I just noticed this and this isnt directed towards any one person or group of people so no one take this personal. I noticed from reading through last couple of threads last couple of days we have alot of play money pro's. Anyone else notice this.
Like the guys that say they win freerolls
all the time, or hey I win those sit and go's left and right maybe I should go pro.
Guys they are freerolls, more then half the feild is gone by 1st break, and they are terrible for your game. Yes I said it I think playing a freeroll could make you a worse player. BECAUSE you pick up habits that you normally wouldn't have, Like say you are on the button with something like AJ well in free money this hand is ok to call a all in with from a all in under the gun because basically his range is very high and you probably have him dominated. In a real money
game you wouldn't even think about making this call.
I think free money causes tons of holes in your game. I think a player would be better off not playing free money and just read poker forums
and books until he has enough real money to make a sizable deposit. Every once and awhile I will play them but my game has surpassed past the point of taking them seriously.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is please our free money players dont take your finishes in free money games seriously, do not think because you can crush the free money games that you are ready for the big games. So when you start online do not just jump up to 1/2 NL or higher because you can beat the 100/200 NL on free money. It is not even close to the same game. Just my opinion take it for what its worth.
