This is a discussion on Freerolling within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Well did a lot of freerolling today
Play around 10 of them
Up a whole$ 1.85. Going to be dead before am rich at this rate
A few weeks ago I played a $100 freeroll and I actually a. The next day I decided to play a $10 buy in. There were 147 players in that one and I'm not kidding you I finished second in that one too. I made another $485. I consider myself an ok player but definitely not a really good on. I just hit a streak were everything went my way and it lasted three straight tournaments. I've been playing tournaments here and there since then and I think I made 3 final tables and got in the money a few times. Long story short is that the $100 freeroll has turned into a $1,900 bankroll.
Looks like you had a decent run, making a dollar and change is great for free-rolls.
Hopefully your sites free-rolls stay up, some sites the freebies are hit and miss; here today
down tomorrow. When you can't play freerolls, seems like you appreciate them more.
If you think there will be a steady income stream from freerolls then you need to re-evaluate ... they're fantastic for taking the risk out for very casual players with no real aspiration to go pro .. also a good learning platform for those who do want to play more seriously
You should be happy that you are playing and not risking anything. If you want to win large money then you will have to risks and play tournaments with a buy in. Otherwise, you can use the freeroll approach to slowly build a roll and then use that roll on buy in tournaments to try and make larger sums. Think of freerolls as free satellites that take longer to earn the seat. You eventually will get to the tournament you want to play in and you didnt have to risk any money to get there.
freeroll tournaments are good for beginners and for practicing some strategy, when to play when to throw cards, but also for relaxed play, because if you fall out you have not lost anything .. too bad they are much more every day, there are very few ....
Its is quite good form to learn the game, also build a little by little your stack witch can be used in other tournaments. Winning one tour from 5 bucks will be a amazing reward for your learning process from the freerolls. Like old people say everything that comes fast is spent fast, so you are on the good road my friend. Good luck
