      Hello.
      I have some history with poker both online and live microstakes - small stakes. I want to try something new and I want to start at the bottom with MTT (freerolls) and work my way up through the entry fees.
      Any advices? Feel free to post any thought :f_drink:

      I recommend to post also hands on our Hand discussions for Tournaments board.
      This way you get feedback of forum members how you could play a hand better.

      Best regards,

      Where can I find a hand replayer or something like that? I cant afford Holdem Manger or Pocker tracker at the moment.

      You can use the hand converter weaktight to convert your hand first and than you can replay your hand as well.

      I would shove pre-flop with a 10bb stack. It’s difficult to play post flop with a small stack like that. As played your play seems pretty standard post-flop.
