PS freerolls are a joke. Seriously, you gonna play 10,000 ppl for a TOP prize of $10 ?? WTF? just deposit $10
I do sometimes play freerolls, like couple days ago I played the PKR $10K freeroll with 2,500 people (cap'd at 2,500) I only won $13, but I was going well till I dropped, top place was $1800.
If you take $10,000 and divide by 2,500 people then you're entry into this is $4. Its basically a $10K GTD $4 buyin MTT. It's not bad value for time spent. $1800 top prize is nothing to sneeze at.
But normally I wont go near a freeroll with less than $1K total prize money and more that about 1,000 players.
PKR has multiple daily freerolls with $250 prize money and around 500-800 runners. I don't even bother with these. I sometimes play the monthly silver member freeroll, which is about 1300 runners and $3K prizepool.
Celeb also has good value freerolls., like $40 prizepool only 60 runners, or $200 prizepool with about 150-200 runners.
10 000 runners and a pathetic $100 total prizepool is a fken joke.
Agree, Pokerstars freerolls are a waste of time and don't worth. I remember at the beginning, i played a freeroll with 12,000 entrants! And i was 10th!! I won 4$ and i was 8 hours playing! My god ... ! Today i'm not able to do such thing
I still think that they are better than the round freerolls at full tilt.
7500 players all playing to make top 250. Top 250 go onto a 1k freeroll which has about 20000 players.
That means that the ticket you win is worth roughly 5 cents. 5 cents to beat out 7250 other players is ridiculous. But free money is free money.
Im lucky because the daily $100 freeroll for NZ citizens on FT has about 500 entrants. To get a daily freeroll where your entrance is worth roughly 20 cents on one of the major sites is pretty good comparatively.

Most tournaments must be played in the same way, for example in the first phase to be patient and wait for good cards because the blinds do not eat, when the blinds are significantly higher change your strategy aggressively, and raise if go to play a hand, and on the last stage the third, only use to go all in or folder and it should do so with good cards, greetings.

The regional freerolls are the best ...... Irish and English get some great freerolls plus they usually also give entry to big money mtt ..... eg at the moment there running a $1000 one so not only do you win money but if you make the top 9 you get entered into a tourney with a prize fund of $150,000 .... plus they also have one with no prize fund by 90 entrys into this mtt these a two are running nightly for a while .........or in the same tab a $2 game and anyone who makes the money wins entry to this tourney .......
only last week i played in a freeroll with a prize fund ... made $2 but also got entry into a $11 $5,000 guaranteed mtt ..... ended up with just over 4000 entrants and a prize fund of $46,000 So overall im very happy with freerolls on pokerstars and hope they continue running regional events like this
But as for the regular ones .... lol they are mad .... still have a round token .... have it about 6 mts... still dont know when im going to use it

When you have a little bank, freerolls are a good way to make it high. But if you have a good bank, play freerolls is a waste of time. And see players go allin with blinds 20/10 can make someone play worst!!
