when you get a chip lead in the early phase go for analysing the opponents and his ranges which helps in keeping the stack consistent otherwise the limpers may take advantage out of you to double themselves up, stick and focus on the same scenario on playing TAG and avoid calling short stacks all ins with A 9 and A 9- hands, as the short stack mostly shove with a premium hand though we get greedy with KQ off too sometimes , try to take advantage with the off and suited connectors in the middle phase if you are in top 10.
The following hands have to be ignored againt huge all ins on PS as i feel(opinions may differ)
KJ,KQ,K10 (off and suited)
Best of luck at the tables.
