I play in a daily freeroll (noon London time) that is really of interest only to microstakes and recreational players - the top prize is $13. It's fun, though. I've won it once, made the final table a few times, and get past the bubble about once a week. It typically gets just over 400 entries.
What's slightly crazy about it is the blind structure - they go up every minute. Effectively, every hand.
This means there's very little 'normal' play, except maybe in the first few hands. It's pretty much all push-or-fold. Because when the blinds reach you the second time, or maybe even the first, you're going to be all-in anyway. If you're going to survive, you need to double up early.
So far so simple.
After a couple of orbits, though, slowplaying becomes directly linked to possible profit. Those blinds are knocking people out so fast that just hanging around makes money.
So, my question is - at what point do you switch, from fastplay to try to find a hand to double up with, to slowplay to try to outlast other people? A lot of the guys who've played this freeroll a lot seem to switch at about 200 players left (the bubble is usually at 50th). It seems to be about right but I wonder if anybody has any different opinion.
If you want to try this one, it's the PaddyPower FastFood Freeroll.
