The amount of money you earn by trying to beat the novice players who play small will be more than the professional players who play big. You can spend a long time waiting for professionals to make mistakes. You can also earn big when it happens. But since the novice players will make a lot of simple mistakes in the same time, the total money you earn will be more.
A little bit of economics. The marginal utility of money gradually decreases. If you have $ 1 million, you won’t risk all your money to get a second million dollars. Because the number of new things you can get with a second million $ is limited. If you had 1000 chips when you first entered poker tournaments, you cannot risk it all. Otherwise, you may be out of the tournament in the first stage. But as you get closer to the final table, there will be situations worth risking all of your chips.
