$0.10 HORSE Freerolls  0   
Noticed them in the banner on the upper right portion of the screen, and decided to try one out. Figured it would be a shove fest, and they are... But with 5 min levels, and Omaha Hi/Lo8 and Razz as the next 2 levels. IF you can survive that far, the game is pretty weak, especially Razz.

Anyway, has anyone else taken the pleasure to waste 5-12 minutes to win a whopping $0.10?

I would comment on the level of play, but there is none that I can see. Shove, shove, shove, until down to 3 handed and you might be able to play a little poker. HU is a little better...

What did you expect from a NL freeroll, where only the winner cashes? Shove it, and on to the next tourney.

But i have seen some of those tourneys go to the break. That is more than 1 hour for a whopping $0.10. Confused

I guess the "first three places" are the problem. Who comes in second, if all 10 players shove in the first hand?

they can give all the winnings to first placed player in that case, and i don't think all 10 will go allin if 3 places are paid.

Yeah, you see that in the lobby?????

The longest I have played is 22 min, H-O-R-S-E-H, and over. That is not a brag. Was a decent HU match.

Not a real ROI, but maybe a way to go $0-$5 in one week, lol. During the evening, they had about 8-10 running concurrently, and last I tried, I could get into 2-4 of them simultaneously....

Just a comment....

Most of them have a player or more sitting out and other player has to blind him out, quite irritating

These freerolls are fun. Especially after a bad day on the cash tables, you just load 5-6 of these freerolls and keep shoving to let your fustrations go away Big Smile

Yeah, simply there were about 50 players just joining these and sitting out all the time and hoping to place. The fact that it was NL also meant that it was an all-in 1st hand tourney and if you go out then just join a new one.

As so often happens, a few idiots spoiled it for the majority so it makes it a little tough to manage properly.

I don't mind running the events but when I'm getting more complaints than praise then it's tough to carry on with them.

Suggestions welcome!

Cheers,
John

Do it like the shastas on Everest. Make them fixed limit games.

haha I like them, had 2 hours of boring lessons this morning, just went shoving the freerolls (shove first hand, hope you win it, and then it's down to playing poker). managed to get 1,2$ in like 1 and a half hour so Not THAT bad Tongue lol. But I can imagine there are more interesting things to do.

ty for your answer john

fixed limit it's a good idea; but, only my opinion, I don't like playing FL.

Maybe, if people like them (and I do), it would be useful to put a limit on the number of freeroll SNG u can join in a day (5 could be ok in my opinion) just like fun steps SNG.
This way interested people should play carefully and playing quality should grow up ( it would be also less expensive for bigbet).

hope it will be helpful, comments critics and suggestions will be appreciated

Totally agree Magatt but I can't limit players to number of tournaments. Wish I could...
