freerolls, open pushing 100X bb stacks with J10os and crap like that

glad i made money off of them

As jake said earlier, these KO things means that you have next to no chance that your opponent will fold beacuse they want your massive bounty. I think the donk factor comes from the 'extra money OMG' as a pose to freerolls where its 'no buy-in, but i can win real money OMG!'
