Freeroll Poker Tournaments and How To Win


 
Gambling
Freeroll poker tournaments are a bonanza for all poker players. Many of today's top poker professionals got their start in an online freeroll tournament. Freerolls usually have a mixture of poker players from experienced to inexperienced . There is a method to winning most of them and this method will usually place you well in most poker tournaments freeroll or not. This article will cover how to win freeroll poker tournaments.

In the first period of a freeroll, you tend to see many inexperienced players going all-in with very little in terms of hands. Some players will go all-in with an unsuited two and five. But the fact is cards are cards and they still might win. In my experience, though it may be tempting, don't go all-in based on seeing player go all-in and feel you will get their chips. Stick to good strategy high pairs and high cards carry the most weight. Also to note, some of these players might not be inexperienced but instead have a freeroll is free attitude and not be applying themselves the way they would in a fee to join tournament. Your goal is to win as much as possible with the least investment. One strategy that really counts is to milk a good hand for all the chips you can get. For example, you get dealt a pair of aces and the flop reveals one ace and two kings. Next to a four of a kind or royal flush, you have no competition. If you go all-in right away, you will probably cause people to fold missing out on a chip accumulation opportunity. Instead, raise in graduated amounts. With a high card like king or ace fellow players are more likely to bet if they have these cards in their hand increasing the size of the pot. Or if fellow players have pairs, they may increase their bets as well. At each betting round, increase the pot by betting again. At the showdown, you'll see many more chips than going all-in at the start of the betting rounds. This tight aggressive strategy works across the board with all tournaments.

Another excellent strategy is to sit it out. You may be dealt an unsuited ace and five and a fellow player goes all-in. It may be to your advantage to sit it out. Don't forget any pair will beat the unsuited ace five combo and you'll have fewer chips. Don't take risks with your stack and fold. An alternative strategy is to check out the flop if there is a raise and assess the landscape from that position. If it looks good, raise and if not fold. Don't get in the practice of chasing an ideal hand.

Chasing an ideal hand is the surest way to lose. If you look at most poker wins, they are usually a pair or three of a kind. At the WSOP 2015, it was won with a pair of 10s. It was also a three of kind of 10s that won the WSOP in 2014. The likelihood of a straight or flush is rare. Of course, they happen but they're nothing to bet your stack over. You might look at that tempting pot and your hand and think it's going to win, only to find yourself with less chips because a fellow player has a pair. The best strategy for those hands that may be flushes or straights is to see the flop even if there is a raise and evaluate from there. You might have a flush or straight and then you can make graduated betting increases from there or fold if it's an unlikely combination. Now you see how to bet in freeroll. I'll go over the stages.

During the initial phase, there tends to be many all-in betting scenarios. This is the time to sit it out and wait for great hands only. You might find your chip stack down but you are still in the game. After the initial phase, you will see fewer all-in bets since everyone wants to keep their chips. Your chips should be accumulating by now by playing the winning hands. During the later phases and up to a heads up match, this strategy will work fine. The best place to bet is more often than not at late position.

Betting at the late position is good for three reasons. First, you get to see the raises on the board and can decide if you want to bet. Second, you get to know your fellow players and decide who is a bluffer and who bets only solid hands. Knowing how your fellow players bet will help you in many plays. If a player goes all-in or raises frequently, the chances are slim that each hand is a winning hand. It may be accurate to raise against them as compared to a player who only raises with great hands in the first place. The third reason late position is great is that if a following bettor has a pair of aces or goes all-in, it may be tempting to go all-in and lose chips in the process. For all phases of a poker tournament, these betting strategies will work and lead you to the final table.

In conclusion, freeroll poker tournaments are a great way to play poker , learn the game and build a bankroll. Strategies learned in freeroll are easily applicable to tournaments you have pay to play. Following a strategy and taking notes will increase your empirical knowledge and lead to better outcomes than playing without any strategy at all. Key points are not to chase ideal hands, pairs and three of kinds win more often than straights or flushes and betting at late position will give you more leverage than betting at early position.
