re: Poker & where do you freeroll???
I've become temporarily (I hope) addicted to the freerolls at costadelpoker, just because of this thread.
Freerolls every 1/2 hour, I think. NLHE seems to be half or more than half of the games. Max 2,000, but that seems to be during peak European time as later in the day NA time I've played with 500-600.
Blinds move fast; 15/25 up to 500/1000 by the hour break, and you don't get much time to think about your hand. Both of which contribute to the fast exit of players, and a lot of table switching, and both of these contribute to less usefulness of tracking individual players as either they or you get moved in a short time.
But it's fun, and good marketing on their part I think, encouraging cheap beginners like me to play there, while we build up the nerve to start a bankroll.
I went back to the 27 seat play money SnG at Pokerstars and it seems almost lethargic by comparison. Unfortunately Stars is the only site so far that runs on my ancient laptop so I have to stay at the desktop to play at costa.
