re: Poker & Deepstacks Tournament Strategy
The benefit of playing deepstacked isn't so that you can 'play more hands' necessarily... but what it does mean is... you're getting the right implied odds
to call behind preflop with SC's and low pp's, in hopes of hitting a monster draw/hand, which you might be able to stack off MR. No Fold his TPTK or big overpr.
The reason you might see some larger preflop raises in early levels is by players who are holding big pairs and don't want those SC's to come along to see a flop (or the small pkt. prs. trying to set mine).
Having a bigger starting stack in relation to the size of the blinds changes the type of play that can be profitable on a table. Use this to your advantage... not just as an excuse to spew off chips foolishly.
