I would like to know the shoving range if we have around 10BB in early position on the final table with 9 players,. Is it the same range if we were not on the final table? Or should i play more tight?

get used to playing more tight and watching the levels of the players who are on the table. thus thrown menas possible hands and playing cards with Class A and not forgetting your position...

you're two away the money be carefull... let's see i we're in 7th and we have two players with less chips, let's hope they will be eliminated first.... Turbo is normal be a short stack... Only shove good hands in the buble...

Yes, when you're down to 10BBs, your shoving range is pretty much the same in EP if you're on the final the table or a table right before it. Though, I think ICM could play a crucial part in your shoving range against severely short stack once you are on the final table, but for the most part, the range is very similar. Whether to push/fold is dependent on our stack and not how far away from the money/final table you are.

Those saying to tighten up, hope players get knocked-out before you, and you can fold your way into the money/FT is giving such poor advice. Min-cashing is so insignificant to your BR that bubbling before it should not even bother you. Your goal should be to win and you need to take the best approach to get to the final table with a decent stack in order to win it and tightening up isn't it.

Keep in mind that MTTs are so top heavy that setting yourself up to make the final table with a decent stack not only increases your chance of winning, but gives you a much more significant ROI. That win will offset all of the bubbles you've had in setting yourself up for the win. Lets say you play a $1 MTT with a $200 for 1st prize pool. Even if you bubble 45 games in a row setting yourself up to reach FT with a big stack, a win will offset those loses. You'd have to min-cash a large number of MTTs in a row just to make the same ROI, which is impossible.

My range of hands in your case would be limited to the top pairs, suited connectors and no bluff.

only 66+ AJo+ A9s+ KTs+ QTs+ JTs , but if blinds have deep stack and they lag's, you have to reduce the range of hands. Yes. it's same range, you need trying to win the first three places.

I think it depends on how many get paid.. but the shoving range should only be in desperation mode and how many get paid... but you play to win not to min cash so if you have a jammable hand then do it...

In this case play tight and carefuly. If good cards appear attack!

This really depends on what strategy you're playing. Do you play for wins or getting into the $? You need to consider who the blinds are and table dynamics. Is 10bb a middle stack, are you the shortest, does one or a couple players have most of the chips? These are a few things to think about. But as a general default, my thinking here is go for the win.
