Deep Stack Tournament

  1. Noun

    A tournament in which players begin with an amount of chips that is relatively high in relation to the blind or ante.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Because the blind or ante is relatively small compared with total chips, the usual impact that these forced bets have of speeding up the game is reduced. The resulting increased number of hands dealt causes longer tournaments and reduces fluctuation based on the variance of cards dealt.

    EXAMPLE: "Even though there is less luck in the deep stack tournaments and so good players should have more of an advantage, the longer playing time may end up meaning better players end up spending more time for the amount of money won."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
