      normal of course.

      But meny people prefer turbo's cause it doesnt take as long.

      Where do you think better winrate per hour could be achieved? As Cardbender said, you can have better ROI at normal ones but they also take longer.

      but imagine this :

      normal (8-9 minutes blinds level) ... im play them 8x5,5$ at one session with ROI of 20-22% it takes me maybe 60-80 minutes to end this session ... so my average profit is 44x0.21= 9$ per 60-80 minutes..

      turbos: (3 min. blinds) ... mathematicly they are 3 times faster then normal..(but in my opinion this number is 4 or more) ...
      so if my ROI will be half... 11% ... so 8x5,5$=44x0,11= 4,5$ multiple by 3 coz i can play 24 insted of 8 .... 4,5$x3=13,5$


      so conclusion : normal 9$ turbos 13,5$ at same time..

      and that is huge differnce

      You also play less hands, and get less good cards.

      Personally I like to play turbos on stars but normal speed everywhere else.

      I just feel more comfortable on the turbos on stars and the normal speed ones take sooooo long.

      I play only turbos, but I play only 2 tables at a time
      so if you're a tight player or a heavy multitabler I guess you should play normal ones

      If you are "heavy multitabler" it maybe better to play turbos.
      The hourly rate is the important thing here.
      After all you have free time to play. Not free hands :P
      Or do we...

      Turbo.. cause I can be aggressive after 10 minutes... need to get the blinds up as quick as possible for that.

      There is also another important thing you forgot to add into calculation which is that i doubt that if you play 8 normal same time you could do with playing 8 turbos at same time since also thinking time is decreased. SO probably you'll play 6 turbos same time at least at start.

      I think that if you are thinking about trying them you should and after lets say few rounds you'll already get the image what suits to you better.
