Low- Middle stakes MTTs used to be my thing, but found alot of holes in my game, variance aside i lacked consistency in play. do freerolls help your game in the long term do you think or is it just a base to get started
You can play 888poker and pokerstars for freerolls .
888poker , if you can and want to play there , have the 20$ snap tournament free for all but after level 5 you gain access to 2 other freerolls , level 10 2 more etc .
You can use the money to play steps :step 1 costs $0.01 and gives 0.10 step2 , the step2 $0.10 gives $1 step 3 etc .You can use step tickets to play to SNG or tournaments , but you should play SNG at the beginning until you build your bankroll .
Pokerstars used to have many freerolls of its own (100k privelege , 2000 round2 weekend) and more of sponsor sites , but now has less and the freerolls that are pokerstars' are more difficult , in my opinion , to get access or win.
If you can win them (the cash giveaway, the CC,etc) play SNG by the rules of the articles refering to SNG strategy posted on this site , buid a bankroll,then start playing MTT. You need a lot of buy ins when you start playing MTT .
Play MTT with the rules exlained on strategy articles on this site.freerolls help you at start , but you must go and get familiarized with SNG and later with MTT ,early-middle and late stage .
Good luck on the tables.
