I think, its a bit of an overplay to raise the flop with AJ. You are 100BB deep in a single raised pot, and then its anything but standard to stack off with just a single pair. I know, his donk bet was kind of small, but even so I still prefer to just call and control the size of the pot. As played the turn card doomed you.

Well, I will pass on my vision of the game !!

As it is a freeroll, betting 3x at the beginning of the game has no effect on any player, as we can see the 45s villain paying 3x.

Since you wanted to enter the pot, you should have placed 150 or more chips (this is not the standard of play, plus 60 chips does not exclude opponents).

Villain BB was right to call because he already had 2 people in the pot, he had to use only 2% of his chips to see the flop. it turned out that an order came out
of sequence for him.

On the flop I think your move is correct, 3bet on the opponent, the villains with call will always call because they have nothing to lose unfortunately it ended up being bad for you.

I think it was nice bet on flop, about 30%. Really for freeroll 2 calls means nothing. But for Axx board it means Ax, or good draw(s). Both 2 diamonds and draw cards in BB call range.
You should surrender on turn, or stop putting money in a bank

Exactly. I lose sometimes a lot of chips at the start of the freeroll when the blinds are small because I get good hands, I 3x raise preflop and even if I make a top pair or 2 pairs, I lose to some random hand that made a flush or straight. Even in a freeroll I don't call to a 3x raise preflop with very bad cards, I respect the raise, but too many people call with anything since it's still cheap. And the most ennoying part is when you have 4 or 5 limpers behind you, you make a more then a 4BB raise to try and get rid of some and all the limpers call. Like what the hell??? You limp and then you call tu such a raise.

888 freerolls are just gambling, you have to be lucky
most of them are 3 min blind levels, a lot of 1 min blind levels
and the software is "slow", if everyone folds, it takes 1 minute per hand
so, 1-3 hands per blind level in a full ring format
examples: 1000 daily spring --> 1 min blind
5000 daily spring --> 3 min blind

Yes ! hehehehe! The 888 players, mostly limpers, change a little on other sites, even in freerolls.

is true! That's what structures are for! but I already played some micros and I don't like the field very much.

yeah, micro stakes sucks
you have AK in UTG, raise 2x and face 5 calls plus BB defense
people calling with any shit,
very hard to read, villains calling with 75o and hitting 2pair/ straigh
BUT BUT
it is only in early stages, in that stages i opt to play only AQ+ with big raises (AQ AK KK AA QQ JJ) and BvB with reasonable hands
And be carreful with those hands
but in mid/late stages the remaining players are reasonable good, it becomes nice to play

Then raise larger. 6x - or more. You will eventually find a number limpers are allergic too. :)

Yes, it is a good strategy. really in the late game the game gets better. I usually win tournaments that enter late registration
