comment Easy to remember push/fold/callpush table/formula
@hmmmm: being predictable is always a bad thing, unless your play approximates GTO. If I can put you on a specific shoving range and you do so too often (or not often enough), I could adjust my calling range to exploit your shortcomings.

comment Easy to remember push/fold/callpush table/formula
@RaduMurzea: if that were true, then using most strategies would make you predictable - a formula is simply a strategy written down with mathematical jargon. Yes, any non-GTO strategy is exploitable by definition, but putting someone on a specific strategy can be made an extremely difficult if not impossible task. You can polarize your range, range-merge or use weighted randomization of actions (e.g. three-betting the same way with AA and air)

comment Add-on value and “bubble factor”
I must have not made my point clear enough - I'm not expecting a bubble factor, but rather "tighten up extremely because your stack is more expensive to rebuy than the value compared to the addon" factor...

comment Profitability of re-buys/add-ons when allowed
@Chris: Doesn't matter if re-buys are done at a flat rate (i.e. we're not considering the add-on phase here where a higher chip per dollar ratio could be offered) since a re-buy also contributes to the prize pool at a flat rate. Let's say you and I are playing against Phil Hellmuth in a re-buy tourney, and he just lost his stack. You and I both now each have 10K stacks => EV $100 if the main prize is $200. Now, if Phil re-buys and gets 1K chips for $10 that money goes into the prize pool. Both our EV is still $100 each! ICM calculation could become less linear with more than just 1st paying.

Interesting point - assuming the two big stacks follow optimal strategy and don't enter direct confrontation, survival odds of the short stack are slim. At the same time I believe the structure allowing rebuys on the bubble to be completely unreasonable, especially for a flat payout structure.

@Macro: afaik this is a pretty common way of calculating your tournament equity - and yes, I'm almost certain the assumption is inaccurate (most notably, fear/fold equity is ignored) but I have no better alternative or a way to prove it.
