UPDATE, MAY 1st: The February-March-April leaderboard has now ended, but we'll re-use this thread for the next (current) leaderboard, which is a total of $21,400 that covers May, June and July. Cash prizes ($1500) and freeroll entry ($1500) is the same as last time.
UPDATE, AUGUST 9th: Another leaderboard has ended (the May-June-July leaderboard), but we might as well keep this thread going for the next leaderboard: August-September-October.

Im not playing on Stars because of the 5min blind levels, lot of people play those freerolls, over 4-5k, & its just bingo on those levels. Admin, dont BM have influence to change them like on other sites to 10min blind level?

Gratz to BMob for the great Leaderboard series! Sure, at Stars you have the most opponents of all sites und you can win normally only a few cents after 2-3 hours. But in additional you have the chanc e to win extraprizes at the monthly Leaderboard.

first of all big thanks for actually organizing something, and that something is actually for free! always nice to see chances being given to the "biggest pro's" of online poker- the freeroll masters i just wonder why this time leaderboard drags for two months, instead of the usual monthly format?

I am not playing as much freerolls here as i would like to because i can’t find time to do it, but even those i already played werent enough to make me win a place in this list. Sometimes, things start running well and then, after the first hour, I tend to decrease concentration on this because of playing ring games at the same time, and I never get to points here. Of course that I would feel much worst If I had lost at ring than at this freerolls, but even though I would like to give some fight for this prizes and it just seems that I have to quit other games while I am into this. How do you guys use to do it? You only play this or you mix it with other poker action?

i try playing at least 4 tables at once,,only to get a better chance on getting monsterhands,, however,in my first try out period of about a half year on''stars'' i won about 5-6 ypurnaments with playmoney -with 5000-7000 players. and qualified on many freerolls to the weekend tournaments where the best 72 or 64 players receive a ticket for weekly round 2.
then after a while i went to realmoney ,,but after a year of dedicated playing i never managed to win such big tournament, with buy-inns varying from 1$ up to 30$
result after 1 year at stars is that i am -10% down with a total prizemoney of about 6000+ $
still waiting for my first big win..
and indeed if i play more tables at once ,, its only tournaments,, not a mix of cashgames and tournaments.. extualy to avoid me going tilted.

Stars is the only roomwhere i can´t win anything. But this not new for me i saw it since 2007. OK the prizepool is not large-to much players. But the other leaderboard series at party and 888 are good.
I think you should esctrick the amount of players on the BRM freerolls as it takes way to long to play them, most of us don't have time to play against 5k people, yes it's a shove or fold tournament but that ruins poker.

I agree what After_darks1 alredy said,it's these day's all-in or fold,the freeroll needs an other name ZOOM BRM FREEROLL,coz if some1 get hand #1, and he called the BB ,the players after him,make a raise,reraise,untill 1 player goes all in,then most off the time the players that already put ships in the pot called the all in,and if you see the showdown,some calls an all in whit 8-3(in my case) and wins that pot.but i have to admit that i do it also ,but not evry hand/time

Here's my advice on the bankroll pokerstars freeroll , play very tight the first 30-60 minutes , that's about how long it takes for the donks to get the all-in rage out of their system , I managed to win second place , twice in two days , so i guess it works ok for me on pokerstars.

i played many of this freeroll but is verry dificult to win twice . i have a win and a second place .my position to leaderboards is 2; after 2 mounth only 10,6points . i think is verry hard to do the point you could do on 888 or party.
