# Smaller fee in turbo SNG, is it an advantage in the long run?

Hello.

I am giving 888 a last chance, the rake on this site is absurd. I dont know if it's me or if 888 had turbo SNG all the time, but i realized today that there are actually turbo SNG on 888 just like on Pokerstars.

I want to know if i am thinking right about this, because it feels wrong in some way. Then at the same time it seems logical that the smaller the fee the bigger edge do i get.

Normal SNG 1dollar. Fee 0.15 dollar
Turbo SNG 1dollar. Fee 0.1 dollar

Logical my mind says that 0.1 dollar in fee is a huge advantage but then i know that the variance is bigger in turbo. NOW do i wonder if the variance is 1.5x in turbo than in normal becuase if it is then they are both the same in the long run?

Lets say i play 1000 SNG
Normal .15 x 1000= 150 dollar
Turbo .1 x 1000= 100 dollar

Total prize pool in normal 7.65 dollar
""""" in turbo 8.05 dollar

I really dont know how i shall calculate this. I would bet a large amount off money that 888 already have done those calculations, so its the same in the long run and then i am just leaving 888. Because the are charging 60% of my winnings over 500 games. Sad

Your roi in turbos will be smaller than in regulars, but in a long term you playing the same time do more rake, i think thats the correct point of view.

Success in tables!

Hey Frexas22,

I'll move this to the 'SnG' board, where it will be more likely seen by players who will have an answer for you.

Yes fee is high and 5 dollar fee is 4 times bigger but also you get 20/12/8 so it's up to you where to play because if you want to get money from sng 1 dollar will take you some time. Sometimes I also think no point to play because of fees but poker is fun.
