Default Teach me how to play turbos...

Or show me somewhere to learn about them.

Single table SNG turbos.

Thanks

Basically, Turbo SNGs have no mid-game (an exaggeration for sure, but close). Play standard SNG low-blind strategy (aka ridiculously weak-tight), start stealing and re-stealing in position mid-blinds, and play solid ICM pushbot poker late.

What you sacrifice in overall ROI due to the increase in variance you theoretically recoup through the higher hourly rate.

If you haven't read Moshman's book, it's worth it, and you should frequent the SNG forum on 2+2.

They are poker variance at the most extreme. However, at the lower levels I tend to think they might attract the more impatient and instant-gratification player, thus increasing your +EV but who knows as I haven't put enough time in.

Always go all-in on the first hand with any pair Jacks or greater IMO. Folks will stack off just like in rebuy tourneys.
