Turbo poker and turbo tournaments are a great option for card players who lack the free time for the slower pace of a typical poker table. Turbo increases the speed of play in two ways; players are given a shorter space of time to make decisions during each hand and by increasing the blinds at a much faster pace than traditional poker tournaments. Players are forced to make quick decisions with each hand and one bad choice can cause a player to suddenly be outside looking in as play continues without him or her. Being extra cautious with hands can backfire as well; blinds go up at a much quicker pace and a player is forced to take chances and play hands they would not necessarily play or watch their chips being eaten away by the blinds.
Turbo speed poker has become popular for many players who do not have the free time to sit at the virtual tables for long periods of time. The speed of the game has an extra hint of danger as players must make decisions about each hand quickly and still manage a bankroll that disappear quickly to ever-increasing large and small blinds. With over $1 million in guaranteed prize money, this is an event that serious poker players will not want to miss. With over 50 events to choose from, there are plenty of chances for poker players to test their skills at the pler tables of Ignition Casino and the casino’s 12 Days of Turbo Poker.
