wanted to know what everyones stance was on low limit re buy tourneys in casinos in UK. currently play one most sunday nights. £2 1000 chips unlimited re buys for 75 mins. my usual strategy is either register and then play 20 mins. if im up to above 10k then i usually go and have a drink and watch tv. however most weeks i am continually shouting "CHIPS" every 5 mins. for example last week after 4 or 5 re buys pick up aces. one guy goes all in a call and only one more calls. so i win pot but still only have 3k which is basicaly 1k in this game. next hand JJ late position one guy already all in for 1k i sh al in as well one caller. says i have only seen the ace and lo and behold ace on the flop. seriously annoyin these things does any oneelse play them???

Our local casino plays a lot of them, just because they're so tremendously profitable for the house.

Played a $25 w. rebuys there once, and decided that I'll just stick with freezeouts for the time being. A $2 rebuy tournament I'd definitely have a bash at though. What's the prize money like?

Cheap re-buys live, tend to take to long for crap rewards. Cheap re-buys might work out better online. I personally never play re-buys, live or online.

...which is exactly why casinos love them.

The $25 tournament I mentioned above gets run every Saturday morning at our local casino. It normally draws about 100 people, and a good many of them will spend upwards of $100 on the tournament. If they just held a $100 freezeout though, they probably won't have as many takers.
