Online Freerolls Tips

Posted by on 7/6/2011 5:10:40 PM

A freeroll tournament is free, offers real prizes, and provides great poker action. When you are playing a freeroll tournament it is not quite like playing a regular tournament because everyone is playing fast and loose so your strategy has to be different if you expect to win.

Before you begin playing a freeroll tournament keep in mind that it will take a while to play. Most of them will take three hours or more to finish so you need to have that time set aside.  You also have to be prepared to win nothing. Most of these freeroll tournaments don’t pay out very many places so it takes a very good finish to get into the money. One thing that you do get though is experience. That is good news and bad news. The good news is you get to play tournament poker. The bad news is that the play is not the same as in a normal tournament.

Different Play
The biggest difference in a freeroll tournament is the style of play. Early in the tournament it really can be an all-in fest where players go all-in with any two cards. There is a method to this madness. Some players will try and build huge stacks by going all-in with nearly anything. These players are trying to get a big stack early or they are going to go broke. They are great for you if you get a big hand against them and take all their chips but you hate these players if they outdraw your big hand and bust you. You really have to adjust your strategy because it is a freeroll. For example, let’s say you are playing in a freeroll tournament and have A-Q on the button. This is a very nice hand but what happens if the maniac goes all-in right in front of you?  You probably have to call even though in a normal game you probably wouldn’t.

You are also going to playing people who are in the tournament just for fun. This type of player could hold any two cards and play them any way. These players are very unpredictable. The freeroll tournament is a great place to gain experience but it is against a different field than a normal tournament. You want to remember that a freeroll tournament is a chance to win free money and if you want to have a real shot to win then you must play loose and be aggressive. You have to build a big stack and use it. That is really the only way to win a freeroll.
