I am just playing the tablet freeroll tournament on Pokerstrs and I like what I see: Out of 1.861 starters I am now at place 13. 267 players are left and 100 are getting the entry for the final. So it is looking really good at the moment.

In a typical pay-to-play tournament, the prize pool consists of an accumulation of the entry fees minus a "fee" which is retained by the house. In a freeroll (at least from the players' perspective) the prize pool is essentially a "donation" provided by the house.

Thank you very much for the explanation, although I did not need it nor did I ask for it. But I have never heard a better one. By the way I am 29 th at the moment and there are only 111 players left. I have to make that.

I just want to make absolutely sure, that is why I do not want to sit out completely but rather let the clock tick down and wait until it is over, because you never know what can happen. But I am definitely playing very tight now.

Thank you very much for these good wishes and it must have helped. As expected I made the cut. I did not have to do much in the finishing stages of the tournament with so many chips - just be careful not to go crazy. Big Smile

Nah, it sounded so 'out of place' and 'out of character' from him that I took the first sentence and googled it - boom there went my hopes to someone actually surprise me someday with some originality...
I know I've been bitchin about these from some time, but people here must understand that bull$hits have their own places. Yeah, we do sometimes off-topic things in serious discussions or joke around with the subjects and subtexts of some articles/posts or even go out and ruse someone's statements etc.
None of that is defensable, but going out and copypaste the whole phonebook is no way a helpful method to try keeping this forum above the water when it comes 2 some interesting or semi poker-related topics by any standards.
If somebody wants to write brainfarts, by all means go and enjoy his stay at the complete bulls$hit or iTestify thread, or even start a blog about generally uninteresting $hit (like I did).
If somebody try to up their game, then go and make thread about it: show us some hands, some stats or even start blogging about it on his/her game nights (like others did) - we might ripping it pieces but at this point anybody who seriously want's to talk about poker here is welcome from my standpoint...
If somebody wants to spend his/her precious time here to make more stupid and boring flashfaust like nonsense spouting from one topic to anotherin and out - at least do it by stopping the blatant CTRL C/CTRL V method and show some original thought. By all means I would appreciate all their $hit if they would do it that way.

I am in no way being an official spokeperson of the forum or any of it's inhabitants other than me, nor a mod in any way - and I even know many of you thinking I am subhuman troll who plays off others misery, but I had this opinion a long time, so it's officialy here now...

I want at least ten downvotes for this post. Thank you.

When you play a PokerStars freeroll that gives true numbers of entries and you're close to qualify it is best speculate watching your position with regard to the number of entries and the number of players still in the tournament
Recalls that in this case the least important is to win the tournament or get one of the top positions, the goal is the same coming first or last within the one hundred
We must act wisely and the result will be positive Big Smile

You are absolutely right on that topic, one should really play extremely tight and only very very few hands in that kind of situation, because once you are involved in a hand with the blinds that high you can easily loose a big part of your stack.

although its calledfreeroll,one thing u should put in mind is playin the exact formula if you play like just an casual or need just to relax.u might not develop your skill and cannot win cashgames or a middle buy in tournaments.freerolls are intend to build your bankroll cannot use for a living u must play with a real money with a real decision so goodluck

OK mate I agree with you that one should normally play a freeroll in the same style as a normal buy in tournament, but if there are just tickets at stake and you are lying in a very good place you should play way tighter than you normally would.

If anyone cares about it I have been playing the final of this competition (2.200 dollars at stake and only 700 players starting with a min cash of two euros for the top 200) and went out pretty early. So it was all for nothing.

It is all for nothing at the end of it, when you have lost. But if you dont try playing the game
you will never know the outcome Smile When you start from 0 also, you are not losing a single thing.
Better luck on the next one.

Yup , I agree with Mober, nothing spent, nothing lost, nothing gained nothing lost. For nothing a lot of effort does go into it and power for your machine, whatever medium you play on, but does it make up for winning nothing? Doubtful, but arguably better than losing a $10 buy in.
