I play them rarely if im bored and just killing time. But definately a different strategy because the vast majority is either unwilling to fold and pr or draw or have no idea that there bottom pr are draw is not good . However i avoid publically open freerolls for the most part, Not because of the "donk" players but because i have little chance of gaining anything. ie: cash but more importantly knowlege and skill for the game . If anything these freerolls can teach you great ways on how not to play although they are always good for a laugh if that is all one is looking to gain from them.

Private freerolls are a different story for the most part if they are private (pass not badly leaked to all of the Tom dwan wanabees) Can not only be benefical to your bankroll but can be some very good players where a player can actually learn some decent gameplay . which to me if you can improve your game that is far more valuable than any one cash ...with perhaps the exception of the Main Event or some ridiculous cash. But hey im talking about freerolls here so i dont think im in danger of that.

i too like many get tired of the bad beats,bad calls, bad etc.the open freerolls have gone out the window compared to years ago,but then again maybe i was just one of those bad players and didnt notice it as i do now.i only play the open rush freeroll mostly trying to get the feel of the game.i do on occassion hit the u.b one but not often.i have to agree the private ones are for most part are played well.but not all.

I agree with everyone in this post. I have been done with public free rolls for about 1 year now and I feel great. I had to stop because the bad play from those carried over to my other tourney's. For the ones that still play these gl because that is all that is there, to hard to sit in front of the computer for 8 hours to win .10.

I enjoy playing the ones sponsored by private forums on smaller sites.

Usually most players know each other and play seems to be less radical.

I'm not so hard on freerolls as some. I got my start on many sites by grinding out these things. There are some things that they CAN help a player with--patience and hand selection. And, for a beginner not worrying about a buy-in when mistakes are made can be huge.

I agree that a player isn't going to learn much about how to play from the other players in these. However, if they want to put to use the information that they have read on basic strategy from books or forums, it's not that bad a place to do it.

Ill tell you something I like to play freeroll wise or even low buyin. I like to play HORSE mtts , they are limit and you get your moneys worth. I know thats alittle off topic, but as far as just to be able to enjoy yourself and chillax its good for the gander!! People still play dumbass hands in the holdem stage and maybe stud but they suck in other styles. Freerolls piss me off to always have, its like trying to quit smoking. You always wanna play when you dont have a mtt, but when you have a bankroll it does bother as much. lol guess you have to decipher the code born encripted files!!! :shock:

i never play the UB/FT hosted freerolls anymore. those things were just way too long for so little payoff. you can play for six hours and get like 4 dollars for it, or be donked near the bubble after all that time is just wretched. i don't understand why FT and UB don't have like 10 cent buy-in tourneys with no added money where you could basically do exactly the same thing but they actually would make money off of it...


By the way arrytus, FT does have a 10 cent tourney $1,000 guarantee(rebuy) tourney at 5:35 p.m. ET. Winner gets $240.
This is a good value for a dime.

Open freerolls blow...I would rather lose money in a buyin tourney (dont get me wrong my goal is never to lose any game) than sit through hours of watching horrible play after horrible play its just to painful to watch...and for what 4 or 5 bucks if youre lucky ...no thanks. Im done there too.

Believe me I feel your pain, Freerolls are good but invite some players who just do not grasp the concept of good poker play and happy to see them win at times but it gets hard when you know you have played a hand the right way to only get some wierd results but its better to lose with style then just to play and hope for luck , of which luck is a big part of poker but skill is what gets you in a better position to do well .
