My question is for a 9 person sit n go with 3 places paid. When down to 4, I always play to make the money first before going for the win. Do you find it more profitable to go for the win all the time (even if you bubble more at 4th) or is making the money first the better $ play?? Thank you.
This is a great question. The answer is that you shouldn't play to cash first. Instead, think about maximizing your EV each hand. This means being willing to go out in 4th by making a play if you're being compensated well enough for the risk. As an example, if you're second in chips and the chip leader shoves with 4 left then you should call very tight, possibly folding hands as strong as AK. Other times you might call it off pretty wide on the bubble because you're very short.
Thank you Collin - your time and expertise is so very much appreciated. I'll try my best to practice this going forward!

Busquet's stance is a good one for top pros playing against each other in a major bet like this. For any normal grinder, all you need to do is follow site terms of service. If a site allows something and it helps you, then great -- use it. In the case of charts for odds and opening ranges, most sites allow them and you should definitely take advantage of that.
Thanks for the response. The course has definitely helped my game.
