Default PokerStars 180-man SnG's

Has anyone else played these tournaments? The buy-in is $20+2, and the play will often make you wonder where some of these people managed to find $22. Top 18 places pay, and 1st place is $1,080. I've watched friends play in several; I've played two so far myself and finished 38th and 33rd. AK called my preflop all-in and caught his K on the flop to send me and my TT home in the last one.

If you're looking for a relatively short tournament to play (2.5-3 hrs start to finish), I'd suggest giving one of these a try.

wow! this tourney sounds awesome.
wait, it's not a tourney, its a SitNgo!

i quite like that number ,180.
usually, in most poker rooms, the tourneys are either small cuz the site is small (ie around 50~80 people). or in the other case, the poker site is big that there's well over 250 people.

180 people seems ideal, and seeing as it's a SitnGo, it's on demand, not scheduled. and seeing as Pokerstars has TONS of people this will fill up real quick!
sweet i better give this a go.

and ScottMc, congrats with the great results!
just wait till i take down first place for over 1000
oh wait, i may do it once.,, but not sure if i can do it twice like you!
anyways seeing as ScottMc placed in the money so much, that sitngo must be full of fishes!

(jus messing with ya

i'm definitely gonna give it a go

Played one of these after waiting ages for it to fill up (it was probably about 5am US time though so its understandable) Had my pocket qs cracked by some maniacs 6s early on and was out within the first few hands . Never played one since - don't really like pokerstars that much as i have probably had the least success there.

I started out playing on pokerstars and have played in these tournaments around 4 times. I cashed in one of them and ended up like + $5 overall. Soon after them I got tired of the site and went over to titan poker which I've been with for a while now. The tournaments are nice and for 180 people they move relatively quick. I also wanted to say nice going to Scott because thats a hell of an effort and I am sort of wondering why are you not doing these tournaments everyday and making a decent living. Maybe its just me or maybe you are already.

I think Partypoker has $20 180-man sags too, not positive though.

AGreen that is a great job.

However, how do the blinds go. If they are like some sit and gos and go up quicker than I would not like that.
What is the advantage of this type of game to say a MTT?

They play just like a regular MTT. Advantage to them over a full MTT is that you know you're playing against a field of X, and you can judge the length of time it'll take you to play one fairly well. Bascially, the payout for 1st is rather nice, and you only have to beat out 179 others to get there, as opposed to an MTT where you're likely to see min 600.
