Hi All

Does anyone here have any success stories with these?

1K starting stack, 3min blinds. I think luck plays a huge part especially at beginning as you have to stack up as quickly as you can before your blinded out.

Entered one last night, prize was 50 seats into next sat which had prize of 20 seats into a 150k gtd tourney. Seemed the best one I seen so far and I think it runs every Sunday too.

I sometimes enter them frequently when I’m bored, I got 1st place in one the other day but went out 17/25 in the second round. Very difficult to play these and go far lol

I took part in a similar tournament structure. The blinds are growing very fast. I don't like it. Nevertheless, I managed to get into the top 8 thanks to the patience and perseverance of 250 participants. The next tournament was canceled and we were just given tickets for $11.

For these tournaments, it doesn't hurt if you have $0.11 in your account because at the end of the rebuy period, you can do an add-on for that amount, which is 50k chips, and without that, you are at a big disadvantage compared to the others, even if you manage to collect up to 70k chips, I think.

Very true, I’ve only made it without an add on once, but I never add on or rebuy these free rolls, I’d rather put the money into an actual buy in, just my preference lol if I go far great but no biggie if not.

Best results of pokerstars freerolls where the PCA qualifiers for me.
3 times final table and one of them 1st place

Yes this is very true and I only realised this on Sunday when I reached the end of rebuys. I was on 40k chips so for 11cent l would have definitely added on.
Ended up finishing just 30 places away from getting a seat. If I had of got that 50k add on, I think I might have just made it

such tournaments really depend on luck if a cool hand comes right away, you can break away and then put pressure on other opponents with your steak and win such tournaments, I think this strategy will work cool there

I only managed to get a ticket once in a tournament for 25 places, but I don’t give up

Hello!
I used to play these freerolls, but then I realized that I was wasting my time, because it all depends on luck.
However, a few times I was still lucky, and I was able to pass to the next level)

People don't appreciate free chips and lots of losses with a good hand like 52o

Only once I win a sat , but I failed on the target sat to get the ticket for the next phase , that was frustrating . They are free , so no worries , if you play other games at the same time , why not open these games as well , at least for the free rakeback :)

when I have time I start these freerolls, so far with little success. However, I think it's a good option.

Yes It's Bingo Poker until the end of rebuy phase.
But I dare to say my 6 FT in PCA freerolls are not because of pure luck...

Same here.. won the PCA freerolls 2 times.
First time in the 55$ seat I won I had a massive cooler , lost with nuts against Runner Runner full house,
Second time tournament was cancelled due to too few participants 🙄

Well if it was cancelled , maybe it wasn't so bad, I guess they refunded you with $T , right ?? If yes , then it's better :)

Hi everyone

Does anyone here have success stories with them?

The starting stack is 1K, the blinds are 3 minutes. I think luck plays a huge role, especially at the beginning, as you have to collect stacks as quickly as possible before your blind out.

We took part in one of them last night, and the prize was 50 seats in the next site, which won 20 seats in the tournament with a guarantee of $150,000. It seemed like the best I've ever seen and I think it takes place every Sunday.
I play sometimes, but I rarely win. It's just luck. A game of luck)

They are disgusting, a total carnage of people who want to go far and make money without 1 idea of how to play each hand. I would never play them again.
