So im in a 50k chip playmoney game 27 entries and yes its not real money but the same principle applies, im in 12 spot out of 12 with 390 chips. First comes pair of 7's all in with 3 players.. 7 7 Q flop.. next comes a nice straight then a pair of 2's i get reraised so go all in hit the 2 on the river vs high card. The table is understandably a bit grumpy since I have rivered .
Won several more hands along the way to finally making it to the top 2 heads up...( had 2 pairs of AA and 1 pair KK along the way) . Final hand 6 6 vs K 8 all in on the flop K 8 4 turn..6 and that was the end of the game with me winning 499k chips for my new total of 1.2 mil. Again I know its play money but a tight style with being aggressive at the right time goes a long way to weeding out the donks and fish.
cheers the Hamster

Nice going, it's always nice to win. I spent a lot of time on the play money tables, I know how hard it can be to win there. I was clueless when I started, had no idea you could get more play money. I spent months carefully building my "stack", lmao now.

Seriously, though, you can learn quite a bit with play money, especially if you treat it the same. It's great practice, keep up the good work and it will pay you in the long run.

Good luck!!
