I just started playing on poker.com and noticed thier freeroll sit n goes.

Its a 3 tier system.

if you go onto thier website, on the home screen scroll down to play money on the left hand side, click play money and there will be a link button saying to trade 100$ play money for a funstep1 coupon.

Tier 1 : (FUNSTEP1) 6 person sng - winner receives a FUNSTEP2 coupon

Tier 2 : (FUNSTEP2) 6 person sng - winner receives a FUNSTEP3 coupon

Tier 3 : (FUNSTEP3) 10 person sng - winner receives 1$ real money.

sure its not much but it adds a little fun and hey 300 wins =100$

being around the holiday season, my poker fund is seeming low, i am thinking of a new personal challenge to see how long it will take me to earn 100$ this way.

PS. they aren't very difficult and step 1 and 2 take no longer than 15-20 minutes


GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS

if anyone is interested in trying it out let me know, would be cool to play with a fellow CC'er for the big 1$ cash prize....

That's pretty cool. I wish they had that deal/that I knew about it back in the day when I was a freeroller. I freerolled at pokerstars which I didn't realize at the time was a tremendous mistake because you have to make top 27 out of like thousands of people just to make it to the second round where you actually have a chance to win (a very small amount of) money! Yuck. Anyway, good luck with your challenge!

Tropical has freeroll sit-n-go's for .10/.20 prize pools. Pretty worthless but I started my BR on there with a .35 freeroll prize :D

Just so you know the average number of these you will have to play to get $100.

Assuming you have no edge or disadvantage against the field (flawed assumption as you’re doubtless better than 90% of the people who will be playing these, but let’s go with it).

5/6 = 0.83 chance of losing SNG #1 and not winning having played 1 SNG.
1/6 * 5/6 = 0.139 chance of winning SNG #1 and losing SNG #2 and not winning having played 2 SNGs.
1/6 * 1/6 * 9/10 = 0.025 chance of winning SNGs #1 and #2 and losing SNG #3 and not winning having played 3 SNGs.

Total = 0.994 chance of not winning in a ‘run’, so 0.006 chance of winning.

On an average ‘run’ you will play (0.83*1)+(0.139*2)+(0.025*3)+(0.006*3) = 0.83 + 0.278 + 0.075 + 0.018 = 1.201 SNGs

0.006 chance of you winning so...

1.201 / 0.006 = avg 200 SNGs (rounding) to win $1.

Obviously then we can say avg 20,000 SNGs to win $100, or an average EV of $0.005 per SNG (obviously the level 3 SNGs have more EV then the level 2 SNGs which have more EV than the level 1 SNGs).

Have fun!

The electricity cost of running your computer for 3 SnG's is probably more than $1. get a paper round or wash cars if you're that short of dough.

I was just playing one of these freeroll sit ang goes on poker.com ..

and the weirdest thing happened...

as it got to heads up i was at 5000 chips and other player was at 1000 chips roughly.. (this was round 2)

then all of a sudden, it made me sit out.. and i could see my cards and blinds being posted, and when i clicked sit in it would look normal until it got to my turn, and then fold and make me sit out again, and it did so until i was eaten away by the blinds..

I could even type stuff... i could everything EXCEPT play... :(

Ive finally made it to my first round 3 :)

In round 3 people were playing tight, so i capitalized on it, and got up in chips early.. short stacks started pushing so i began to play tight, final 4 i was 3rd in chips not too far from guy in 2nd

Stole some blinds, got my chip stack 3000, on a table with 10k on it

Down to 3 people, which quickly ended when someone tried to steal blinds with 10 6 and got caught by JJ

Heads up.. im at 4k hes at 6k
i get 66 in SB so i push, he calls with A 7 off and flop comes A 9 7 turn and river gave me no help..

2nd gets nothing :(
Ohhh well...
