Poker Players vs Donk Players  0   
I played in the 9:00 am tourney today and was out in the first round.Thanks to the donk players !!! I had K Q suited on the button and there was 1 caller, so I put in a 3x the BB raise and the BB re-raises 360.00 and the caller calls and the way the BB had been playing, he was playing the way donks normally plays.Had the caller re-raised, I would have insta-folded !!! But she didn't,she just called. So, I was a little skeptical about her, but I called.The flop came (and no cards that should have helped either player) So now the BB pushes all-in and the the caller calls. So now, I have to fold. So the turn and river and not alot,but the BB has to show what he had, and yes it was crap. 4 6 off And you guessed it the caller slo played pocket Aces. I don't claim to be the best poker player, but I kinda understand the way the game should be played...It is hard sometimes playing Donk Poker !!! I just had to get this off my chest before I have to re-place another monitor !!!

people should be glad that donks exists because it would be a lot harded to earn money playing online poker if ALL PEOPLE play good Blink
Imagine that flop came 468 suited in whatever suit you had... that donk with 64 would lose everything (if full boat don't hit the idiot Tongue )

i've learned to sit out for the first 10-15 hands save your money let them knock eachother out. I prefer to play poker myself not bingo

Don't forget: You're playing a freeroll. The many people don't feel like grinding away for 2+ hours to finish in the $100 prize pool. So instead they take a big gamble up front, if they win, they have a better shot of finishing in the money and it's worth their time. If not back to tables where the money is.

Don't expect people to make perfectly sound decisions until you're in the money.

Learning that you need to skew from your normal playing techniques to be competitive in these freerolls. Also, like Killuminated stated about sitting out for the first 30 minutes. Just don't expect to have normal poker play in the freerolls because it just don't happen. Make sure you have the knuts if or when you go allin. I'm a beginner for the most part, but would never call some of the hands that kicked my azz in freerolls. Good Luck to All!

Rembember... play freerolls super hiper mega tight and agressive on early and middle phases...
And do yourself a favor and start to play with realmoney even if with a 20$ account... lear positions..phases..bankroll management...

KQsuited is not that good to raise on your position.. and if so.. it wold be a 4bb's raise plus a bb for every caller... and if ever raised... instant fold Smile

Good luck Smile

I agree, I do not even play KQs in almost anystage of a freeroll tournament except for maybe at the final table. In the early stages AA KK QQ AKs, I try not to even get myself into trouble with JJ. Shock
