It doesn't matter that they're rubbish, (players take the tourneys a little more seriously) but it will give you a little while to get in the mindset of playing 2 and only 2 of your hole cards (you'll want to only include one sometimes too, to begin with) and give you the chance to see a good few hands to see what wins and what is definitely not worth pursuing
Sets can win btw on dry boards
Not a bad idea. Carbon used to have OH Freerolls
, not sure if they still do.
Nothing like thinking you have the nut str8 and then realize you need 3 of your cards to fill the gap. (That was from my first time too, even though I knew the rules, the mind set wasn't there yet.)
