It all depends on the mood and prizes and it does not matter in general!

I play tournaments with different blind structures but the ones I like most are the turbo ones where the blinds are 5 or 6 minutes, for me they are the best tournaments in general

yes, 888 is a fast tournament and according to statistics, I win less than anything there. although I like quick tournaments, don't know how it

I prefer four sitngo shorthanded tables at once and turbo or hyper turbo to maximise the poker experince.I dont have time to overthink my decisions and I go with my gut feeling that is usually right.

I prefer slower tournaments, not so slow, because there are some that are almost stopping, but one that you can think of for thirty seconds is already good, it's over there

I don't like to play bingo but prefer to play poker. That's why I like slow tournaments.

High buyin slow tournaments, small/micro all fast. IMO all freerolls should be fast tournaments, its just wrong playing 7h to win 10 or less bucks [those casino freerolls for example]

I prefer knockouts - and then it doesn't really matters to me if they fast or slow - if you pay attention - you can manage

pokerstars cardschat tournaments are ok but 888 poker cardschat tournaments 10 min blinds are sometimes annoying
I don't like fast tournaments. Turbo and hyper are not for me. I'm quite slow and I don't like to think quickly, because when I'm in a hurry I make a lot of mistakes. Tournaments in which the blinds increase every 10 minutes are probably the best for me.

10 mins between blind levels seem good. Anything slower than this makes it too time consuming for freerolls. Anything faster than this gives less scope to deploy strategy.

definitely not a slow tournament - because after spending a lot of time, getting into the prize, he lost with a win of 80 percent and won 1.2 of the by-in

I prefer slow games.
With the new PS blinds, the game resembles bingo in the last third.
It's not knowledge that decides, but hands.

For me it depends on the tournament, if it is a free tournament where more than 1k players register I prefer it to be fast, but if it is like the CC ones I do like the blinds to be a little slower, there are fewer players and it is more interesting the game

Every new player love slow tournaments because they start playing and take much experience but pro gamers plays fast tournaments because they take little experience and try too play more tournaments to hours to take more expensive experience👍🏻

That's indeed not to great, but in a (P)KO game you could also consider to 3bet shove more. Even with a 20-30bb stack. Especially in a multi way situation. That makes it easier to move around with players that calling a lot and want to see flops.
