All good points. Every time I play in an R&A, I make the comment " I hate Rebuy touneys!" multiple times. But, if you can play premium hands and make it through the first hour, you're ok. I have made it through these tourneys before without any rebuys, just by playing premium hands, and slow-playing a lot. What I mean is, I will limp in more often than not, even with top cards, just to make sure the suck-out doesn't happen. If you play the player right, he will still think he has the nuts, that you've been on a draw, and you can get him all in and wipe him out. VERY gratifying!! What you'll notice is that people are very loose early (first 20 minutes), tighten up a bit for 30 minutes, then it seems that everyone is trying to "make a move" before the rebuys end, and play VERY loose for the last 10 minutes of rebuy period. Take advantage of these swings, and you'll do ok in the R&As.
