What is Freerolls?
Freerolls, is online poker for free with a chance of winning real money. I have never understood people who want to use their time on playing poker for play money, when you have the possibility to play free for real money. I play alot of poker online, mostly with real money, however some days when I don't have the money or I want to practise some new tournament strategies, and really eager to play poker I hook up with some poker freerolls.
Where to play freerolls?
Online poker is HUGE! and the possibilities to find freerolls online are endless. Sometimes it can be quite confusing, because there is so many to choose from.
So what to choose and where to find it? normally I go for private freeroll tournaments. Because they are less saturated, you increase your chance of winning money. Normally these private freerolls require passwords, so you will need to locate the passwords somewhere online first.
When you play freerolls, you need to change your strategy, from how you would play with real money.
Because players don't put any money into it, they seem to play alot more loose and aggressive. So bluffing, should be out of the question, at least in the beginning of the tournament. However, because the tournaments are free and there is so many of them, you should start out doing the same. If you loose all of your tournament money, then just move on to the next freeroll tournament. When you're in luck, and double or triple your tournament money in a tournament, then you slow down and you need to start playing very defensive, ONLY play your very best hands.
How much can you win with a freeroll tournament?
In many freeroll tournaments, they seem to reward alot of players with low amounts of cash, I remember one time, where I managed to build up my cashier account to around £100 from 0, not bad ehh. I entered a password protected private freeroll and I think I ended up in top 200 somewhere, I won around £1. I then used that pound to enter another tournament, and won more and more. Well my point is, that if you enjoy playing poker, are low on cash, have patience and a little bit of luck, you can do exactly the same.

The problem with most freerolls is that in order to win one you may have to spend 4 to 6 hours playing for a frist prise of $10 or $20 in the good ones. Most of them spread the prize pool out over the top gazillion places!
I agree with the OP: I'd rather play a FR than play for play money.

Good to learn ways to think about the game and learn note taking and strategy changes over different blind levels etc, but in all but a few sites it is a long slog to cash as the payouts are small and the fields are huge- variance is killer. Also cash plays differently and so I think practicing with freerolls and then depositing a small bankroll and grinding according to 50 buyin rule is a good idea for long term development and profit. Freeroll qualifiers are certainly good as a you can qualify to huge tourneys with 0
