In a turbo multi-table tournament, can and should play in the same way as a regular tournament freezing the early blind rounds. Your game should move quite radical, but when the blinds start in terms of the average chip stack to get big.

Sit and Go Tournaments Turbo also require a similar strategy, but your aggressiveness has a notch to be kicked. In these tournaments, the blinds increase faster in relation to the total amount of chips in play and the tournament have fewer players, which means that you have even less time to wait.
