So! You come 18th out of 5278 and get .23c and you think that is cruel. It is cruel. The winner deserves the lions share and 18th deserves only a fraction of that. It's always nice though to pick up a few bounties along the way and that is why the payout structure is as it is....you could always decide not to play for bounties and win .30c for coming 18th! Good luck with your game as you go forward!

yeah tournament structure is not a huge piece of bullsh1t... that's the main reason i don't like to play them... well apart from other not so important ones like not knowing how to win a hand and not having the roll to play anything that has a buy-in with real money.

I have seen worse... In unexpected giveaway freerolls on 888 poker you get only 9,70$ to finish 11th out of 18000 players. All the money is on the final table. That's what tournament poker is all about, not only going deep, but winning the whole thing Blink

Just ask Pochui, he will give you tips so you can do better!! (like wearing a bra while you play)

Good luck!

I wish...
All the money is in Amaya's (and the other providers, owners) pocket. The question is which one of us could reach deeper for it.

The only result that matters is win win win and win even if you ended 2nd there you'll have that little regret as you know you were so very close, at least that's what I would feel Sleepy so just keep working hard and show great character for better results, gl.
