There is no doubt IMO that you would have had 6 spare tickets by now if you´d chosen to sitout.
Have played these freerolls
many times and when in top 30 with 150 left it´s pretty safe to sitout, however it does encourage people to pick on your forced bets.
Just look at the maths...and it comes down to what tenbob said:
-Unless there are some very severely shortstacked players
There is always several shortstacked players in these tournaments: 9000players x 1,5k = 13.500k, 13.500k/145 players = 93k
In other words the AVG is 93k! but still grafkarow
is in 23rd place with only half the AVG so as usual in these freerolls there is a lot of shortstack and more than one monsterstack
