I was giving the PokerStars
info, as that's the biggest site.
Full Tilt is pretty rough on their micro stakes players. For the $1 S&G's you pay a rake of $.20 for turbos instead of $.10. (IE, you pay twice as much as you would on PokerStars)
In the regular (non-turbo games the blinds go up every 6 minutes instead of every 10 like they do on PokerStars.
Yes, the Full Tilt super-turbos (where you start with 300 chips instead of 1,500) match Pokerstars' $.10 rake, but you get substantially less play because the blinds catch up to the average 300 stack very quickly.
