freerolls are like a bingo game..lucky wins..leaderboards freeroll are a litlle different after the middle off the tournament..but in the beggining all in is the key word ...so i think that s why the blinds are so fast..don t really like pokerstars because of that

Posted by Jibberish: turbo means u have to broaden your opening hand selection, stop being such nits and learn how to play post flop
Turbos are about preflop shoving and calling,not postflop play (because its almost impossible to beat the time of blinds going up in building your stack,plus others people's effective stacks are smaller as well which will result in preflop push/fold play by them as well)

im guessing this is something to do with it being a turbo? if it is ive had this discussion with a few people that say turbos are just donkfests but this is not the case and as ATM says shoving and knowing who and when to call and what with is alot to do with it. I do still think you can get a decent amount of flop play in turbos too, of course it matter who your in the hand against and the situation blinds stacks position ect. not to much different from a tourney with 10 15min blinds because it gets to a time in 10, 15 blinds that the blinds get to big and its a shove fest too and the blinds tend to be the same size against the same size of stacks it just happens quicker in a turbo.
I have dragged on a bit here but my point is there is alot of decent play in turbos just not as many hands which is fantastic in my eyes and who in there right mind wants to play a freeroll with 15min blinds

@primitivo. Why you think i cant comment. I played in the Fulltilt leaderboard, i believe the number of entrants is the same, so the only thing that might be different is the time of blinds. You think that the leaderboard in FT wasnt a bingo play at some point or all of it ?
