I'm trying to use the free tables on PokerStars for a few reasons
- To get familiar with position, hand values etc
- To get comfortable managing bankroll (It seems easier to make a mistake when there's no money involved)
- To get comfortable with making the right move and still having a terrible play beat you. (I've seen the state Phil Helmuth gets in)
So assuming there is value in playing for free before you put the dosh in, what are the benefits, and What should I focus on while free playing?
