You’re right! After wasting so many time and patience on eight levels of the game, who would decide to make a move like that with such hand? If he was in a hurry and he had to go away he would have went instante all-in and there would be no history to tell about that. But playing this way, at this point? Nonsense, even knowing that we’re talking about a freeroll, but it wasn’t the first half hour of it, it was a bit later on.

You played the hand absolutely 100% perfect. Perhaps the initial raise pre was a bit big. 3x is usually pretty standard, perhaps even 2.5x at that blind level, since relative stacks start to become a bit uneven. Hopefully you don't just 4x your bigger hands, as anyone that pays attention will be able to figure you out and adjust. It's almost the same thing as when someone min-raises and then insta-jams when someone re-raises them lol.
Can't understand villains line. Pre I guess it could be a total agro bluff, but when you 4-bet him, he had to know you weren't going anywhere and should have let his hand go. Some players just can't let suited connectors go, they have this misconception that it's a stronger hand than it really is. Even on the flop, he's got a double gutshot and a backdoor flush draw, so he's only around a 34% chance to hit.
Meh it's a free roll, even once you get past the initial "bingo shove fest" you're still left with a bunch of idiots, they just have big stacks now.
lol, the guy probably felt like he was gonna win the hand when he first saw his hand, that's the only possible explanation for such a retarded play! A lot of people prefer feelings to maths, but it's actually a good thing because they're gonna give you money in the long run
the villain was playing like hes 24s was really a big hand as he re-raise...maybe he know what will be the community cards....hahaha....after the flop his hand already had a chance to win because he got outs...You were still ahead and you did good..he hits the miracle card...you lost but you played it well....

Actually - it kind of is. If ever there was an excuse for playing a hand like a spazz - it's because you're playing a freeroll.. I've joined plenty of freerolls before just to enjoy open-shoving every hand, being a dumbass, etc.. Good way to unwind IMO.
