Does anyone have any good strategies for these? I've only played a few so far and I've made some observations.

In the beginning, you can steal lots of blinds by opening with a raise from a late position and no one's going to think that you're doing it all the time because they probably haven't seen you before. But at some point you'll start to see the same players over and over again...

Once the bubble is getting close, it really comes quickly. If you're not sure about making it, just play a few hands really slowly and you're there.

One thing I'm not sure about is the "fast fold" option. Is it good to use it as much as you can and see more hands faster? It certainly makes multi-tabling more challenging.
