re: Poker & Strategy on 1$ + R Help?
This probably isn't a great strategy, but the way I like to play Rebuy/Add-on MTTs is to wait to register right before they go on break. Then when I register, I rebuy, and then take the add-on option. Lets say starting stack is 2K + 2K(rebuy) + 4K(add-on), so if it's a $1 Rebuy, I'm only paying $3 for an 8K starting stack.
Depending on the game type (reg or turbo), blinds are usually around 75/150-100/200, so you're sitting on about 40+ BBs. Not a great stack, but definitely usable. Just play a bit more aggressive in the mid-stages, open your raise/shove range, and steal a lot more. I noticed once the rebuy period ends, a lot of people nit up. So, if you see that, take advantage of it.
The biggest benefit I see is that I'm usually around an average stack for mid stages and I'm already passed a lot of the field and I just have to worry about getting through the later stages; which is a lot easier than early stages, IMO.
I've had the best results playing R/A MTTs this way.
