There is indeed plenty of free money out there, but easy it ain’t.


The $50 limit hold ’em freeroll on Party Poker, September 3, 2012. Flopping the nut straight.

The first two screengrabs here are from the daily $50 limit hold ’em freeroll on Party Poker on September 3, 2012. There were 3,234 runners and 400 places paid. I finished 88th winning 7c.

The rest are from the Depositor Freeroll on PokerStars held at 20.00 London time on October 2, 2012. There were 21,542 runners, 3,150 places paid, 6,470 rebuys and 926 add-ons. The prize pool was $3,218.80.

The secret with these special freerolls is never to rebuy, that way you can never lose, even though you may not win.

The 20.00 Depositor Freeroll on PokerStars, October 2, 2012. Our hero flops a set, and it holds up.

The 20.00 Depositor Freeroll on PokerStars, October 2, 2012. I raised pre-flop with AJ and assumed I was ahead on the flop so bet into it, and the guy with the house raised. I figured I was probably ahead though thought he might have KQ or even QJ, so we both ended up all-in and the others folded. Imagine my surprise when he showed queens full. Imagine his horror when the case jack hit the turn. Who says good things never happen to nice people?
