Hi all,

Would be interested in your thoughts on strategy for the second phase of the Football Fever tournament. It's the first time I have made it to a 'Day 2' so would be interested in your thoughts as to the best way to play, particularly at the start!

As it stands there are 8132 coming back for the second phase, and I am 282nd with 95,094 chips. 6,095 are getting paid: my current position would get me $535.81 from my $27 buy in. Blinds start at 800/1600.

I would imagine correct strategy would be to play tight initially as lots of short stacks shove all in early on, and to then open up a bit more as we approach the money bubble.
