Freeroll Strategy (Article I)

Postby Abstold » Sat Mar 18, 2006 9:54 pm

You just really have to play so tight.  Wait to pick up big hands and then make your moves.  Then as the field thins down and you get closer to the money, you can make some bluffs and what not.  As you get down to the wire people want to cash so they'll tighten up a bit.  That's when you can make some moves.  Let me know what you think...

yeah i know what you're talking about. in the beginning everyone is loose and it's hard to play bluffs. at the end final table etc, people tighten up a lot and then bluffs are possible

I definitely agree that the only way to go in freerolls is to play tight, tight, tight. It's hard to do sometimes because they can be long and one can get pretty impatient, but it's almost always better to wait for good cards and play them aggressively.

Suited connectors are nice for limping too, because you can flop a monster hand and get paid off nicely. Otherwise, best to fold. Even if you have a solid hand (say, KT or KJ), someone is likely to have something better; if they don't, with all the other callers someone will outdraw you anyway!

Anyone who's truly playing tight poker will fold suited connectors and hands like KT and KJ most of the time.

I play tight unless I am in late position or have a great hand.  Earyl there are too many all ins on coin flips.

Poker online freeroll tournaments are a huge way to leverage a player's way into major tournaments and to win big money at no cost to the player.
Online casinos and poker rooms offer them to reward active players and to recruit new ones. Generally by playing a number of hands using real money, invitations are extended to play in tournaments at no risk. Players are also sometimes given points based on their play that can be redeemed for cash entries to the tournament of their choice.

An experienced player should keep in mind that with so many people getting into poker, the prize pools for online tournaments often go into the six-figure range.
And that it is worth it to keep in mind how they can obtain greater options for freerolls like what poker room to join with when considering where to play poker. For beginning players the advantage in using freerolls whenever offered or available is huge when starting out as it gives additional leverage to the player's bankroll.

Just keep in mind, the more you play the more free entries that will be offered to you.
