Default Help with snapping vertices to centre

OK, I just got Kurt Boutilier's low poly bundle dvd set :attn:

Its a great tut, well done to Kurt! (I finally understand uv's a bit better lol).

My question is...

in the video Kurt mentions about snapping to vertices to the centre, he selects them all and says hold x and they should snap to centre, only that only works if there all in line with each other.

My vertices were a bit wonky on the centre so i selected them all and did as said, but there were still ones that didnt snap... i ended up snapping them one by one to centre :S

Is there a way round this?

Thx for your time!

That's one thing I miss about Rhino3d -- they had like 10-snapto commands (tangent, center of object, middle of face/curve/polyline, ends, ***orthographic***, etc.) Maya could be a lot easier with those.
