UltimateBet Freerolls

So I have been playing on UltimateBet for about a month now, and started with the freerolls....couldn't bear to put money down when I hadn't had that much online tournament experience. My first couple were awful, then slowly I started playing longer and longer, getting closer and closer to the final table.

Finally, Wed. March 23, I entered a bonus dollar tournament at 11am (New Orleans time). I wasn't taking it tooo tooo seriously, chatting with a few of the other players, folding most hands, but playing killer hands. After a few hours, I checked the tournament lobby and realized that we had gone from 2500 players, to about 100. Players were already getting payouts (Bonus Dollar) and I saw that I was ranked about 50. So I turned the chat off and got to business.

I made it to the final table for the first time in an online tournament. I had about a half million in chips when the play started at the final table and I managed to finish 4th place. It was sooo exciting and then I started thinking...well why not try real money. So I put in a dollar for a real money tournament and placed 31st winning $5.

No real point to the story, but I have read most of the poker strategies and I use them all in context as well as my instinct. I just wanted to share my relativly puny success with the forum...I'll let you know if I ever win some big money. But this is a good start.

If anyones interested, I play under the alias "Moocka" on Ultimatebet...couldn't get any money deposited on the "Aly Mudd" account...

That's great... a lot of people start off their poker playing "careers" by winning a small amount in a freeroll and then slowly building up a bankroll.

You've passed a critical point, a lot of people play freerolls on many sites, because they can't/won't deposit and just want to win the tinyest amount that'll enter them into the world of real money poker.

I play in the freerolls because I like to play poker. With a family of 6, not much money left over for gambling...lol. If/when I win money in freerolls to use on real tables, cool. Otherwise I will have to just practice on freerolls until I am good enough to win the wsop.....someday....

I also play at Ultimate bet alymudd, I like playing freerolls, and have finished 30th tops. I started out just like you, with my first couple of freerolls being terrible, then I started getting better. I haven't played any real money tables yet but hopefully soon.

UB Freerolls are funny....the hardest one to play is the 5,000 UB pts, then the TEC, and then $500.. ive finished highest in second place for each one.

just waiting for them to add a real $ freeroll

bpazjr13...i agree with you there...usually anythime i play one, it takes a good hour before any real poker is being played...i don't know if it is people who sign up at work and then get nervous about bosses and such or what...But depending on how the tables are playing determines how i play in turn. If everyone is going all in with crap cards off the bat, i usually stay out of the way (pre-flop), unless i have pocket A or K, or AK. But pre-flop, it is safer to just hang back and let the others go out. As for real money, I mainly play $1 sng's or the nightly 10:20pm $1 tourney. Most I've won in the dollar tourney was $5..which is the same payout as a sng, minus the .10.

Sorry but UB has to have the worst freerolls I've ever played! 12 bucks first place for beating 4999 people? of course that gets you into the 1000 weekly freeroll if you place but sometimes I just don't feel like wasting 5 hrs for 10 dollars, I'm currently doing the bodog freerolls cause they're 500 bucks 120 for first and a lot less players go check it out!

I'm w/ jheated - don't care for ultimatebet's freerolls so much...I have never tried bodog - will have to check it out. My fav's are players only & wsex. But - when I sit down to play - if UB is having a FR starting when I want to play - I'll get in it - don't get me wrong... Started @ PStars, but 10,000 person field just takes soooo long. I just like the $ prize pool at the others...and they go much quicker. GL everyone!

I also don't like the freerolls on UB. I have accumulated a nice (very small) bankroll from playing freerolls, so I have just recently started playing real money tourneys and S&Gs. I stick to the Micro Stakes for now. It took me a long time to accumulate my bankroll. I don't what to blow it all on one or two tourneys.
