I see several reasons justifying their actions: 1. Too small a win (for them) to spend their time on it 2. Really no time to play 3. They do not want to play at all 4. This tactic was chosen (according to the horoscope)

I see several reasons, among them Kamikaze has no skill to stack the game, no time to play the whole tournament, the value is low for him or is tilted for some reason ...

if the player has no time to play or finds the low prize simply do not play!

They’re tilted from previous sessions. Mostly relying on luck to save them and double up early or in their minds just get the loss out of the way

They are players, which tend to take it for fun, do not go for the jackpot prize. So should play very tight , that is my way of thinking that has to be aware of..!!!

The question you should ask yourself is why you should or shouldn't go all in yourself, what other players do is out of your control. Besides, what difference does it make if an opponent goes all in with random cards because he does not how to play, or he doesn't have the time to play, or he is tilted, or it's his strategy to play like that?

I don't know, when I have money in my account, I can't play freerolls. So the, until on this moment. Well, let's say I have $100 - $300. With $300 in the account, you can play for a prize of $0.60, of course, but it's not very interesting. Therefore, people take risks without risking that would accumulate a large stack and compete for $20 or $19 or not to waste time and go look for profits elsewhere. I know when I have money in my account, I take more risks, especially with all-ins. So that's the way it is. Conversely, when I have $0, I will sit until the last and wait only for good hands that would at least grab $0.60.

The answer is in your question, Free.
They are not interested in playing poker, just hoping to get lucky right out of the gate. Most settle down after the first 5 or so levels others continue this type of play until they are knocked out with regard to how it affects other players. It is all part of free-rolls, accept it and play accordingly.

I think that they do this because they might not have enough time to play in the tournament.

Because most of them are really fish and don´t have to pay any buy in..Just be patient with them and play tight.

Because in freerolls plays a lot of people, and some players are trying to double or triple your Bank from the start, well, if you lose, in principle, nothing is lost

Very helpful answer to a member's question... That's why it's so helpful to have "poker experts" and "coaches" in the CC community...

Curiously, there's players like this here in Cardchat aswell ...

This.

I do not understand why, if I look from a common sense perspective –but, I hate to say, I think that’s a waste of time. It is what it is, and people are often not even attempting to play their ‘A’game (if they have one).

It has surprised and disappointed me that freerolls of higher caliber are also hit and miss - they often feature similar behavior. A slew of all ins leads to other players making ludicrous preflop raises, followed by even more farcical raises post flop as they whiff- in other words the play degenerates into a sort of increasingly desperate farce.

I take the game seriously and erroneously project that onto others- that everyone is excited and focused to sit down and play. They aren’t.

Steal blinds is one reason or to double up possibly, I notice some of the newer players try to bulldoz their way through the freerolls,

In my opinion it is because they are not very skilled at the fame and it is a free buy in. Some players are just looking to get lucky and build a chip stack the only way they know how, and that is to gamble it up. I wouldn't worry about these players as there play usually bites them in the ass sooner than later. Just play a good game of poker and you will be fine against these types.

Hello.
This is because these players are losers. They think that it is impossible to win freerolls and that any freeroll is roulette, so they usually go all in.
