If you get one that pushes every hand.... then you just have to pick your spots and gamble with them. Get them in when you're ahead is about all you can hope for..... or.... more hands like the first one

2nd hand... nothing you can do. I've seen way too many AA's beat this week.

These are not for every one you will need a good Turbo Game and understanding to have good success in these.

If you not a reg Turbo player you might not want to play as they play can seem very wild and you will not feel comfortable in this game

With that said Best of Luck

Do a search in any GOOD poker forum and there will be some great advice for these games. I can't remember the guys name. But, at the time he was one of the most profitable players in these and would actually send you via email his theory on this specific game. I am sure he's still out there but one does need a taste for this specific 180 man game.

Badbeat section is to the left door

I find its best to stay away from these if your roll isnt well cushioned.
Variance can kill all ambition and these have turned some people mad.
If your not a aggressive player I would look to play something else.

have you tried playing the $4.40 180?
Might be more your speed.

usually the only time play gets tight in these is bubble time for the money or when theres 10 players left
