Is posting freeroll questions and hands allright ?

Hello,

I am still very much a beginner both with respect to poker skills and the 2p2 site. I am trying to advance my poker knowledge and build a roll by playing MTT freerolls and studying my hands afterwards.

Are hands from freeroll MTT's welcome in this forum ?

I didn't find any references to my question in the MTT FAQ and looking through some earlier postings in the small stakes MTT section and searching, it seems freeroll hands and questions appear at most rarely. So just wanted to check before getting into

Yes, you're right we don't have much freeroll hands posted here, but I can't see a reason to why they wouldn't be welcome. Go ahead and post!

Re: Is posting freeroll questions and hands allright ?

first of all - welcome to the forum. I for myself are still a kind of newbie here but I am convinced you will find that the informations and advices you can get here are invaluable!!

To your question: nobody will (or even should) tell you that questions from freerolls arenŽt welcome here. As far as I know some known players started their "career" with freerolls.

Nevertheless you should be aware of one thing: the evaluation of hands can be made based on several factors: the two main factors are simple mathematical/algorithmical basics on the one hand (like the EV of a certain hand against a random hand or the probability of hitting a certain draw based on the odds) and opponent-based aspects on the other hand (like assumed raising/calling-ranges etc.). While the first could be made regardless of the limits you play is the second in a very high grade dependent from the structure of the tournament. Said this - the assumptions of the styles and motives of your opponents to do or not to do certain things are somewhat tricky in freerolls. I think this will relativize in the later stages of the freeroll - when players start to have real values to lose if they bust. But especially in the early stages youŽll be presented hands and moves which you neither can believe nor can understand. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

With this prefixed reminder you are welcome (at least by me - whereas I think that the others do as well) to put your questions and hands here in this forum. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Yeah, we'd love to help you with your freeroll posts. But you might want to clarify that it is a freeroll when you post the hand, it might help us out a little. Good luck =)

Are there any sites to point players to where there are good freerolls or overlays? I like the idea of extra money in tournaments.
