This is pretty much what Im trying to say. The only ones I can see people playing and for good reason are the satelite to the ferguson and the satelite to the dd. They both only give out a dollar but they are both quick usually lasting only an hour and a half each.
I agree they are the quick and easy, which is why I mentioned them earlier myself.
However guys (and dolls) I wouldn't just dismiss all other freerolls without stopping and considering what poker is about
1) Playing and having fun.
2) Making big bucks and fulfilling dreams.
If you divide the number of players into the prize money, some of the popular buyins start looking like longshots that aren't worth the effort.
Whilst I am playing I can dream of having a Lambourghini, (well I will do tomorrow, and the day after, and every day until the promotion ends).
But I also believe that if I can manage to play better than average, then I will have a better than average chance of winning.
(unless there is more to life than just poker and something better to spend the time on)
(Admittedly for me, I don't have time to spend on the pokerstars astronomer satellites to qualify for a game of a different type to the one I qualified from, or the fulltilt fields to qualify for a game on sunday and I never understood play money or the now passed freerolls for a DVD), but I suppose for some people they at least satisfy the first criteria.
