Freerolls - advices
At first it should be noted that the freeroll is a tournament with a real win, for participation in which you do not need to pay money. In other words, to participate in such tournament is allowed for free. Together with this you will not be able to win much – the winnings are small. But freerolls are the best way to accumulate a starting bankroll without risking your own cash. This type of tournament has its own characteristics.
Features of frerolls
The main difference between freerolls is in the players. Most often in the freerolls take part poker players with little experience or newcomers, who until this time generally did not hear anything about this game. In rare cases, you can meet experienced players in freerolls, because they reasonably consider participation in such tournaments as a waste of time.
Participating in freerolls, many are guided by the goal of earning their first bankroll. For some, participation in such tournaments serves to kill time, relying solely on luck and not having any strategy. For some, participation is the acquisition of skills and knowledge, without the goal of getting the grand prize. Knowing who you are playing with is much easier to build a strategy and win the tournament. By the way, on PokerMatch, freerolls are held every day.

What to do in order to win freerolls
There is no perfect formula for winning in freerolls. Should be guided by certain tips.
Firstly, it is necessary at the very beginning of the game to ask the installation to win. However strange it may sound from the outside, this tactic in the long run will help you become a winner. Given the frequent holding of freerolls, do not be too upset at the loss, because you still do not risk anything and do not lose anything.
Often after losing in freerolls, the player will lose the desire to again try to continue the game, and his poker career is crossed before it starts. Do not do this. The main task is to play as many freerolls as possible. The more you play, the faster chances of winning will increase. In addition, this type of tournaments is an excellent training.
At the very beginning of freerolls, you must apply a tight style, in other words, draw only very strong combinations. Many people are puzzled why they are so cautious, because the chips are free and there is no risk. This is the paradox, because the overwhelming majority of freeroll members think so, as a result they go all-in even with weak hands. Leading a tight game, you increase the chances of waiting for a strong hand and win chips from those who are in a hurry to part with them. What is the reason for this?
The reason lies in the fact that the vast majority of players in freerolls have zero experience and have not developed a strategy. Luck plays a role, but not decisive. Therefore, do not go all-in just because everyone does it.
It is necessary to watch the competitors more closely. It's important to learn quickly how to identify rivals who are serious about the game. They will be your opponents in the game in later distributions. Having determined such players, you will be able to resort to such technique as bluffing. But remember: it is acceptable only in relation to tight players, who are also serious about winning.
After the end of the first half of the freeroll, you should expect some changes in the pace of the game. This is due to the fact that the participants, who hoped only for luck, will leave the game and only serious rivals will remain. It's time to think about changing the strategy and resorting to using a neat and deliberate bluff. The main thing is to learn the habits of rivals, and then you will be able to accurately determine the style of the game and confidently move to victory.
