I agree with the sitting out part, just not actually "sitting out". My strategy is to play like I'm sitting out until half the field is gone, only playing AA,KK, or QQ during the first half of the field. It's too easy to double up later and be right back in the mix, the key is getting the boneheads out of there

freeroll strategy...............

Postby Yountivell » Wed Sep 07, 2005 11:35 pm

only play the best hands aggressivley in the 1st hr ul generally get called, if u hit nuthing on the flop & an ace isnt there bet again (most freerollers think an ace is a winner) & will fold, i can regularly build up a good "stack" by only playing 20% of the hands (if that). on bet fred theyve a stats window thats easy 2 read n lets u know how u play. when u get 2 the last few n u flop a good hand try 2 check or bet small at this point in a tourney people r always lookin 2 double up & will bluff or go all in on top pair. all that bein said i dont think ive won more than a handful of tourneys bt am regularly in the money. this is only my view n not "law" so good luck guys i hope 2 c u at a few "final tables".

freeroll strategy

you have to avoid the nutbars that go all in early even if you actually have a good blind.  have been beaten with KK early when i went all in.
Tighten up for the first half an hour

i play differently depending upon the amount of entrants into the freeroll and the payout.

normally i try and only play low entry or highpayout freerolls. Avoiding any freeroll over 1k entrants. bingo is not my game :)

if i do play a large freeroll,  i tend to play very hard in order to capitalize on luck and the fact that i can get 2-3 calls when i go all-in... sure that reduces my odds of winning, but who cares it costs nothing to enter and if i lose i spent all of 10 minutes there.
great thing about this is some folks will think i suck :)

Smaller freerolls i tend to play very tight for the first 30 min or so unless i have AK or AA KK  ect...
i like tournaments that have payouts of about .50 to 1$ per entrant. ie, 1000 entrants = 500-1000$ prize pool.

it is hard to tell how long the boneheads will last. i think that playing tight untill 1/2 of the players are gone might be to early. i have been burned to many times at level 7 or 8 going all in with a faced pair and getting busted by a suited 27. BUT its all in the cards so i just keep on trying.

Good stradegy if you can see a flop early on for the price of a BB but latley that doesn,t happen often. Have at least AA or KK to go ALL IN early and double up or triple up if they holdup. !! Early on Donks will call ALL IN,s with just about any hand!! And that,s funny because i raise 240 chips with AA and everyone folds, better to go ALL IN to get action.

freeroll strategy

Postby Maysinger » Sat Nov 04, 2006 6:26 pm

I agree with you Trench.  The all in idiots at the start of the tournament aren't anywhere to be found in the final stages of the tourney. I will say that in the beginning of the tourney I am pretty much of a calling station when the blinds are small.  I like to see alot of flops.  As the tourney progresses I tighten up.

I like to play freerolls when I have a lot of time on my hands.  I hate making it to the end and losing in a stupid move.. However, that seems to happen a lot. Patience is the key!
