This is a discussion on Tournament Ranges within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; In tournaments when is ok to open up my range? Are there certain points in tournaments, stack depths, etc. that one does this?
It's fine to generally play a loose-aggressive style if that's what you're comfortable with.
