Poker freerolls are fantastic! There's nothing quite like playing
Texas Holdem freerolls, you get to play Texas Hold ‘Em poker with the
chance of a cash prize – for free. Prizes range from hundreds of dollars
down to a token few dollars for the lower places.
The beauty of online poker freerolls is that as soon as you sign up
to become a member of the freeroll poker site, you can play, usually before you even deposit any money.
The standard of competition
varies a lot between the freerolls, some of the bigger ones have good
players and are hard to win. There
are often some good poker players online and the competition can be
quite tough, especially for the beginner.
The key to success
though lies in not letting yourself get intimidated, just try and use a
bit of "front" and be bold. In the poker freeroll tournaments
you cannot win by just sitting back and calling the odd bet, you need an
aggressive style and have to use regular bluffing in order to progress
to the later stages.
Here's a video of a young guy winning a Full Tilt poker freeroll against 8500 players!
video should give you some inspiration, study it closely and you will see that anybody can do well in the
freerolls with a bit of practice and a good aggressive poker strategy.
in mind that the free poker games have very large player numbers and
you will need to beat a LOT of players to even get into the minor prize
money for the game. You can't do that by getting good cards alone, you
MUST use a successful bluffing strategy or you are done for.
although the standard can be quite good, it is possible to do well.
Online poker free rolls do not attract top players for the simple fact
that the prize money does not make it worth their while to sit for three
or four hours.
And there's loads of them to choose from. Most of the big
poker sites online have daily poker free rolls so you can play several
every day if you want. So check out the timetable, decide which ones
suit you best and start playing Texas Holdem poker for free now.
Poker freerolls are a good training ground for sharpening your skills but most of the tactics you learn will ONLY be good forfreerolls. Most of the time you can't transfer what you have learned to the paid tournaments as the approach needs to be different.
The poker freeroll player is a different breed and often plays only freerolls, never playing with any of their own money so you need to change your tactics to cope with the different type of player you will be up against on the money tables. If you decide to spend a few dollars rather than stick to freerolls (which we would highly reccommend) then you will move up to a whole new level, a level where winning money is easier and prize money a lot more.
