Just don't get upset if you get sucked out on or have a really bad beat. A lot of players play super crazy in the first couple levels to try to build a stack. Sometimes it's good to play like that to build quick. If you get knocked out, just remember you always have another freeroll.
I actually coached a friend in a freeroll the other day and it depends largely on the structure.
if you're playing a tournament that starts deep (200+ big blinds) try to see as many flops as you can early on for 1-3 big blinds. People give a lot of action with just one pair after the flop so you can get paid out well (just be cautious yourself)
this gives you a chance to get ahead of the big blinds before they start rising, and if you miss the flops, no worries, you invested a little.
As for playing big pots, make sure you have strong hands AJ minimum, but usually medium to big pairs like 99+ and AK. People will happily get all their money in preflop with almost anything, so it's nice to have hands which can have a 70% favorite.
Be patient once the blinds get really big, and hoe to run well in your all-ins.
As the previous posters said too, don't expect too too much because the odds are against you in fields this big, but the payoff can be quite nice for an investment of 0!
I found that in freerolls everyone is looking for the quick double up..all-in! Everyone is trying to build a large chipstack and they play aggressively mainly because it's free. Have patience and be ready to catch someone.
Good evening. In Freerolls I play as if I were playing a tournament worth a good prize but in Freerolls you will face players pushing all in the drill which increases your chance of losing even with a set.
Play super tight at the early levels, but doubt be afraid to shove all in with the monster starting hands such as AA or KK. As the tournament progresses listen up a bit and try to stay ahead of the blinds.
Play aggressively. Be aggressive, but only if you were able to collect a lot of chips. Not risk. If your stack is comfortable for the passage of prizes, and at the table intelligent and aggressive partners who know how to "push the bubble" , do not risk relegation from the tournament
