Don't think so?

I look at 10 tourneys down in Vegas and 9 of them offer rebuys. Don't like rebuys?

I'm curious to your feelings and reasoning behind not liking them, in fact, some people hating them!

So, rant on! Let's hear it!
You tell us why you don't like them and the others (such as me) will tell you why we like them.

Let's hear it!

I posted a pretty clear opinion on this in the other thread.

It doesn't surprise me that you like them - you're a bit more of an "action guy" then I am.

And there's nothing wrong with that.

Just preference.

I know, and I just wanted to hear some others feelings on them as well. This may surprise you though, there are some scenarios where I rather play a freeze out tourney. Shocker eh?

But, my basic feeling is that I like them because they build bigger pots.

Be honest - you like them because you can get busted on a huge bluff and still get back in the tourney.

Am I wrong?

Absolutly not.

One (of several) of the reasons I like them is:
It fattens the prize booty which in turn pays larger amounts for the people in the bubble. Those that played thier cards, the people and the chips correctly to get in the bubble.

You guys never catch me on my "huge bluffs"

The thing I don't like about the re buy tournament is that it has a little too much of the " Do Over" logic built into it. Someone beats me, Do Over, beats me again, Do over, I beat them, Gotcha! I shouldn't have been there to get um in the first place. I prefer lose/out. It adds an element of suspense to the tournament structure. Which is one of tha main reasons I like Tournaments.

As for the bigger pot, that's what attracted me to rebuy's in the first place, and actually in direct conflict to what I just stated above so did the "Do Over" element of it. However as I matured as a player I found that, at least for me, the rebuy rarely ever led to better play on my part and usually added to the "tilt factor". Again I'm speaking stictly for myself.

I do the same in a cash game. I have a preset amount that I'll play and that's it. I don't mind rebuy's at all in that arena because each player has the option to leave at any time giving back the freedom removed in a tournament.

Also as to the bigger pot, at a $30 to $40 buy in with 10 people, Your talking usually more than double payback for finishing in 3rd. Not a bad night if you ask me. Any time you can double your roll and walk away is a good night in my book. Sure I'd like to walk away with 4 to 5 times more than that but I'm just not ready to risk that kind of $$. I fully understand the logic about big bet = big win but I'm not comfortable with the big risk associated with it.

The only thing I dont like about rebuys is if you can do so to reenter a tournament. It sounds like there are several different rules on this depending on the tourney - for us busted out means busted out. At the Dealers Choice, I think busted out means you can reenter with a rebuy. Which rule is most prevelant?
