Right. Before the FT you only see the hands that matter. In the old cash games? Same thing.

1. Small stack pushes
2. Large stack bullying.
3. Gear changes
4. The importance of the button raise
5. When a bluff really isn't even a bluff
... and many other things.
There's this gradual slide from tourney play, to bubble play, to FT play, to the money jump play, to HU play. And it's kinda like watching a horse race. Things start slow, but they end up getting with it.
