Need Help Winning Freerolls
Ive played about 25 freerolls
so far and Ive made cash in 3 of them. Not sure if this is good or not?
But Id like to get better.
Ive been doing a lot of reading here at this forum and other places and I pretty much got down what Im hearing is the best strat.
Here is how Im playing... (Feel free to tell me if you think Im doing anything wrong or leaving out anything important)
In the beginning... (against the super aggressive all inners)
-Play position (as always)
-Call with ak aq kq
-call with pocket pairs in last position
-Raise with qq kk aa
Assuming there are tighter players on the board....
Play looser hands (in position) like k10 a10 q10
If the bored is tight I play slightly looser if its aggressive I play tight.
The problem I am having is that many times I get impatient.
For example, Today I was playing in a freeroll, and the cards were jut not hitting, and I was getting hammered by one ALL IN after another.
This went on so long that I was sitting at 600 chips and the blinds were climbing...
And even at this point in the game the donkfest continued with one ALL In after another.
So out of fear of being blinded out of the game I was holding a marginal hand (q9) and decided to go all in when called.
I was lucky and hit a str. But it kept me alive non the less.
So my question is this...
Is this a wrong strategy when Im up against a wall?
Not every game is this bad but there are times when it just seems the donks are unbearable.
I did get ONE good hand (qq) and only raised 60 chips... perhaps this is where I messed up? Maybe I should have raised preflop with qq and hoped to get someone to go all in on me?
If I would have done this I would have probably been in a better position later in the game.
Any feedback is appreciated.
PS This is my first post, what a great forum!! Already learning a lot from the threads. Thanks!
