I must agree with Barry about not liking rebuy tournaments. The players with the deeper pockets have a distinct advantage and tournament poker is all about starting with the same and seeing the best man win

My favourite poker player of all time, a winning player at cash and tournaments, different variations of poker, and across multiple generations of players. The Robin Hood of poker has also been good for its image.

Yeah i love Barry as a player too love his post, i remember his post about his gold skills and where he gave it up because he has no love for it anymore so he stick with poker for that long and guess he loves the game too much. So good luck to him in any tournament he is in. Also I would like to say that re entry tournament sucks if it is online as too much donkey. Live is another matter!
Great article, but why does the interview have to be written white? My eyes hurt...
To the topic: Rebuy tournaments should be played (with corresponding bankrollmanagement) as standart freezeout tournaments, but with 4 times as big buy in. (for 3$ +rebuy tournament you need bankrollmanagement as for 12$ tournaments). Because when you play them, you should always take the rebuy right away (to have double stack) and then always take the addon. (+sometimes if you bust, you can double rebuy). By playing a rebuy tournament like that, you maximize your profits!
