hi everyone, just wanted to know what people think, i've heard there are more badbeats in freerolls because of bad software, is this true or does it seem there is more badbeats because there are more people in each pot on freerolls?

Hi the dread777. Welcome to the forum. Here is an overview of the site to help you find your way around.

More players going to showdown does increase the chances of a bad beat happening. In a freeroll there are lots of marginal hands taken to showdown, thus more bad beats. You can use the odds calculator to find out what the odds of any hand winning the pot against any combination of hands.

Good luck

Hi and welcome, Yes as Doug said, when playing Freerolls people will go in with any 2 cards. the reason is because it's free, they didn't have to pay money to get into the tournament, although I still get peed off, because I go in with the better hand ect and they win, someone said to me " A fish will get more chips in his life time than the average poker player, but the average poker player will get more money than the fish " These are true words, just use these freerolls as a starting ground on how to play poker, and to get used to the game, I'm still learning, and I'm still doing the FPP Broze Tourny's

These are good to try and build your bankroll. I hope this helps, you and good luck at the tables!
