re: Poker & Double rebuy

But if I lose my buy ins before the first break, I don't rebuy again. I just quit, but if I do make it, I add on and then start heading for the FT. Really think about the rebuys, because you can make to many and that makes it even harder to get your money back and maybe a few $ too. GL to you
So basically starting with a double stack and not doing any rebuys anymore, and after that getting the add on.
I thought about that too yesterday while playing a tournament like that. I didn't do it though and quite fast I was able to triple up. So then I was glad I didn't do it. However, I was then thinking that if I had done it, I would have even more chips and a better chance on a deep run.
Another option I thought about, is waiting till the end of the late registration, starting with the double stack by doing the immediate rebuy and then 1 min later adding on. Like that you still have a decent stack and you avoid early busts.
