Any help gratefully received

Depends on what you want from it, to cash and/or to try stay in it by finishing in the top 800.

Different ways to play according to your goal.

Check my blog as I shared what has worked for my goal and so far so good.

Super nit mode for the first 2 hours, super loose mode for the next part of the tournament.
Also you need to run well, if you don't win the flips you probably don't win any cash in the premier.
Slow-folding isn't that important in the premier, since play is more deep stacked, although it would probably be helpful on the money bubble.

I'm also going to say it depends on what you want from it as if slettuce said.

Open up tight is good, special the for the bottom -25% of the field because we know that when you arrive there thats a bad thing for your score.

I would like to try and climb make the leaderboard and make decisions based on that, you wont be able to do good in every single one of the tournaments but i think its important to realize you're playing for a scoring system. If you are #1 ranked in the current leaderboard (ovaral) you should make sure you do not ever bust before 50% of the field has dropped out or you'll loose points again, as a mater of fact if you have a big edge upon the second place in the leaderboard you might want to stop playing at all do avoid dropping points that month.

On a personal note i dont like the slow-folding mindset. I myself hate people who do this on my table, ok that it happens close to the bubble, people want to cash and i get that. But i just play my hands as they come as if i am supposed to play them.
Keep in mind by timestealing if you slowfold you are reducing the amount of hands you play, i myself assume i got a egde over the field i'm playing against (if you dont, you shoulnt play/drop stakes) so the more hands we play the more i'm favour to come out on top.
