Yep, what she said. A player that re-buys 10 times is equivalent to 10 players in a freezeout. Who would you rather be up against after the initial re-buy period is over? If you hit a hand early, you'll be on a table with 4-5000 chips, and will love it when billy no-clue re-buys for the 10th time and gets 1,000 chips. Also in the last hands before the first break, shortstacked players are LITERALLY giving chips away - they want to lose their 300 chips, so they can re-buy with 1,000 (and add-on to 2,000!).
