Become A Freeroll Whore

Last post I made about poker was called "Make Money Online Playing Poker" I talked about getting started by signing up and entering freeroll tournaments. (Freeroll = Free) Today I am going to talk about getting into as many freeroll tournaments as you can. (Which makes you a freeroll whore) Each time you play in a free tournament you start to see how you play and how not to lost early in the tournament.

What Is A Freeroll Whore?
A freeroll whore is a poker player that only join free tournaments. They search on google and yahoo to find websites that are hosting a freeroll tournament in a poker room. Since I only play at full tilt poker, I look for forums to join that hold freeroll tournaments.

How To Find Freeroll Tournaments?
Finding freeroll tournaments is pretty easy if you play at full tilt poker. They have daily freeroll tournaments and most of the private freeroll tournaments have details where to go to get the password. But you should not have to go looking for them. (Well not my readers anyway) Here's a list forums that hold free tournaments.

How To Make Money As A Freeroll Whore?
Joining 2 - 5 free tournaments daily will give you the experience to learn how to play poker fairly well. I recommend not going all-in at the beginning of the tournaments. Most people don't care about winning te tournament since its a free tournament. That being said in a tournament of 2,700 people stay focus on the goal of placing in the money positions. Over 1,000 of the players mostly in the tournament just to have fun, another 1,000 or so are beginners. (You are in this group) Don't worry about losing its a free tournament. (You can learn a lot in these tournaments)

The prize pool of freeroll tournaments range from $25 - $100. Which first prize is from $5.50 - $25. Most of the tournaments only allow 900 - 2,700 players with 27 paid positions. Don't get afraid of 2,700 people. Remember most of them are going to go all-in anyway.

Now that you know how to make money online playing poker. Get in the game and win yourself some money. Join me at Full Tilt Poker .

Make Money Online Playing Poker

Over the pass few days I been playing poker at full tilt. Remember I am a very quick learner. So first thing I did was download the software to play. Once I made my account, I went to the "play money" tables. I played a lot of hands then went to the "play money" tournaments. Since its "play money" most people don't care if they win or lost.

Once you find one that you can join its time to build your bankroll. Remember to play a tight at the beginning of the tournament. Let all the beginners and risk takers to get knocked out of the tournament early. Stay focus on your game, once enough people get out of the tournament there will only be "money" positions left.

Ok, let explain what I mean by money position. Lets say there's a tournament only 1st through 20th place win money. There are 600 people in the tournament. Once you see its only 20 people left in the tournament. That means only money positions are left.

Now that you in a money position you can relax a little and just focus on your hands. No matter what happens you still going to win money. So play your hands to have fun and learn the game as you go.
