This. Bubble Factor is to be exploited and stealing range goes out the window, to be replaced by tons of things like 10 7 suited, 34s, and so on. Actually keeping the bubble going is better than getting someone out. The amount you can steal on the bubble is massive, the longer the bubble, the better.
Attack the mid stacks, not the small stacks. Small stacks pushing range will actually widen and beat your steal range quite often, with you prices in to make the call. Mid stacks will be happy to sit and wait to make the minimum cash....
MTTs are about winning, not making the min payout for a 50% profit after 4+ hours!
