So after 2 days ago finishing in an awful 48 position in a freeroll on fulltilt , 45 places paid , and that after 5 hours of play , today I decided to give it another try , so after 4 hours of play , I'm sitting in 56 out of 98 , hopefully this time I'll reach the money , even though it's not much , but my pride just needs it so badly, I'll update this when I'll be ITM.

You can do it.. Take it down..

Be strong when you think you are ahead, bet aggressively and don't back off when you have hte nuts.

And my"luck" strikes again , being shortstacked , with about 11 blinds , in dealer button , holding A Q , the guy next to me ( also a short stack about 15 blinds ) decides to go all-in , so normally I call , SB folds , BB folds , he has K Q , flop K river K , so I finish in 78 th place , and all this after another 4 hours of play , so there goes another useless session of 4 hours ..... Aww crap! Aww crap!

That surely hurts, but don't be to results orientated. You made the correct play here, but got unlucky. Only a matter of time until you make it into the money.

Spot on. You got the chips in good, and it was only a lucky suckout that screwed you. Just dust yourself off, and get back on the horse and go again. Eventually you will do it.

AlexSimion..... 10 out of 10 for perseverence. Make sure you keep your patience and keep playing the way you have been so far and you time will come. Its always difficult on freerolls cos you have to battle against so many loose cannons, but keep trying and dont lose confidence or patience.

At the end you will made it to the money.
But if thats the only game you play for 4 hours its a waste of time.
I wanna believe that you are playing more games along with that tournament,
otherwise it would have been better to go out for a walk Smile
gl in your next games

Your not alone...twice now playin PLO freeroll in top 60 and get rivered and bounced...off to the next one. As long as I can honestly say I played my A game then that's all that matters...the payout is low for the amount of entrants...alot has to go right...doesn't always happen that way. Keep on keeping on...GL

I also tried the 150 dollars PLO freerolls on full titl the other days just for fun but tournaments are so not my game lol

I managed to have a stack of 3 times the average on beginning when people raised with literally any hand but after two hours of play i was waay too bored to continue and i leaved...

Well Amigo,
From what I can tell you made the proper called and just got beat because of a suck out. You can do everything right and still lose. Just keep playing good solid poker and you WILL make the money. Stay calm and be cool. You will get it done soon mate. Thumbs Up

wishing you all the best.

Had my carck at the Omaha Freeroll on Carbon poker tonight and got down to 51st and lost out to back to back 10's turn and river to knock me out so I know what it's like to play a few hours and then miss out on the money. I guess that's why I don't play them to much on Carbon. Well, not all I could anyway! Good Luck on the next one!

Green, a firend told me he plays those freerolls on carbon poker but this was like a year or so ago, do you mind to tell me how many participants register to them nowadays and whats the prize pool??

Also i want to add that PLO tournaments play a lot different comnpared to holdem but that it doesn't mean that you can't get some nasty bad beats.
