Fear situation Bubble
The exit on the bubble or verge is worse than the especially when evaluated at the beginning, tournaments to hourly rates. In the bubble phase, players are extremely nervous and it may happen that one or the other bad decisions that just because the situation is unbearable for him. The Big Stacks live only so long against each other until the short stack all-in. After that, they take care of him and not bet against each other so-called soft-play.

Note in the dangerous Bubble tournament phase the following:
1 ) First, you must logically be careful that you do not excrete. If you have a big stack, you can do that by simply waiting, or the fact that you try with your big stack to eliminate the small stacks, and so actively end the bubble phase.
2) With a short stack you have to be careful. Here it is, depending on the situation to play and just not to lose their nerve.
3) One can use the fear of the other players on the bubble very well for Bluffs. If you are in the phase brave and have a large stack, which can be very lucrative? Be careful, though!
4) As a big stack are not necessarily the smallest stacks at the table a worthwhile Bluff target. They could in fact hope for the opportunity to doublets. There is likely other smaller stack to go out.
5) Corporation play is common, and you should just join as a big stack quiet.
6) Think carefully about whether you want to break the tacit agreement when Corporation play by attacking the other big stack anyway. You must be aware that the other big stack will most probably no longer protect it. Think strategically! It, however, can also suddenly become more important to exclude the other big stack and thus to increase the own stack, than to eliminate the small stack.
7) Most practiced at major tournaments in the bubble phase hand-for-hand-play. This means that each table must play out the hand before the next hand is dealt.
