Something to think about when playing freerolls

Postby Abstold » Sat Mar 18, 2006 9:56 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...

Couldn't agree more.  Pick your spots early and then open your game up as you get closer to the money. 8)

If it's a table where someone is constantly going all-in, then tight is the way to go. If it's a lose pasive table you can open it up a bit.  If everyone is limping in then any pair and suited connectors become good hands.  Fold them if they miss the flop.  If you hit, you know someone will pay you off.

Most freerolls are the same unfortunately, players (and some are loosely called this) will call and go all in with everything,

i try to fold everything unless i see a flop, patienece is the key in those games,

However private freerolls are ( usually) so much different

I played in that $500 Ap tourny last night with 798 people.. Early in with a decent stack I got moved to a table with those bingo (All in) players.. I simply sat out for half an hour.. Once you get down to the real players who dont like flipping coins the poker is great.

I battled hard and won the tournament and $100. If I didnt use discipline early I may have gambled on a big hand early and lost.

Wait them out and let them kill each other, A-A or K-K isnt that great a hand with 5 people all-in.

I disagree. I'm not an all-in frenzy.
But if I get a pocket pair bigger then 10s, and it's early stage, I go all-in pre-flop. Some crazy people will come with 3-J or KQ, whatever. If I can double (triple) up, I get more comfortable. If I got beaten, I saved a lot of time. But just waiting with the normal stack, when the 50% doubles up fast, thats not good.

If you hope to graduate from freerolls, you eventually have to learn to play at a higher level than bingo poker.

i play very aggressive in the beginning of tournaments to try and get as many chips as i can and as the tourny progress i tihgten up alot and hold on to the chips  i have. i do bluff occasionally when there are less people left because they are bound to fold jto hold on to there chips.

Like all of you, I dont like to play on the same table than '' all in '' player. I use the same strategy than a couple of player here. Just sit out and come back later. Patience is the best quality than a poker player can have.

about the only time i start playing real loose is when i start feeling real lucky or i have to get off the comp lol

In freerolls I am not palyin tight at all, cause most of hands those guys play is crap, and I dont mind busting them. Also I am prepared to get kicked out by some crapy hand and that doesnt bother me at all, I just live with it. But again I really dont have to wait for AA to bust these guys.
