Here's a twist;
I just did a late registration thing, got there 3 minutes before the break, Bought in, found myself in a hand went all in, meanwhile I'm doing a rebuy, I win the hand and it's break time, where I add on.
I find myself then in 85th place out of 230 or so at the break. Total cost ,85 cents. (.25+.10 + rebuy +add on).
After the break the cards get crazy and I get to top spot and stay for 30 minutes or so. Finished 11th, made 3x investment.
Moral of the story is that if you aren't ready to rebuy and add on, don't bother with these type of tourneys. The play before the break is so wacko, you will either get caught up in the wackoness, or get totally discouraged.
