never hurts i'm sure it will get some interest
3 ko's in 4 games...you're slacking man, get your finger oot ....Cashing in 4 is excellent though......didnt know you played turbo ko's...although i should have guessed lol...
It was 3 KO's in 6 games, of which I cashed 5. Just wasn't getting any great cards but kept my stack alive through. Given I was so overall card dead it was probably a good thing that they were not turbo's
regular ko's dont take that long either, sometimes under an hour and the others just over...
turbos are usually around the 50 min mark, I find the reg's are 75 min+ to finish
whats the difference in strat that you use between the two? might do the turbos myself when i get a bigger roll if i can get a few tips on what i need to change from the regs...
difference being the blinds means they get big quicker so you approach various stages of the mtt quicker and obviously have less time to wait for hands so being apt in a good push/fold strategy towards the larger blinds is necessary
did you go for thin value against the lag HU?....Maybe better keeping the pots quite low until you hit the flop hard then pump it up....and auto shove pre the premiums...they usually call with their A4'S.
most comments in bold above.
Against the guy heads up, I had QJ of hearts he had Ax, JJ9 flop. A turn, A river. it was aipf so i was behind but he had been pretty much shoving atc so i took a stand with what i felt was a good hand against his range. I was joyed on the flop but well didn't stay that way.
Just finished a set of 5 turbos which went much better, cashed 4/5 with with 2 1sts, 1 2nd, 1 3rd and 10 bounties between them. A very nice score, would be wicked if that trend could continue lol.
Edit: Another note on turbo vs reg, obviously the turbo are higher variance and i started over on ftp playing the reg and mix turbo but had a better winrate in reg like 2x the turbo but because the turbo's were getting the most traffic and I was trying to do volume i started just playing them and well the regs feel super slow now.
