Just played my 1st game in a while, just a ko sit n go, and guess what, I finished IN THE MONEY.:eek2: It was a brutal game as I was not getting very much and I was short-stack almost all-tourney but I hung in there and made the money which helps the confidence. :)

Otherwise these small micro tournaments would be nice for people who are starting to play but usually just freerolls and micro buy in ones people don't really play poker but just splash all in middle and then it's just flip after flip.

With even little higher buy in €$£5-10, people tempt to at least try to play poker instead of going all in with first hand J8 non suited etc...

Been there, done that. I once was playing a freeroll and on the very 1st hand I got dealt AA in late position. When the bet got to me I went All-In. To my surprise, the rest of the 9 player table went All-In too. Heads up, AA has a 83% chance of winning against a single opponent. The odds go down the more players are in a hand against AA. As it turned out I got busted by a Player with 6-6 when a 6 apeared on the flop for trip 6's. I agree that there's less stupidity when the buy in gets up past the $5 level and that's what I generally play.

Finally had time to fire up a game, started just dreadful and looked like I was going to be the 2nd one out but hung on and WOOOOOOOOOOOOO came back and finished 2nd, I coulda won it but I kinda had to go do other things but I could have won it if I played heads up normally against this player so pretty much count it as a win,lol. :D
