I have played in a few BankrollMob freerols now and always seem to loose all my chips in the last 30 to last 20 players.

Has anyone got any tips so that I can at least get into the last 10 and make some money instead of leaving with a few cents every tournament? Confused

Play well and one time you will get to the final table.

There isn´t anything else that you can do, just play good.
Over some big sample of tournaments you would see that you get to more final tables than if you have played bad.

tighter up with 20 to 30 players if you want to make the final table and not too sure on how to play and push with preniums and some pocket pairs and be happy with the result. At least you making it to the top 20-30, just improve your late stage game and you will be on your way to wining the tourney!

Cheers good luck, push hard and hope for a good flip!

You can't play too tight too as blinds will be huge at these moments, yeah play tight is the best possible way to play I mean hands like A10 or lower kickers should be fold if out of position or 2 early callers before etc... and indeed luck have to be on your side as it's in these moments you need AA, KK, QQ or AKs to win key pots which will safe yourself to the FT. Good luck Thumbs Up

In general i agree with both Heskor and Calmplay.But there is a Difference between tourneys at Pokerstars and FullTilt .The first is turbo.So there you have not the luxury to wait for monsters hands to come. You have to play AT and better hands and I think all pairs.This way you aim to keep your stack in a healthy and playable level.
At Fulltilt personally i play very tight because levels are rising very slowly so you can wait a perfect spot to risk your stack.But luck is needed for sure .Yesterday finished 4th and in the way i doubled up 5 times,taking down coinflips.

It's an interesting topic really. There are games where I have played Sally well and gone out to a lucky shot PRE bubble.....whereas I have played rubbish and have needed up well in the money. Then there was last night....and not for the first time..... I joined a game half an hour late, fell asleep part way through and finished 7th well into the money places.

Big Smile< lol... Now THAT is funny... Thumbs Up

Just follow damosk's strategy and you'll do fine... Smile Well,...maybe,...maybe not...

The guys are right I figure.... If you're fairly close to the bubble, tighten up if you have a medium sized stack... If you're close with a short stack, you're going to have to take a chance and play, so try to make it a good one if you have A-10 or higher,...or a larger pair,...maybe 10s or better kind of thing.

Of course, if you are BIG stacked, that gives you a little wiggle room. You could either sit back and let 'em kill each other off,...or if you have big cards and good position,...play with their minds a little just for fun...

...but one thing,...even if you have AA,....don't fall for the all in from a big stacker,...there's a good chance you get get reduced to near nothing,...or knocked out altogether... Smile

If it's a 9 player table,...a 10th place finish in the top 10 isn't good enough. You WANT that final table at least... Thumbs Up

Some times depends on the table you are sitting, at that point.
If there are other big stacks and how they play the game.
You should adapt trying to steal some blinds if you can, since
that gives you the flexibility to wait for good cards.
And of course you need to be lucky Smile

Earlier on I notice many players are looser so it is okay to take the occasion coinflip to build a stack so that way going into the late stages you have a big stack to survive the blinds. Tighten up when their is fewer players left play the premium hands depending on the situation and the playing style of the opponents. If you play tight and have a shorter stack luck plays a huge factor because of the blinds and the big stacks bullying the table so the goal would be to get a average to bigger step heading into the late stages then you can take it easy and grind your way to a final table.To win the actual game you need to get lucky overall. I myself made the final table yesterday and I finished in 6th when I ran Aces into Queens and my opponent hit his one outer to end my run. But anyways good luck to you and hopefully you can take one down Big Smile

I dont think there is any special way to make it into the top ten. I dont think you can be doing much wrong if you are getting into the top twenty or thirty regularly.Just keep doing what you are doing and the final tables will definitely come

I think the best thing is steal when possible and when u hit something get ur money in but no all right away bet high if they call make continuation bets. If u think they have a better hand don't play lose slow rowl it,

i agree on the part if you got a big stack you should play looser
play hands in position but dont overplay you're hands
if you are in position dont play hands like k9 when someone raised/ called before
you could get in serious danger when you hit the k or a 9 as toppair

about the AA i certainly dont agree
i would never ever fold my aces preflop

you are around 80% favourite against all hands
if you fold you're stack just keeps getting lower and lower,

who cares if you finish 7th, its a nice position and i would sign for it before the tourney starts,
but once you get that far you play to win it.

just look at the payjumps

difference between being 7th or 1st is like 6/7 times the money

so would you sign for the a nice cash or a great cash?

and if you get sucked out with you're aces then you still did the right thing and you can be proud of what you did.
if you fold those and end 7th you surely regret folding the aces

It depends on your chip stack and your position in the tournament and if big stack then you can wait for monster AA KK QQ and 3 4 5 betting these hands what works for me is tight aggresive poker if i have a premium hand i play it GL Blink
