i bust out of the BRM freerolls before the deadstacks bust out.

in the back of my mind i am thinking that i would have had higher EV sitting out like they are.

Yep, thata is very frustrating but sends a mesaage aboutbstyle ofplay and patience which should be viewed from a realistic perspective that you have to hang around and either be aggressive to cause passivity or be reallynlucky.

This Freeroll play is standard as its free, but u must still play ur premium hands as u won't be true to the spirit of poker and on the long run u will benefit mentaly. look at it this way and u will be playing correct poker even if u lose to bad play worst hands or fish n donk shovers.

When I used to be able to play in the BRM Freerolls I could get up in the morning before work and wait for a couple good hands to go allin with, double up once or twice and go to work. When I got off work I'd come home and check and would place in the money.
Of course I didn't always hit, I lost at times, but I'll bet you can't even do this anymore. Just wanted to share that piece.

since i can't remember last time i played those, i will ask: do any of those sitting out hippie dudes ever get in the money? if not then what +ev we are talking about? if they actually do- then it's a definitely no risk strategy to consider, yeah maybe it's low income, but still no risk? btw i always hate those sitting out's- they ruin the flow of the game

He always trying to double, or triple his stack and then he isnt sitout, he just waiting every hand, till his time for hand expire Big Smile Sometimes he can get 0,17 or 0.22 cents.. I cant understand it, it really satisfy him?? Big Smile

It s just a matter of doing the job....

What I mean is that there are several players that play aggressive or get very lucky in the beginning of the freeroll and built up huge stacks.

You can try to calculate how far you get into the tournament (not exactly). If your ITM and can t play any further... interesting to know if you have to try to double up again or not

example : tourney with 1000 players with 2000 chips, first 100 ITM

1000 players x 2000 chips = 2000000 chips in tourney

100 players ITM / 2000000 chips = 20000 chips

So if you have more than 20000 chips after 1 hour you ll be probably ITM, if you have 15000 and have only 15 minutes left to play, try to double up

That type of though comes to my mind more times than I would like to, that can only mean I’m committing some type of mistake over and over again, like a mouse biting the electric cheese. I usualy don’t do this type of errors in a row, like the mouse, but when it happens it always makes me feel bad. “I would have won more if I just shut the computer”. That may be what greed is about…
