If this is your first venture out into the virtual universe of online poker, or you've made the journey so many times they are considering an all-new-exclusive movie starring you pillaging and conquering your opponents at the poker tables, there are two must-play exclusive freerolls coming up: PokerStars $2,500 special freeroll tournament and the Full Tilt $5,000 special freeroll tournament. And regardless of your skill level, you need a seat in both of them.
Let's Talk Freerolls
You may be very familiar with freerolls ... or not ... but if you believe freerolls aren't worth the time or energy, then you need to go back to Poker 101 and start from the beginning.
A freeroll will give you table experience and help you build your game.
Freerolls can help you in many ways. The first and most important feature of a freeroll is that you can get in and rumble without investing any money. It's a free ride to see if you can win real money or a seat in another tournament that moves you up a ladder of progression to a bigger reward.
Along with being risk-free, a freeroll will give you table experience and help you build your game. While it is true that many players will fire all their chips out every hand, going all-in with reckless disregard, other players will take a freeroll as a serious step in the learning progression and play their best to win.
Winning a freeroll is just as important as winning a buy-in tournament when it comes to the fundamentals of game play. On your road to the top spot, you are going to be able to assess your own skill and learn to make adjustments in your play — again, without investing your own cash — and winning adds a huge measure of confidence to your game.
You are going to find two exclusive freerolls that we are able to offer because of our special relationship with the following online poker sites.
When you find a freeroll with a big cash prize pool, (IF you can even find one), you will normally end up playing against a monster field and all of them are trying to beat you to the top. The great news about exclusive freerolls is that you will play against a much smaller field since only those that qualify are going to win a seat.
The Two Must-Play Exclusive Freerolls
It’s very difficult to find freerolls with a massive prize pool but we’ve gone one better, instead of finding one, you are going to find two exclusive freerolls that we are able to offer because of our special relationship with the following online poker sites.

We did mention that playing an exclusive freeroll was a huge advantage over the freerolls that normally have fields that could run in the thousands and when you look at the prize pools of these two special freerolls, it’s easy to see how the fields could become gigantic. But you’ll be playing against a much smaller field of qualifiers and that gives your tournament game skills a chance to shine through.
