btw I consider anything under a $10+1 a freeroll.
I still play freerolls, but not as much as i used to. And i only play $500 and $1,000 freerolls. I agree that its not worth playing for hours just to get $15 for first, but some freerolls give a few hundred dollars for 1st.
Also freerolls are also alot easier to win than tourneys with an actual buyin, and they are a great way to build an online BR from scratch. Actualy, if it wasnt for freerolls no one could make money without depositing. I have made about $500 from freeroll winnnings over different sites, i have never put my own money online, i dont need to. At the stakes i play, its not hard to make a decent BR from nothing.
Ive now got $40 on stars and i have never deposited.
So, why play in freerolls? My answer is to make money.
