Super Stack tournaments are always very popular with poker players because they offer each player more playing time. Normal tournaments only start each player out with around 2000 chips.
This means that the games tend to be shorter because there is less flexibility in betting. A super stack tournament starts off with up to 10 000 chips – far more than in a regular tournament. This changes the dynamic considerably.
Instead of players being limited to perhaps 3-4 hands, in Super Stack you get the opportunity to play many more hands. The tactics can also vary considerably since the amount of chips that you hold allows you to play exactly how you want.
