That's a good payout for a freeroll! Out of curiosity, what was the payout for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place?

Yeah, I am curious to know that as well, surely it can't be that much?

Not that I would sneeze at any of those amounts, but it's still incredibly small for a $50K prizepool.. I'm used to very short fields, where I expect to collect 15-30% of the prize-pool if I bink it.. Quite often 20%+

That on the other hand is only 2% ! :O Obviously, I understand why with 17,000 or something paid places.. Still though, IMHO - If I played something like that - or even a $1 buyin, 50,000 runner event - I'd rather just have the top 500 or top 1000 paid and better prizes.

I have the same opinion about these huge freerolls at PS.
Better to pay less places and get a better pay when you get in the money.
Rather finish out off the money then get 1 dollar in a 50 K tourney.. total bs

$1 is better that $0 imho Big Smile and considering that most of players who entered the tourney had no $ in their account $1 could be the start of their rosy poker career with no investment at all...i won this crappy $1 too, not excited too much, but it's still better than playing for two hours or so to bust out just outside of money imo

Within this context I actually disagree. I'd rather have $0 and not have committed any time, than have $1 and have wasted 2+ hours.

Both opinions above are understandable.
But Jess, for you this is a waste of time and for others it is 2 hours of fun and additionaly they win $1.
So some are really happy about this (BTW, I also won $1 in this, lol, but I didn´t paid attention to that tourney)

Yeah I totally get that, I started off playing online poker with play money at Full Tilt. And I had heaps of fun - just building a points balance.. Then I discovered freerolls and eventually I found No Deposit Bonuses.

However - it's been about 3 years now and I still enjoy the game, but I wouldn't play for hours just to win a $1 anymore.

But I do agree, for those still starting out, it's great - you get to play the game, practice, have fun AND have the chance to win a little bit of money with no risk. Thumbs Up

Agreed.

It's like the $25 freerolls on PS - you take half a day if you win...for what? $5?? lol

Even if you really enjoy poker, unless you have d**k all else happening in your life, then its something to curb the boredom I guess but nothing more.

and there's always the risk of spending 6 hours to get no money whatsoever.
