"throws me off my game"

Other then making sure I get my money in well, is there any other tips anyone has for rebuy strategies?
maybe you need to consider altering 'your game' when playing in them??
I love alot of the comments in this thread... sounds like they come from freezeout players expecting other's to conform to their style of play in a rebuy.
Rebuys are really a deepstack tourney that starts once the rebuy period is over. They actually favour the more skilled player (instead of the opposite as so many on here are assuming or insinuating) because of the oppurtunity to play deepstacked poker.
My tip/suggestion.... enter with intentions of spending ~ 5x the buyin amount, learn how to build a stack during the rebuy period and read up on playing deepstacked poker. These can actually be great tournaments to play in as there's more oppurtunity to play poker than so many of the typical tournaments you'll find online (ie. the 1500 starting stack ones).
