This is a discussion on Optimal/Necessary conditions to take the addon option? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi Guys,
I know many don't take the addon options during tourneys, but those that do, I have a few questions:
- what factors come into play
Hi, when I play a tournament with re-buy and add-on it is because my bankroll allows me to re-buy and of course the add-on. What is the factor that I take into account is very simple how close my stack is to the average chip in the tournament. if I am above the average of chips I do not think about it and I do the add-on if I am very below I let it pass, that is the factor that I measure, my stack on the average in the tournament

Exactly this. You should ALWAYS addon. Also, you should never be in a position with only 2-3 BBs at the addon break. You should have pushed prior to the break to either double a few times, or just rebuy to a bigger stack.
Taking time to enjoy the little things.
