I agree with Josh here. Although it may depend where you're playing. I've been doing the freerolls at UB a lot recently, and just finally placed in my first TEC freeroll two days ago.
The first hour it's virtually impossible to bluff anyone out of a pot, as most people will call down since it's free money, and they may figure they'd like to double/triple up early, or stop wasting their time in a freeroll.
Once the blinds go up, and most of these wild players leave, this is where it starts to get real, as others have previously said. I still try to be a little patient here, and get my money in pre-flop with QQ, KK, AA, or AK, because once the blinds go up and it's close to the cutting point, everyone tightens up that isn't in a dramatic chip lead.
