      lately I have been experimenting with different format games. I suddenly came across the hyper turbos 6max games and liked them because they are pure ICM push/fold scenirio. And because so many people play these poorly I believe one can gain a small edge. Below are my results on a small sample of $7.50 hyper turbos 6 max. Started last night.



      I obviously dont expect to beat the game at this winrate and that this is a big upswing for these. If I was to beat these at a 5% roi I would be happy because I the great amount of rakeback I can get off them in a short amount of time.

      plus points..
      -there fun
      -quick
      -lots of rake
      -dont require much thought at low stakes so multitabling is +EV
      -many bad opponents

      negectives..
      -very swingy
      -never improve on your game simply a means of making money like a robot.


      also I would like to know if there is anyone in the community that plays these and has had much success with them?

      yes its 7-0.5. On fulltilt and I get 27% rake back through this site I think. Status will easily be gold and platinum within days.

      payout is
      1st $27.30
      2nd $14.70

      earnt $350 of rake after 2/3days so thats about $94 I hope to get on pay day.

      i've been playing the $3.50 + $0.30, 10 handed super turbo's, haven't tried the 6max ones yet... i agree that they are very easy to make money on, the players are quite bad at ICM
