I was just asked this question and decided to make a new thread about it because it is an important subject. If you can build a decent bankroll from nothing in a month on freerolls, you will have a much better chance at winning a buy-in. It also depends on the freeroll. The Cardschat 250 people dont mess around much, not like the 10 on demand. I think a high amount of entrants in a low freeroll like 25 and under are the hardest. Still a good learning experience. So what is your strategy for tourney play? try and make
it to ITM or WIN, and how about the first 2 lvls

Here is what I find difficult with the free roll tournament's.... I have done many on ACR where the field ends up being 650ish players paying the top 10 ($10 prize pool). That is only 1.5% of the field... yikes. Don't mast paid tournament's pay the top 10% or so?
The BOL $100 paid the top 40 but regularly had over 2000 entrants. Again less than 2% of the field.

I should note that while only a small % are in the money the play in the free rolls is terrible. With a bit of patience a deep run can be pretty common.

re: Poker & Are Freerolls Harder Then buy-ins?
Tournaments have high fixed costs.It takes the same amount of effort,luck,and time but NOT skill to win a freeroll as it does a 1m Guarantee. I did not notice much skill difference in the big tourneys I'v played only the high rollers are to be avoided.

The thing that makes freerolls seem harder is that you can have AA and get all in against someone shoving random hands and they'll hit that 1 in 10000 shot hand to beat you. So the actually thing is that variance is so absurdly high in freerolls from the bingo players that statistically sometime have to hit a hand that get you knocked out really early in these. Then that also plays into the other side of this, when some of the better players or even the bingo players start to win on these shoves or shove calls after 2 or 3 levels you have the top 10 players already have an absurd lead over the rest of the field. It's a delicate balance between playing enough to win chips and stay with the top of the pack and not playing to much that you lose tons of chips to the random bingo players. But never fear, cashing in freerolls is still a very doable thing!
