If you're asking why I suggest you might do better playing tight even late in a low-stakes tourney, it's because if you're patient, you'll often find spots where you have a huge edge against bad players. If you're impatient, or if you play loose, you'll more often end up with only small edges. So while you have some chance of building up a big stack that way, you also have a much higher chance of going broke. At higher stakes, you can't find as many spots where you have huge edges, which means you can't play quite so tight.
