Value Poker FreeRolls

Almost every poker player starts their gaming experience with the free poker tournaments called “freerolls”. This type of tourney allows every player to enter without paying any fee and win real money. There are a few sites which are particularly generous when it comes to such tourneys.
Poker Room has its 300$ daily freeroll which is always full with 3000 players so you need to be fast to sign. On the top of it you can play for qualifying for the grand 100 000$ free tourney or win a seat at PokerIsland.
Crazy Poker has even better daily tournament: 500$ and every Saturday 1000$ but the players are more and it is not so easy to take part of the pie.
My favorite poker site: Full Tilt Poker has two interesting options: daily 100$ freeroll plus 1000$ guarantee tournament (the price normally goes up to 1500$) for only 0.1$ (I consider it freeroll).
PDC Poker and Absolute Poker have the most regular freeroll scheme with tourneys on almost every two hours. The prices are small 50$ but again it is great chance to sharpen your skills and test the software.

There are lot other opportunities: freerolls for first depositors are much more lucrative or satellites where you can start with freeroll and end playing for millions of dollars.

If you want to have always by your site a good freeroll calendar you can add our FREEROLL GRAPHIC to your favorites – the info there will be fresh.

The PokerStrategy business model

You are wondering why we are making a cost-free and non-committal offer and giving away starting capital? Getting $50+$100 for free without any obligation is hard to believe. We live on our members who play poker on-line at poker platforms. PokerStrategy receives a commission for it from these poker platforms. This commission is financed by the revenues of the poker platform meaning that playing at these poker rooms is by no means more expensive than playing there without registering over PokerStrategy. First of all PokerStrategy invests $50 starting capital in every member so that the member - you! - can learn poker risk free without depositing your own money. You can release an additional $100 bonus for free while you are playing. PokerStrategy only gets a commission if the members is playing poker. That means it is in PokerStrategy's as well as your interest if you play well and increase your starting capital. If our members gamble away their starting capital PokerStrategy does not get any provision. Therefore typical gamblers are not our target group.
The better you play and the higher the stakes you are playing at, the higher the commission. PokerStrategy and you have the same goal: If you win, also PokerStrategy wins! And the more you win, the more PokerStrategy wins. Thus it is an advantage for both sides. Because of this we are keen to offer high quality knowledge, coaching and interesting promotions to our members. The bigger part of the on-line poker players is just playing for fun and does not have the necessary strategic knowledge to play poker successfully. Therefore the members of PokerStrategy have a big advantage which will directly affect your winnings. We can invest the $50+$100 starting capital in you with a clear conscience because we are positive about our offer. The experience and our big community show that we are first class when it is about making you an excellent poker player.

Deuce on the river

As I already mentioned in my previous post 2’s are my favorite cards and I often catch something when I play them. On this particular situation I was overplayed by my opponent and we were all in with two pairs each. Them I was extremely lucky and on the river caught the second deuce.
