Depends entirely on circumstances and i'm not talking about the cards or your opponent
I'm talking about what the freeroll means to you, how much time you have, what mood you're in, whether there are other tournaments you'd rather play. Normally these things don't come into it but it's a freeroll and you can't take them as seriously as other tournaments.
So if you really care about this tournament, cos you want the win or cos you want to kill time, then fold cos you don't need the chips second hand in and you might be behind (unless it's a really speedy turbo structure). If you are prepared to gamble it's a definite call. You are usually against idiots and players who don't care so take it.
I dont know but maybe he was in the BB and no one raised so it was a free flop but on this flop you could easily fold if you have enough chips left what i think you have cause it is the second Hand of the tournament

This is tricky. In a freeroll, you have lots of players who just go mad in the first hands because they just want to keep playing it if they have a good start. There’s this “tradition” in some freerolls played at some sites of almost everyone at the table going all-in in the first hand. I used to find it funny, going just to see what happened, watching a high pocket pair losing to any two low cards. He probably just happens to have a pair and he decided to move that way. He doesn’t have a 3 because, if he did, he would wait for you to put your chips there. It may happen that he has a better kicker than you. I would call, but just because I don’t give that much importance to a freeroll in its beginning.
