      I was wondering why theres not any strategy tips how to play turbos?
      Yes i know you still have to play tight and later push or fold, but still there is any difference in turbo strategy, is there?

      the strategy is the same. you just get to the push/fold phase faster

      yeah, its important to keep track of blind levels, esp when short stacked, the quick changes in blind level can quickly eat away at your Fold equity. when in these spots it can be a lot better to deviate from standard strat and push a bit earlier than usual if, for example, the next 2-3 hands are gonna leave you with a stack which just won't cut it anymore.

      You need to get prepared for a rough ride! Variance is sick, your ROI will go down and you'll need to push garbage all the time.

      theoretically you should play them exactly the same. your edge is a bit smaller in turbos but its effect on your push range is extremely small imo. with a 4.5-5.5 stack you should always search to push looser than you normally would because you will lose your fold equity next orbit and ICM doesnt consider this
