Of course, it is. But consider that on Ultimate Bet they run their free-rolls every hour on the hour. Along with FTP free-rolls they are the biggest donkaments to be found on the net. after the first 10 mins you won't see a flop for less than 10xBB. TAG has to go out of the window. Unlike in other free-rolls if you haven't got 10K by the first break and 50K by the second you can forget about placing in these.
In my opinion the reason that FTP and Ultimate have the biggest donkaments is because their payout structures are so tight, T18 on Ubet and T27 on FTP, this in fields of 3K+ on Ubet and 2400 evrytime on FTP. As a result its either get a big stack or get out. TAG has little to no chance. Even if u play TAG you're going to have to stick your chips in on numerous occasions and the downfall of it is that you won't have the stack to survive a donking (probably by me! ).
And it is a strategy, it is as follows: Try and double up 3-4 times before the first break, if you do then tighten up from there but be prepared to throw your chips in when leading, if you make it to 3rd break then play blinds and TAG. If you don't get the double ups, then start again an hour later.
