Title, basically.
It's all a coinflip apparently, no strategic decisions or anything.
Any tips? Most freerolls are Hyper, lots of cheap tourneys aswell.

Appreciate you guys taking the time!

Your range of cards has to be better than your opponent. And of course, lucky will be nedded.

Since your range and action are dependent on your relative stack size, and hypers get to high blinds faster: study charts for short stack play. And push-fold charts when you (or your opponents) get really short.

Basically, in such tournaments, everything will be decided by your luck. Your skills and experience will of course increase your chances, but luck will still play a decisive role. Hyper tournaments are tournaments for luck :)

you will need luck with your side and try to fold preflop hands many as you can and play only strong ones

In hyper turbo tournaments, I usually wait for good cards and go all-in. Basically, I play for doubling the stack, all or nothing.

Название, в общем.
Очевидно, это все подбрасывание монеты, никаких стратегических решений или чего-то еще.
Какие-нибудь советы? Большинство фрироллов — это Hyper, а также множество дешевых турниров.

Спасибо, ребята, что вы нашли время!
If you play free tournaments, just wait for a strong hand and put all the chips on the table to win there a lot of players will call your all-in and you will win a lot because they will do it with a weak hand, no coin there's just a coin you just need to pick up your hands and play more often than usual you play with medium hands and try to be more aggressive, the main thing is not afraid to play

It is a fast tournament, so you must be prepared before the game. You enter and play aggressively!

The faster the tournament, the more luck matters.
Note that cash games can be considered a lifetime tournament. In this case, you win if you are a good player and the factor called luck is the least important

Therefore, in Hyper tournaments, I play every playable hand: Ax, Kxs, 22+,suited connectors

This type of game is so powerfull to build a massive bankroll if you have a good strategy to encrease variance and have a lot of patience and play solide game

This. Also pay attention to the size of the ante. That is true for all tournaments, but its relevant to mention here, because hypers often have a large ante. If the total ante in the pot is 1,7 BB, then all ranges are significantly wider, than if its only 0,3 BB. And you can consider using larger sizing as well. Maybe you open shove 17BB deep instead of 12BB deep. Or maybe you raise 2,5BB instead of 2,1BB. Or maybe you 3-bet more instead of calling. When there are more dead chips in the pot, you need to get in there and fight more for those chips. Otherwise you will get blinded away in no time.

Hyper turbo is bingo tournaments. All your strategic decisions will not be decisive. You either get lucky or you don't :)

One thing is the hyperturbo PS saltelite games in which you enter with 10 BBs and another thing is a hyperturbo tournament with 100 BBs.
In the first one you must go a strong allin range hand and may luck be with you.
In the 100 BB hyperturbo, let's say you should prioritize playing good or average hands according to position and not get stuck waiting for the saving hand, because the flow of chips in BB go down very quickly and on certain occasions up to 22 you will have to go there.
Also in these tournaments the ranges are generally more depolarized, you will find many players who will go there with hands like A8o A6s K7s Q10o etc.
Depending on what each player feels at that moment regarding their chip stack at that moment, they will make the decision to follow.
The difference between Hiperturbo games and normal ones is the time you have to act in each hand, you must be very fast and you must be quite clear about the ranges in position to follow, in these tournaments folding is generally quite expensive.

basically for regular torunaments you should have a bankroll of 100x the buy -in and for hyper about 250x due to variance since there is more luck involved. Also a few of the others mentioned correctly that you should adjust your Open raise Range. So playing a bit looser since everyone is playing looser. But also a good strategy is to wait for a good card and go all-in.

Thank you very much, I should have made this differentiation myself. Well said, mate!

And if these never come then what :unsure:
I suppose thats the element of luck everyone is saying. I specifically created this thread because of this. I never got a figure in 25 hands lmao

Thank you to everyone that contributed. I've read all your comments and this is what I synthetized:

Are they luck games? Yes. But its still poker. You just need a hugher (does this even exist?)/bigger sample size so that you can actually apply the mathematical concepts that make "winning" poker players win.

In special, luck is basically the overwhelming factor when starting short stacked (like, <30 BB).

Again, thank you to everyone that took their time to answer this, and good luck to all!

Early on you still have time to choose the hands you play carefully, lots will bet big or go allin with marginal hands and if you are
clever you can take advantage of this, but of course you also need luck.

The most important thing is patience and not panicking about losing chips and you only have to play the same suit hand or strong hand in a good position.
Good luck;)
