I don't see any difference between Freebuy or Freeroll... If you are playing to earn a couple of dollars or a few cents, maybe this is important. But to understand poker or improve your skills and abilities, it's strange to enter the bubble game :)

Avoiding the early stage or being afraid of it means, that you do not know, how to pass this important stage of the tournament well, because at the initial stage there are a lot of opportunities to build and develop your bank for the later stages and the entire tournament as a whole. Of course, playing freerolls at the start is a nightmare and a horror, but even in these crazy tournaments, the initial stage has its plus and advantages, and if you learn, how to use them correctly, you will get a very lot and you will see, how cool feelings you can get, when you quickly and easily pass the start and get an advantage right away! :)

I think, it's right to choose a full-fledged start and all the options of the game at the beginning :)

I prefer free rolls all though I do agree free buys can be a great way to qualify for bigger tournaments cheaply. Buyingthe add on usually gives me a massive advantage on most of the field.

A lot will rebuy sometimes pay more than they couldwin which isnt good logic imho but the poker site wins.

I first had an opportunity to play a Freebuy during the series ACR promoted this year.

At first I thought that a crazy concept (field over 1200 players and the early stages similar to any other Freeroll with the maniacs).

But then, knowing that on these the payouts are usually much higher than freerolls, I would definetely play them a lot.

I do not re-buy or do any Add-ons though. It has been a challenge to get to the FT without doing it. But it depends on the player.

Eu considero os freerolls uma das opções mais lucrativas para começar uma carreira no poker. Afinal, você pode desfrutar do jogo sem nenhum risco.

I like freerolls more because you can try different strategies in them and there is an opportunity to earn money without investing your money.

I like freerolls so much, and whenever I see a freebuy tournamen and have a bit of time I also jump into that. But I'm not even considering add-ons or rebuys. If I'm lucky enough to get through the 'gambling phase' I'm more than happy but won't invest in a rebuy just so I can gamble it again two minutes later for another 5 shoves.

Btw, what is this ACR, many of you talk about?
