Def no optimum. It all depends on what part of the tournament, the type of tournament, relative stack sizes, image, # of players at the table etc etc etc... plus personal style.
A super tight/nitty player (like yourself) probably plays around 10/8 or so for VPIP/ PFR. (I find that aggression stat useless myself) I pulled your stats from todays bodog
CC tny, and at some point while we were 3 handed you'd played 14 / 11 over 91 hands. That is extremely tight especially considering how long there was short-handed play.
As reference, I tend to definitely not play tight when everyone else is nitting it up and I was playing something like 32/26 over the 200 hands I had played in that tournament.
Oskool, the 3rd guy at the table was more like 24/7.
What's that all mean? I was playing LAG. You were playing TAG and Oskool was playing weak-passive.
So as you can see, from th results of one tournament, clearly there is no optimum. (Though no offense to Oskool, but I you want your Raise % to be around 75% or more of your VPIP, or else you are playing passively. I wouldn't recommend his stat line, it means he was calling a lot preflop and seldom raising. ANd we all know that aggression is what wins)
