Many of the books, and even input from our resident pros, is within the context of a larger buy-in tournament which is generally much deeper stacked and longer blind levels. What are some the key things we need to bear in mind when considering input about those tournaments and how it translates to the small, weekly tournaments? These are tournaments where you perhaps start with 10,000 chips and face blind levels of 15-20 minutes. Although average stack should not be the benchmark, it is useful as a reference point -- and in these low buy-in weekly tournaments, often the final table has an average stack of 10-15 big blinds. How do we adjust our learning about larger tournament strategy and what are the key things to consider in these types of tournaments that is different than the larger buy-in, multiple day tournaments?
