Is there a good Rebuy stratagy?
Yes, you should play much looser in a rebuy during the rebuy period. You need at least 3-5x the starting stack at the end of the rebuy period. So you should take risks to obtain it.
However, you shouldn't be going nuts. You don't want to rebuy like 8 times to get this stack that you need. You just shouldn't be afraid to gamble.
Most players over-do it during the rebuy period, and end up re-buying like 10 times. At that rate, you'd have to make the final table just to get your money back.
