Assuming my stack is not in immediate danger;
I have nothing against the hyper agro donks, they generally take themselves out early. The overly agro players often get deep, but that doesn't mean agro is the style to beat. We all know we need to be changing gears throughout a tourney, and yes, there are opportunities near the bubble, but that is often where being overly agro will kill you.
I'll go as far as to say that at the bubble, if you can afford it, dialing up the agro about 1/2 notch works fine. Else I want some return on my time investment and will coast into the money rather than donk bet 67o for my stack. 1/2 notch equates (in my book) to increasing steals maybe 1 hand every 2-3 orbits.
Everything changes when you get down to about 15bb's (m=10). We have to become more alert and willing to pounce. We still have FE, but only if we haven't abused it. Above 20 bb's you can still wait, for a good while before pouncing. Below 10 bb's and we are all near panic mode, certainly concerned, but it is there where you enter the do or die time.
Often, the cards will dictate what we do. If I'm seeing nothing cardwise, I can easily blind down to super small stack, and maybe get ITM. In those cases where you see no faces, nor aces, and no suited cards and the deck feels like it only has 2's or 7's for us, I will seldom shove ATC just to hope to get lucky.
Yeah, hindsight is wonderful when we fold 47o and it wodda won. You keep on dwelling on that K?
Toward the bubble, I change my hud to only show me like the last 40-50 hands. This gives me a better read on how my villains are playing right now. Not last week/month, but now. I think most players with HUDS do not do that, they will be looking at me like I played last year or something.
I titled myself contrarian because I play the game differently than conventional wisdom suggests. I know how to be tight, I know how to be loose, I have a reasonable post-flop game, and if anyone had a serious critique on me, they would probably point out my preflop penchant for min bets or limping.
