    When I used to play freerolls I tried to maximize the ratio $EV/estimated time used. As I don't really want to spend hours to just finish outside the bubble.

    So basically I am risk seeking in the early stages and shove any two cards. When i have at least quadrupled in chips, then I start playing properly.

    I think this is not a bad idea (as long as you didn't get rakeback anyway)- I ended up winning the UK freeroll 3 times in 3 months- despite not playing everyday (of course I had some run goods).

    At early stakes when blinds are low I'm also trying to see flop with every hand, then as soon as I accumulate proper amount chips I start playing properly :)

    Very useful video, thank you! I wonder if the strategy recommended by wategun7, purple16 and PxKx is actually good. I think I will begin a discussion about it in the forum :)
