Entering in the begining is always the best, in my opinion. You will not have any disadvantage to any opponent and then anything can happen. But i'm the type of player who also don't like to go on rebuys. These two are related because those who go for rebuys don't have any problem on registering later on a tourney and start losse aggressive whyle rebuy is possible. This way, they can reach faster a competitive amount of chips (over the mid line) and, if things go wrong with the first rebuy, they can always give it a second or a third chance.

Yeah, the late reg on PKR is a bit weird on some games, where you register so far into it you have single-figure blinds haha.

But I'm all for it, I love the option to be able to join games that have already started (means if I'm going for a MTT session, I can get 3-4 tables going straight away, which is great).

And I love other people late registering as well; especially if they late reg in really late and it's basically just dead money. Bloating prizepools is always good!

At Unibet most of the tournaments have late registration and re-buy +add-on.For me is frustating that I took all the chips of a guy and he re-buy and than take my chips.I think this strategy of sites is making a lot of money,players loosen up the game and put lot more money in the tournament Dollar

I don't think the site gets any more money from rebuys or add-ons, since no fee is taken. The fee is only for the buyin, so in effect the sites earns less than usual.

If you're concerned about paying too much fees/rake, rebuy tournaments offer the best value for money, I think...

to be fair most sites dont make any money on rebuys it all goes in the prize pool

It depends on ur perspective. To be late for a tournament for like 15 or 20 minutes and still being able to enter a tourney i think its ok But 2 hours it too much, specially if its a deep stack with 10 minutes blind levels. U can enter it late and still have a fighting chance ok... but the guy that got there in time has to wait all that time for the field to finally start decreasing. lets say its another 2 hours till u get itm. U can spend several hours fighting in a tournament for a small or no return.
Honestly if i am big stack, chip lead like, can't wait for the registration to close... any more competition just decreases my chances.

PartyPoker generally has late registration until the end of blinds level 3 or 6. This makes the actual time to vary since blinds levels go up differently for every tourney. So basically, it could be all from 9 minutes (3 min blinds with late reg until level 3) up to 1h30m (15 min blinds with late reg until level 6).

------------
But on topic, having 2 hours of late registration I think is a tiny bit extreme. I think it's unfair to those who actually joined there in time.

I sometimesd make a late registration but I always look at the details first , this means :

how many players are registered, still in torney and the buy-in
what s the average stack compared to the stack I start with when I buy-in

When my stack will be less than 75% from the average , I do not start

The advantage of a late registration is that a lot of gamblers will be out already (especially with ,ower buy-ins)

I avoid rebuy torneys

I belive that the benefits start to play 30 minutes after the tournament begin.It is because of the late registration.Especially if the tournament has rebuys,a lot of players like to pushes any two,until there steks will be big and blindes will rise up.So i began to play after 30 minutes.

Right, don't make increase of participant disturb your play ( happen to me at first ) just play well. If we just think catch the prize that 's ( late reg ) will be not nice and our play will be bad. Just play well, that's it Smile Smile

i love to enter at the last 5 minutes or even at the last minute possible to registrate in rebuy+add onn tournaments...

why??

let other fill up the pricepool,,and do the rebuying...i enter at the end and hope to double triple up..then a few minutes later registration closes and people start to get kicked out of the tournament...mostly in that stage i manage to get an average stack or bust out as well,,then i buy 1 add-onn and i'm competing in a pretty small field with huge prizepool...

i think this is the best way...pay less ,win more..

My biggest issue with long periods of rebuys is that it is hard to predict when the tourney will finish, especially if you tend to sign up at the start of a tourney like I do. When you sign up and there are 200 players, and by the time registration has closed there are 450, you better have the extra hours available and not have your wife getting angrier and angrier because you promised her an outing, and there are still 80 players left and they are all running down the clock! Big Smile

Indead that s one of the problems of rebuy turneys.
That s also the reason that I try to avoid those kind of torneys as they last to long for me.

And I have also to avoid that my wife gets angry .... so if you have any tips .....

Personally, I don't mind late reg. turneys, since it means I get to register for a few straight away, and in some the gamblers are out already. Though, I am the type that prefers playing from the start. Although, anything above 15-20 mins is too much IMHO. As for rebuys, I hate those, since I like a bit of ... well, serious playing, not just an effing bingo game Smile

As to the wife, quit playing poker, devote all your time to her and worship her like a goddess. Tongue

stop spamming with copy of the others comments...

In my opinion, its better to start, when tournament starts. Why?
1. because you are on same level with every player, so you dont have disadvantage to anyone who built bigger stack already
2. blinds are bigger if you start later, but your starting stack is still same... If you start really late, you can be short stack from beginning. Is it good? Smile
3. If you start from beginning you can play more hands = bigger chance to get to some good hands and build your stack.
