If you have a decent hand - play it, don't gamble with trash hands.
I agree with this, but I like to add some.
I'd like to play way more hands on the HJ, CO, BTN and SB when hands are unopened. You have to consider how likely it is that the players behind you is gonna call or raise. Look at there stacksizes and how tight/loose they are.
In my opinion you should only play EP/MP when you want to go all-in. Don't try to steal here.
90% of the time there is a raise in front of you, they have atleast 99+, A10+, KJ+.
*EDIT* I'm working on my English =D
And I forgot to tell something. Ask yourself the question, do I need those blinds and antes?
If you are amongst the chipleaders (I think you are with 35bb?) there is no need for taking that much risks. You can tighten some more and try to steal less.
When you are average stacked, you can consider to try my strategy. You'll have a better shot at the top places when you can steal like 4 times. (REMEMBER that the average stacks are often around 20 blinds, so stealing some of them is really making a difference.)
