I cant believe how many donks there are playing in the BRM Party Poker freerolls. I played in one today where the first ten hands we didnt see a flop because people were going all in. How can people enjoy playing this way? Spoils the game for me

Wait for a good hand and then double(maybe triple) up with AA or KK against those donks.
But don´t worry later in the tournament there will be less and less of them.
Some lucky ones will survive very long time, but luckily they are really easily exploitable.
Just don´t get tilted when they suckout on you. It will happen sometimes.

Be happy woth the donks, because in the long run you are gonna make more money from them than with players playing solid poker or good players. Anyway freerolls are like this and you got to adapt, as it's free they do crazy things, i did crazy thing too sometimes when bored and playing freeroll.

Just play good poker and let the donks knock each other off!

No where near as bad as Pstars, I don't even play the BRM FR's there, too many PW stealing donks to even try those.
I'm not complaining about the PP ones because I seem to do well in these in at least in one of them a day.
Another FT yesterday for 5th place, my only ITM of the day.

I guess that is a very good reason for which why so many mobsters that already have a poker bankroll stop playing freerolls.

I guess the good part is that being a BRM member means that you also have acces to no deposit bonuses Blink

I testify, that the donks can be pretty annoying.
I was squeezing some limpers from small blind with pocket jacks and donk from big blind called with QJo and he won, obviously.
But I guess I can´t be results-oriented.

It´s good for you, or not? They eliminate them self and you can earn many chips with top hands. But I agree that´s not fun playing against donks at start of the turney... Angry

You wont make more money on donks in freerolls since these frees have a prizepool of glorious 25 bucks. You barely making money at all.
The place where you could make money on them is also the place where BRM free.roller frequents didnt go - cash games, sngs etc. Just anything that would mean they have to risk money to win some. You know - like real p.oker.
Thats what should be everybodies priority. How time consuming this is. Just DOES NOT F*CKIN MAKE SENSE participating in these on the hopes of making money. Already was said here that anybody who want to start playing poker but have no funds whatsoever should start with a no-depo bonus or something like that. Lets see if he could keep and manage that money first.
The real money is in the leader.board, but the thing is, the first three place pays good dough on the leader.board, the rest of the folks would be better off if they participate here on the forum, cuz in 3 MONTHS TIME with decent daily activity they probably would end up the same amount of money IN MOBPOINTS minus the stress and the urge to end up in itm on a tourey that no participator takes seriously and the first place doesnt even worth five dollars.
Its ridiculous I know but the goddamn continuous forum activity overall pays better than ending up 10th or 7th place on the leader.board quarterly.
