It can be random luck and often it is. However, I consistently get further and further into these freerolls
the more I learn. You can't be too invested in the freerolls or you'll just get all out of shape from watching to dipshits get huge stacks by playing like dipshits. I sometimes join in the allin preflops at the beginning of the freerolls if I'm dealt a good starting hand. Why not? If it's at the beginning of the game then I don't have a lot of time invested in it, and I may end up with 5000 chips that I can sit on for a long time if I choose to. It's bs play though, you won't learn anything playing like that. You MAY win a a quarter or a dime or a dollar, but that's irrelevant if you're not somehow learning how to play a serious game. I play freerolls now mostly to practice what I've been reading about. Though, it's often hard to when I'm constantly forced to go allin if I want to see a flop. But still, I do it, and sometimes I get to add a few pennies to my little change collection I use for buy-ins to micro tournys.
