A while ago, Ryan posted an entry about a Negreanu article which dealt with deep stack poker. There was some discussion about what the differences were with deep stack poker versus normal stack poker. Well last night was an experiment in that arena. Starting stacks were typically 400 units though you could buy in for as little as 200 units. Rebuys were constant throughout the night and by the end of the night I was even having to buy straps off of players to get straps for the rebuys. The table had over 5700 chips on it when we broke the game, and keep in mind this is with 1/2 blinds. That's an *average* of over 800 units per person but of course the stack sizes differed. If two of the big stacks got into a hand together there could have been over six buy-ins on the line.
If you don't think that deep stack poker changes anything about how you play, I invite you to come along to the next deep stack night to see for yourself.
