Another very popular variation of the standard Poker Holdem Tournament is the Super Stack version. Super Stack Holdem Poker tournaments differ from the standard knock out version is that players are issued with considerably more playing chips for their entry fee. For example the average multi-table tournaments will begin with contestants being issue an average of two thousand playing chips, while in Super Stack tournaments they are issued at least three times that amount and sometimes even four.
As you would imagine this makes for a completely different type of tournaments where re-buys and add-ons are almost non- existent and which usually take a lot longer to complete, unless there are a lot of very aggressive players at the table.
Players who choose to take part in Super Stack Poker Holdem tournaments do so in the knowledge that they won't be frozen out too early if they choose to wait on hands coming. Usually a Super Stack tournament will start off with pretty low blinds sometimes 10-20 playing chips which are not a frightening high figure when you consider that a player could be starting the tournament with a chip stack of between 7,000 to 8,000. This means that a player goes into the tournament knowing that they can finance between 300 to 350 big blinds and antes
Super Stack tournament certainly suit the tight player, but that doesn't mean that they can't also serve as a haven for the aggressive player who wants to control play and build themselves a large chip stack early in the tournament.
As ever the player who ends up with all the chips is the winner, no matter how long it takes.
