Is it advisable to buy and
Very interesting question , I will fire some of those in the near future. They are very juicy prize wise! I have the same question , what about addressing this one to the SnG specialists in this thread?
I am pretty sure, its nearly always +EV to purchase the add on chips, since these are cheaper than other chips. So if you dont purchase the add on, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage against other players, who do.
Typically these events also allow you to dubble rebuy, if you bust, or top up one buyin, if your stacks is below the starting stack. This is more situational, but if there are bad players at the table with a big stack, I will typically chip up to give myself the best possible chance to be the one, who get their stack. If on the other hand there are only solid players, then I might just quit, if I get felted.

I find myself agreeing with Fundiver once again here
In the $3.50s 180 I double buyin and making it to the add on period is so advantageous. Things do get more complicated in other rebuy/addonsówhen thereís a massive add on coming soon and the blinds are quite high, it can be more +EV to single rebuy (again and again if necessary) to make it to the add on period where the same $ gets you dramatically more chips. Usually this type of format tends to occur in a satellite for a high stakes MTT.
