Sorry didn't see the first part. Well basically cash is deeper than most stages of a tournament, so you'd play the beginning of a tournament much the same way. You can afford to play implied odds
hands like suited connectors and low pocket pairs, and at the same time you have to be able to let your TPTK hands go. There's also more room to maneuver so it is possible to make a double barrel bluff without getting committed. Basically as stacks increase, you want to play more hands and you need a better one to stack off with. Also something very important in both tournaments and cash games is position, but more so in cash games, because there's a lot more room to play. If you're shortstacked in a tournament, position doesn't matter much but as stacks are deeper you get more information and more of an advantage of controlling the size of the pot. Shortstacked, pot control really doesn't exist, because if both players have some kind of hand (like TP or better) the money's going in regardless. In a cash game if you've only got top pair with a weak or mid kicker, you don't want to see a big pot and want to do your best to keep the pot small, and position helps immensely in this. Hope this is what you were looking for.
