I am also new to poker. Instead of playing play money I am trying to play freerolls. In free time I try to study poker theory and mental game.

playing for conditional money does not give the same effect in learning
but if you are a beginner, then of course it will help you understand the very basics of playing the seniority of combinations and further
but it is better to start playing freerolls there, the spirit of competition is completely different

Not that I endorse Global Poker or anything but with avatars and trophies being obtainable using gold coins (play currency) the play is closer to the norm.


Also, CardsChat freerolls once you get out of bronze level are pretty good practice. They have freerolls on America's Cardroom, Black Chip Poker, BetOnline, Sportsbetting.ag, intertops, pokerstars, GGpoker, 888 poker and william hill for everyone else.

I would suggest to play freerolls instead of play money.

Good decision. But you can also practice playing freerolls and who knows if you win something important here, in freerolls you don't invest money but you can win and build your bank

i think it depends on how many play chips you are playing for. Barry greenstein once said that plating 1,000,000 play chip tourneys are pretty much like the real thing. I've found reasonably decent competition and level of play on PStars at around the 250K level.
The 50k 8game tourneys are also pretty good if you want to diversify and not just play nlhe.

freerolls are great...especially if you can negotiate the all-in donks in the early levels...but there aren't so many freerolls these days.

gl to ya :)

Hi.
I think there is simply no need for such a practice. There are a huge number of freerolls, playing in which, you can gain basic knowledge and also, if you are lucky, try to start building your own real bankroll.
Good luck.

Practice on a freeroll actually is better if you want to learn faster.

I meant not one site but at least 5 or 6. But pay attention to 888. There are a huge number of daily freerolls.

Fake money practice

I think it's like a different game so I wouldn't really bother practising my skill on fake money because the scenarios and hands you'll play and see reraly happen with real money where people actually care about their stacks.

I don't think it's a good idea. when playing with virtual money. he has no stakes and therefore no risk of losing his money. players tend to play anyhow and all-in with any hand. the best way to learn to play poker is to practice frerrolls.

Play money seems to be a poor reflection of actual play. Risk is a big part of the game. Without money there is no risk.

By learning to play freerolls, you will learn to play faster. But freerolls are not ideal for learning either. After playing for cash, you will see the difference.

Maybe not a good idea. But it can help you understand the basics of the game.

It's checked, but is it the play money of the cash game?

In that case I think it's a little significant.

About being same as playing a free roll tournament.

I would not want to be doing play money for more than a month, just long enough to learn poker basics. Then move on to real money play .

Good luck in your poker journey.

You will not learn much there except for the bare basics which if you are total beginner isn't bad.

It is totally different & does not work.. SnGs may be closer because it's more likely folks actually want to have an objective game which eventually ends..

I'd say it's a good tool for beginners in their very early stages where they're just learning hands..!

If you are starting to play with playmoney better choose games with a high buy-in, as there the game is more priblezhena to games for real money. And I advise you to choose a difficult way of learning, namely, start with heads up, so you will quickly develop an understanding of the game and the principle of correct aggression.:)

A lot of people say that it is good to play for play money at the beginning, I personally never liked to play. I always thought it was cooler to play free games and invest the winnings in sng 0.10

of course you have to study not with real money. but you should understand that play money, freerolls are a completely different poker than money poker. people are not afraid to lose play money and play bolder
