I play Limit Hold'em S&G Freerolls
at Everest. People are crazy and keep reraising with nothing (and often catch the point..).
After one day of unsuccessfull playing, I decided to change my strategy and started spending some of my stack to call "reraisers". I know it is bad poker, but most of the time I get ITM and feed my bankroll.
Limit can be frustrating for some (my husband, for example, doesn't like it), because you must struggle a lot to eliminate your adversaries. But, if played well, it's good exercise, because it teaches you patience.
