What do you guys think is the best option at a cash table? Should you tick that little box that says "Auto Re-Buy To Maximum" or should you not? My vote falls on no, I like to keep track of my winnings/losses at a table and that function makes it more difficult when multi tabling.

So what do you say? Yes or no? Please motivate!

Personally i never buy in for max, but i do sometimes use auto-rebuy when I min buy in.

I like to maximise my double up if i get a good hand Smile.

I normally buy-in for about 3/4 of the max and i never ever EVER check the box any more.

Did it once when multi-tabling and before i had even realised i threw a big chunk of my br down the drain when i went on a bad run of hands. Angry

Lesson well and truly learnt. I just add funds if i start running a little low and find i keep track better that way as it takes a conscious effort to add-on.

Always buyin for the max and always autorebuy imho.

I want always to have my maximum stack available when playing a hand:

1) when I hit I ant to be paid the max

2) max stack allow you to properly bet (3bet-4bet-5bet) preflop flop, turn, river .... when in doubt bet...if it's a big doubt ...then bet more

3) personally I think it's not good for your gamestyle to costantly have an eye on your profit/losses.
We shouldn't do it neither during eventually session review (you could have played correctly a loosing hand and collecedt a pot with a bad move).

Always buy in max and always auto-rebuy. If you don't you basically paint a big sign on you that says "massive retard fish".

Seriously. Always.


If you can't afford too or you like to keep track of your session winnings/losses then you're probably playing too high stakes for your bankroll.

Silly not to auto-rebuy, besides looking like a total fish if you don't, what happens if you get stacked down to 3bb or something and next hand you're dealt AA, perfect time to look like you're tilting and get callers - and instead you're stuck with only 3bb.

No reason to play rebuy tournaments unless you are willing to rebuy.
The purpose is to get a good stack at the start of the game so that yit allows you to progress as much as possible into the money Smile

I wouldn't set any kind of auto-rebuy until the very last possible few seconds because you just might win a HUGE pot, then when the hand finishes,....BING,...you get a bunch of un-needed chips!

I've used it before, but only very sparingly. I figure anything spent on rebuys is a loss,...UNLESS you can recoup that cost. You could continue to lose,...and that just compounds your loss...... Smile

Your poll needed a 'Sometimes,...Please Explain' option.... Smile

I prefer no too because i can see how much i win or lose, but if you really wanna play for win a lot of cash you can tick that box with auto rebuy to max because if you lose 70% from buy-in and next hand you get AA you can win double buy in... if you play with the rest of 30% you just can get back maximum 55% of buy-in initial...

I usually rebuy when i'm down half the buy in size, so if i'm playing 2NL, i'll rebuy when my stack size hits $1. However is it worth rebuying if you're down even 2cents? I thought this made more sense but maybe there's a reason why you keep rebuying to stay at the buy in amount and i'm not clearly seeing it!!!

I personnally think (and i did read about it somewhere too, so not just imo) you should buy in either minimum and play shortstack strategy (basically if you play, you get them all in either preflop or after flop, occasionally fold after flop, if you see it cheap).
Or you should buy in max and play good soolid poker, betsizes etc.
Worst thing you can do is buy in half or 75% of max. Not easy to ship it anymore, less money if you get monster and not enough money to make other fold after cbet called in the flop and turn.
so for me its min (no time, tilt, feel like gamble)
or max (enough time, food mood, relaxed)

I'd like to hope so, since the title is "Auto Re-Buy in Cashgames, Yes or No?"

It really depends on the opponents, for me.

If there are one or more loose passive players, at the table, then I want my stack to be at least as high as theirs.

Also if there are big stacks to my right, I rebuy to max.
If the big stacks are to my left, I'm less eager to rebuy.

If my stack drops below 20BB, I either go to another table or rebuy, usually.

IMO the answer is a most definite YES. If your answer is NO try playing lower stakes and working on your overall strategy, playing scared is not a good way to be playing at cash tables.

Very true - I didn't really want to talk about buying in MIN, because - I'm not a fan of it and like a lot of other deep-stack players, I think it is bad for the game allowing people to buyin for 20bb and distorting the way the hands are played.

But you're correct - it IS definitely a viable strategy.

--and who says you can win more,you can loose more too.

But if you are a winning player you are going to win more by keeping your stack to the maximum Smile
