you are right my friend most of the freeroll players play it like bingo with no poker skills but sometimes you get the reward and cash in on those crazy bingo players but in cash games with small buy-in you get the same type of game just got to play tight and wish that lady luck is is with you at least on the early stages

I tried 100K freerolls on Pokerstars but that is a so hard to win there. Almost 20 thousand players and only last part of final table can get really good money winner about 220 USD with 5 and a half hour job. However the 15th place of 19800 gets less than 1 USD. Hope to win something in Summer Challange rest bingo games instead.
You have too play looser in free rolls twice i hit quads in the 24-7 free rolls today ended up with a total of 9.00 made 4 final tables so far but only in the $100 ones had quite a few deep runs in the 500 ones what puzzles me is someone hits 4 of a kind QQQQ and only min bets it on the river those all in shoot out free rolls on Stars are brutal 0 for 14 not easy 4 rounds too make ITM played 2 hours in the Copper Free roll 4 shy of the money 1010 short stack was up against AA GL

Freerolls are a free opportunity to gain experience. It is very hard to gain the necessary experience of playing at the final table, simply because you very rarely get to see it. How often do you enter a tournament and how often do you see the final table in the end? Freerolls give you a cost free chance to train playing a final table.

Posted by ammytyagi: To win a freeroll, luck is most important factor to win. In initial stages no strategy works , you have to go allin in fiirst three levels otherwise your stack will be too small to play.
No no no.... Don't just go all-in with air because some other donks do the same. Trie to use that, and if you get dealt Aces, Kings KAs or any monster/grat hand then call all-in, this will work often unless you don't got those cards. But then it doesn't mean that the game is over, you can still play the normal game and get some profit, it's namely very likely that 90% at your table is a fish.
And if you play 15 minutes or so like that and got some profit, than you can sit-out for a while. Then go back and play a while until you have a decent stack built-up again and wait til the bubble is over. Then play very aggressive because mainly the prizes go up very slow at the beginning and very fast at/before the final table, go for the final table or just a small prize, and not between.
E.g.: Agressive means that you take on average: $0,10 and $1 Passive/conservative play: $0,20
Freeroll................... You gotta love it to play it
Thats why i prefer money tourneys........... Less donks.....o well they are still there............ But its not like freerolls., Were some people go all-in every hand....... I think they like the All-in challenges
Poker can be cruel poker can be good for u.... just a matter of the pokergod
