How do you guys adjust your strategies for turbo and hyper games? Do you up the aggression on every position? How loose should I be playing?
Honestly your strategy shouldn't change that much
The ranges you play will be the same on each stack size
The main difference is that in really slow tournaments you can pass up on close spots, whereas in hypers and turbos you generally want to take every spot that's offered to you.
If you invest some time in studying how to play 10, 15, 20 big blind stacks you'll do just fine http://pokercoachingoffer.com has really great content on that (as well as everything else) for a reasonable price.
I agree with Evan that most decisions will not change because of differing level length. Base your decision on effective stack, position, payout structure, and the other normal factors you would consider. Then just go a little wider in close spots.
My strategy changes depending on the size of the stack. In turbines, the main skill is to play short stack and push-fold. Adjustments should be made, but depending on the stage of the tournament and the opponent's range.
