Personally, I like hyper turbo poprq so much time is not wasted. you just have to have a little luck in the first hands to grow your chips

I prefer the slower tournaments bc the end game where all the money is decided is deeper and has less luck involved. Interesting that everyone can have different opinions and thats why they have all the different formats :)

Regular/slow. I think you have more time to act.
In a hyper-turbo MTT you have nothing post-flop action.

I love playing long game tournaments as I find you have more hands to go through then the turbo games.

I like hyper turbo only when it comes to sit & go, I prefer tournaments at normal speed

I prefer the slow tournaments for this same reason, but end up playing hyper most of the time, due to a lack of time on my part.

I play hyper for fun. Turbo when i don't have much time to play and Slow when i want to play a good poker. Slow is my preference.

slow

I enjoy the slower tournaments more. I feel like it offers more decisions to be made and lets the skill of the game shine through more. The faster ones although fun, feel as though it gets too limited on decision making once the blinds get to a certain level. There is less nuance to it, but if you're trying to save time and still need your poker fix they are definitely the way to go.

Hyper is mostly luck. The problem is you can play much more hyper tournaments in a time frame but even if you are a great player, your advantage will be much smaller than in a normal tournament. They are good for training certain skills like red zone playing but in general I don't like them. Sometimes I play turbo S&G, they also require a lot of luck but they give quite a good balance between speed and proper gameplay. As for MTT I play only regular. Even turbo is too much for me. It still takes a lot of time to finnish one but it requires so much luck that I don't find it entertaining. Regulars also require luck but during first 2-3 hours you need to play good poker at least.

1. As $/hour
hyper > turbo > normal > slow
2. As edge
slow > normal > turbo > hyper
3. As variance, needed roll
hyper > turbo > normal > slow
4. As "fun"
hyper > turbo > normal > slow

What I prefer? I don't know...I prefer to not play poker. If it is possible... I hate the poker. So much...

Currently I'm playing turbos MTT , i find them very fun to play and they are fast.
I used to play slow tournaments but after you play a turbo or a hyper turbo , it's kinda hard to return to slow tournaments . Turbo and hyper tourneys are good if you are grinding them , they are little bit high variance but you can earn more $/h .

I prefer turbo tournaments inside the MTT, sometimes I play sit n go. I prefer the game to spin fast.

I like slow tournaments more, because if good hands don't come, there is always an opportunity to improve your position in the tournament.

Each one has a different strategy, the slow ones are of more skill than the rest, the turbo ones are push and fold knowledge, and the hyper ones are a lottery,I prefer the slow ones.

Probably turbo. With hyper many times you will be blinded out without decent card and slow are too long for me. Best would be mix of those, slow at the beginning, turbo in the middle and hyper at the late phase.

I prefer the slow tournaments and freezeout, more time to recover from a bad move.

My favorites are turbos and hyper turbos. They have a quicker outcome unlike tournaments with a normal structure
