I'm playing in a slot tournament later this month, and I noticed the tournament is offering re-buys in each round for $40. If you don't like the score you earned in a given round, you can pay $40 for the chance to earn a higher score in the round. The slot tournament entry was complimentary for me, and I imagine entry is complimentary for everyone else who will participate. So why would anyone pay $40 to re-buy? By avoiding the re-buy, you are at risk of losing nothing. If you re-buy, you're now at risk of losing $40. I guess I could understand if you knew at the end of your final round how many points you were from cashing in the tournament, but otherwise it seems like a re-buy isn't very smart. Am I missing something? Thanks.
