This is a discussion on Hyper Turbo within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi guys. How do You playing the Hyper Turbo tournaments with fast growing sb/bb ante ?
Do you holding yourself to the very end somehow ?
This type of tournament is played by pressing a lot, it is impossible to keep it as you would in a slower tournament, you must know how to make the right decisions, especially when you must bet strong or play a little more "quiet", you must know when you should retire in the appropriate time and avoid high-risk plays that could compromise your stack
Play them like any other tournament basing your raise/shove range on your number of BBs, and be aware that your opponents ranges will be looser in the mid stages as they get to fold/shove mode a lot faster than in regular or turbo MTTs. If you can build a big stack then steal the blinds relentlessly with raises in the mid/late stages. And pray the flips go your way!!
The turbo tournament itself is a specific tournament. At the beginning you play as a regular tournament. Some players start from the very beginning to go to allin. I think this is the wrong choice of tactics. In the future, change tactics in accordance with the size of your stack. Usually, most players have a stack of from 8 to 15 BBs and, therefore, choose the tactics of allins.
I agree with the comments here about the open shove strategy because this is the number 1 think you will use in the game after the very first levels o this types of tournaments.There is no post flop play.
You also need to understand what range of hands you have more equity to call in specific situations. Overfolding is also a massive leak in this structure.
If you have access to multitable SNG like 45/90/180 players on Pokerstars play them and understand some ICM spots and some mandatory shoving spots.I find them super profitable if you understand how to approach them.
Going sll in drrmd yo eotk until you get hit by someone holding the nuts, and just hope you have chips to rebound. You will find a whole lot of all in in hyper turbo tournaments. More luck than skill on those!

In hyper-turbo tournaments, I prefer the loose-aggressive strategy. In such tournaments, much depends on luck. Here it is necessary to try to avoid difficult situations with marginal hands and enter the bank only with the intention to put the entire stack.
A single board. What would Gipper turbo tournament was as little as possible like a lottery play either medium or large limits. At the micro-stakes players in the vast majority of this fish are constantly playing all-in on garbage hands against each other. For long periods of time, you lost all the stack. This is very similar to how casinos operate in Las Vegas. The cheapest casino you always lose. A casino with average rates and the more you win.
I'm more of a regular speed poker kind of man, rather than turbo or hyper turbo speed. That being said, turbo is not that bad, but hyper turbo is down right insane! Luck is the only thing you need in these... Because even with a decent hand, chances are 3 or 4 players with mediocre hands will limp all in, and end up beating your hand.
