if i were to play one i would suggest to play one of the sunday games cause the NL tourney on saturday is quite a donkument for the first couple hours. ive tried a couple and if u dont get a hand early youll be blinded of before play gets a little more realistic.
Do what works for you, but if you have a ticket, you took the time to play a freeroll. Sure, the top levels of ITM make the bigger $$, but that's the way MTT's work (for the most part).
Sat or Sundays are pretty much donkaments (imo), but that's standard for any freeroll regardless of payout structure. Stars payouts aren't too bad in these considering they pay approx 18-17% of the field. Hard to get blinded out early in these since the blind levels are every 15 minutes. These aren't the turbo games.
