      I've just won 2.45$ in the monthly freeroll on Fulltilt and I really don't know how to use it effectively. Obviously I can't use the 2% rule.
      If anyone knows a strategy for this situation, like what SNG's, tourneys or cash games I should play, I'd be glad to follow it.

      Thanks!

      Well pick the lowest limit with the lowest variance.

      TO THE 2c4c FR LIMIT TABLES!!!

      Oh yeah, freerolls too.

      If your a Sng player, why not try grinding the 25c+5c Sat to Daily $ on Full Tilt.

      They're pretty soft and you can un-reg those you win for T$.
      You'd still have to get pretty lucky with just an 8xBI starting roll though.

      Another option is to try to cash in more freerolls to build up a more robust BRM.

      Let us know what you decide to do... cash, sngs or tournaments and how you get on.

      Congrats on cashing today, well played.

      i think you should do a 1 dollar 6 man sit an go pl omaha these are so easy because alot of omaha learners tend try learn at theses stakes so when they get the likes of KK and AA they think there good so be aggressive and selective here you'll come good just playfor 2nd place

      what ever youdo
      good luck with it

      I'll go with Bart.

      Play the Daily Dollar sats on FTP. Don't trade de T$ you can use them with no -$EV on the sngs. Grind until you get about $20 and then u can try to take a shot to $1 until at least $100.

      It's hard, but it works out.

      Thanks for all advices. I guess the best option for me now is Daily $ Sng's, so I'll try my luck there. :)

      I'm not sure if there are Double or Nothing tournaments in FTP but I think they are the easiest to play. Give a shot to them if the Rake is not a killer.

      You'll get a tourney ticket, not T$, I am pretty sure. They rarely give T$ now for anything they have tickets for.

      Hi All!
      I believe they give you Tourney Tickets.
      I suggest 1$ Matrix SnGs for you. You register for 1$, and you get 4 tables. The variancie is much much less than in normal SnGs, and also it can be quite profitable.

      Just to confirm, if you win the Sat to daily dollar (cash entry), they automatically reg you in the tournament, but when you unreg it provides you with $T.

      Mardy is quite right, in most tournaments now you just get a ticket, but daily $ sats still provide $T.

      I would urge the OP to consider what they would prefer to play as this is also important. Need to decide if your happier with sng's or cash tables etc.

      My only concern with suggesting the Matrix is that they would only have 2xBI, albeit with 4xtables each. You would have to finish high up however to stand a chance of the 5th prize.
      At least with the 30cent sngs you would have 8 or 9xBI and only need to cash 2 for break even.

      Entirely up to the OP though, I don't want to influence them at all, just providing infomation with which to decide themselves.

      Good luck with whatever you decide ;)

      Best regards,


      Bart

      I only remember from the crazy steps challenge i did. Still play those micros occasionally, good laugh. :D

      You are right though, in general they've replaced most things with tourney tickets.


      Brat (not a typo :D )


      Edit: If you enter the FTP points version, you would get FTP points back instead of $T, it has to be cash/$T entry to get $T back.
