How do you play unlimited rebuy tournies?
It's crazy. Unlimited rebuys until the 8th round, so people bet anything, lose, and reload. It's actually worse than freerolls
! This is only the second time I played the Wild West tourney at Costa del Poker, where it's 0.50 Euros to buy in 500 chips, but unlimited rebuys.
55 players, 548 rebuys! I think the only ones that didn't rebuy were me and a disconnected player at my table.
Is it really worth it to rebuy? One guy at my table rebought 3 times in the space of maybe 1 1/2 orbits. Another guy busted, rebought immediately for 5,000 (10 Euros) chips which was the average at the time. Another guy (who lasted until the final table and ended up in the money) topped up during the last rebuy break from 2,000 to 10,000.
I just played my original 0.50 buyin, played mostly tight. I hit the break a little below average, and won. 108 Euros. Good ROI on that one.
I think because everyone plays like maniacs until the rebuy period is over, they don't stop so if you make it to the rebuy end you can outlast them playing tight and then stealing blinds.
