This is a discussion on Hyper-Turbo Strategy within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Anyone interested in hyper tournaments? Ranges opening is much larger and players are overly aggresive as normal cost the stats so high so I want
I play hyper turbo aggressive in position after 3 level, a good strategy to train the Hyper Turbo is to play spin n go and spin go max ai you increase your chances of getting on well in this kind of play
In hyper-turbo tournaments I do several things differently.
Open my range way up from any position. Hands as low as 9To are playable. The reason being is that with the blinds as fast as they are, you can't afford to sit around and wait for premium hands. You have to play mediocrity and hope to get lucky.Once I have a healthy stack, then I start playing tight-er.
Don't raise the mediocre hands and don't be afraid to fold mediocre hands to re-raises. Just let the chips go and wait for a better spot.
Limp a lot (heh, Sir Limpsalot would be a great tag), you need to see a lot of cheap flops.
When you do have a good hand (not necessarily great) do be aggressive.
Don't bluff. People are desperately looking for chips and will call with marginal holdings.
If you are a new player, I do not recommend you the hyper turbo tournaments, I think the hyper turbo tournaments are for more experienced players.
If you want to play hyperturbo tournaments you have to have a good bank, to support the variance.
In those types of tournaments, your range of hands should be much wider.
I usually don't play a lot of hyper turbos because it becomes a lot of luck, you are forced to play hands you normally wouldn't. On the times that I do, I simply shove or fold until I bust or have a really big stack. I just wait for my hand and shove. Even when you do get a good stack, the blinds move so quick that if you are not active your stack will dwindle down quickly.
I recommend not playing tournaments hyper because the people coming there playing like crazy and do not recommend it. I think you should try for example the hyper 0.02 cent because the theme is the same and once you gain then yes, go hard.
Personally I like to start out early with a very tight range. Almost to the point my 3-bet range in actually my open range, and I'm always shoving. Now if I'm in late or the Blinds, and I am facing a thin open. say 2.5x to 3x. I will call with my typical call open range....
with that said, If I hit I'm shoving on the flop. now after about the 3rd level that's when I switch gears, typically I will have about double my starting stack at this point, and can widen my open range, push people off hands, or call low stacks....
if I'm low stacked, its basic Push/fold range at that point.
In my opinion it is more like bingo than poker. Last month i played 50 hyper turbo tournaments with a buy in from 0,02$ at pokerstars. Only one time i finished in the money at place 11.
It is hard, becouse if you play a hand you are most all in, becouse the blinds increase very fast. And often more than 3 players are in one hand and all in. You get a lot of suck outs in this kind of tournaments.
For playing poker it is better to play turbo or normally tournaments.
Hey. All of the above applies only to HU SNG games. When you play against a good opponent, you should use one of these strategies:
"Heads-Up Push/Fold Nash Equilibrium" If you feel that it is very difficult to play with an opponent, then you can just use this chart with a stack less than 20bb. On the site "holdemresources" places 2 charts (with ante and without ante).
"SAGE (Sit And Go Endgame System)" This table is universal.
"Sklansky-Chubukov numbers" This table in a heads-up game should be used even against weak players. With a stack of about 10bb. All of the above concerns the push-fold game.
"Stop'n'go". It's that when you're on the "Big Blind", then you do not do a 3bet an all-in, and you call and going an all-in on any flop. This is done because you have a short stack and your opponent will definitely respond to your a 3-bet an all-in. But when you stop, you have a lot of fold equity, and preflop with a very short stack you do not have any advantage at all.
You can also use an expelled a 3bet an all-in with stacks of 20bb when playing one-on-one. For this, I calculated the necessary ranges of BB and SB for a raise and a 3bet an all-in. In more detail, I can write about this chart if you want, since I wrote the article in Russian. In short - If an opponent make a mini-raise about 3/4 of a hands, then you make a 3-bet all-in with 50% of a hands. It's not works versus limp (go an all-in on a basis style a opponent). My chart below. If you notice an error in the calculations, then write to me. Against a donks you know well, never play a coin-flip on a preflop. Play tight, try to make limps, mini-raises and all-in only with good hands.
P.S If you play with several opponents (MTT/SNG), then be sure to read about such a thing as the "number M" of Dan Harrington. This applies not to the mathematical component, but for the strategy of the game it is very important.
When I play turbos, I like to play a wider range of cards at the beginning. Then I narrow my range as the blinds get higher. Then I narrow my range even further unless I have table chip lead. Then I will play pocket 8s or better and aq and ak. Most of the time the play is shove or fold at later stage of a turbo game so you can't play everything unless of course you have the chip lead. Even then you still want to be somewhat selective. Low suited connectors are not out of the question.
the strategy and somples and only check your blinds and when you have in position to play with hands (AA KK QQ JJ TT AK AQ AJ AT KQ KJ KT) with these hands you always have to be aggressive to steal or eliminate those donkey players!
Personally, I think that tournaments with a hyper-turbo structure are not exactly poker anymore, since there are practically no post-flop games there and practically everything is decided in all-ins. In hyper-turbo tournaments, luck is essential, and poker is the ability to play hands, and not to trust everything with simple luck.
Limiting bluffing is beneficial since I have noticed that a lot of people in hyper-turbos call too light. However, still maintain (small) C-bets provided that your stack is above like 8BBs or so.
I usually do not just play nash jam or fold unless under like 8BBs because I feel as though through a "small-ball" style, you can get the largest edge. The problem with nash is that following it religiously leads to making jams where you are gaining like 0.05BB on average. If your a strong player, that's not even close to worth it.
Just play hyper-turbos how you would normally play games, but when stack-to-blind ratios are low, small value bets and C-bets become are key. Suited and connected hands are less valuable since implied odds are worsened while pockets are hands you want you be jamming pre-flop as opposed to playing them post-flop for the same reason. Also, provided one does not hit into higher pockets, one almost always has around 50-57%.
The smaller the depth of the stack before the tournament play. Do not tear anywhere in the early and middle stages. Play is not loose. Loose players this is your goal. Play against them with medium-strength hands and above.
love turbos fasten your seat belt and pay attention to who your playing with and dont be afraid to gamble i disagree with the thought that these get tighter as play deepens I find players still playing a wide range of starting hands right up to the fnal table
