I know,it's a puzzle how to play those BRM freerolls depending on how i feel i either get them in with
garbage same as they do,or i try and play some poker and that's the hard way to do it.
Eithar way you still need a bit of luck to dodge those russians. Big Smile

One way to play them is wait until the last possible minute to register...! That way most of the idiots have knocked each other out in the first few minutes...!

Another way is to just play the game like they do... Just shove off the start until you get a fairly good stack,...then back off and play a little more normal...!

It IS very frustrating playing those,...but I've managed to cash in the top 30 on the leaderboard twice...!

Sometimes you can overthink these tournaments and it maybe best to play reckless for a while and see if you can get an early chip lead and then try to play normal poker in the later stages. You always need a fair bit of luck in these freerolls

It is easy to get discouraged when playing freerolls, but you have to learn not to let it get to you. A few years ago before Black Friday I played a lot of freerolls on Full Tilt, where after several levels of tournaments you could win a ticket to a big live tourney. During that time I played two different styles:

1. Play the best poker possible from start to finish

2. Early in the tourney shove anything 99 or higher or AQ/AK and hope for a double up or triple up

I found that with style #1 I would regularly advance through several levels of play, but would only go deep sometimes and often after an hour get bounced out by some crap hand. With style #2, if I managed to get a big stack early I would usually make it to at least the last two tables, and got bounced out early a lot. The nice part if I got bounced out early was that it would let me do other stuff rather than waste an hour only to lose to crap.

The main thing is, don't let it get to you. Thumbs Up

Well read stuffs about poker and work on your mind game is my advices there are lots of stuffs out there on poker and just need some time to get it. Some discipline will help you along the way. Just getting the basics can make you go far. Videos can also be helpful. You have to put in work. I don't do any of these thing because i work and play for fun. But if i was to play seriously i would follow my own advice lol.

Anyway good luck just hope lady luck is on your side when you against donkeys!

A good strategy against these face book parasites is too shove with premium hands AQ AK 1010 and higher most of the time they call with garbage 29 off Q6 off etc GL Big Smile Blink

Welcome to the club my friend. After a lot of thinking I decided that its pointless to play turbo freerolls against such kind of players. They respect nothing and practically they make choices following the unwritten law that big stack absolves the smaller one. Personally I gave up Pokerstars freerolls and playing only to Fulltilt because structure is different: regular tournaments with no pressure to make rushed decisions. You can wait a long time until you finally put all your chips in the middle. Don't despair there are everywhere donks

You cant expect different kind of game play in such tourneys.
Especially when the prize money is low many of the players donking their way up at
first, to get a decent stack to reach further in the money.
It doesnt worth it either way to play hours for couple of cents.
But some are doing this also in freerolls with a respectable amount of money as prize.

Most freerolls are not poker so do not think you can do anything about it...

Since you are a legit bankrollmob meber my advice for you would be to take some no deposit bonuses and play some real poker Blink
