Hi, sounds like you were doing great, and yes there are times you don't like getting medium-good hands , of course if your short you love it , aces getting cracked sucks, keep it up though, inevitably we will win ;)

That’s happening to me on partypoker almost every time. I played lots of tournaments there and lose with a better hands, like AA,KK,QQ,AK, lots of bad beats on the river. I’m not all in freak, but when you have that kind of hands what else you can do. So something strange happening there.

Was in finished second level $.35
Hi, nice , hope you do better next time, this field seemed bigger than last time, however my notes may not have reflected the numbers last time, and some guys were buying in right at the last level for 5k (double buy ) so i think making the money was good, those blinds were killer at the end, 1k/2k or worse , I forgot to check (laptop drama) ,

Hi , I sympathise on what's happening with you, not sure what you can do,
Maybe try another poker site with the same tournament? I guess we question the poker software (algorithm ) or we question the players (crying calls) , the thing is you'll probably meet same players elsewhere, so who knows? Maybe some other members have some advice ;)

I play online and live poker, and I sawed lots of bad beats, it’s almost the same, it’s not crying, just bad beats happens there more than anywhere else, not just to me.

Those are realy long tourneys for small rewards... :(

This is true, but sometimes people just like to play without much risk. For me in traveling and in n out of airports and hostels, so if something happens all of the sudden, I never feel bad for shutting it off.

I really wanted to play this since it had a $100 GTD, but I had a deep run in the 10k GTD so I didn't want to have multiple tables open. There's always next week I guess.
These freerolls are the hardest to make money and have low payouts but its good poker experience.

I completely agree. Freerolls give you so much experience and information on the microstakes pool. Even if you don't cash, I think grinding them is extremely important for new players who don't want to constantly reload while learning.
