Sorry for the late response and thank you!
The fields are insane in some PS freerolls. 10$ gtd in a 5000 field (where the winner gets more than 50% of the winnings).
The VIP level freerolls are ok, 10-15k fields with 10k gtd. So a min cash of 1$ is pretty nice if you don't sucker out. Bad part is they're weekly, not daily. So if you're not being a nit and pushing KK+ only you might end up staying on the bench for another week.
I've had my fair share of winnings in 2015 (biggest cash was a 320$ win on a 4.40 8max, never had more than 10$ bankroll so I guess that was a good year), but now that I can't seem to put my bankroll up once again for this year I'm having quite a hard time playing (being a student in a poor country doesn't give you much opportunities, I find it hard to save even 10 bucks). I need help finding the best freerolls out there that can start your bankroll. I've got both pokerstars and 888
accounts with some levels on them so I have access to a few premium features. I just need some info on what's out there. This is how I got on this forum but the freerolls here are a bit too hard to join. You need at least two months to get your account eligible. But I'm starting to like this place, so I'll stick around just lurking and posting
If anybody has some tips they are welcomed. The best I've got so far for anybody in my situation is joining the PS open skill league, grinding the 10k field and cashing 0.02$ in the top 100. Then you can go on and join the 990 sng (if PS calls it a sit n go I'll go ahead and do so myself) and cashing in the top 50 for 0.10$. That's as far as I got , suckered out on KK against pocket 6's on the 0.10$ sng with a field of 360.
The grind takes about 8-12 hours, but if you manage to beat these insane fields with jokes as prizepools you'll end up with a few dollars which can start your bankroll quite nicely.
If you need any help feel free to private message me. I helped a few friends get into the game by coaching them on live micro games and they did fine. But don't expect much, I still have a lot to learn.
