looks like you pay for 10K chips but get them in discrete stacks. As such, when you push all in whilst playing the first stack, your other stacks are not part of the transaction, unless you already brought them into play. But it differs from a rebuy, because you do not have to go broke to get the other stack. You can add it when you want. Forcing its addition at a certain point is sort of like having the add-on...but where some people took their add-on early.

Sounds like it could be an all in fest in the early stages.
So you can a start the tourney with all 3 stacks in play at once this seems the optimal play.
What do you think?

It sounds smart, but how does it works///are there some buttons of launching stacks or what?
anyway, should we call allins with top 10% hands or 8%?

May be it's better to launch 2 stacks and leave one for addon
