Yup, I love playing against players like you in sit n go's at the bubble, granted I don't play 6 seaters, either 9 or 10, with 3 payout places, I guess the dynamic changes with only 2 spots paying, 4/5 handed in 9 seaters I don't mind playing super aggressive, picking up blinds, and taking a flip to get a stack to practically guarantee Heads Up. If you roll over, you're very rarely going to have a competing stack heads up, your opponents are going to have a wide range, and you're rarely going to be a massive dog nearly whatever the hand, fight fire with fire. Some players may not be as aggressive into your blinds as a result, making things a little easier.
Over the course of a few orbits on the bubble, you'll be able to make more educated decisions, you will gauge your opponents better, and have a more playable stack playing aggressive than just rolling over and folding all the time waiting for a half decent hand that probably isn't a massive favourite with which you won't be getting value after being blinded through a few orbits anyway!
