Personally I like to play a bit loose. This way you CAN get lucky (not gueranteed ofcourse) and the blinds are not that high so you can miss a few chips. Later in the tourment you can tight it up and lots of people will still think that you are that loose guy. So they will give you their chips back and at that moment the amount of a bet are much higher.

Every day I take part in tournaments for 6-8 thousand participants. The prize fund is only $ 10, so I'm not worried at all and play. Of course, where the tournament is a chance to win then I play pass, waiting for good cards

It all depends on what kind of tournament it is. If each freeroll vyberaem what he likes. I personally freerolls play tight and when I try to map a premium to get the greatest benefit with a raise before the flop. But caution can not hurt. You need to look like an opponent responds to a raise after the flop.If another tournament with a cash entry, then definitely need to play tight and look for opponents. Only with good premium card play tough. Only short fold, fold, fold.

I've been getting great exploitations in MTTs, below 4 $ ... even I won the big 2,20 1680 field Thursday ..

I like to play well NIT the beginning it just go into very strong hands to fold the stack because 90% of the time you will get called to the river ...
when the blinds in this 150/300'm already in the top 100 and 20k chip stack in this phase can already explore smaller stack and open up the range ...

I think I play a lot of hands and limping at first will only affect your stack ...

below is my range of start of the tournament

I play at the beginning very much тайтово and that at you not was temptation is admissible to make call ALL in with KK,AK, just you transfer the stack to big blinds
