I played in a freeroll yesterday at ACR and I was really upset by the rebuys allowed in the game. The rebuys were unlimited and the were 20 cents each. There was a player who was going all in hand after hand and when she would lose her stack she would rebuy again. I decided to sit out and weather the storm I kept thinking maybe she would be moved to another table; But no such luck. She built up a stack of 21,000 chips before they moved me to another table. I don't think this is fair to the other players especially the ones who don't have a balance in their account. I don't mind playing in a game that has rebuys but they should be limited. What is your opinion? Has it ever happened to you? Do you have any suggestions on how to counter this practice?

I don't really see what the big deal is here. If they're going all in all the time, they are contributing to the prize pool and donating chips. Yes, eventually they will get lucky and make a stack, but so can you.

It is normal freebuy in my opinion, not to be mixed up with freeroll. Of course everyone or many do use the rebuy option. We should not worry about this.
If we can't afford, we should just try to freeroll and not rebuy, but other
should be able like they want to do... They build the complete prize pool for the pay-outs...

There are people who like this tournament format. If you are not one of them, why not play those tournaments that suit you personally?

ACR has bots, i would stay away from there. But it could be worse, you could be in Canada thinking you were doing it right the whole time, only to find out you were being screwed.

ya i don't like it either but like another poster said, they're building the prize pool i mean a rational person wouldn't rebuy a freebuy when unless they ft it, they're losing money if they just min cash. i've seen this at casinos ppl going all in every hand and firing bullets like crazy
