I was asking about small MTTs. Like 4 or 5 tables.
Because of the small playerpool I can keep track of a lot of the players, and I notice that most of the final table peeps were 1.) playing badly, 2.) bought about 8-10 full add-ons at break, 3.) continued to play badly slowly bleeding chips til they final tabled.
Usually at break, there's about 20 players left and most of them are adding on like maniacs.
I couldn't imagine rebuying 2 or 3 times AND buying 8 add-ons at break and not finishing in the money. I'd feel like a chump.
I never rebuy or add-on in these. I took down a $500 first place finish with just one $30 entry once, but it seems hard to beat the maniacs who increase their stack x10 buy adding on at break.
