Strategy for Freerolls paying 10 of 600
I have made only enough cashes in the ACR $10 Freerolls
that can be numbered with my two hands.
And this is after an enormous amount of tries.
Last night at 3am was an 8th for .55 which was the fist one in at least 30-40 tries.
Does anyone have any good strategies for these such as a hyper-aggro beginning style in order to explode to a 5x stack or bust and then bullying through until the end with well timed river shoves to polarize your missed draws and river-nutted hands?
Just curious, because I am putting in an enormous amount of effort and feel like I should be cashing much more often.
The QQ into AA has been hard as well as the AA into A10 and losing sucks as well.
I have learned that shoving anything or than AA preflop is quite vulnerable to Ace rag calls and actually doesn't completely dominate, but actually go down quite often.
It is better to see a flop and verify the Ace miss or Ace and King miss and entice a top pair top kicker to call your allin with the over pairs than preflop shove with large stacks late in the tourney from early position with a host of stacks ready to snap you off with an over pair to your over pair.
My biggest crushing bust was with 20 left, an 80K stack (3rd) and pocket 4s into a very small raise..
4JA board with 2 diamonds seemed very safe for a check raise shove (assuming the had the classic AK or AQ or maybe even AJ), only to be called by JJ and a crippling 90% stack loss.
Is that avoidable by just respecting the ICM and folding huge spots like this? or is that just a very rare cooler....just wondering...there was 2 diamonds so perhaps in light of the flip against any two diamonds, I should have played it much slower....
What do you guys think?
