SNG – How to adapt to fast blind levels?

Hi guys,

specifically I’m talking about the Blind Levels for full ring SnGs at 888poker.

At the turbo SnGS they are 10/20, 20/40(5), 30/60(5), 50/100(10), 75/150(15), 100/200(20), 150/300(30) … and increase every 4min. (In the normal ones same Steps but every 8min)

For comparison Turbos at PS and PP: 10/20, 15/30, 25/50, 40/80, 60/120, 80/160, 100/200, 150/300 every 5min.

I know as faster as it gets more luck is involved, but the Turbos have only 10% rake on 888 (normal ones have 15%).

Im not sure how i should change my playing style to these Blind levels. Should i loosen up because time is running against me and i need to accumulate Chips or should I tighten up only playing my premium hands and trying to make big profit with them so I make it to the bubble?

Right now i play tighter which leads often to the situation that I’m down to 15BB and didn’t even play one hand. Then its basically a shove or fold game.

Don’t know if its relevant: I play mainly the 1$ SnGs and sprinkle some 3$ ones in. I am a slight winning player with a few Dollars plus every session, but there is definitely air!

Thank you in Advance SNG - How to adapt to fast blind levels?
