When playing, especially tournaments, is it better to see how many blinds we have or points? Do you notice the difference or is it the same?

At the beginning of the game at pokerstars, if I'm not mistaken, there was no option yet - betting with the blinds. Therefore, I play as I did before, the bet in the form of the sum of chips:)

Hello.
I am used to the fact that the stack size is displayed in chips. In my opinion, counting blinds is not a problem.

I absolutely do not care how to win).You can play in the blinds, but I feel more confident when I play for chips.

Showing BBs makes playing easier as you directly see stack depths without any calculations. when it was introduced in pokerstars i used it for a while but finally resorted back to showing real stacks to train my brain better for live games.

I used to be a chip person but I think blinds make calculating quicker in tourneys for me

The amount of chips you have is irrelevant. The amount of blinds you have is all that matters.

I prefer the chip count to the BBs but to be honest BBs are more convenient to calculate the 3bets or if you have to rejam versus a open raise.

I don't care what indicators will be displayed the main thing for me is to focus on the classification of my subscribers at the table I follow their game and take notes.

I guess I'm just old fashioned but I'm used to the amount of chips, so I'll just stick with that lol

BB makes the math easier. I use it on cash tables too.

I prefer to see my chip count. There are times however, when working with the smaller numbers associated with the BB view makes calculations quicker and easier. In these situations I will switch to the BB view. But for the most part, I prefer to look at my chip count.
