I want to ask those who play only freerolls.
How much money they managed to win in a month?
You will never make a living playing only Free-rolls, but they are a great way to practice playing Poker and start a bankroll
, I have done it on several sites playing them and cashing, then start buying in to other games like SnGs and other Tournaments.
When you look at all the players that Play in a World Series game, with a $10,000 buy-in, not all of them have paid $10,000 some might have played in a $11 dollar satellite game, that leads them to another game that guarantees a seat in the World Series, You have to do your research and find the games that help you to progress and play well enough to win the seats in the first instance.
Generally the only players that will pay the full buy-in are the professional players that don't want to grind it out playing qualifying Tournaments, but it is possible.
I remember in a PSCA Event one player had won a place in the final, on-line and spent the money he made from selling his flight ticket to pay some bills he had, then when the Event got closer decided to give it a shot and had to borrow money to but a new flight ticket, and cashed in the main event, nothing spectacular but certainly enough to make it worthwhile.
Even players like Chris Moneymaker started from satellite games before they made the big leagues.
