      a local poker club is hosting a MTT geared to attracting new players. Buy-in is $4 with starting chips set at 3000. each player is allowed to purchase a re-buy and add-on at $2 each with 4000 chips (a total of 8000 chips) anytime until the end of the half time (around 6 to 8 level). Blinds are set to increase every 15 minutes. prizes are: $80 for 1st; $60 for 2nd; and $40 for third.

      my question is: will i have significant advantage if i use the re-buy and add-on option? if yes, when should i exactly use it?

      Hi .. can i just ask ... these prizes are fixed?

      The addition of re-buys and add-on doesn't change the prize pool?

      Which filthy beggar is pocketing that cash?

      I personally always take rebuy+addon tho i would be annoyed if it wasn't going to the prize pool...

      I'm presuming this tourney already has added value to attract new players?

      Not adding rebuys to the price pool uttery sucks!

      PS is currently running Nordic "freerolls" with rebuys. PS is "donating" the pretty solid prize pool of $4000. The thing is, rebuys ($1) are not added to the price pool. So these donks keep rebuying and rebuying... (did it myself once, but i thought at a time it was going to the price pool). So at the end of the tourney there was like 3000+ rebuys. Nice "freeroll" indeed.

      so far i have not seen the prizes change. and there are usually around 30 players playing on 3 tables. i did win 2nd place in the tourney once without using re-buy and add-on. but if you will tell me that using rebuy and addon will significantly increase my chances, then maybe i will.

      rebuy and addon

      12$ your there to win and for the fun of the game so give your self the best opportunity to do so!

      I would also avoid tourneys that the prizes don't increase after rebuys/addon. unless 1st gets a bi into a bigger event etc, which i have seen.
