Heya CodeRed ..... I've been meaning to watch these for a long time, and I'm finally getting around to starting.
Question on part 1. You comment on how, in general, you are willing to gamble it up at 50/100 if you haven't yet doubled up, so that you won't have to start with the minimum 5k stack. If this happens, and you just can't catch a break, is there a monetary point where you just resign yourself to the 5k stack? For example, if you just catch no luck, and shove 3-4 times at 50/100 and lose every time, double rebuying each time .. do reach the point where you just say "OK, we'll keep the buyins at where they are and just play the 5k stack"?
I don't play a whole lot of rebuys but in terms of bankroll I kind of budget for 5x --- rebuy to start, one double rebuy, and the addon. Sometimes I get away with 3x, sometimes I end up 7x having twice done the double rebuy in the first hour. I don't know if I've ever spent more than that. I certainly never quit during the first hour, but I think if I reach that 7x I'm more inclined to just try to protect my 3k until the end of the hour, grab the addon, and try to make things work from there.
I guess it comes down to how to put a value on the utility of the 8k stack vs the 5k stack going into the 2nd hour. You do address this a little in the video but I was wondering if you could give us some more thoughts.
Looking forward to the rest of the series.
