10 Important Tips for how to win a freeroll
1. Play only premium hands at the start of the tournament.
The start of the freeroll will always be a Donk Fest, most of the luck riders will push all their chips into the middle with any 2 cards. Dont play against them only because you see they are so bad and push all in with 7 2 Ofs . You have to play your cards not your oponents because otherwise you will finish by getting a beat beat ( Those donkies are very lucky sometimes )
2. Look after dynamics change
As the luck riders drop out you will be left with opponents that have more of an idea of what they are doing, and they will now have their eyes on the money positions. This means you can play more tactically, and use a few more plays that you couldn't have used at the start, because these players will now actually be able to fold their hands. So be aware of when the transition from luck to poker starts to take place, because it will be time to change gears
3. Dont try to steal the blinds with poor hands at start
The blinds are so small at start and will be a madness from you tryin to steal the blinds with trash cards. Plus 90 % of the players are calling station in the beggining of the tournament and you will not manage to make them fold, so you will end up with more loses then wins.
4. Play hands in position
The information is very important in online poker, thats why you must try to play more hands in position. For example : You are UTG +1 and u have 99. You raise 3x and the button calls. The Flop is T J K . You check and the button bet. In this moment your online actions is FOLD..
But lets say you are in CUT OFF and you have the same 99. You open 3x and the BB calls. Same Flop comes TJK .He checks, you bet and he fold
5. Never call overbets or open shove without premium hands
The reason for this is that so many players bet big or sometimes even shove preflop with hands like AA, KK, QQ just to induce that they have air.
6. Never slowplay your hands
This is a huge mistake to slowplay your hands. Im sure that some of you had AA and got beated so many times. Dont try to be tricky because on a freeroll you will always have action. Someone will be always there to call you 3 streets or even to shove when you have The Nuts
So if u have AA in BB and all table limped in front of you Bet Big preflop and value bet 3 streets.
7. Observe your table
Is very important to see what kind of players are u dealing with. If u observ your table you can get huge informations such as what hands a player limps with, what hands a player raise with etc.
I saw many times players limpin with AA, KK, QQ been passive preflop and postflop. Be carefoul at those players you dont wanna mess with them
8. Dont let you emotions to change your gameplay. Avoid TILT
When your emotions playin for you, the tournament is finished for you. Play your cards, dont let the tilt catch you/
9. Read the table tells
Most of the players use repetitive patterns without even knowing this. Look at bet sizing ( very important ) , also look at how many seconds tank before bet or call.
Also if a player was very quiet and suddenly he starts chatting while is in a hand thats a major tell. That player has the nuts.
10. Dont call donk bets with air
Sometimes you see players that bet very low ( 1 BB Max 2 BB) . You are very tempted to call or even raise them with air. Dont do that!!!!
Rarely a player bet small and fold a 3bet.Even if is a blocking bet they will call your 3bet.
So dont do that with air, just with The Nuts
