every man for himself !!!!!!!!!!!!! although if 2 or more people call an allin then checking it down would be my only rule,i only bet in them situations if my opponent bets first no matter what im holding.

No, No, No, if I've got a lock hand, then I'm going to try to extract every single chip I can get my hands on. Checking down is the thing to do if it increases the odds of a player being eliminated, however, if I know I'm going to eiminate them already then I'm playing to maximise my return on the hand. As for general strategy - play to win. Your eye should be firmly on first place, unless there are a number of short stacks, all of whom are likely to be eliminated soon. For example, if there are 8 left, 5 of whom have an M20, then I'd happily defer to either of the other big stacks in the face of open aggression, since I'd be more or less guaranteed 3rd spot (and the larger payout) and still likely be left with enough chips to play properly when the field is down to 3. Equally, if the other two big stacks have any sense, they'll be thinking the same, so get your bets in when there's an unopened pot, but be aware that any of the short stacks holding anything half decent will be likely to go all-in (conversely, they may be all playing scared, waiting for the other short stacks to be eliminated first).

As stated above play to win, there is nothing worse than playing a game to come 19th or 20th and times your money by 1.1%, always play to win...

Once i'm in the money the game changes drastically. You do whatever you have to, to make it to the final tables, but once there the gloves are off. Aggressive play, slow play, trapsetting, friendly chatter. It's all there. I stay in my game and play like I know how to. Sometimes I finish well, other times I'm off in 9th. Just depends on how well I know the players on the table. Usually I see a few players I know throughout the tournament, and occasionally one or two on the final table--or single table tournaments.
-------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope to break even this week. I need the money.

I think same like S'nG rules. There is only one difference, stacks and blinds could be very high. So keep an eye on m8s and when a short stack goes all-in, try to deciede wether it's a blind steeling or a real bet, measure your cards and do your best.

The best strategy at a final table is to just sit there and do nothing until in positon or a good hand somes to you. Fold AQ, AJ,KQ,KJ they are sucker hands also fold 33,44,55,66 at final tables. GL everyone
