to re-buy hurts my pride. so do add-ons. it seems not fair. i'm not chippin out of my bankroll for a mulligan. if its a freeroll...why buy? use the skills you have over the idiots that re-buy over and over again. they're your bank of america of chips. of course you're gonna get donked out from time to time in any re-buy. i think the only time i've done a re-buy or an add-on was when playersonly
gave me 20 gold chips they said expire in 5 days, so i used that as an excuse to donk-shove, re-buy, and add-on.
maybe its just me. i feel more accomplished if i'm ITM without an addon or re-buy. one way i try to think about it is...later on in a tourney, that rebuy or that add-on is only gonna be 1 blind, or half a blind at that. yeah when the blinds are 150-200 or whatever when the add-on period starts, it makes a difference but...if you really need it...maybe its not your night.
