If you are in the US:  You should look into sites like BetFred and King Solomon.  Both are based in Europe and offer freerolls that will probably meet your needs.

I disagree

I think that freeroll tournaments are good for some things. It makes you think about what the inexperienced players do.  I say you get just as much experience at the play money tables as you do at the micro limit tables (anything below 5/10 no limit or 10/20 limit).  So, if you don't have any ambition to play the higher limits, playing the play money games will actually "help" you play the micro limit games by teaching you to be patient for cards even as all these maniacs are giving away their chips.

To progress at this game you have to play for real money . Freeroll whit real money prize are the best way to begin but dont waste your time whit fun money freeroll ....this is not a good way to practice!

Yes it is something that AP has recently added to its Multi Tourney section but when u play for free chips the players you are up against will not play the same as players u will be against in real money tourneys in free tourneys it is an all-in contest and the worst player usually prevails.....................so NO............

I think they are good for you to learn how the game is played (like the flop turn river) and to get a feel for how the buttons work and all, you know to get a handle on the site itself and how the bells and whistles work, but as for whether or not it helps you play against real players? no.

I don't see any reason to play for chips when you can play freerolls for money.  There are people who say playing against 1000 people for a total prize pool of $50 isn't worth it.  Well, I think it depends what you're conparing against.  Compared to say 100 people competing for the same $50, yeah, it's not worth it.  But if you were going to play for chips, then I'd have to say it is.

Play money tourney

Postby Wharleas » Thu Jul 13, 2006 9:37 pm

I think play money tourney's are a good way for people to learn the game.  Yes there is your occasional fool that goes "ALL IN" but you get to know those idiots and just learn to avoid them.

These people exists as well in the freerolls and the buy-in tourney too.  Just less of them there.  So I would say go for it, if you want the practice play money tourney's are good for you...

Absolute is a great place to start playing at. Im not fond of their rivers there but for free you get a chance to win a few hard earned dollars and it teaches you how to play long tournaments.
