      You don't have position so it's just a waist of money I think. There are a lot of hands that will call you on NL2 and you won't know where are you at.

      I don't like that you are sitting with 44 BB.

      All good points. Rebuy preflop to maximize your edge against bad players, and consider your underpair mostly dead in such a spot. Even if you're ahead there is no way the 4 villains will all fold at nl2, and then you're forced to check/guess the turn with a marginal hand.


      Hope it helps.
