There's not much diff between limit and NL in the FR's, IMO. The donkey all-inners NL are the same max round bettors (mouse wheelers as I call them, among other things ) in the limit games. I've played hundreds of them in the last 2 years, L and NL.
Most of the Round 2 tickets I've won have been in the Limit games, but I think that's easy to explain since my preference is limit even on live tables. Play strategies that apply to NL do not work as well in L games, and vice versa.
About the 'pretty dumb poker' comment, IMO the all-in preflops are equally as dumb in NL. Doesn't make the limit games any more or less lame than 12k entry NL freerolls.
Matter of fact, it is easier to navigate thru the donkey nation in limit games. 2 or 3 smart players at a table can stop the charging rhinos, while all it takes is one player at any good NL table, at any level, to throw the all-in flag on the table and screw up a good hand and hours worth of tedious play.
Most Hubbles draw a full 12k entries. 99 tickets is about 0.8% of the players. Don't think I have ever seen a 'full' limit FR on Stars. Depending on the time of day, you are usually playing for the top 2-3% for a ticket.
Everyone has to play where they are the strongest, so I'll stick with the limit games. BTW - I do on the ring games too ... I'll leave the road rash, raw feet, continual reloads, single hand busted bankrolls and bad beats for the rabbits. This tortoise will always make the finish line without too much wear and tear. ..
