What is a Deepstack Poker Tournament?

A Deepstack poker tournament is when you begin the tournament with a lot of chips. For example, in the WSOP Circuit ring events, you usually start with 15,000 chips. However, in the Deepstack events, you begin with 30,000 chips.

A lot of players enjoy playing Deepstack poker tournaments because it’s more about poker skills and less about variance. There is still variance, but with that many chips, you know you will have plenty of time to find an excellent spot to chip-up. Chip-up means you are increasing your chip count.

The one potential downside, depending on the person, is that Deepstack poker tournaments are very long. If you finish In The Money, you will have spent many hours getting there.

Deepstack poker tournaments are best suited for people who have a lot of endurance, physically and mentally. Deepstack poker tournaments usually have large prize pools, but they require a large time investment.

If you love the idea of sitting at a poker table for 7-15 hours while folding most of the time, because you enjoy the atmosphere, then it might be the tournament for you.
