This is a discussion on Frustrated within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Hello All:
Im very dis-appointed in the decision I made, after playing against 8626player's for like 4 1/2 hours - I wind-up an not place.
Yes you are correct, it was one of them- an i think it was for 1st thru 27th position. it was a crazy game basically i just folded unless I had a premium hand, then after the second 5min break an i started catching quality hands thats when the player's started really focusing on staying in an placing.

re: Poker & Frustrated
I'm used to play these (24 or 27 places to the weekly depending of the kind of game).
When I pass the first hour break I generally go through the top 100.
Then most part of the time when you play for 4 to 5 hours you're not yourself anymore.
The countdown for the qualifier is very slow as people play tighter and tighter.
Usually I fall between 50 and 25 with some good places which put me into theweekly. I should work on my game on these very important moments as I'm not playing as well as I would like to.
But definitely these freerolls are a great experience as it learns you patience... as it takes you a lot of patience to still alive till the end.

Yeah, ive played afew of these, came 7th and 3rd in 2 of them. Never been down to about 30 left and went out yet, if im sitting on a nice stack and there is about 30-40 left, i fold everything and i mean everything apart from the obvious like AA, KK, QQ but things like AK, AQ, AJ is a no go for me when there is only that ammount of players left.
