On a whim I threw out all solid bankroll rules and entered a $4.10 knockout game and won took home $13.50 plus I won 9 of the 10 .75 bounties for another $6.75 lol

I found the game to be real soft, all the fish went out fast, and it was me against 2 20 tabling regs.. easy strategy raise they fold.. they raise I fold lol... Also if I had a strong hand I found they folded easily to a big reraise... I have to admit though I luckboxed on the ko's of the 2 on the river, but I would recommend that anybody with the proper roll should try these out

I've played a number of the $1.40 ones. Some were soft, but some of them were alot tougher than I thought they'd be. Did win one once though.

nice, congrats. i think when you play smaller field sngs, you can be a bit more aggressive with your bankroll, definitely paid off

Everyone has a threshhold = some games are just your speed. Adjust to the game, and figure out how to beat that particular game.

Good luck!!
