Hello all, I’m new to the site and a fairly new poker player. I was hoping to find out what is the best strategy for success while playing freerolls. I have noticed that at first, a lot of people play really loose and call with anything hoping to get lucky. Would the best strategy be to play tight and face off against one of these loose players with a strong hand? If anyone can give me a few pointers as well that would be great.

Different people play freerolls. If you watch the table, you can choose the best strategy against each opponent.

Better to get against one early with the best hand and hope for the best. It's easier to keep those chips in freerolls than regular tourneys.

You already answered your own question. And play more relaxed.

I believe to make a bankroll from freroll tournaments you has to be extremely lucky , this tournaments normally are turbo or super turbo that’s mean the blinds going up quick so you can be folding most of the time your hands you has to play aggressively Try to win whit the best hand and you don’t have the best hand cross fingers the made the best and win. Go on the tables

There is no real strategy, it depends on the table, the players but being tight can be a good freeroll strategy

Hello, you have to play freerolls worth no attempt many bluffs, because being a free tournament players pay for more, and they donot care about losing.

Just keep playing and pay attention, what works for others may not work for you. Learn by doing, Best advice if you are just starting, learn about position and follow it religiously until you think you know better, we all do hahahaha.

Best strategy in some freerolls is to join in the very last minute of late registration and then start ultimate timewasting in order to finish ITM :cool:
This usually works perfectly in 888 for example ;)

other than something like the cardschat freeroll, which isnt really a freeroll if you think about the work you need to put in to get admitted to the csfr. other than that you need to just practice everything all decent players have, patience. keep in mind your position at the table and when you have a big hand just try and get teh chips in the middle early.

I did exactly that in lvl 30 today. Although sometimes this method doesn't work sadly ...
And in these daily lvl 5 tournaments usually just registration is enough to win min cash(i do that basically every day now and this month i've won 2-6 cents few times while sitting out entire tournament)

I have had the most success with shoving big pairs AA KK QQ and AK you will always get one or two callers early in the tournament. Hopefully you triple up and can play more standard after that being one of the larger stacks at the table.

The best freeroll strategy is to always stay patient and only play with strong cards.

Good night! Yes it's true the problem that looses has many sorts is always end up giving bad beat it appears that the software always helps those who have more chips or who is more aggressive at the tables unfortunately :(

you'll get shovers at your table in every freeroll. wait for your spot and call. you'll win the majority of the time and you'll lose a small percentage with any 2 cards your opponent holds.

It's very true that you will almost always get callers with big hands in freeroll tournaments, particularly during the early rounds. The challenge is to get past the early rounds, so you can actually start playing some real poker, especially if you believe that you're a much better player than most of the field. To that end, I think the best strategy, especially in terms of time management, is to be very aggressive during the early blind periods and try to force the issue. If you lose, at least you're not going to invest anymore time, which is the real hidden cost of freeroll tournaments.

Freerolls are the best option for those who want to learn and improve in poker. I believe you have a lot to learn in daily practice and practice.

I try to late register in most freerolls, hoping that those who went all in with gambling hands have busted already. I've already had aces cracked by 6-7 suited all in preflop. That way it's easier to put players on hand ranges.
