re: Poker & Turbo's or normal Sit and go's
For the sake of Poker, turbo is probably not the way to go. I've played alot of brick and mortar casino poker and have never played turbo in "real life". I like to think of online as a chance to practice hand selection for live poker. Online you obviously don't get the real off of people but can develop reading betting habits. The further you get from the fundamentals of the game, less benefit you get from playing the game. On the other hand however, turbo can be a fun way to develop patience. I have found that playing in turbo, waiting for cards can be more difficult than a slow paced game. The blinds going up faster seem to make the decisions to seem more frantic (even though they're not). If you wait for a good starting hand and bet big when they hit you can get way out in front pretty quickly. Once out in front I really put people on a decision every time that i get good cards preflop. This adds to their panic...a fast clock, short levels, and big chip decisions. It's a recipe for disaster. But as always big bets can equal big swings so timing is even more important than usual. Anyway, probably more than what you were looking for when you asked the question, but it was fun to think about!!!
