The PokerStars Depositor Freerolls

By Alexander Baron     Sep 22, 2012 in Entertainment
The world's top poker sites are offering bundles of free money, but sometimes you have to use your wits to get you hands on it.
Want a free entry and package to the World Sit 'N' Go Masters in Prague? Ladbrokes and many other sites are still offering this, but better hurry up, because although it won't cost you a penny, there is a lot to do to qualify.
Titan Poker has just picked up a good few new players following its absorption of Celeb Poker, and is currently offering a slew of promotions, some old, some new, including a top hand of the day prize and a bad beat jackpot. Check them out here.
Two sites that are offering ongoing good value promotions are William Hill and PokerStars. So, how do you get your hands on that free money? First, if you are not a member, you can sign up to both of them and many others here. William Hill offers a Sunday Facebook Freeroll, so you must also have or sign up for a Facebook account and "like" William Hill on the relevant page.
PokerStars offers many daily freerolls; these are satellites, so you must first qualify and then use your winning ticket to enter the relevant main event later in the week. It is also offering a number of depositor freerolls. In order to qualify you must deposit a minimum of $10 on the site using the special bonus code, you will then be issued with a ticket which you can use and reuse at present four times a day for the whole month. So what can you win? Below are some screengrabs with annotations by our resident poker junkie. The first series is from a London player who patronises William Hill and likes to boast about his winnings to his colleague. The second is from the current writer.

The second screengrab from the same tournament. According to AuntieEdna, the player with pocket 10s raised, and he (yes, Auntie is a he!) raised all-in. The muppet with suited connectors won the hand with a straight on the river, but he was short stacked, and the jacks won the side pot.
AuntieEdna wins another big pot  this time when pocket kings hold up against pocket 6s and 9-8.

A-Q outflops pocket 6s. AuntieEdna finished in 57th place winning £1.60.

AuntieEdna pocketed £1.60; the big question is can our hero do better? Well, he was facing a lot stiffer opposition!

Deep in the tournament, our hero folds pocket 7s to a raise from Anette Lisa, and Hades050 wins the pot with a pair of 9s. Many players can literally never fold an ace.

This is the reason I don't like raising with a pocket pair smaller than kings. SISKOKIDD raised with his pocket 10s. Now what does he do when the player immediately behind him re-raises all in?

The last hand for our hero; very short stacked he is all-in with pocket aces and is ahead until a cruel river makes the guy playing suited connectors two pairs. I finished 467th winning 96c.
