Hi there. I haven't yet played money tournaments since I don't have experience in that area and thought I should play many freerolls and learn from there. What I've noticed so far is that almost always there are a few guys at the table that don't really care playing good poker. They call my 3 or 4 bets with bad cards, they go all in all the time and end up having the better hands. I try and play like it's the world series haha, almost never go all in steadily build my chips. I don't feel like I made any progress in 2 weeks since I feel it's a more all in game and flip the coin than skill.
My question is, are money tournaments any different?
Thanks.

in my opinion in the freerolls due to the number of players, the variance becomes greater, in cash tournaments, at least the micros I play, are similar, but there are more better players.

Thanks for your answer. I can't wait to become a platinum member here and play with more experienced players who I believe that really want to play well and don't go all in all the time with rubish cards just to intimidate or without really carring if they win or lose

There are almost no any difference between freerolls and low limits tourneys. But if you play higher limits players are more skilled and better.

Freeroll tournaments are a kind of poker tournaments in which you do not need to pay an entry fee, and in most cases anyone can participate in them, while freerolls already have a guaranteed prize pool allocated by the poker room or partner site.

In freerolls you find every type of player, from absolutely newbie over testosterone overdosed battle fighters to skilled and ambitous pokerplayers who try to stand these jokers.
The highest buy in I play is $5,50, and there you still find the same types of players, but the weighing is different. When you see a 4 or 5-way hand, at least all of them have a playable hand like AK, AJs,TT and so on ,but not 25o or similar as you often find in freerolls.

Well, freerolls are not really tourneys where you can improve your game man, for the reasons you've mentioned yourself. Players just don't care since they have nothing invested. But they are still can be useful to someone with no experience at all.
Going up to the micro and low stakes does not change things that much. In those stakes, players don't like folding. They will call you down with bottom pair or any draw all the way to the river. The good news is that they'll pay you off when you make a hand. So you'll need a lot of patience. But the best advice I can give you if you decide to play those is : Never bluff.
With that said, I have to add that CC freerolls are a bit different. Once you survive the first hour or so, the game becomes much better and you can actually play some poker. That makes them the best freerolls out there in my opinion.
Good luck...

For me there is not much difference, the way the players play and their skills do not vary much from freerolls to freerolls, but when you start playing with high tournament inscriptions for sure the gameplay and the skills of the players vary a lot.

The free roll or a money tournament?

It also depends on reward.

There is also a free roll more difficult than a money tournament.

Its a whole other game.
People have the option of rebuying but the higher the stakes, more like poker the game looks like.

Except buy-in fee, freerolls have lots of people play poker as bingo game.

U will have fun from freerolls and earn some money, but it cost time, too.

If u are serious for poker, don't play freerolls too long time.
