I always enjoyed going to a tournament knowing that if I didn't advance from my first session of Round I, that I always had the re-buys to fall back on. Now days I've been hearing war stories about events that don't offer re-buys or only limited (first come, first serve) or worst (their VIP's getting first chance at the re-buys). I've also been hearing about several second chance/re-buys where if you don't advance from round I you simply pay an additional entry an you automaticly advance. I never was that crazy about the second chance option, after thinking more about it I think it is the way to go, with once exception. Instead of charging and addtional entry why not charge a fee inbetween the entry and rebuy so it would be more affordable and inviting for all the players to take advantage of? The down side would be adding an additional round. The up side is more prize money, elimanate the re-buy rounds (save atleast 2-3 hours), every player would know before hand they would get to play in mimimum of two round (as long as they were willing to pay the second chance fee). I think with an entry fee of $250 the normal re-buy would be $125 and the normal second chance fee would be $250 (same as the entry). Why not compromize and make the second chance $175? This works in so many ways for both the casinos amd players. So what's you take on this concept? Would you rather pay and play at $125 for the chance to advance or simply pay an addtional $50 ($175) for the second chance and be assurd of advancing to round II?
