General tactics on starting a bankroll through freerolls.
I was wondering, like many others probably, how to make the most money. Ofcourse by playing good, but I still got some questions. Let me introduce myself a bit first :P
I'm Sleight, playing on fulltilt with, too bad, no money on my account. Never made a deposit, once won $2 in a freeroll but lost it at the ringtables. I'm quite a newb, like, I have heard about preflop raise, but I'm not really good at estimating other peoples hands yet. But that's about the game play. First I was thinking about the general strategy to get a bankroll started.
So ofcourse I'm first looking for freerolls
, and once I've got enough money I'll go and see what works best for increasing the bankroll.
So far I've found these:
-The FTP Dutch 100$ freeroll. Has about 1000 players, 27 people get money and 27th place is $2. Takes about 3-4 hours to get to 27 people. And it's daily. (This is where I got my $2 once, also got to <100 several times. Not great chances but compared to 2nd freeroll this takes way less time )
-The 500k playchip 40$ freeroll. Has about 50 people, 18 get paid, 18th gets $2. Also daily. Never participated yet, because atm I've got only 500k playchips. I was planning on first reaching about 5-10million playchips before playing those.
-And maybe later I'll be able to play at the cardschat freerolls, but that might take some time :P
So my general focus is on getting playchips, and now and then trying to get some money in the Dutch freeroll. I was planning on getting about 10 dollars this time before doing anything with that money, since once I've got enough playchips I can play that 500k playchips freeroll about every day, and 10 dollars can handle some more bad beats than just 2 dollars.
So my first point is, what do you guys think about this strategy? Anyone knows better chances at starting a bankroll at fulltilt or would you guys agree with this?
