25/25 at Walsall

I've just had an email off Grosvenor advertising this. It made a big thing of you being allowed 2 reentries per flight, and three flights. Are they freaking crazy or are there players out there who will throw £1800 at a comp like this???? Need to finish 4th or better to make a profit!! What's the point of allowing so many reentries????

I take your point, and what`s worse is when the Company`s own sponsored pros fire innumerable (free ? discounted ?) bullets at a comp, thereby gaining an unfair advantage over the actual customers who ultimately pay their wages. 

That seemed to be happening at last year`s Goliath.  Ellie Biessek (a charming lady by the way, and no offence meant to her personally) seemed to be repeatedly busted and immediately re-appeared.  A bit like trying to put the cat out.

Obviously not run into the likes of Ali malou and Others who throw 100s at these comps . I play them on a regular basis and many players will spend £600 + per comp.They are all hunting for chips and the top prize..

If a player is having two bullets at 25/25 all season.

He fires and misses. Is it + or - EV to fire again at the same tourney or to have a single bullet at the next?

My thoughts, Mike - if the tournament is a one-off and I won`t have a chance to play another day, I might well re-enter.  But, with a recurring comp  like the 25/25, that`s on somewhere within a reasonable distance every few weeks, I think it makes better sense to save your money and start again another day.  That way, you can begin completely fresh in yourself and with a chip stack that`s equal to everyone else in the room.

I tend to play the Saturday at 4pm leg if i have travelled and stopping the night. If it is local i  play Friday with a 1 bullet and if not successful play Sat with another.Although not playing Walsall as day 2 is on the last Day of the Premier league and i will be atthe Brit

I agree 1 re-entry per flight is enough. Anyone can get UL and need to re-enter once but if you enter/bust, re-enter and bust again then its clearly not your night and sometimes people need saving from themselves. 

IMO it encourages bad play/bad calls because as soon as anyone gets below chip average they immediately start thinking "I may as well bust and re-enter" instead of thinking "I still have X number of bb's I can play my way out of this".
