Party Poker has never been my favourite site, primarily because it doesn’t have a great choice of games, in particular there are no razz or stud hi lo tournaments. Having said that, it has a fair selection, including a decent number of freerolls, some totally free, others that require qualification, for example through a points buy-in. It also runs frequent promotions, which can include freerolls. The screengrabs below, in chronological order, are all from Party Poker.
March 9, 2012: Runner up in the $6 stud.
March 24, 2012: Quad 8s in the $6 stud tournament.
April 10-11, 2012: Flopping 8s full in the late night freeroll.
April 26, 2012: Third in a small turbo tournament.
May 5-6, 2012: Flopping quads in the late night freeroll. Having been in 9th place at one point. I finished 64th of 9,923 runners winning 32c.
May 25, 2012: Rolled up 8s; everybody folds to a raise.
May 29, 2012: Third in a small buy-in tournament.

June 4, 2012: Jacks full first 5.
June 18-9, 2012: 8s full crush AK in a late night sit ‘n’ go.
July 6, 2012: A magic river leads to pocket 6s beating the bullets, but I was out the very next hand with a pocket pair.
July 12, 2012: A house of jacks in one of the stud tournaments.
July 12, 2012: Rolled up kings can’t improve, and lose heads up. This was very painful because it was the second time in the same tournament I’d started with a prial and lost.
July 14, 2012: Deuces full split the pot at Omaha hi lo, but look at the hand that folded. If I call with this garbage, I make a straight flush!

September 4, 2012: Congratulations, you have won 13c.
September 4, 2012: Flopping a small house in the late night freeroll. No callers.
