This is a discussion on Regular x Turbo x Hyper within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi Guys,
How do you differentiate your strategy between Reg, Turbo and Hyper tournaments?
Trying to study some different strategies on each one of them.
I think, the main difference is, that when blinds are very fast, you need to fight a bit more to keep your stack large enough to still have fold equity. You dont have the same amount of time to "wait for better spots", so you are forced to gamble a little more for better or worse. This however only apply, when stacks get short. For the first 3-4 blind levels there is no real difference between turbo and regular speed, since few players will have busted regardless. A turbo tournament, which start with 167BB, is still 167BB poker, regardless what is going to happen later.
