pokerstars $2 free
my apologies if this has been a topic. i haven't had an account at pokerstars
for very long but realized in one of the random logins there they'd given me $2. this is a site, *eventually*, i planned on making a deposit.
anyway, excitedly, i found some 1.15 double or nothin sng's. and won 2 out of 3, for a sweet 55 cents, woo hoo! i learned those double or nothing's aren't very fun though. they're waiting games, you need to double up what you have at least once and you're generally fine. and i learned AK may not be that great a hand to play in these things in the one i lost. lots of ppl talking a lot of trash for playing in an amateur type game too. left a bad taste in my mouth but i can ignore that. i noticed they had 10 cent tourneys with i think 360 people, and penny tourneys with 980? ppl but not much over 20 ppl get payed and its a hyper-turbo, so that's a crapshoot to me.
every time i log into pokerstars and look for a convenient freeroll, in the past anyway, i could never find one, or find one at a time i could play. so my question is...is it worth trying to grind out this little bit of money in these double or nothing's until i've either made enough to have an all right bank there where i can actually play some regular games? is there anything i missed there that would be a better option with such tiny amount of money? (i'm not confident in ring games at all, haven't ever played many). or should i just do nothing at all with it? i generally treat every penny in an account like its sacred, especially when starting any bankroll.
i know a lot of you here play there so any suggestions would be appreciated.
