Going deep but not much upside

I opened Full Tilt for the first time in two days to do two itty-bitty buyin tourneys for deep runs.

Exhibit A: the 5 FPP donkaments that are running through tomorrow.

Full Tilt Poker Tournament #99604464 $5,000 Guarantee NL Hold'em
Buy-In: $0.00
12423 players
Total Prize Pool: $5000.00
Start Date: July 19 12:05 AM ET

You finished the tournament in 1454th place.
There has been $0.50 added to your account.

Not as deep as I'd like.

Exhibit B: a $3.00 + $0.30 MTT KO, I started at the same time. Halfway through, I vaulted near the top with quad kings on the river (DQB!) so this was an OK run through 815 people - my best "donkey-slayer" finish so far but requiring a finish of at least making the final table to take the lead in this prop bet.

Sadly, no: 2.67%.

Full Tilt Poker Tournament #99561091 $3 + $0.30 Knockout NL Hold'em
Buy-In: $3.00 + $0.30
815 players
Total Prize Pool: $2445.00
Start Date: July 18 11:20 PM ET

You finished the tournament in 22nd place.
There has been $7.95 added to your account.

At least I got a few knockouts along the way as well.
