Freeroll strategy

LARSON7LARSON7 Member Posts: 4,483
Looks like a really nice promotion that will please a wide range of players.

What’s your strategy going to be? Gamble, fast and loose? Or nice and steady? A bit of both?

Winning score for week 1? I’ll have a stab at 68 bounties.

    Sounds like fun and one that should suit me too :)

    It will be fun to see how they play out as they aren't a normal BH as you don't get any money for knocking someone out, just points, although the first one will be carnage for sure!

    I will be playing it steady at first, just keeping in and then trying to pick off some in the mid to late stages and take it from there. That may change as the week goes on and it will be interesting to see how people play on the last one of the week.

    I'm going to have a go at 42 for the first week with the winner every day getting about 20. It's going to be very hard to run well in these consistently.

    I like the idea of shoving the first few orbits if it seems right.

    Aggro first couple of days for sure, (play draws aggressively etc, but not crazy any two) then see how you stand and adopt approach accordingly. Best of luck guys.

    Gunna be a bit more conservative, I say winning score, 38 bounties.

    Hopefully, all will play fair.

    I have got a cunning plan......

    I am going to play tighter than a Scotsman at a Bar for the 1st game. Not bothered about bounties. Hopefully, I will fold my to the cash and have enough to play the next freeroll.

    No change there then

    68 is a bit optimistic, if it was play your cards right would go lower on this :smile:

    Would agree need to be super aggro in first couple of days and take a lot of marginal spots.

    Mumsie dunno about jamming every hand 1st few orbits, might have Maxally, Dues or Allan23 on the table finding a tight call with QQ :D

    Does anyone know how many heads the winner took yesterday?

    After taking three heads last night, my strategy for tonight was to eat a pizza whilst rewatching Mad Men and miss reg by two minutes.

    Good strategy, will no doubt try it again.
  • JingleMaJingleMa Member Posts: 1,319

    Haha unlucky @SR23.

    I ran my KK into AA without cashing or picking up any bounties, so you did better than me, at least you had pizza and mad men!

    @PKRPar,

    That seems odd. Been no other complaints that I'm aware of (so far...) & 33 players are registered, which is a similar number to this time yesterday.

    If the problem persists, you'll need to speak to CC.
