uhh ... its amazing that you joined this site in 2007 because i dont agree with anything that you just said.
1) i REALLY enjoy the Cardschat Freerolls. Are those stupid too ?? If you think so .. the PLEASE dont join the club.
2) Freeroll play is NO different than a "buy in" tournament ... except for the fact that it is "free" to play. Sure, more people are going to go all in more often because they have nothing to lose ... but at the same time, there are a lot of maniacs that play cash games and regular tournaments too ... it just depends on the field. If i am playing a $10 freeroll on ACR and there are like 800 people enrolled, after an hour or two, i get bored. and if there are around 400 people still left, im going all in too !!! What do i have to lose ???
3) sites like ACR have freerolls at least once an hour, and you start with 1500 chips. there are usually around 800 people that play each freeroll. If they only ran a freeroll every 5 hours or so, and gave you 25000 chips to start with, there would probably be around 3000 people enrolled in the freeroll ... which i think would be much worse.
I dont mean to be rude, but i think that ACR/BCP is extremely nice for giving people the opportunity to win free money 24 hours a day 7 days a week. If there is just one freeroll an hour, thats $240.00 a DAY that they are just "giving" to the committed players. That comes to $7,200.00 a month. ($86,000 a year). So instead of saying "freerolls are stupid", you should be looking at them in a different light. In a sense, they are a gift from ACR to us for being committed players. Hopefully you will understand what i am trying to say.
Good luck !!
