I come here with a question and see if anyone can help me with this .
In several MTTs I start the game very well , I'm accumulating chips and playing in a more comfortable way. But when the bubble is coming I start losing chips to an unbelievable way , or I end up being the bubble of the tournament or I go into ITM and fall when I'm signed in ITM . Does anyone have any tips on how I can improve my game on the bubble ?
Pot control keep the pot small without a big hand and aim to steal blinds and ante's. Most players will tighten up rarely playing a pot in order to cash. Think about the big picture we aim to WIN the MTT not to min cash.

stealing blinds is really important here. one round of blind stealing gives you some cushion to wait out hands if you are with a short stack. never try to bully a big stack or a short stack, big stacks usually call with rags and so do short stacks. mid stacked players feel comfortable as they see people below them hence easily release hands with some pressure
