In my view these type of tournaments are easier to play. You encounter less tough decisions, your decisions are normally pretty "black or white" (clear cut right or wrong) instead of the"greyish" (can make an argument to play different ways).
Bluffing occurs in small doses but it is easy to not get bluffed by making correct decisions especially pre-flop.
Learning how to play and gaining experience from playing this type of tournament can only help your overall tournament play. A vast number of tournaments become shallow just before money bubble and just before final tables.
A lot of players view these as luck fests , but the thing is one you gain experience by playing for good amount of time and become aquainted with shove/fold ranges then you can absolutely be profitable for sure
Its just a matter of studying and understanding the tourney and devising a compatible strategy taking bankroll ,our playing style into consideration thats it
This Tourney is like a package of Fun , excitement , fast tourney completion , simple decisions ,frustration by bad beats, getting lucky etc
thats why i love these as i being a profitable grinder of turbo tourneys and would love to play a lot in a day
