re: Poker & Building a roll from freerolls/ACR promotion
I've gone from freerolls to $1-2k in 3 days a lot as an exercise and out of necessity and it's very doable to build a br from freerolls. Basically win what you have to first to get cash, then play cash mtts for $.50 or $1. If you win one that can get you to $100-200, then win a $5 mtt.
I like to have at least $20 before I play cash $.50 or $1.00 mtts so I can have at least 2 going and feel comfortable rebuying, and really you can just put in $20 if possible unless you just want to say you did it from freerolls. This week I went from $18 to $2.5k in 4 days and it's very doable. That was from winning a $1 rebuy, then $5 rebuy, then $6 rebuy.
It has to be mtts if you want to jack up a br fast like that. At lower stakes or freerolls TAG with good stack play and correct pushing at the bubble will get you deep. Playing SNGs and especially double up SNGs will improve your FT play. You need top 3 finishes to jack up br.
