It is something simple plays tight and strong do not be afraid to bet or fold a hand almost always ITM You will enter this phase but it should vary your game much would be a very easy prey to always play good hands playing

If you play tight it's doesn't mean that you will be winning tournaments. To win tournaments you must play more advanced poker. You have to exploit players and not play only the same way...

Only playing tight in a tournament will not get you big wins. More times than not you will not only have to get lucky but you will have to get aggressive and choose good spots when the blinds are high enough to make a difference. This is called changing gears. Take notes on people and make them make mistakes or get out of your way! I wrote a simple strategy a llloooong time ago but it is outdated now...

Hey man, I would play only the top 15 20% of hands in early game. but I think it's less about hand selection for you at the moment. i think your best bet would be to learn how to recognise and differentiate between the three stages (early, mid and late) in MTT's. if you get used to when the dynamics of the tournament are shifting it means you will be able to better exploit your opponents for their play styles.

I could write pages on each section, but to sum up;

Early Stage. Play really tight. fold anything that isn't in top 20% of hands. don't bluff. don't assume anyone is bluffing. Bet big for value.

Mid Stage. Be aggressive. widen your calling and opening ranges. look for sweet spots to steal blinds. take note of other players tendencies.

Late stage. take advantage of players tightening before the bubble. look for good opportunities to bluff. be more aggressive defending blinds. look to isolate the smaller stacks. Really open up when you breach the bubble.

hope this helps! if you're looking for a good hand chart, have a look on poker professor they have one that i use all the time and really keeps me disciplined with my hand selection!

it all depends on type of opponent that you are against .
track what they do in which position and how then open raise or flat .

villian - 10% range tight .25% tight + Broadways + some suited connectors etc


for example
3x raise from co assume a range .this can be done by equilab software .

mid stage - avoid making mistakes by being tight . loose up your range based on villain type

It's not enough to play tight in these tournaments. Are your bets enough good? What about with your opponents at the actual table ? What kind of players are they? How many tournaments did you played to say that you have weak results ? As you can see a lot of things influencing your results , so play more and more . Collect experience, notes about players and watch some videos where the players like you are playing MTTs with your preferable startegy.

I think you're kind of new to poker so I suggest you read a few articles online about basic game strategy for mtts/stts. You can find lots of useful info on cardschat too. On top next to forums, click on strategy articles. First learn how to use basic maths, statistics and learn bet sizing, position play. Keep learning you'll find millions of articles that'll help you in your game and you can find out the commonly played hands in different situations and positions.

For extra info I'd suggest reading phil gordon's little green book.
Hope this helps. :)
