hi the reason behind this (iknow you haven't asked for one, but i will give it for free ) when you are on a roll and end up winning the tournament or ending up in the money- if it's a rebuy tournament- you win more money, that's it- this is the only reason i love rebuy tourneys

Definitely Forgive it.As others before me says in that tournaments players go all in too often and some of them if lose rebuy and immediately go all in and if lose they do it again and continue to rebuy until they win some all in.

Good Players who know how to make use of the rebuy period to build a monster stack and then completely dominate the rest of the game with said monster stack.
I like rebuy/addon tournaments. Sometimes you run really well early against donks/very agressive players who don't care about rebuying so you don't need the rebuys/addons. When that happens, even a min cash is going to be a nice cash in relation to the buy-in amount. But in general you have to be ready to pay atleast 3-5x the buy-in amount, so if you have a small BR, only play micro rebuy tournies, and don't be scare to be agressive.

If you wanna play rebuys properly you should have a bigger bankroll than for normal MTT's. You should always rebuy from the beginning and try to double/triple up from the beginning. That's why more people are going all in in the early stage of the tournament. Once you have build a big stack you can try to dominate the rest of the tight players? Unless you have a really monsterstack you should make an add-on.

What is the best strategy to play them ? At the moment I do it like this: I plan to play them with 3x the original buy in. I will rebuy right at the start and play tight and look for a good spot to double up. If I lose, I won´t rebuy again, but leave the tourney. If I stay in it, I will do the add on and try to get as deep as possible.

I play low rebuys, often sats for something. Trick is to make use of the fact that people will go all-in with garbage at the beginning. Usually don't rebuy but wait to double/triple up. and then play regular tourney until the add-on, which I buy. Depending on what I'm playing, I might rebuy once if I lose the first all-in. Usually never a second time. I like....

Can i say “Hi” if i love when others keep doing rebuys when i’m doing good in a tourney? It’s awesome to see the prizes growing a lot without having a bigger contribution from our part. And if we reach them (which doesn’t happen every time, unfortunately) it’s even better.

is say hi...i love em....and think there the best format to play....
oh yeah ,some players rebuy and go all in 3 times at a row,no mather what hand they hold,, just any 2...hoping to win all 3 hands and get a monsterstack...if they lose ,,,keep on rebuying till they got what they want...
guess what?? most of the time they manage to win 3 in a row...but cost em sometimes many,many rebuys...not my strategy...
i respect that strategy...cause they put in a lot of money for all players...but makes it hard for u to call with medium hands,,,you never know his range...can be anything...since they play any 2.
