      Has anyone here played in these yet?

      $4+0.40 135 player sit & go rush turbo game?

      I have only had two attempts so far, once I hit the money but went out at 15th, two hands running I went against the chip leader with flushes.

      Had KQ and QJ flush, vs A3 / 7, wasn't to nice :) .

      Second time I busted on AQ to JJ.

      People seem to drop out extremely fast and they don't last long at all, so was just wondering if anyone that has played them have any strategys yet?

      I was thinking maybe try not using the quick fold feature, play as normal poker and fold when the hand reaches you.

      This way you pay less blinds, can maybe double up as you go, and then play heavy when the blinds go up.

      I was thinking maybe it's a good idea to use the quick fold button early on when the blinds are low and then switch to taking your time when you've built a stack. Might give them a go tonight, see you at the tables ukspike !

      I also tried 2 yesterday and I thought the level of play was horrible. Unfortunately didn't make it too far due to getting sucked out on twice, it will be interesting to see if the play gets better as the money approaches. As someone noticed people drop out super quick.

      Ive played 8 of these sng's, two 13. place and one 3. place
      I don't know if this is optimal but I use the quickfold alot in the early phase because the blind levels are only 3 mins each. When the antes show up im taking it more slowly and getting my aggression up. At the last one I was playing LAG when the antes was on.
      I know you cant even count this as a sample, because its only 8, but on like 4 of them ive been sucked out. Two times AKo against Q5o and T3o, when me and the villian has equal stacks around 10-15BB.

      Im also trying to take notes, and look out for plays that I can take advantage of.
      If anyone find a better way to play them, please tell us.



      Sorry for my english.

      Hehe I do apologise for that, but I couldn't fold my aces :f_biggrin: You still managed to build back up nicely mind, well played.

      Big stack raising 80% of the time 3-handed, I pushed with AK, ran into AA :f_confused: Still, happy with 3rd, thanks :)

      Ha ha dont worry :)
      Although I did think you leveled me into thinking you were weak by asking if i was from PS :) ha ha I didnt mind though.

      Thats unlucky to go out like that.



      I have nearly finished writing up a strategy article for these...It should be up in the next 10 mins or so

      I'm sucking wind at these right now. 1 itm out of about 10,good to know that you guys stop using the quick fold button later on i tend to just keep folding till i find a playble hand prob miss a few good oppurtunitys. Keep folding small and medium pocket pairs by mistake i quick fold so fast. gotta slow down.
