Pot control is one of the pre-eminent winning MTT strategies regardless of stakes. It is a two way street and ranging is the most important aspect of it.
Getting max value and protecting a hand can keep you in a tournament long enough to win.
There is no simple formula for it however it my experience it starts pre-flop. Identifying your position on the table the proclivities your hand carries to make a hand, how that hand ranges against other potentially made hands vs you the number of players in the hand and where on the table relative with stacks sizes and the players inclinations.
That's not even comprehensive.
However a few rules of thumb which are wildly interpret-able depending on blind level and antes if any.
2.20-2.5x opens at later stages - your opening raise sets the tone for the entire pot; an extra 50 chips from you in a 3 handed pot at 25.50 or even 30.60 etc makes a huge difference post.
So bigger hands I'm assuming we have already established we want to play HU ie like the AK AQsooted etc so in position an overbet - 3.5x BBs even can help control a pot more than a min raise even though you have increased your bet size you have now taken a player or 2 calling range down and depreciated the aggregate pot size as well as reduced the chance of a hand slipping by your ranging.
But with a J10 or even a 57 suited you are seeking strait, perhaps 2 pairs and need better implied odds
to make such a hand profitable so an under raise to juice the pot and disguise your range pre is more valuable. With the 57 etc hands trips are generally good, however the 910-KQ hands trips can just as often help you find an early rail seat.
I could ramble on but take that for what its worth and as always circumstantially extrapolate.
GL and keep up the great questions.
