I have often heard that hands are played differently in cash games from tournament play. Take some of the top hands like AKs, AA, JJ, AQo. How would these hands be played from the BB, mid and UTG in both cash and tournaments ?
In my opinion too much is made of cash vs tournaments. The big difference is typically everyone is always deep stacked in cash since you can always reload. So you can play more speculative hands. But early in tournaments when everyone is deep stacked hands should be played similarly.

re: Poker & Cash vs Tournament
I believe that before the flop there is not much difference in the form played of these hands, the big differential of the cash is the post flop that yes it makes much difference in the tournament and easier to put the possible hands that a player would pay the increase in the cash the range and much larger.

I think the best thing is to have intuition when playing these hands and knowing that you can win chips or money in both circumstances is to make the best game of your position.
