Beating £10 Casino Rebuys - advice needed!
I play poker quite a lot and tend to think I'm at least an OK player winning, and coming in the money, in many online multi tables!
I tend to be able to survive till late in all freezeouts (unless picking up those nasty bad beats). This is as I can play against the table and know once someone is out, they're out.
I went to a Casino to play in a rebuy tournament. The first one I've played in. I usually stick to freezeouts and once again, do well, but unfortunately I'm a student and the minimum freezeouts at most casino's are over £150!!!!!
So I thought I'd play this £10 pot limit unlimited rebuys for 90 mins! Big mistake! 2 levels in 90 mins, peopel going all in every hand and rebuying! It was just mental. I know its only £10 but some people were putting in over 10 rebuys!
Obviously these people are a dream in poker, as you sit tight, then get your cards and bang, the maniac going all in and rebuying has just doubled you up, but when you have more than 3 people at a table of 10 doing it, really doesn't help!
So i need advice on the best strategy. In freezeouts, if the tables tight-conservative/passive, play aggressive, but in a rebuy (though the example would still be the same), when you have a very aggressive and loose table, even when you get your cards and go all in, your up against 3 opponents taking your odds
with the best hand pre flop to lower than 50%....
in a £10 rebuy with, lets say 80 people, 90 mins rebuy and topup's allowed (unlimited), how many re-buy's should I go prepared with, and what is the best way of playing? Getting many chips early and sitting back, or trying to grind till after the bubble? An hour and a half is a LONG time to grind, but the odds aren't in your favour in any pot pre flop!!!
