A poker freeroll tournament is a tournament with no entry fee, although some poker freerolls require a payment at some point to gain entry to the tournament.
Freerolls at online poker sites can be genuinely free, may require a payment of points (from a point system developed by the site), or on some occasions require a deposit of funds into the player’s account. The winnings are either real money, points, merchandise or entry tickets (invitations) to other tournaments.
Most if not all online poker sites have freerolls although in many cases require a payment of points to play. These points typically can only be earned by paying and playing real money hands which in essence is a payment required to play their ‘freerolls’ and therefore a loose use of the term ‘freeroll’. There are Internet sites that allow playing in freerolls without payment of any kind and with the chance to win real money.
When deciding to go on and enter a freeroll you must pick a moment when your patience resources are at the top measure. These types of tournaments last a lot mostly because there are many players involved.
After entering, you must play more aggressively than you would usually do. When having a hand like AA or KK you must raise or increase the bid. You will surely get a call, because of so many participants. And you need at least one or two or the bid will lose its power after the flop.
You must play fewer hands. Just wait for the proper cards and play them aggressively. If in normal poker tournaments, played for money, people don’t call all the time when they see a big raise from an aggressive player, in freerolls things usually are quite the opposite. If a bad hand appears, drop it. Drop even hands like 6-6, 4-4. But try not to be predicable because some players might keep an eye on you and if you end up playing the finals with them they can tell the way your playing style.
