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.
