The real heartbreaking one for me is the Cake 1K satalite FR (which I feel are one of the better FR deals going) but you gotta make top 7 in this satlelite to play on saturday for pretty good money, but I have had so many top 12 to 8 finishes and its like WOW I guess when there were 75 people left I should of really played more hands and tried to get the chips I need as I know over and over appox 40K in chips will be enough but 22K is only gonna lead to a close but no cigar deal
Yep - As has been mentioned by many, the freerolls with the best odds
will be private freerolls like the CC ones. Also there are a ton of private freerolls on full tilt. A lot of them require that you do stupid surveys or sign up for SMS type services that cost you money - but if you buy a pre paid phone you can sign up for all the sms stuff and get a bunch of gift certs for full tilt and poker stars.
I've pretty much abandonded the idea of taking down a 7500 player freeroll. Not worth the effort.
There is a really great FTP academy freeroll that run on the second sunday of each month(something like that). All you have to do is get on the leaderboard for the Sit n' learn quizes which is pretty easy. It has like a 5k prize pool and only a few thousand entrants every month.
Other than that, work on your tournament game here at the forum and eventually you'll be able to play in the CC freerolls. That's my primary freeroll focus right now.
