World Record Tourney 2014

Find the tournament in the PokerStars client with the tournament ID #861705905



Here's our Top Tips for playing large low buy-in or freeroll tournaments :

1) Tight is right! There is nothing or little to lose in freeroll and low buy-in tournaments, which is why a lot of players go nuts. They invest too many chips into vulnerable hands. Play the opposite - play only strong hands like Ace-King or Jacks and you already have an advantage.

2) Raise high preflop! When you decide to play a hand, raise a big amount to get maximum value. Don't be afraid of raising 10 times the Big Blind to enter a pot. Especially in the early stages of a freeroll, you will get at least one caller most of the time.

3) Play straight! When you hit something good on the flop, turn or river - like top pair with top kicker - bet big. In a freeroll or low buy-in tourney, a lot of players check more often than they bet. Don't try to get tricky with slowplaying.

4) Don't bluff! When many opponents are loose, it's not a good idea to bluff. Be patient, wait for valuable hands and let the others pay you off.

5) Play aggressively on the bubble! Most opponents in these kind of tourneys play passively - especially when there are only a few places left until the money. Use it for your advantage and play aggressively.


Get involved!






Best of Luck!

Pressed it! Although the page won't let me press the button more than once, the way you can keep pressing an elevator button until it arrives at your floor


It says 'already registered', but I'm not showing as being registered in the tourney. 8hrs and counting - maybe the tickets are all gone already?

If so, thank you PSO for making some tickets available to us at such a nice price - will have to be faster next time !
