This is a discussion on Tournament strategy advise within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Middle of online tournament above average chip stack times 2. Should you put pressure on the blinds or play tight and let them fight it
I believe that being in the average of chips it is better to remain cautious keeping ranges closed, different would be with superior stacks where if we can press to rob blinds and where a failure would not compromise our stack. Anyway much has to see the type of mtt if it is slow or hyper, buy, etc. etc.
