So I have been playing poker on and off for awhile. I have come back only like a month or two ago. I thought I had it down, I really believed I could make just a few hundred bucks a month once I cashed a few freerolls
. I have been playing steady, bouncing from BOL, FF, ACR and Juicy Stakes
when im bored waiting for another tournament.
I'm playing like crap. lol. I raise with 4 callers, their range is anything, position means nothing, 3 or 4 betting is worthless in freerolls. I have been playing loose aggressive, I feel like a noob again. I'm lost, I feel like I cant calculate anything, put anyone on a range because its madness.
So I decided to to play passive poker tonight. Limp with everything but AA, KK, QQ, and AK. When I did raise it was just min raise, if my minraise got reraised i would 4 bet. The rest of the hands I played passive with. People play anything! So what good is JJ unless you spike a J. its worthless because you have 3-4 callers on your pre flop bet and your odds
of winning the hand becomes well crap.
I played like this in back to back Freerolls and finished in the top 100 both times out of 1000 or more players. The problem is I find myself low stacked when Im at 100 players left. I'm no longer calling straight draws, flush draws. If I do its because i min bet and someone just calls. If I get reraised, Im out and I know that is to passive at times, I just no longer feel like firing a half pot raise or 3/4 pot raise is worth it, yeah i might take it down there on the spot but if I dont im just throwing chips in a pot i will only win 25% of the time if im 4 to a flush on the flop.
I really am at a loss with this freeroll garbage and i feel like its really messing with my game. I just got equilab because i couldnt find pokerstove anywhere that worked. I geuss Im trying to find the happy medium in a freeroll. I hate passive play, I'm becoming a rock in freerolls because its madness.
anybody have any advice other then play tight in the beginning then loosen up later, im finding that it really dosnt matter, im getting 4 callers either way. lol. I dont even bother with ACR much anymore, 10 dollar freerolls are just a waste of time with a feild of 700+ at times. Bet online seems to be the best at the moment. Anyways thats all the babble for the night.
