      I disagree.

      SH SnG's should be played pretty much like SH Cash games with adjusting to all opponents, just on the safer side from the beginning.
      It is easy to use your edge when its shorthanded and playing like a huge nit would be a waste (+the blinds eat more into you).

      Use ICM when you enter the regular zones. You could also look for the final table article which should provide some help at least

      In SH games, you can still play tight early on, you just need to appreciate that what might be considered loose in a 10 seater could be tight 6 handed if that makes sense.
      The value of hands like 1010+, AQ+, A9s+ go up a bit, imo.
      You also need to take account of the fact that you are either in the blinds or button 50% of the time so it doesnt make a lot of sense to play so tight that you dont play a hand in the first 3/4 levels and get to ths push/fold stage too soon.
      I generally like to play ultra tight level1 then will test the water and my image at level 2/3 with position only raises.
      Of course OOP, first in I raise any pair, A10+, Axs, KJ+.
      This might be a bit too loose for some btw so dont take this as the recommended line.
      6 handed I dont like calling much at all beyond level 1, prefering to raise or fold.
