so im just trying to get the hang of online poker and been playing predominately freerolls
But what do people do in freerolls
1/Go hard early and try to double up asap?
2/ Go slow and be patient and be the tortoise that wins the race
agree freerolls give the opportunity to see for free many situations in poker bad and good give us the opportunity to understand over time our mistakes without investing anything. just everyone decides how to play the freeroll. either play as an experienced player or simply as a child in a sandbox.Freerolls are great as they teach us a few things.
One is that the odds are just that, odds - not certainties. Since a lot of folks play anything from any position for any amount in freerolls you learn quickly that even the worst possible starting hands beat out the best possible starting hands a percentage of the time. If not for freerolls, we would rarely see these sorts of unlikely situations actually play out.
They also teach us that shoving (all-in) pre-flop pretty much turns the game of poker into a game of bingo. You shove, I shove, we all shove.
My noble friend, if one day in the future you are accepted into the CC club, you will realize that the level of the competitors are professional levels. CardsChat's freerolls are the best in the world made up of members of the CC club, and leaderboard leaders are at the top because they are the guys who make the least mistakes. There is no bluff! If you want to pay an allin with a top pair, you can be sure that the game will end for you because you will face a three of a kind, from above. So to play the CC freeroll study, study and evolve.
Bluffing is an integral part of poker. without it the game would be boring. element of deception and cunning and is the charm of this game)CC freerolls are really tough there are many strong opponents but on the other hand by no bluffing you will always be really predictable Balance is the key to success!!
To answer the main thread question here ,I play very tight at the beginning of a freeroll and I see some cheap flop only with some speculative hands in later positions in order to flop good.Don't call any two early in the tournament because it will cost you valuable chips!
If the tournament is a turbo just go fold fold and play only premiums. The above strategy works for me so far!
