Calibanboy has it in one. HoH vol I, is mainly based on the deep stacked early stages of the game, tight players tend to get less action, naturally, and they are more difficuly to bust, hence they win smaller pots. Loose players however get more action, and while the pots they win are bigger, so are the pots they lose, so they are either big stacked by the mid stages or busto, usually busto.
The tight table image that you form in this early stage of the game, should open up your potential of winning the blinds and antes at the later stages of the game when it actually matters much more.
Hope this makes sense Misch.
