Yes Henkie the caps not too good on the eyes, i dont like DP but its growing fast so i guess some ppl do, as doomdy says, say you have 4 players, 2 tables, each table is delt the same hand, highest chip count at the end wins, this is very confusing in the tourns, you can beat you oppninent but if the outher table beats with more chips you lose, confused yet!! you can win all and lose!!

i played my 3 $ almost to the cashout limit. and they recently added cash games (i havent tried them yet tho). but i agree: its not poker the way you know it. if you play it like this you will loose big time and probably have not much of fun. key element to make 18 $ from 3 $ was for me, beside looking for good promotions, superagression in the right spots and playing hands with nice odds against ace rag idiots...
also i think you need some experience with this special format to win in the SnGs.
You are not playing against the players on your table, per say. You are, rather - playing against players on different tables. They are getting dealt the same cards as you, and your aim, is to accumulate more chips than they do.
