888poker Celebrate 100,000 YouTube Subs With Freeroll
888poker is in a celebratory mood after hitting the 100k milestone for their YouTube channel and is now giving back to the poker community with free value.
After putting in considerable effort to make more entertaining content across the board, 888poker is now seeing the fruits of its labor.
In the past year, they have brought on board names like Jack Mate, who has helped expand 888poker’s core audience beyond the felt. They also added poker pro Ian Simpson who has built up a widespread reputation amongst the UK poker community with his content and poker focus.
After hitting a key target in the YouTube space, 888poker has decided to reward poker fans through a $5,000 freeroll giving infinite EV for poker players on 888.
How Do I Play in the 888poker Freeroll?
To partake in the freeroll, all you need to do is be subscribed to the 888poker YouTube channel and stay tuned in for the video when they give away the password to the freeroll - a handy tip would be to turn notifications on, so you can know when the password has been released.
The title for the freeroll is ‘YouTube 100K Subscribers Celebration Freeroll,’ and it will take place on Saturday, February 4, at 20:30 GMT.
How to Win An Online Poker Freeroll
Once you have subscribed to the 888poker YouTube channel and got the password for the $5,000 freeroll, you should begin getting ready to claim your lion's share of the prizepool.
Here are some strategy tips on how to take down the 888poker freeroll:
Play it Tight
Early on, you might see lots of multiway and all-in action despite the deep blinds; this isn’t a reason for you to get involved, however. These are usually the moves done by inexperienced and lousy poker players - so beware for lots of non-standard poker actions early on in the freeroll.
Push The Pedal on The Bubble
Once the wild play from the early stages dies down, you will see more “normal” poker tournament play. If you can generate a decent stack before the bubble bursts, you put yourself in a great spot to grind up some more chips. Put the pressure on the shorter stacks you cover and make them fearful ahead of the money. No one wants to bubble, even if it is a freeroll.
Get Max Value
You should only play one strategy to get the maximum possible when you have top pairs with decent kickers and above. This will mean you will have to overbet, bet pot, and do some more significant raises than you would prefer - but the more inexperienced players will happily pay you off with their draws or weaker holdings.
Spot The Sit-Outs
If you see people sitting out, you should make a big mental note that it changes the dynamic of how you should play. Whether it is having you open wider from the UTG or flatting in later positions, you should be ready to take advantage of short-handed pots where there is dead money available.
