Bully those trying to hang in there, especially as the bubble approaches.
Steal blinds from late position.
Don't start spewing just because you have a big stack.

You can't ease-up on the aggression simply because you're one of the big stacks. Play aggro, steal a lot, play particularly aggro against those just trying to coast into the money. Be aware, though, that need to play smart as well as aggressive. Don't just piss away your big stack with foolish moves just because you think you can afford it.
