Ever since joining the PSO a few weeks ago I've been playing the freeroll tournaments like a madman (by that I mean about 3-5 per day). Thankfully I joined at the end of the month because the first few did not go so well. I was just always among the first couple hundred of players to be knocked out and my ranking quickly plummeted down into the 1450's. OUCH!
Like anything else, though, I just have to keep with the grind. Starting the SNG course has been beneficial to my game and so has all the practice that I've had in the tournaments. With each tournament I do just a little bit better, make less poor plays and more good ones, and I progress a bit farther into the tournament. I still have yet to finish in the top third of players (let alone in the money), but practice makes perfect and I'm having a lot of fun.
