As you probably know, a zombie is a person who has died and come back to life. The equivalent in poker is when a tournament structure allows someone who has been knocked out is able to rebuy (and under some circumstances several times). I know it’s great for the card room/casino and builds payouts, but I stay away from them. Why? I have an instinctive fear of zombies and a rebuy is, most likely, not going to result in a better outcome. Think of the saying, “Throwing good money after bad.” Do you play zombie poker?
