Our only choice then is the micro games and freerolls of any kind. The options get pretty limited. There are 2 categories (imo) to the -0- starting crowd.
1. Those who win less than a $1 and run right off as soon as they can to a micro ring table to donk it all away in their one 'all-in' stab to 'strike it rich'. (then it's back to FR's).
2. Those (few) who can bank their winnings until they have the funds for putting BR management into play.
Build a small BR as Ferguson did in his Challenge to $10k. What? 9 months to get 'stable' at $6.50? And that was a PRO working on it. After you have a small BR, apply his strategy. It does work for those who want to build something from nothing, but it isn't from dimer MTT's with rebuys and addons.
As a matter of perspective, if you had put up .10c to make .19c, you've almost doubled your investment. OTOH, .19c from a $1.60 investment is <1.2% return and an unreasonable investment for that ROI, and the risk of the $1.60 buy-in cost if you did not make it ITM, which happens often in these donkfests.
A player who deposits $500 and invests $20 in an MTT to win $40 still gets the same 2x ROI, but they often scoff at the dimer player and the .19c win. It's the same 'double up' and no different than the depositor who can put up $5,000 in their account and wonder how someone could play for just a $40 win ... ... you could say it's in the 'eye of the be-holder' - in this case, it's in the 'eye of BR-holder'.

The FT dimer re-buys are sucker games, imo. 10c buy-in and 50c rebuys/addon? It's like the computer peripheral industry that charges $30 for a printer and $35 for an ink cartridge.
