      I am a cash player, I already know the basics of poker I think ;) But I need to play the best as i can in Hyperturbo SnGs... if you have any resource I can read to win an edge in these type of tournaments, I would be very thankful!

      Type: Hyper Turbo SnG
      Number of players: 6 players
      Starting Chips: 500
      Blinds Structure:
      Level 1: 25/50 Ante 10
      Level 2: 50/100 Ante 20
      Level 3: 100/200 Ante 40
      Level 4: 200/400 Ante 80

      Hands/Level: 9

      It's a pretty fast tournament! But it's not push or fold, so... I think one can have an edge

      Hi, Volrath89,
      Your starting stack is 10 BB -- so some hands are open shove right out of the box.

      6 players at the table, but how many total?

      Assuming 6 total, check out this:
      HoldemResources Nash Results

      Play with the payout structure and other parameters to your heart's content.

      But the point is that according to this tool, UTG can shove almost 1/4 of all hands.

      These aren't for the faint of heart...
      Cheers,

      Thank you!

      Very useful!

      The PU/CA/OC columns mean Push, Call, Overcall, right? (took me a while to make sense of them hehe)

      To be honest, I don't think I ever noticed those before -- maybe they're new.

      Your guess is better than Punjab University, California, Oral Contraceptive. :coolface:
