This thread perfectly sums up the reason that I no longer play on PokerStars
, as I am a US player. As such, I am only allowed to play on play money tables. I've noticed that at Bovada
, Carbon, BCP, and PokerStars, these are all the same. Nobody folds, and anytime the average joe gets an ace in their hand it's an All-In donk-festival.
In short -- and this is honest opinion -- play money is a waste of time. I would just go for the free-rolls...and I do. In my opinion, they are the best way to improve your poker game
. Sure, they are occasionally a donk-festival, but if they want to go all-in on every half decent hand, let em'. If you don't have a call-able hand, then fold. Eventually someone WILL call them, they will burn them, and they'll be out sight and out of mind in no time. That's how I come in the top 10 in BCP freerolls ALL THE TIME. Let the donks kill each other first. That will eliminate a good amount of competition.
