Are reentry events a good thing or a bad thing? This seems to be the hot topic of the week considering the lack of real poker news this time of year. I've never been a big fan of the reentry concept since they started becoming popular a few years back. I'm more of the purist mindset that a poker tournament, unless it is a rebuy event, should be one entry and you're done. As these events have evolved, my opinion has changed slightly and while I still prefer true freezeouts, reentry events have a place but they should be limited.
