Are these tournaments even worth playing?

I'm talking live at my local casino. The buyins are 50 plus 5 for the extra chip. It's usually 44 max, 1 rebuy allowed for until the first break. Only annoying thing is the payouts... a large chunk is taken off for poker league. So, assuming you get an average of 40 players with 10 or more rebuys. the prize is always around 500-600 first place... you would have to cash in the top 3 an average of every 5 tournaments. This doesn't include the other profit eating habits around here. Everytime you're expected to pay the bubble with 5 people left. Dealers expect tips, and also transportation. I am beginning to wonder, since tournaments have such huge variance... are these tourneys even worth playing?

Play 1/2 or 2/5 instead and catch the tilted bust outs. Cashgames are very profitable during daily tournaments.

Doesn't sound like it's worth the time for the payout range

.. based on your description it doesn't sound like it's good value for your time and money , might be ok if that's the only game around and you don't mind the payouts
