For a more top heavy tournament structure, we should treat chip expected value
(regular pot odds
) the same as tournament expected value. So yeah, you can play a little looser in top heavy tournaments compared to SnG's.
However, -EV decisions are always bad. Just because a tournament is large, does not mean you should be shoving 22 over UTG raises early in the tournament to try and double up quick.
That's not really an opinion thing, either. I hate when people ask for opinions when lots of the time the answer is going to be factual.
