          Never mind the cash - beating that many bingo's players is reward enough

            Cheers all!

            Ovalman - 1,767 players is a comparatively small MTT field for me - and yes of course there are the usual hordes bingo players to get past that you get in any Freeroll or tiny micro buy-ins MTT.

            The structure is quite fast with 5 minute blinds and fairly steep escalation - this is the furthest I ever got in this specific format and nobody was ever very deep relative to the blinds in the late stages.

            I think the extra $50 added really helps the prize pool - here, with $177 from buy-ins and $50 from stars a pool of $227 with about $125 on the final table - top spot was $37.62.

            These games are a good place to practice MTTs and have a chance to build a roll from scratch. Definitely recommend them to any PSOers starting off building a roll. Wish there were more of these as I prefer them to the $0.10 360 sitngos, which pay $6.80 for top spot and are even bingoier.



            Good luck all

              Nice one Ed!!! umbup: +1 on the value in these .10 ($50 added) MTT's. The $50 added to the prize pool is really like having another 500 players adding to the prize pool who you don't have to fade. I always liked the .25 ($100 added) that runs every night at 10PM ET for that reason as well. Totally agree that I wish they ran a couple more of both these tourneys a day. Huge value for players on a starting mini-roll.

                Great job Ed! umbup: John (JWK24) Moxie's right.. that extra $50 helps. Played a good number of these before black Friday. Lots of deep runs, big +ROI, but no FT's.

                  Well done Ed,

                  I was really chuffed to read this! You have much more skill at this game than you give yourself credit for and with a bit of good fortune you should really be competing with the best pso has to offer.

                  I am expecting more in the future so don't let me down:-)

                        Nice win Ed, 20$ bankroll boost for 10cents invested? I'd make that investment all day.
