This is a discussion on Attacking draw freerolls tournaments within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Do you often notice that during freerolls your opponents never fold flush-draw or straight-draw on the flop or turn? They continue to attack and raise,
Yes, quite the common occurrence. Flush draw in particular. I get it though. It is a freeroll and people play more loose because they have nothing to lose and all to gain. Also the tournament structure is often very fast.
I have noticed that, but you have to take into account that it is a freeroll, which is the worst thing that can happen to you from wasting time playing that tournament? because they are not investing money, just time in that tournament, you also have to keep in mind that they may be looking for a better play than is obvious in the flop, suppose they follow their instinct or have a lot of faith or hope to have a lot of luck
This raises the blocking which is usually used against tight opponents. In the micro and medium Bain is a common situation. In the high-stakes bet that it usually only makes the wrong call in terms of mathematics. When a flush draw on the flop bet is equal to half of the bank. Or against a very cautious opponents 75%
If for instance 4.000 players compete for 1.000$, and a mini-cash is 10-20c, do you really want to spend your time trying to fold your way to that mini-cash? I would rather either build a big stack, that give me a shot at reaching the final table, or be done with the thing, so I can spend my time on something else
