I think the software online lets everyone win. Who has played freerolls for a long period of time with no tourney wins?

freerolls open to many people count on players of all skill levels.

In these cases some absurd moves may give the impression that the game has some problem, when in fact the fault is the way the players are participating.

Try to observe how players play freerolls and games of medium values, you will see that there is a whole strategy and way of playing specific to each type of game.

do you think that after your victory... the room software will not give you a better chance to win soon? Do you think that there is a distribution of victories in the room for all participants?
you are mistaken in this... there is no such thing in the rooms...
I personally have not seen this...
good luck in winning)))

My latest success on freerolls was a "Level up" freeroll on 888.
I won the first price 29,50 $ a month ago.
I participated in 5 freerolls that evening and was only successful in the "Level up".

I absolutely do not think the software is designed to beneficially weight a player who has not won a freeroll. It's up to that individual to win his freeroll.

On freerolls, I raised somewhere around $ 1 over the past week, this is a normal result for me.

I've had about a 10% chance of getting to the final table.


I'd recommend being very tight in the beginning.



Another Idea:
Going "all-in" in the beginning, when you have about 4x your stack (regardless of your cards). Winning that pot may give you enough chips to survive until play normalizes. In this instance, you minimize your time investment and can survive a few bad beats

It´s no differences in software if you play Freeroll or buy in for $10 000 but there are big difference how people play.
Have win 1 free in the last 2 months :)

Good luck at the table

I want the players that haven't won to get in the conversation. The question is, has anyone played tourneys for a few months and never made a final table or won a tournament?

You have to be playing pretty poorly to not ever win one if you have been playing them consistently for months. The issue that someone is facing that is encountering this problem is most likely over aggressive play.

I dont think they just hook people up so everyone wins. I feel I win/cash more than the average players.

I am talking about ARC. So far it looks like everyone makes final tables.

You may have to learn about position, strength of pot and value bets, poker online is variance. Patience is key so that you don't over play throughout the tourney, ect. Experience and practice. GL!!

I've had periods where the cards just don't come for days. I win something small in a freeroll almost every day. As far as software "letting" people win, it's just not true. If that were a fact there would be no players at the site and a business with no players is not a business at all. You got to look at the way you play and adjust to win I think.

Well from the posts so far they have proven my thought that everyone wins or comes close to winning online freerolls. I win regularly also as do everyone else I talk to about this. I want to here from the people that cant win freerolls.

dude, freerolls are tough! people go nuts all in right away... so many times in the first couple blind levels i have had someone shove and i almost didn't call with a hand like AK off... but then i do and they have like 94off, (doesn't mean that my ak still prevails, but people are cray in freerolls).

I think that MTT poker works like you described above. You can't ''eliminate'' the luck factor because in every MTT there are spots you must flip. MTT gives the chance for everyone to be the winner.

You will see many times some weak players make it to the FT with poor skills. But this is how MTT works no matter the buy in.If you have edge you will be able to reduce the luck factor but you can't remove it entirely from poker.

I play poorly and am over aggressive. I know nothing about Poker, but enjoy playing. I can finish in the top 10% sometimes, but only when I want to & other people let me. I like going all in with sorry hands just to see what happens. If I win anything, it's an accident. My little ol' brain can not hold all the knowledge I see from the other members here. I feel fortunate to play against all you folks. I wish I was as smart. Have a great game, stay ambitious and you might win sometimes like I do.
