I play a lot of freerolls, from 4,000 to 5,000 people I occupy 100-600 places))) is this not a bad result, experience, or am I just losing time?)

Stick with it, at that ammount of people the variance is huge so it may take a while to get a decent scores. Try ACR they have less people in there freerolls.

It depends on the time you have to dedicate. The odds of you reaching a final table with that many players is very low and the prize is never justified in relation to the work, but for experience it is useful.

If you manage to cash in one of them then you can build your bankroll. Keep it up!

If you don't have any experience with real money tournaments it can actually be a little disorientating if you ever do make a cross over. Freerolls play so different that without having any comparison you could run the risk of not adjusting. Things like hand values, bet amounts, lay-downs, hero calls, or even table image are very different.


If you do play a bunch of freerolls and then opt into a real money MMT, just be aware that the experience you bring may need to be adjusted for best results.

I find it very interesting to play freerolls to perfect yourself in poker and to make up for the loss with rake. in addition there are freerolls with prizes even bigger than paid tournaments, which is very good.

Started 1 month ago to play freerolls and Im still learning. Since then Ive made a small bankroll which is a good sign. For example, you can play a lot of freerolls on 888 including those from CardsChat. Earn tickets to bigger tournaments and you can build a nice bankroll! Good luck and dont forget, patience is the key :)

If you are just starting out Freerolls are the ticket. You learn to play and hopefully start a Bankroll... They are really tough though because anyone who knows knows FR are a Donkinfested tourneys. They are hard to get to the money because of such. Use them as learning tools and improving.

Freerolls are a great way to try gambling without risking money. Do not rush to give your bankroll to regulars high stakes. It is necessary to soberly assess your skills and climb the limits gradually.

Freerolls are tricky because there is nothing to lose . If u stick with it and play smart early in freerolls until all the loose players are gone u can build your bankroll. Good luck in your future freerolls.

Play on micro limits. For me, it's a waste of time.

For me, this is a good option. I do not want to invest until I am sure that I will have more chances to make a profit. Yes, precious time, but this is offset by experience.

Playing in such freerolls where 5000+ people and prizes totaling $ 50-100 is just a waste of time and nothing more ...

Different game at the start, completely banzai throwing chips in like confetti but if your solid enough and happy to sit and learn I can't see any issue playing them, personally I like 888 as the further up the levels you go the more poker club games you get and prizes are pretty good tbf.

It's all learning so any game is good as long as you respect it.

I play a lot of freerolls, from 4,000 to 5,000 people I occupy 100-600 places))) is this not a bad result, experience, or am I just losing time?)

It's good experience but only if you are able to get to a later stage of the freeroll.

Playing many freerolls is good for learning and gaining experience for future tournaments, I very rarely play freerolls with a large number of players from 2000-5000 participants because it’s very hard to get to the prize area and get prizes because there are so many in these freerolls -fish, it's normal for me to play well and participate in freerolls with a small number of players who already have experience in the game!

When I play a Freeroll tournament for 2 hours (ACR on demand) and don't make the money, I feel like I wasted a huge amount of time. But now I play them less, and when I do, I pay little attention to them, so when I bust out I don't mind since I haven't invested much time to them.

Other Freerolls with better payout structures are awesome though! :D :D

I think so. The Freeroll game is like the same microlimits to play. Wherever if you play freerolls or $3,50 of buy-in, 'cause the way that the game is playing, is almost the same. So this is a particulare choice. I prefered play freerolls to practic and sometimes I play in the money a litlle bit.
(sorry my bad English hehe)
