When playing online rebuy tournaments and you bust, do you make a single rebuy or go for the double, and why? Is their any strategy or specific reasoning behind this?
Double, I play tourneys that are within proper bank roll guidelines & double rebuy for the same reason most good cash players keep their stacks topped off. Want to be in position to maximize opportunities to double up & to allow myself to bully opponents with stack size.
I don't seem to have accomplished much with my life so far-----------, but I'm sure making good time.
It depends on the chips @ the table. If I bust early ( sure I play a little bit looser if I plan to rebuy) and stacks haven't grown that much, and with a double rebuy I'm chipleader, I make it double to be able to put pressure on the other players. If there are big stacks already, I prefer to have 2 shots and try to double up. Sure the level of the blinds play a role as well....(10 or 20)
As others have said, it really depends at what stage in the tournament I'm at and how expensive it was to get into the tournament, relative to my overall bankroll. I'd say typically go for the double rebuy. If you're skeptical about double rebuying due to high costs, you probably shouldn't be playing in that tournament anyways then.
