all ins in freerolls

Postby Ressivoisin1970 » Tue Feb 14, 2006 3:52 am

i agree that all these players are doing it because they believe that if they dont have chips at the begining its not worth sticking around to see if they can place well, but if you have a good hand there is no reason y u shouldnt call, all they can do is get lucky on u

I'd much rather bomb out of a freeroll early with a great hand (AA, KK, QQ, AK suited) than hang around for an hour or 2 for a measly 50 cents - play aggressively and remember what you're actually playing for

i agree, in low payout high entry tourney take an early lead then play tight 2 the break. Then I play my normal game

All-ins in freerolls is another complete strategy that many players are using nowadays (maniac strategy, all-in strategy etc...)  It has it's advantages.  I like to  implement this strategy in the large field (+1000) freerolls.  In the smaller freerolls (like forum freerolls) I usually play standard tight/aggressive poker.  
As far as the maniac strategy, I use a very specific format based on hole cards and table position and players/potential players involved in the hand.
Good luck everyone

playing a freeroll is not at all like playing for real money the difference is in the palyers and the pot , dont forget that there are hundreds of freerolls all over so why not go all in and if you have a decent bankroll then start to play serious

At least you have nothing to lose by going all-in in a freeroll.

And the way the cards come out on some of these sites anyone could win.

I always go all in with strong hand freflop in the first 5 levels of multi tournaments. Then play tight, always pays.

Personally I HATE BINGO PLAYERS..   I would much rather sit back and watch them take each other out and then when they are gone (of course I do play against them with good hands like AA and KK) I will then get back to playing poker.

i agree with nrous....you're most likely to get an idiot calling you with 10-2 off since brunson made it famous.   I'm going to get back to my 60 cent tourney now since that's all i have left cuz i'm a horrible player

I seen some of the worse poker played in freerolls first hour or so.  I get tired of people just going all in because they can, then end up winning with 4-9 beating my k's or something.

i think the best strategy is to only play bullets or coyboys in the first hour, then all the all inners are gone and you can start to play some real poker

Yeah..
In the beginning I just play extremely tight game.
When those alltime-all-inners are gane maybe its good to loosen game a bit.
