    figure the value of a Freeroll

    All cash freerolls have a value to you. If the Freeroll offers $100 and there are 100 players includeing yourself the value to you is 1/100th or $1. If the same $100 Freeroll has 1,000 players includeing yourself the value to you is then1/1,000th or 10 cents.

    If it was a cash tournament and 100 players put 1 dollar in the pot would be $100. The value that u have invested would be 1 dollar. likewise if the casino offered $100 to 100 players; the value to each would be $1.

    Yeah, great way to explain it, the examples above show what you would have had to put out of your own pocket had the freeroll not been offered and it was a normal prize pool. So, conversely, you can see what little value is offered when it is $50 and 2000 people are entered (2 1/2 cents).

    This is simple math, however there are many additional factors when it comes to a PO freeroll. First off, it's technically not a freeroll because you have to have points to enter. How any one player chooses to get those points includes time and sometimes money. People who say a PO "freeroll" is only a freeroll are way off base. There was a cost involved in them getting into the tournament, whether it be time or money or both. If your time has zero value, then you have a problem. If you paid anything to earn the points or flat out purchased the points then it's no longer a freeroll at all. Add to that the time it takes to actually play the "freeroll" and that is an additional cost, even if you consider your time to be of no value. People who play poorly, or stupid, or donkey play, and then say it's "only a freeroll" are very, very stupid. You have to have a very low self value to actually believe that.
