these are the 3 main ways i have found in how to start a freeroll hope it helps
Strategy #1: Get lucky early
There’s plenty of variations to this. Basically, you are trying to get all of your chips into a pot early. Why? Because everyone else is. In some freerolls you might see five or six people pushing on the first hand. Even if you wait out the opening rounds and play solid tight poker, you may be up against players with 10 times the chips you have. When you are dealt AA, and you have 1,400 chips, a player with 20K might call with any two cards and beat you. And you might be up against several players who are prospecting. Your 1400 doesn’t scare them. They can afford to play every pot, and you can’t.
So when you can’t beat them, join them. Push on the first hand, or any early hand, with pretty much any cards. I would avoid pushing with an ace less than A10, since you’ll likely be dominated. And hands like 3-5 can probably be tossed as well. Better yet, unless you have a monster (JJ-AA). I would wait until the second hand, when you’ll likely have fewer callers and a better shot to win a pot.
The benefit of this? You find out early if you want to devote time to the freeroll. If you can start creating a big stack early, you have a much better chance of cashing. Slow and tight can often be a recipe for getting sucked out on by someone with a much larger stack. If you lose? So what? You haven’t lost anything. You’ve actually gained time and energy to devote to another freeroll.
Once again, I don’t recommend this when the freeroll offers better prizes. The poker is likely to be much better.
Strategy #2: Super tight
The exact opposite approach can sometimes work in freerolls as well. Since you know nearly everyone else is trying to get lucky, sitting back and waiting for a monster can be a good strategy. Take that uber-aggressiveness and use it against them.
As we discuss, the preflop monster is good, but can get you into trouble against multiple big stacks. The post-flop monster, when you’ve hit your big hand, is preferable.
Don’t sit back and let people bet it for you, though. Bet out against the big stacks. They’ll probably call you because they’re bored. Or want to get lucky again.
Playing just the top 10 hands is a good idea, perhaps mixing in suited connectors. But don’t go prospecting with junk.
The goal here is too build a bankroll through solid play, which doesn’t always work. But if you’re playing as much for fun as for the result, this can be a good way to play a freeroll.
Strategy #3: Prospecting
This could really be strategy #1a. But it’s different. Here your goal is to see as many flops as possible before the stacks around you get too big.
This probably means skipping the first hand, and maybe the first several. Once the play calms down, call with any two cards, unless you are up against big raises (greater than 4x the big blind). Once again, the goal is too get lucky and try to build a bankroll. But you are giving yourself perhaps dozens of hands to do so. You’ll once again figure out if you can get a big stack early, making it worth your while to play.
