I’m looking at my bankroll right now and it says $0.34. Over the last six months it’s said anywhere between $0.00 and $12.56, but right now it says $0.34. Thirty four cents. About the same price as a Milky Bar, or one of them crappy candles that are about the size of the ‘OK’ sign you can make with your hand.
Thirty four cents is not a lot of money, but I dread to think h[...] Read more » 34¢ of Blood

Hey, good luck, maybe continue to play those freerolls and you might get lucky and get the break you need to power up playing the new level. It will be hard at first , I tried to build a roll with freerolls but they were too time consuming !!

These freerolls are notoriously difficult to make any money in as most of the players are only there to go all in and you need to be extremely lucky to even last a few levels. I would enter a small stakes tournament and work your way up
I just don´t get why most of you think that going deep in a freeroll is harder than in a normal (money buy-in) tournament. It is ten times easier!!! The bad players and gamblers make it so easy for you to build a big stack.
Dude dont kid yourself, youre not living the poker lifestyle, and if really freerolls the only thing you play, you barely playing poker at all. I wont call you donk or fish, cuz they are players who slowly but surely gave away their money to more experienced, better players and since you have no money at all, Im not sure u r a cardplayer. I mean the best bankrollmanagement is having no bankroll to manage. Congrats to achieveing that. Im not sure u afraid to loose (obviously) or having difficulties learning to play properly (which in case freerolls just gonna make it worse) but blogging about the "nothing" is kind of a post-post-modern artform todays, so good luck doing it.

well i did like his blog. and freerolls while being generally easier to play, are sort of minefields. What are ur aces worth if there are 5 people going all in after you? And stuff like that
figured best way to cash in in freerolls is to build up a bit larger stack so blinds dont eat it, and sit out for like first 30 mins - 1hr, because its quite impossible to survive all those gambling bets people make, regardless of how good your cards might look to you
