PokerStars Sit And Gos – Multi Table Turbo

Click here to read our PokerStars Review.

The Multi-Table Turbo Sit And Gos at PokerStars are a faster-paced version of their regular SnGs. The blinds escalate much more quickly, causing players to be eliminated much faster and greatly shortening the time of each tournament. There are many different buy-in levels, from $.10 all the way to $555. The higher buy-in SnGs are only played as 18 and 45-man SnGs. The 180-man Turbo’s will typically take approximately two hours to complete. The 45-man Turbo’s will typically take an hour to 90 minutes to finish.

The structure of the 180-man is different than those of the 18 and 45-mans. Here is the structure of the smaller multi-table SnGs, blinds increase every 5 minutes:

10/20

15/30

25/50

50/100

75/150

100/200

At the lower blind levels players should wait and pick their spots. Since the blinds escalate quickly it is important to try and accumulate a lot of chips early in the tournament to delay getting into push./fold mode as quickly as the rest of the field. However, it is inevitable that one will get to a point where their only option is to go all-in or fold Pre-Flop (typically when having 10BBs or less). When this time occurs it pays to be aggressive and to put pressure on other players. At the lower levels the bubble in the turbo 180-mans will occur right around the first break. If you happen to have a short-stack finding a way to make it into the money is important. If you happen to have a big-stack putting pressure on the smaller stacks who are trying to find a way to money will help gain even more chips and will leave you in good standing entering the final table.
