      anyone ever seen em before? u start with 300 chips n the blind level increases every 3 mins :baby: its basically push/fold mode at the start, no time to be card dead.

      I tried one just for fun n lost with A6 BB vs SB's AQ with only 4 BB's left -_-
      You have to be a luckbox to win, I don't think I'll be playing them again

      wooow. Can you imagine anyone making a living off of those tables at high stakes? LMAO, I thought turbo Sit 'n Gos were for me. Not until recently that is. Bad streak of luck, but anyways, that's insane! And yes, you start off at 10BB, so there's no limping -- straight pushing and folding baby!!

      Super Turbos on Titan you start with 1500 chips and blinds increase every minute. It seems like a waste of time, blinds increase basically every hand, way too much of a gamble for me.

      the heads up is OK. for some reason, when donks see "super turbo" they figure it means "super loose". so if you pick up a hand, you can usually stack them at level 1-3

      that is only if you can pick a real good hand with 300 chips and blinds increasing superfast.

      yeah but then they start playing far too tight when it gets to shortish blinds... and you can push wiiide.

      not to mention the value you get when they finally snap off a call with 43s all in pre.
