Try the 90 man knockout SnG events. They start with 2000 chips and 10/20 blinds. After 1 hour the blinds are 50/100/10 ante and after 2 hours they are 200/400/50 ante. The lowest buy-in is $1.40 then jumps to $6.75. If it fits your bankroll and you want a very good structure give 'em a try but be prepared to stay 3 hours if you run deep.

Joe, the 1.40's are good. I've won them before. They do take alot of time, but if you've got patience it will workout for you.

I have to agree though, these are awesome. You can actually play some real poker.

For those who don't have the bankroll for these, I'd recommend the $.25 90 man SNGs. They have the same structure as the knockouts you mention, Joe.

But I agree, for those with patience these are great events to play.

so if you knock out 2 people and get to 12th you almost double your money

I play these all the time, have won a few. I have found that the level of ability varies from good to donks.

The 90 man bounty tournies are great, you get the bounty bonus to help defray buy in costs when you get donked out early and they pay well when you get an ITM. They are part of my new daily grind since I moved up stakes from the .10 360 SNGs tournies and .02 .04 cash tables after a good month last month.

survey says another thumbs up for Joe's reccomendation
