This is a discussion on Tournaments with rebuys within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; :smile::icon_bigs:angel:
Anyone can help me? I need to learn tournaments with rebuys, where most pots have about 3 players MORE or less
I would say have enough for several rebuys and be prepared to go all the way with a good hand. Players will be moving all in more frequently in rebuy tourneys so pick your spots and hope to get lucky. If you can double up a few times you might be able to sit back and play more poker as people will respect your big stack.
Play loose if you are willing to rebuy and tight if you do not wish to rebuy.
I like this one, right on the money.
I was in one of my first re-buys tourneys and one guy is egging everyone on to go all in with him. He loses a few times and keeps rebuying, gets a lot of other players to do it also. Then he wins a few double ups in a row and sits out. lol
He played them bad, I scooped up more than a few chips myself.
I think you've got to budget for at least 3 rebuys and add on if they have it and play loose initially and hope to get some traction, win your flips. Once the rebuy period has closed you should be in good shape if you have managed to triple up or more.
I agree with some participants that the tournament with rebuys is not very good, because
Players constantly buy in chips and the tournament lasts a very long time, and they take off from the tournament slowly, and the rebuys last about an hour and players buy a lot of chips, it's very difficult to knock players out of the tournament. I do not like such tournaments with rebuys
Don't think too much about rebuys when playing these tournaments. I think that the point is to play them as usual ones - in general. If you're good enough to win normal (without rebuys) tournament, it won't influence you any.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

What I have read here on this post is mostly true. Here is my guideline for Re-buy tournaments.
If there is an add-on in the beginning of tournament, then take the add on.
Plan on re-buying at least 4 times.
If there is an add-on at the end of re-buying period, then take the add-on
People play loose till end of re-buy period, so play tight aggressive with strong hands only. Your hands don't have to be the nuts just strong as there are people that play loose that get busted out and don't re-enter and then there are the people that just "go all in", re-enter, "go all in", re-enter.....hoping to double up. If you play strong hands against these people you can easily double up as their holdings are usually any two cards. this means there is a lot of dead money by the end of the re-buy period!
Again, being prudent with the cards you play will make a world of difference as most of your opponents are getting their chips in with weak hands. Such as playing AQo+, A10s+, 77+, no connectors suited or not.
If a player is going all in and winning almost all the time don't play against that player unless you have a very strong hand. Such as AKo or suited, 88+
once re-buy period is over resume your normal play.
I think the rebuy tournaments are good because they raise the prize ... if we play good hands and take advantage of the spots I think the rebuy will not matter much !!! Just like everything you have to be lucky with our hands ... our flop .... luck to all
Know the pot odds, thats the answer. The more the players in a pot, the lesser the chances, even with aces. There is nothing to learn about this apart from fact that the probabilities are proportionate the participating players in a hand. Be aware of your lesser chances to win a hand pre-flop. That's all I can say without more specific questions from your side.
