I haven't played enough Rush tournaments to have a feel for which approach allows you to see hands but still preserves your stack. What's the consensus on how you manage your clock post-ante?
With a large stack I am quick-folding in order to steal the blinds.
With a small stack I am usually quick-folding in order to find a place/hand to shove in order to double up/steal the blinds.
imo, I am usually always quick-folding unless like I have 250 chips and we are 1 away from ITM.
But a min-cash is like 1.5 BIs, so I think playing more hands/stealing more blinds is bigger than the loss in antes + blinds that you would pay.
