      Last night, I played through 2700 players to finish 55th, where only top 27 were paid. 4 hour session for nada.

      I was amazed at how much play money players suck..... but usually win with runners or busting my QQs with 88s (thats what put me out of the tourney)

      I was hanging around 3rd-10th form the mid stages of the tournament until I started playing very tight and I fell to like 30th and I was in the average because of very bad hands that came coming to me. ALL IN With QQ preflop after 3 limpers.... one of them calls..... i only needed to avoid 2 cards.... 8 and 8
      One of them HITS
      and she wins....
      If i had won.... I wouldve been in like top 10

      SO FRUSTRATING!!!

      Has ANY1 ever won something from this???

      Won the U.K. one once and finished 3rd on another occasion.

      That was quite a while back though, don't really have the time to grind them out nowadays.

      First was $15 or something so not too bad.

      Best regards,

      I used to regularly play the daily $40 African freeroll with around 130 players - top 18 paid, which pretty much was EZ money and added some nice boosts to my starting capital.

      Used to have the 'Sunday Roast Freeroll' every week. About 180-200 players and paid top 10. 1st $1000; 2nd $700; 3rd $500; 4th -10th got $50. Had loads of FTs, once got 2nd and won it twice over 2 yrs. It was actually quite tough though.

      Every once in a while i like to play freerolls to really get out of the money concept.

      I go play just for plain fun, as i get deep it starts getting serious. I want some ~not much~. But some return from my time invested. (Yeah i usually multi table with some tables that give me $+rake).

      I finished a $100 7k freeroll in 2nd once, and from my region twice in 1st and 4 in 4th.

      I try to think about the game per-se instead of thinking all about the money. If i think just for the money. I will play uber loose and just waste my time.

      Sometimes think of the fun. If you need the money because you don't want to deposit just play good. Play money players do suck.

      Oh and imho, i don't know how you're stacks were, but plain shoving sometimes is just wrong. But anyway Daniel Negreanu was just talking these days on twitter how his QQ got busted by 88. It's o.k.
