As you can see from the charts, the less big blinds you have the less strength you need in your hand to push all in. The better your position the less hand strength you need. This is where the discrepancy arises. In many casinos around the world they play MTT’s nightly and will have small buy ins. I have found in my time playing that in these tournaments the 10 big blind chart is often used.

This is mainly because it is a small buy-in comp, so most of these players are recreational players rather than players that play regularly and do it to make a profit.  Players will call off their stacks with hands that they ‘like’ that do not have the strength that they should have to call player’s all-ins from the position they are in. These players have played for fun and are not there to make money.

However, you will often find in tournaments with a bigger buy-in and therefore a bigger prize pool players will hold onto their chips for longer. When playing a 3-day event, a player does not want to get their 10 big blinds in light when they can wait for a bigger (better strength) hand. In these ‘bigger’ comps, the blind levels are often longer and the structure wider giving the players longer to survive and wait with less chips.

It is easy for players with big stacks to put pressure on the small stacks because they do not want to get their chips in with a bad hand because it feels like a waste of money and time.

In my personal experience, I like to wait to get the correct hand and position before I risk my tournament life. Once a double up has to be acquired the building up stage becomes easier and it is harder for other players to put you at risk again.
