      Hello

      As someone who more often than not makes the top 10% places in tournaments, be they cash, freeroll or private (ITM, final table reasonably frequently), I have yet been able to make it past even the late registration stage (40 mins) in PS $100K Privilege Freerolls.

      My hole cards are always shocking and can hardly remember having anything decent in about 5 freerolls. I can remember in one of these where it seemed everyone were resorting to playing trash hand after trash hand and can only assume they were experiencing a similar lack of decent hole cards.

      Anyone else having similar experiences. Any basic tips for these tournaments. I prefer a patient tight-aggressive playing style.

      With such a fast blind structure in these freerolls and large player fields, it's normal not to cash most of them. In the early stages usually it's just waiting for a premium hand and trying to get it in asap.

      I was on the trash hand run recently aswell(not playing freerolls at all)...Its really frustrating as you will start playing them after some time and turn into a donk. :f_biggrin: :f_biggrin:
      You see many players making desperate plays nowadays even in higher buy in tourneys(shoving complete rags, calling super light) I think ps may have changed their card gen after being accused of the setting players up against each other with good hands.

      If you want me to go on tilt the quickest, don't bother bad-beating me with runner-runner one-outers, all you have to do (in tournaments, anyway) is either skunk me or give two walks in a row on a loose table with AA in the blinds.

      My tactics: I wait for 99+ than instant push - get called almost always.

      3 times i ended up in 100 (top 0.5%) and i have about 40-50 % itm.
