I play freerolls, MTT and SNG depending on the mood
I play freerolls, MTT and SNG depending on the mood. In each of these tournaments there are many pluses and many minuses. I really do not like Heads Up and Spin and Go, I always lose in these tournaments. In order to better play, install Holdem Manager, as you advised. This is a very useful program that will help you to better know opponents and will give an opportunity to analyze your game.

First and foremost, learn to fold. Learn patience! I personally can't stress this enough - learn to fold (especially if you didn't join latereg)

practice and practice. Also play as many freerolls as you can. Once you in the money a few times in a row then you know you good.

Been taking it a little more serious i wish to profit not make a living but be nice for the balance to grow even pennies at time, watched some pros advice and i now sit with these notes in front of me, hope these help anyone. (phil hellmuth and annie duke advice)
DONT OVERESTIMATE SUITED CONNECTORS, PLAY POSITION AND FOLD MORE WHEN OUT OF POSITION, PEOPLE TO KEEN TO PLAY THEM.
TURN IS IMPORTANT CARD AND A RAISE ON TURN CAN SHOW STRENGTH OF A HAND.
BE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND TAKE MORE RISK WITH TOP HANDS, FOLD THE FLOP IF GOES WRONG.
POSITION IS IMPORTANT,
EARLY PLAY STRONG HANDS AA AK KK AQ QQ
MIDDLE PLAY KJ KQ 99 88
LATE PLAY WEAKER HANDS IF PEOPLE HAVE FOLDED BUT BE WARY OF ANY RAISE ON BLINDS
ALWAYS QUESTION RAISES BY TABLE POSITION OF OPPONENT, IS PLAYER BEING AGGRESSIVE, LOOSE OR ARE THEY CHIP LEADER AND BULLYING.
Hope these help anyone learning they make so much sense and been helping me improve, never envy or be jealous of the best they are teachers you learn form and dont be afraid to lose and we all get bad beats at poker and in life

The good thing about freerolls is that you do not invest money.
If you're new to poker, you can see some videos on youtube on hand range, positions, type of villains, pre and post flop play, etc.
And when you manage to win a few bucks and have a good bank, the best advice I can give you, it is the bank hand.

you must play safe and with a lot of patience, do not risk in an indescribable way, follow your instinct but safely, try to make a good reading of your opponents, that will help you a lot to make difficult decisions

The best tip I can give you probably is: trail and error your hands. When I started to play Poker, I was always thinking about "oh my bankroll is going down" and "I need better hands to win the game". But after a few months, I started to realise that playing poker is about trail and error.
Just try out the game, play some hands you are not doing now and look how they work-out. Starting people are so tight in playing their games, that they can open up their range.

I play tournaments in a tight aggressive style steal blinds always when there is an opportunity with good positions and learn how to throw good starting hands.

Play tight in early stages, try to not fall in love with suited connectors or low pairs too much. Know how to play your positions, and observe your table. Are they playing tight, aggressive? Do they fold on almost every 3 bet, or are they like calling stations?
Ultimately, you must be willing to wait for premium hands early on. Hands like J/10 or Q/K suited will get you into a lot of trouble, especially if some players shove with KK/AA, or if you flop top pair, but a few people have raised preflop or called ahead of you. Also don't be afraid to bluff, as that will allow you to get some extra chips in from a dry board.
Don't open limp, and don't raise preflop UTG with a weak hand like A/7 suited. Poker is all about patience, variance, and luck/skill. When you get extremely short stacked in late games, you must try to shove with the best hand you can possibly get, before you get under 10 BB's.

I think a good tip is to see more flops. People play WAY too tight as they learn to play. While this is certainly a way to retain your chips, its not a way to build your stack. Often what will happen is you are going to have problems around the bubble. Learn to play tight but also learn when to slowly start opening your range as the blinds grow so you don't suffocate your stack.

Must learn to play with 10-20 bb stacks and learn push fold strat. You will spend a lot of time in mtts playing with stacks between these bb levels. So learning the ranges to squeeze the most EV out of every situation is critical. While these ranges are not the "optimal" way to play always, it shows what ranges are always profitable to shove which = better than folding. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...hl=en_US#gid=3

Be patient. Watch what players bluff a lot and open a lot of hands would be my starting points.

Paying attention and patience are a couple of your main goals to start. As the tournament progresses you need to pick your spots and throw in some aggressive moves to build a larger chip stack. Try to keep your chip stack at average until the late stages or closer to the bubble. Then you need to make the moves on the short stacks at the table, do not let them limp in if you can help it.
