Hi, I'm starting to play little tourneys now. I'm wondering if the 2 threw 10 rule applies to the first three blinds. Or does it apply all the time only if you have the chip stack to use?

Hi Westlyking,

As I understand it the rule applies throughout a tournament and not just the first 3 levels. This is of course dependent on you having a big enough chip stack to play. So only risk 2% with Pocket 2's and 8% with pocket 8's.
