When online poker came along, I mainly played tournaments. I first started by playing freerolls. Back in the day, there were so many different sites competing for business that freerolls were abundant. The fields were massive. The play was abysmal. All-ins were as common as calls at the beginning of those tournaments.
I still remember my biggest freeroll accomplishment. There were more than 9,000 entrants and a total prize pool of $5,000. I played for more than ten hours straight. I ended up finishing 4th with a $250 payout. There was a lot of luck involved but I will always be proud of outlasting 9,450 players!
The poker journey has come full circle.
