I haven't worked it out yet but it appears that when I play super fast I end up in the blinds less often than expected. At this point it is just a feeling, but seldom do the blinds play into things until they get large.
While you might set mine, and don't get me wrong, I occasionally do, but 2's 3's, 4's 5's are auto muck, 6's thru 9's are limp calls.
I can only back these up with my winnings at these games. And those winnings are making me happy. Latest triumph was todays 10K guarenteed RUSH. $24 bu-in, finished 15th for $194 and pennies. Took less than 2 hours, and approximately 400 hands. Things got slower after the bubble, when folks start in with the delay thing. Conterproductive strategy in these.
They play fast, the name is 'RUSH', not 'mosey along little dogie' poker.
