Poker Freeroll Tournaments

A Freeroll is an online tournament of poker, which costs nothing for playing, but a heavy price pool is associated with it. The room that hosts poker is also responsible for sponsoring these Freeroll’s and putting real money, gifts or merchandise in the price pool. This works as a tool for promoting online poker rooms. Many poker rooms host several small Freerolls, while others host only few but with big prizes.


There are strong chances for any poker player to win serious money through Freeroll. All you have to do is play the game you love! A lot of effort and time goes into arranging the Freeroll. Some negotiation is required by the Poker platform, Freeroll organizer and the affiliate side of the poker room. The main aim of each one is giving away as well as making money. The affiliate program gives a fee to the organizer for every player that is referred. This money is then used by the organizers in the guaranteed prize pool for Freeroll. In case not many players join, the remaining part of guaranteed prize pool is left with the organizer as ‘cover’. When many players join in, the organizer has strong chances of becoming a winner as well as a loser. Arrangement of freerolls in a poor manner can be a very expensive affair.

Poker Edge

Players are the biggest winners of poker freerolls. There is hardly anything to lose in poker freerolls and in order to take advantage each player needs to pay a small amount to become eligible. If you are also interested then put in your money, register for Freeroll and try your luck in the pool of prizes.

The main question that arises is-how to approach a Freeroll and what are the strategies required for success? Anything can be expected in the initial stages of a tournament. The best thing is to sit back and play, to get a feel of your table. Never hesitate in pushing in your chips with big hands. Since you are into this without any cost, don’t be afraid in showing aggression of the good sort, but make sure it is selective aggression and not blind betting. When the money position approaches, many players get scared to play all but premium hands. As a player you can advantage of this situation, steal blinds and build up your stack. If you are able to do this well, you will get a lot of chips once money is easy to reach and also stand a good chance to win the main prize.
