i took part in a lot of freeroll tournaments in the noble poker room.
such as 100$ free ;200$ re-buy and etc.
i found that the "sit-out" is a very good idea in the first 10 minutes
i found that the system often gives several big hands to the players on the same table!
the dealer will deal AA and KK or QQ and JJ to the players . i think everybody who gets the pockets will want to all in to make a huge win, but it is a TRAP! KK is not a bad hand ,but the AA is waiting for you.
AA is very good but sometimes maybe lost ,just because one K sometimes come out in the flop and meet the KK .
SO , i often sit-out for 10 minutes ,then come in the room to avoid the risks.
what do you think about it ?

I'm appalled. What sites are you referring to? They should be reported to...Well, to somebody dammit! They actually deal action cards to trap you? and only in the first 10 minutes? Al Quaida is behind this for sure.

lol dont sit out, but play only premium hands. my advice for early play is dont call all in pre-flop(hardly even do it late unless im short stacked) as you will get some callers and probally drawn out on.

if u sit out and let someone else get a big chip stack, then it will be hard for you to get a good finish, and plus your blinds will be eaten, and especialy in a site like poker.com, the blinds in the freeroll go up super fast, so i think it is a bad tidea to sit out.

And here's the rigged game theory again. Didn't u see the game where the woman got AA, the guy got AQ and the announcer got 10-10 the first hand? (aren't I great with names? oh! Mike Sexton's the announcer, Mimi Tran was the woman). then Sexton had pocket 10s again the second hand. Then Doyle floped quad 10s a few hands later? Happens in poker.

Though i do sometimes do sit out the first few minutes to avoid the all-in idiots. Though it wasn't so bad at the Noble freeroll. Guess that's cause everyone was from here:rolleyes: .

About the only time that it's worthwhile to sit out is if there are more than 1000 players in tourney otherwise just sit watch and wait. That first ten minutes will tell you alot about your table

I never agree with sitting out when you can be at your computer playing. For reasonble cercumstances I guess it can slide but at the least have the respect to sit there and fold every hand

sitting out? i hope thats a joke. No legit poker site is going to 'give' out big hands early in a tourney. it "Should" all be just as random as if you were dealing yourself. Sit-in, play your hands.
