It doesn't change early mtt play that much. What, do you have to fold a few more hands against the quick double up all-ins? Tell me, in a freezeout mtt, do you often find yourself with hands worth calling an all-in during the early levels? Likely not.I too am not a fan of rebuys. I think that it changes the early tournament play. Players knowing they can rebuy can take a lot of risk for doubling up and amassing a chip lead early in the tournament. This type of play forces me to make decisions for a significant amount (or all) of my stack when I may only be slightly ahead. If I bust I don't want to rebuy.
And nobody is forcing you to play hands where you're only slightly ahead of a bad players all-in range. You make the decision to play that hand, no matter what the reason. Maybe you want to be table sheriff and bust them out. Maybe it's FOMO seeing all these players go all-in and picking up big pots. Or whatever, you still choose your actions.
