This is a discussion on Why Fiesty and shove in Freerolls? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I do not understand why some love to shove in freerolls..., I do shove myself, after a cold deck of nothing for an hour..,but that
I do not understand why some love to shove in freerolls..., I do shove myself, after a cold deck of nothing for an hour..,but that is exception, but why do others? I don't say this to be a jerk, I am trying to understand why you shove with nothing, especially on a board with nothing that hits your cards?
I think, like many who I asked and read this all because freerolls are free and do not require special attention, especially for those who just came to unwind and enjoy the gameplay. The same behavior is observed in any other tournament.
Since it costs nothing to enter people often enter when they are doing other things like working at their job---so they enter and go allin and if they happen to win the pot they have lots of chips so when they get back to their computer after an hour or so they still have chips left--they repeat the process and get lucky again--and then after maybe 2 hours if they have chips left they are in the money and might even have time to sit down and play
It takes very little time and no money to enter a freeroll
theoretically and statistically speaking. the higher the stakes the better poker is played. meaning less mistakes and bad decisions. now low and free rolls. expect a bunch of all ins and big calls "with that?" to suck out on you. it's just nature. if they gamble and get lucky they double or triple up. if they get unlucky they are out and lose nothing, its a free roll. if the buy in was like $4,000 people would play with more caution because if they gamble by going all in and lose, then they will lose $4,000 as oppose to nothing on a free roll. it's just common sense. Also time, what 2 hours is for you it's not the same for others. same thing with money.
So something i would do with my friends when we would play a fr is have chalenges and sides bets on crazy ways to win fr and then win idividual pots as well. for instance:im in the middle of a hand and my friend says a bet you a dollar if you go allin right now you will win or you will lose and you take the side bet and do the allin or whatever the concept of the bet was. that might give you a little insite into some of the reason people are going allin so much.
Lol theres litterally a thread about this. As if the whole act wasn't annoying enough. Let's talk about it to make ourselves feel better.
Sorry I’m sure there are many threads about it, I am happy to play freerolls as I can test many theories and play with amazing people...I wonder if there is a freeroll that does not involve any bingo poker players though..I know it’s not easy to have a freeroll in general, but I’m wondering if there is a way to have an advanced one, where if you shove 72 offsuit for instance, you have to explain yourself lol (again I’m sure this idea has been brought up and I understand it’s not easy to achieve) Perhaps freeroll for money isn’t the answer but a common player(not private) game against players that want to play a sound game (not for money)
I myself play the freerolls not to gain money, but to work on craft, and (yes I shove with marginal hands at times to test bluff theories) could care less about winning money from these personally.
I do understand there has to be a balance between having fun and playing a super strat game of poker...so it is not easy to do
