i fold for the first hour of a free roll

but if u feel like calling off ur 75, or 150 bb stack (depends which site ur playing at) with trash then that is your prerogative

the correct play here would have been a fold preflop

exactly,, and if u wanna take some risk ,,slowplay and preflop and hope u don't get raised...

then when flop comes u must hit two pair or have a multidraw with the communitycards,,

if not fold as soon as you get called or raised after the flop..

Anyways A-7 suited or ofsuit ,,mostly garbage hand....

not the hand that will help u build bankroll on long term...

unless ur from russia ,keep playing that hand.. Agree Big Smile

I think you could play that hand, i mean in the first part of a freeroll there are some crazy plays overall...

People many times do flips with anything just to build a big stack. What was the conclusion?

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.

Hi callie28.

In a freeroll if i play A7 i call with this flop, in a MTT we must take risk if we want to do something good. The question is, why to play A7 in the second hand of the tourney?

I agree with awood88 post.

I don't understand why you've even seen the flop. Obviously fold.

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

It's a nice thought, but I bet it's not the case..

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.

2nd hand in fold. Later on and if he's one of those that shoves all the time easy call.
