I played 2 tourneys. Placed 7th out of perhaps 300 in first, and placed something like 17th out of 600 in second. Both money finishes.
For the 7th place finish, I got about $200 for $8-buyin. 17th I got about $40 for $10 buyin.
EDIT: I love the feel of tournament a LOT more than public rake tables. In tournament, people are more wary and aren't stupid enough to call everything. It's a whole different mentality to me - I picture it as "survival of the fittest". I'm not playing to rack up the most chips but to just survive, hahahah. In each tournament, I remember only having about 3-5 good hands. That's it.
