TOURNAMENT TIPS

Freeroll in Various Stages

 

Freeroll tournaments are online poker tournaments where no entry fee is required to enter. Player play for free and stand a chance to win cash prizes. Such poker tournaments offer a very good opportunity for new players to hone their poker skills and also gain a bankroll. But with a large pool of players playing, it is sometimes very difficult to win at these tourneys. So what should your poker strategy be to win at freerolls, read on to find out:

  • Early stage: Watch your stack in the early stages and never let it go below table average. The early stages of a tournament are always the best to increase your chip stack as the new players have a tendency to go all in. when faced with such a situation and having good starting poker hands, press the button and get the advantage. Don’t bluff too often at this stage since most players will be new and you might get many callers.
  • Mid stages: if you have managed to reach this stage, then it’s time to loosen up a bit. Try a mix of hands and portray a loose aggressive playing style. You can also try bluffing a bit here; since the blinds are going up now and not many players are keen on playing too many hands.
  • Later stages: This is the most important time of a freeroll tournament. You are approaching the bubble stage and thus it is time to tighten up. Don’t play too many hands, just stick to the rules of poker and play your best poker hands. The blinds are high now and stealing the blinds now and then can also build some bankroll. But don’t get into big pots with bad cards as the bubble stage approaches. Let the lower stacks drop out and keep a tight approach.
  • Final table: If you have made it this far, then you are surely developing into a better poker player. Play your position now and raise when in good position and having good cards. Most players here will also be new like you and be wary of playing too often. Don’t keep too low a profile as sometimes not taking a risk can leave you at the end. Remember only the top 3-4 positions generally pay out in a freeroll so the task is to finish in the money. Thus take the risks when dealt good hands, pressurize your amateur opponents with value bets and try and increase your chip stack.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
