do any of you participate in free rolls?

What sites offer the best action with the least amount of players? Do you play like a maniac or let the maniacs crush each other? What are the best sites to play them at?

If I get a ticket or an e-mail to play in one, I always do if I have the time. I don't think there's any other strategy to use other than playing your normal tournament game.There is maniacs everywhere on every site and even when they knock me out with garbage I am rest assured that they rarely make the money. If you play good tight aggressive poker and have patience you can usually make the money.

I enjoy the smaller ones, it seems like a waste of time for me to try and play 4000 players for 6 hrs only to lose on the bubble or to a garbage hand. There's a site that gives you tokens for free rolls by the amount of points you gain weekly and there's usually less than 20-40 players in a few of them with very good cash prizes for very little time invested. If any of you are interested you can e-mail me thru support here and I'll get you the link.

hahah yep 4000 people and up it takes so long and to go out at the bubble it sucks ive try it play that many people i even tried 12000 youre going to loose concetration when you played 4hours and if youre getting bad beats mostly you do in a big tourney like that a few times in a row it will drive you crazy haha its hard to stack up again when people are calling or going allin whatever you do.

ya I'll play the freerolls but find in the larger tourns there are still many sitouts . then u have to play against these morons that love to go all in and they got no cards,Its a good way to double upif ur at the table long enough to fiqure those players out, full tilt has the right idea- they limit some games to 225and 450 and start every 4-5 mins there special freerolls that are for countries are limited to 2700 hope this new forum considers a freeroll for its new members

FREE ROLLS...DID SOMEONE SAY FREEROLLS :p!!! I find them to be the best way to build a BR, gain experince & confidence!!! I play them all over, I don't care how many are in them, be it the FTP Canadian (over the last 3 months, I had 2 money finishes and numerous bubble outs), GNUF has all sorts of different types of FR's (5 card stud, Omaha, limit, and of coarse NL) and they have a special, if you play so many raked hands in the previous 24 hrs, you get a larger starting stack, there's alway upwards of 6000-12,000 players in them too! Party Poker had some big ones a few years ago. My first tournament there was a 6000 player witha $1000 prize pool (it was before the US ban) and I got a 6th (my first experince in being able to push over 10 million chips, gawd it felt sooo goood!!) I'll play some FR's @Tiger, but all of thiers have rebuys & add-ons, but they do have some cheap ptr freerolls (they to have rb's/add-ons??? .25) that pay the top 20 or 30 and they never have that many players in them. I used to play in all the pointers on the IPoker till they dropped them, but CD still has some ptrs on the weekend ($1000/1000 ptr with rb's/add-ons and a qualifier to the $250,000 for 500pts with rb's/add-ons). But the best was last summer. I got an email from CD with one of thier specials, log in and I get $20 and 2 tickets to for a couple of qualifiers ($50,000 guarenttee and a $150,000r/a). Well I crapped outta the $50g qualy, so when it came to the $150g'er qualy there were 128 in it and only the top 10 got a ticket. So I started off playin tight, then about 6 hands into it I hit pocket Kings and I had a slight lead in chips & was in late possition at the table so I raised to 150 to get a few of the callers off (blinds were only 5-10) and I have 2 folds, but one reraised me to 410 so to see if he was bluffing I reraised him putting the other 2/3's of his chips at stake and he called with j9 clubs, well the flop was a little scary (10,8,6, with only 1 club)turn was a 4, and he filled out his straight on the river (Q!!!). Well needless to say I was flabbergasted (and was down to 370 chips & last). Well instead of throwing in the towel, I sat back & started to pick my spots and I ended up finishing in 5th place. When it came time for the main event there were 1210 in it, I hadn't enough for a single rebuy, so I held my cards really tightly in my hands for the first hour, I may have played 4 or 5 hands and was down to about half my starting stack and at the end of the first hour I got AA so I pushed with it and tripled up on the last hand of the first hour (which I find unusual, what usually happens some big stack with rags cracks them). In the second hour my cards warmed up and I found myself on a roll at the end of it. The third hour I tightened up again, playin only premium hands and we were into the payout..I ended up finishing in 27th and getting $870....ntb for free!!!

Sounds like you enjoy the free rolls mothersquatch, I enjoy them as well, I play them on Pacific, PS and FTP when I can get in. If you're a patient player you can usually do well although they do tend to bring out the maniac in all of us due to the sit outs.

I also enjoyed the FTP HU sng's , I actually placed first twice. The only thing wrong with that is the next tourney they had for the NBC HU championship was a 10 man table free roll. I was very dissapointed to say the least. Why would they have 2 different stuctures HU and then full table NL to qualify? It never made any sense to me and I just stopped trying.

playing freerolls can lead to bad habits in that your inclined to take risks that you might not take if you invested on an entry fee. you also can gain alot of expierence keeping an eye on ur oppenents playing habits --whether their aggressive or passive
