Really, is it only about lucky??

Or Is there any way to have more chances on that game??

Just few minutes to choose the right cards... I really didn't understand that...
If you guys already won, how did u do? any strategy to teach??
thanks!:bandit:

In my opinion this is a casino, not a sport. Rake reaches 10%, I do not understand how in 2 minutes you can beat it. In this format, I prefer the pokerstars spin&go.

It's a lottery. You're really playing for the big prizes that sometimes spin. Individual results are absolutely meaningless. You can try all the strategy that you want.. fold so that other players get eliminated when everyone jams if multiple players can cash.. exploit weak players for a little edge at the buzzer.. but when you all go all-in and see how one player defies all odds to win, it really doesn't matter. I have been ahead 7 double-ups and still lost in the end. It's all up to 888's RNG.

Hello.
In my opinion, tournaments of this format are a quick way to spend money. I recommend that you play in tournaments where you can win, thanks to your experience and skill.

Hi.
In my opinion, such games are more like casinos. But sometimes I also play in such tournaments. I think the best strategy for such tournaments is to wait for strong cards and thus double your stack.
Good luck.

Just FYI in case you are thinking of playing Blast because of free Blast tickets that you may have received, you can use them instead on any tournament or SnG with the same value.

I sometimes play such a game in blast tournaments, I try to play good cards in the hand but this does not always happen, I think that this game is more for good luck, if you like this game then I want you to have more luck with such tournaments!

i don't see any point to blast sng's as said it is all just luck,although i do think there's a benefit to playing spin & go's on stars,mainly HU practice with just a little chance of winning a good payout,on the bad side a bit easier to get tilted but we take the good with the bad.

I see 888 has started awarding $0.10 Blast tickets from their rigged wheel so it doesn't just keep landing on the lowest freeroll ticket so much anymore. I looked to use it in a 10 person SnG but didn't work. Not impressed.

yesterday I played perhaps times 40-45, on $0.1. we had to level up. won a couple bucks. strategies in this format do not work. either wait for a premium card or bluff. it's mostly push-fold.

twice dropped here is a prize *10. one won, and the other flew. many times, I've gotten *5. I like this format. even if you are unlucky.

Not much of a strategy however if your going to play blast either fold or all in because every dollar counts in blast.

It is a pure luck based poker. The key thing is when a big prize pool hits and we win it and take the retirement from Blast poker.

I really do not like this type of spin n go. It's like gaming machines. Run more tables and go for tea / food, etc. And then how lucky you are. At pokerstars I like this type of game more.

I have tried it (micro buy in ) and I really didn't like it ( I don't know if the 2 mins available for gameplay is the same not only at micros , but at all (higher) buy ins :) ) , so I play it only for fun rarely if I have some good winnings from other games . PS spin and goes are better imo in contrast to the blast games , you have more opportunities to play some hands 3 handed before blinds get higher , plus you choose what hands to shove :) .

I mean , luck is the only factor that determines the final winner at blast games . Yesterday I had the chip lead , me and one more remaining in the game , then all-ins started : first coinflip I lost , second I also lost with very bad hands . To get two other stacks and triple your own , I don't think 2 mins are enough .

Maybe if the games lasted for more than 2 min before all ins , that would be interesting and better :) .

Higher buyins games like $5 etc has 5 minutes blind structure. But again, in the end you are force to play auto shoving game.

Better than 2 min , haven't tried 5min games , but still , imo , I don't think with 5min you are able to play more/enough hands and have a complete/better gaming experience .

You can use strategy to put yourself in the best position when the buzzer goes for everyone all-in, but in the end, it's out of your control. Stick to tourneys, cash games and SnGs

Just testing the Blast...played 10 cent...4 games I won 2 and broke even
I call that a win
ACR Jackpots seem to pay better more often and there is no time limit
