I'm Free....FreeRolling...

Rate this Entry
I'm a big fan of a live poker game. And here recently, a buddy of mine on SCF named Ryan (Rhyno24) and I have partaked in a couple of hold'em games with a box of cards on the line.

This got me thinking about my days of playing online poker. Online is a different beast than a live game, mainly because it's a lot easier for players to play looser online as your can't get a read on someone watching a computer screen (unless you've played the same player numerous times).

So I remember poker pro Chris Ferguson turning $0 into $10000 and I think I will try to do the same. So this means playing freerolls to attempt to get my bankroll started.

A freeroll is a tournament with no entry fee that has prizes for the top finishers. I will be doing this on Full Tilt Poker. I played a warmup freeroll tourney to see if I still had some online skills and finished 936th out of 2700.

So now begins my quest on 2/24. Keep checking in as I will update this blog with my result and some highlights/lowlights of my tourney. I figure it will take me a while to get money out of a freeroll, so be patient.

    Well...played in my first tourney...finished 223rd out of 2700. Got all my chips in with pocket Jacks (around 10K) and got called. The other person had 4,7 suited. Ends up hitting his flush on the river. Absolute donkey call...but what can you do...

    Well....took a little time off as I had to work on other things...just played again and busted out in 49th. Had AQ and a Q came on the flop. Went all in, only to run into someone holding KK. What can you do. Played spot on and just ran into a better hand...

    Played again last night...was doing good for a while, then kept getting beat on donkey calls and river bad beats. Ended up 480th out of 2700. I had J 10 and the flop came 4 J 10 and two were hearts. I pushed all in with top 2 pair. I got called by a guy playing 9 10 and the 9 was a heart. So of course, he catches runner, runner for the flush.

    Had a couple of strong showings lately with a couple of top 100 finishes, but have yet to get into the money.

    Seems like a long time of playing to win so little. 1st place gets only $15 out of the 2700 person field.

    Hey, i didn't know about money maker doing that or you. But I did that a while ago. I cashed out everything before they made it illegal and what not. Got my BR up with 2 FR games, got in the penny tables and have not played in a long time for more than like 5 hands. I think its sitting around 30 dollars or so. GOOD LUCK
