All these decisions are different in rush.
Also how should one be playing 6 max rushes in the late game.. raise like mad? 6 match MTT rushes are tougher for me because the blinds are catching you at a greater frequency. I'm sure there is some advanced strat on how quickly (or slowly) to fold late on in these but have no idea what it is.
In rushes you have some control on how many hands you play as you can elect NOT to quickfold depending on your stack size and blind size. Is it optimal to always quickfold with trash throughout? As the quicker you fold the quicker the blinds hit you.
Also how does ones 3bet frequncy change in rushes..
Any thoughts appreciated.
I've thought about this myself when playing the few tournies I have played. For one, in the latter stages (last 15 of a 135-man say) I generally have leaned towards letting the action get to me before folding. Only because I've noticed others do it and therefore I'm impeding myself by getting blinded away quicker than the rest. If you do press quick fold and you are at a table on your own for a bit, I would advocate slowing down for sure. I would guess this would therefore apply to mid/late stage large MTT's also.
Early stage, quick fold away for sure. Think this goes without saying.
Lastly, I'm guessing that raising more would be best for the 6-max games. Dont forget, others will be doing the same so optimal stategy therefore should mean to 3-bet (4-bet also as a metagame play?) more liberally as well as oppo opening range will be very wide?
