Just wondering which blind structure do my fellow CC members usually prefer, and why?

i see this two structures very common on ACR.

1 - 25,000 starting stack, 5 min levels

2 - 2,500 starting stack, 12 min levels


Lately I've been playing Venom satellites. They offer these 2 types of tourney in which top few finishers get seats to the next steps

I personally live the deep stack, fast blinds, allows for more skill imo

Hello, i prefer hyper-turbo. I'm playing spin and go. It's diffucult for me bad beat after 5 hours play.

I prefer deep/turbo over normal/slow. Its because faster blinds make for a faster pace game and could get rid of the people who are slowly playing in the game or mass sitout online from taking up so much time from game play time.

Also its faster so it may take less time I think to make it to the money (if you could make it there)

Hello, I think that like most players, I prefer the game to be relatively fast although tournaments with more can last for many hours. the more chips at the beginning I think tournaments last longer.:D

The important is not the starting stack in chips but in big blinds. A fast tournament structure gives less time to outplay your opponents, and it also tend to make the average stack short. This is because, when players get less chances to get involved, before blinds go up, they are less likely to bust or increase their stack. Short stacks take some of the skill out of the game, so generally I prefer a not to fast structure, but I will play turbos, if nothing else is running, or if I dont have time for normal tournaments. In the latter case it will typically be a turbo SnG, since a large turbo tournament still takes 2-3 hours or more to complete.

I really like deep stack turbo. You're given enough ammo (chips) to do some damage if you're willing to play TAG poker in the initial levels.

I like turbo because people cant without to long. I usually play normal if I'm playing a tournament and sit n gos. More chips the more better.

I prefer taking my time to play and waiting for good hole cards in position. For this reason, I like deep stacked tournaments. They do take time but I prefer not to play under pressure from the blinds.

That being said, if I do not have much time, a turbo game is fine with me. I usually play freerolls and .10 cent tourneys. When I feel like getting frisky, I go to the cash games and tend to blow my bankroll.

I know one thing. I like freezeouts over rebuys and addons and reentries any day. Nice job in that tourney. I know it's not the finish you wanted. Saw the last hand. Pretty ugly after the flop. That sucked but you played well.

I enjoy playing turbo bounty tournaments the most to be honest. But I have a higher ROI in slower structured games even though I don’t enjoy them as much.

TURBO, you get to bigger stacks quicker. Better for good players

more chips = more ammo in the clip
although hyper tourneys with fast levels and early Antes seem to weed out the weak early on they are great to get your poker fix during lunch time

Be normal or Turbo for me at SNG. But also love playing Deep Stack MTTs when I have time. Was in one last night 480 players. Was 4hours playing. Good test of patience.

I prefer slow pace. Less luck involved in my opinion.

Ich bin auch ein Freund von langsam steigenden Blinds, lieber weniger Chips am Anfang, weniger aber die Zeit sich ein Haufen Hände anzuschauen und eventuell auch wurde gut bekommen.

In the options suggested I would opt to choose option 2 - 2,500 starting stack, 12 min levels.

If you Multi table deep stacks and slow blinds are just fine.
