      you can loosen up a bit in this tourneys preflop, the structure of that tourney actually allows a M>20 by just folding and taking the addon so there will be a ton of deepstack play after the rebuy period is over.

      Stealing and restealing should be done more often in a SH tourney, since is a very low rebuy tourney probably there are people shipping their stack preflop every hand, actually if you get a couple of great cards can go to the add on with a M>50 which should be great :) I hope people are as bad as the $3.3 rebuy

      the best you can do then is to cut the UTG positiopns out of your head ;)
      its six handed so open raise the same hands you would open raise from MP and so on :)

      same is true for resteals or reraises, a raise from UTG doesnt mean you cannot reraise with AQ ;)

      but dont be too lose, because many players will be very lose.
      try to keep yourself out of trouble with hands like KJ AJ and so on
