All about OUR Freerolls!

What ARE Freerolls, Anyway?

Let's start at the beginning. A BANKroll is the figurative--and literal, in some lucky cases--"roll" of cash that a player has to start out. His "bank" with which to buy-in, add-on, etc. Every player needs one, and some don't have one to begin with.

Hence: FREErolls.

A Freeroll is a poker tournament where the buy-in is $0 (or, "FREE") yet carries a real money prize pool. It's a way to start a bankroll with nothing other than your skill and tenacity. There have been notable and legendary stories of players who have made a considerable sum from starting out with freerolls.

We won't get into the strategy of freerolls here, or their considerable difficulty--some have compared them to mine fields, always dodging the next lucky shot--short of saying that you can find all that information in our Poker Strategy section. (How's THAT for an unabashed plug?)
