Rebuy Tourneys Suck
I played a few rebuy tourneys, $8+R and $3+R on Pokerstars
yesterday and I gotta say they will probably be the last I play. People going all in with low suited connectors and generally chasing any sort of flush possibility is pretty much a given within the first hour of play whereby they can simply rebuy in after losing their chips.
I've never played rebuys before because I don't like the idea of them, and I know that for every rebuy there is more added to the prize pool, but slim chance of getting past the first hour if you play tight-aggressive and aren't re-buying or adding-on during the first break.
I lost a few hands to runner-runner draws, be it straight or flush and was short-stacked so went all in when the time came, with AA. I scooped the pot but was beaten for my entire stack not much later with top 2 pair by a flush draw that he caught on the river, he had 2-3 suited ffs. Fair enough if you want to play like that and end up putting damn near $300 then so be it but the fact it was $3+R and I was only using one re-buy made it extremely frustrating.
I doubt I'll ever play a rebuy again or if I do it'll probably be a higher buy-in. I must say the $8+R wasn't so much like this but the $3+R was terrible.
Just want to hear your opinion on Re-Buy Tourneys...
