When it comes to playing the freeroll and the small stake tournament, you should always start after making a proper strategy if you want to have winning chances in the game.
These games are generally very different from other online poker games, which require a particular entry fee. Unless you know how to play your cards and your opponents in this freeroll, you are going nowhere fast with any kind of money. Just because you are not up against the usual 3000 people does not mean yours is a shoe-in for the money.
The structure of blind
The blind in freeroll poker tournaments increase in a substantial pace.
When you hold such value of chips, which is less than ten times the value of the blind then you should definitely consider moving all in.
Whenever you are short in your hand, do not stick with your chips and move them to the centre so that you can start with a strong hand.
Change gears and begin to play a «raise or fold» strategy that will help you survive to the final few tables where «in the money» means a significant portion of the prize pool.
The best time to attack is when nobody has put anything in the pot. It is so because; it is easier to compel people to fold when they are not loosing anything.
All-Ins! Just this in itself can make someone go on tilt enough to call with their mid pair and lose. Maintain your patience and do not call all-ins without the nuts or a great hand (two pair or better) unless you know you most likely have the person beat.
In case you have considerable amount of chips with you from the freeroll then you should wait and play patiently.
Possibly the most interesting advantage of freerolls is the fact that you can practice different tournament theories and strategies without the overwhelming pressure of finishing in the money to recoup your buy in.
Do not bluff much
Bluffing is a very crucial part of the game when it comes to normal gaming.
Nevertheless, in case of freeroll, they hardly work. As a result, you should play more strategically rather than bluffing. There will be very rare chances when you will be required to bluff but do it very safely. It is also very hard to read players in these games unless you know them beforehand.
It is so manly because people react very weirdly and unpredictably when their money is not involved in the game.
