      Hi guys

      I've made it to day 2 of a fairly large tournament (by my standards anyway) and the bubble is getting very close. I only have 16 big blinds left and really want to make the money (obviously). The thing is i qualified through a satellite and so even a min cash would be a significant win.

      What would your suggestions be in terms of how I play?

      Thanks

      Hi,

      Tighter than normal and pass on marginal spots where you could lose your stack if cashing is so important for you. gl buddy.

      Like already mentioned I would advice you to play tighter and avoid marginal spots. Depending on how many people are left until the bubble hits you can play little to no hands (obv also depending on how important the bubble is for you) or you will have to find some spot to steal blinds or even double up (if there are a few more players until the bubble hits). It's obviously hard to give you further advice without complete information.

      I hope I was able to help anyways.
