I don't believe there is any secret formula for cashing in freerolls.
I have played very many freerolls, on UB, pokerstars
, full tilt, pokerroom, party poker
, and in lots of these there are 1 000-10 000 players and only top 100 at best payout- usually top 27 or top 30, or at party poker micro prizes for anything less.
Also, at least a quarter of the people playing are trying hard to finish in the money, so when only 1% of the field is paid and 25% average-to-good- players are playing seriously, the only way to win is to play extremely well, and to have decent luck, well you certainly can't get unlucky often.
The only freerolls where I feel skill is better rewarded is limit games.
Gl, if anyone posts an uber-freeroll-strat here I'll be interested lol.
