What are some of the strategic adjustments one must make in big ante tournaments?
One obvious one to me is that opening bet size is determined by the pot size pre flop. Are there others?


oops. I misspoke myself, I meant to ask about 'ante up' not big ante tournaments.

Definitely that Jim. Also consider stack size in terms of M instead of BB's which I think is also obvious.

I've read that the table dynamic at an ante up table is typically much more passive, since limping into a pot with almost ATC is mathematically correct much of the time, since limping is almost the same as checking.
