      Yes............

      Although these are called Rush - there is no need to rush :D

      A) Enter early and play real tight - fold quickly and play as many hands as possible whilst the blinds are low.

      B) No need for fancy plays - you will get paid off

      Early Stage
      C) Raise/reraise - AA/KK/QQ/AK

      D) Raise/Call JJ/TT/99

      E) Limp 88-22 - trips almost always get paid off and are very profitable

      F) By level 10 you should have 4-6 times starting capital

      Mid Stage

      G) 3 choices depending on stack size
      1) Small Stack - very aggressive - you'll be blinded out soon otherwise
      2) Medium Stack - tight wait for premiums and steals
      3) Big Stack - aggressive, use your stack to bully others

      Approaching Bubble

      H) 3 choices depending on stack size
      1) Small Stack - Go for the double up - aggressive
      2) Medium Stack - slow down - don't quick fold, use your time, play premium hands only, let others rush themselves out of the money.
      3) Big Stack - Loose aggressive will pick up a lot of free hands

      ITM

      I) Play as any normal tournament although keep an eye on the prize structure - in rush people can go out very quickly.

      Cheers

      Recently I'm playing rush on demand tourneys.
      1/3 times I'm able to get to prize places, but I'm always having hard time when it's like 15-20 people left. How should I play at this stage of tournament? Especially postflop. Cbet alot or ocasionally?

      No, I find them very swingy so more like 200 for comfort

      I tend to fold in early stages and play from late in mid stages when blind stealing

      Again it is dependent on stack size..............

      Low stack - not a problem - all-in or fold

      Mid stack - this depends on your opponents stacks - shorties will take you all-in for a coin toss and big stacks will reraise and cbet, donk bet - unless you have a premium hand try to avoid these situations - you will bleed chips.

      Big stack - bully the mid-stacks and coin flip the shorties.

      As for Cbets - unless I have a good read on the opponent (and know he will fold) I don't cbet unless I had a premium hand to start or unless I hit the flop - the stakes are to high to chase OESD and flush draws - missing them cripples you - I tend to wait for a better spot.

      Cheers Jass :D

      Thanks for reply! I'm trying it out. Although I still have an impression, that cbeting helps against semi-big/medium stacks. I mean if I had a big stack I would rather protect it and think twice before calling, not to loose my lead.
      And short stack have nothing to loose so I try to avoid -beting them.

      I have played nearly 2000 $4 and good regs will play back at your cbets when they are big stack, it is definately +ev for them :D

      You are too risk averse protecting big stack.. when the blinds go up you will soon be a shortie unless you exploit it
