Newbie/Need Help Finding The Best Sites to Play Online Tournaments and Freerolls At
This is my first ever post here at cardschat, so hey, everybody. This and Pocket Fives seem to be two of the more talked about online message boards so I decided to join up and see what's what.
As the title states, I am wanting to find out where the juicy payouts for tournament games and the largest prize pools for freerolls
reside on the internet. I almost forgot to mention that I am in the U.S., which from what I have read, severely limits my online poker options.
As luck would have it tho, I checked out Carbon Poker
today to see if they had any freerolls I could play in and was pleased to see that they offer a freeroll that is exclusive to cardchat members, which is how I ended up back here.
Here is a rundown of the sites I have accounts with as of today. All of these were found online after extensive research using Google. BetOnline
, America's Cardroom
, Carbon Poker, Bovada
, Lock Poker, Juicy Stakes
, Poker Host, SportsBetting, Sportsbook Poker
, and Intertops
Poker. (I can only imagine the spyware that is crawling around my hard drive as these keys are pressed) Of the aforementioned sites, the only ones I have spent much time on is America's Cardroom and BetOnline, which brings me to my next point.
BetOnline is pretty good for freerolls. They have all-day $10, $25, $50, and $100 freerolls and a once a day $200 European Nooner and $300 Nooner Freeroll. I actually placed in the top 50 in the $300 Nooner last week and made a whopping $3. LOL. America's Cardroom is kinda the antithesis of BOL, as the only freeroll they offer is the $10 On Demand tourney and a few satellites that are next to impossible to qualify for. I have placed in the top 10 a handful of times in the $10 On Demands in the week or two that I have been playing the tables there and got to a bankroll of about $10 bucks but that's after spending hours on end playing for literally pennies. I also have got as far as the third round of the 50K GTD freeroll and made it to the Weekly Final but busted out before reaching a seat at the $200 buy-in. Like so many that have come before me, I'm just sick of playing for what is more or less Monopoly money. I'm not opposed to making a deposit here and there cuz I know that's probably the only way to really build a decent-sized bankroll nowadays, but time is money and playing for small potatoes is getting old fast. It's only been two week and I'm not exactly finding pots of gold buried on the internet.
Hopefully, someone out there can help point me in the right direction.
Thanks and Long Live Poker!
