"Shove AA, Fold QJ" is solid advice.

If only all tourneys were this simple.

Well, it is fairly simple, and can be summed up n a handful of words.

Tight early, aggressive late.

Alright Wilco, a question for you about your 6-handed table. You're the BB, holding AA. It's the first hand so everyone's got the same amount of chips. Five players before you go all-in. What's your action?

I'm calling in an instant, no questions am I ever folding AA pre in a normal STT. In a 50/fifty there is a reason to do so.

I generally give that advice but a STT is about changing gears according to blind level and opponents. In a loose table, I'm the rock but in a tight table I'll loosen up. 90% of my actions are determined by my opponents though and why I still make notes despite using Notecaddy and HEM.
