Yes that was close. I agree that the structure is very bad but it is the same for all players that are in.
So in this case a $20.00 win is very good. I do not know if you were up or down in getting your tickets in any case this will help your BR. Congratulations and it is not over you can make some more and i wish you do.

yes skpmorita, thats impressive, and I am very satisfied with 20$ from that tourney, I tought I will win something like 2$ from this all ins, and 20$ is a way more that I expected... but I was so close to crack the whole thing... there is a lot of diference between 20$ 200$ and 2000$... and diference in cards were slim... just one more hand if I won I would ship 200$... look at that way... 2 hands away from 2000$...

StheP, what you got represents total value, especially as you didn't have to play or do anything to achive your sixth place in this all in Freeroll. It looks at this moment that you were the top single earner in the promotion so don't look a gift horse in the mouth and don't worry about not winning more....... Your time will come!

I agree the payout structure does appear to be very top heavy and I can understand the disappointment of only $20 but as others have said it is still a great result to have even got that much.If you had the choice of $20 or play the tourney again I am sure you would take the 20 bucks.

Congratulations on your win. It could have been more, but it could have been less also. Winning 20$ from a single tournament is not bad at all. If only you could do that good in all tournaments. Who wouldnt like this, having a steady 20$ Better luck on next one.
Congratulations StheP, winning 20 bucks is better than winning 1$!!! 2 more hands might seem like it's not a lot, but considering how many you won to get there, winning 2 more hands is statistically improbable. Mathematically, it's like exponentially less likely for you to win like 20hands in a row than it is to win 18 in a row...
I have won 8$ In total with around 20 tickets so It wasn't bad for me either!

Hi mate it happens what you can do is to get used to those situation as they will always be coming up and so on and you can end up losing money if you get tilted by those situation, the best way is to get them although they are a natural thing and you could not get tilted and it will be a positive situation and all, anyway good luck mate have fun at the tables , me going to sleep Liverpool did not win lol, cheers peace out mate !
Odds of winning 10 coin flips in a row are: 1/1024.
Odds of losing 10 coin flips in a row are: the same, call me captain obvious
So yeah, you have to be really lucky to win one of these all-in shootout, obviously. 1 flip doesn't depend on the earlier flip's result and obviously all hands aren't flip, in some you'll have your opponent dominated or be dominated yourself.
How many hands do you have to win in a row to win the whole thing?
