Short Bio
Poker free rolls differ from cash tournaments only in the minds of the players. Often, players view free roll tournaments as risk free due to no money involved and thus change their style of play. Free roll players tend to gamble it up so to speak; going all in with any two cards or chasing a one card outer. Unfortunately, this type of play can carry over into cash tournaments corrupting a once avid player and now creating a gambler. There is nothing wrong with playing in free roll tournaments, though one should be aware of the possible effects this type of tournament can have on your game.
Always play to win or don’t play at all. Go in to a free roll tournament as if it were the World Series of Poker. Treat every game and every hand as such and you will be a winning poker player. Attitude is a major factor in deciding who’s going home early or who’s taking home the cash.
The early stages of a free roll tournament are fast, use this to your advantage. Sit back and wait for the dust to settle. Bluffing is not effective at this stage, so don’t try it. Don’t go all in when there are multiple players in the pot, even if you have aces or kings. This is a sure way to get sucked out on by the guy playing guts Canada queen five off-suit. If you have a solid hand and are in good position, go for it, but don’t take any unnecessary risks. If you don’t flop it, drop it.
Once the smoke has cleared, this is a good time to start playing position and picking up blinds here and there. This does not mean get hyper aggressive, but at some point you need to increase your stack to stay in and go on to win the tournament. Continue to play solid poker. Nines or better or ace king to ace jack are generally the only hands you want to be playing at this point. Though, every hand is different and sometimes you can drag a monster pot by plying suited connectors in an unraised pot in either late position or as a blind hand. Just use good judgement.
If you find yourself close to making the money, this is the time to get aggressive, though not against short stacks. In the late stages of a free roll or any tournament, many players tighten up in an attempt to make it to the money. There’s nothing more frustrating than going out on the bubble. You can use this to your advantage by stealing blinds and bluffing at pots under good conditions. Remember, if your chips or in play, they are always at risk. Get aggressive, but pick and choose your plays wisely.
