Nope those freerolls should be used as learning. Not much else. It's a Donk infested tourney.

right , idk if there's a correct strategy , mine is to slowly grind my stack and get to the bubble, those that only pay FT are crap shoots the only way i've ever made it and seen others are surviving coin flips but good luck on that...3 x today aces beat by oddball hands and they were the pre shoves...if u just want to play just to play they're good time fillers

Freerolls are like a wild animal that can't really be tamed. Even the most highly skilled player is going to be forced to lower the level of their game. Between the fish, lagtards and agro-donks you'll find yourself put in spots that you would normally avoid. There's only so many times you can lay down pocket tens because three players have already gone all-in in front of you, only to see them turning over nonsensical, miniscule ass hands before you give up and start coin flipping with them.

So far what I've found is to just wait for those best hands to come up and play for them, if you get a hit on them your chances of winning would be higher. Any games where you start off weak just fold em and be patient ... only play strong hands. This helps eliminate loses.

It is a waste of time if there are 10 payouts and 1000 or more players. Look for tourneys that pay 10 percent or more of the entrants, and 20 percent of players getting paid in the money shiuld be the norm.

Ideally too, the last place in the money should pay over a dollar, you want your time to be worth something after all..

Hello !!! Yeah, freerolls are like that anywhere you play. When someone doesn't have any risk (Not having to come up with a buy-in), it's a crapshoot. I hope you have a great rest of your year. Take care, and have a great day :cool:

Freerolls are just the first step to learning the game:)

Pick your spots, call the donks wisely, and hope for the best. Over time, you will do well even in those tourneys if you go in with the best cards.
