Poker Strategy

One more thing. I am curious as to peoples opinions of the following. Playing rush tourneys there could be two schools of thought. One thing I constantly see is people waiting out their time banks in MTTs until the 15-seconds runs down and then moving on. So the first question is are they gaining any advantage. If say I click "Quick Fold" 5-8 times for every time they do then do they gain by not hitting the blinds as much. I know that algorithms in the rush software make it so the person who has seen the least amount of blinds gets hit next.

Very good MTT players would say no. It is in the MTT players advantage to see AS MANY hands as possible. It gives them the chance to make the double ups and chip accumulation and even steals necessary to win. Seeing less hands equates to less chance to win. Often times when someone stalls a ton good players will berate them.

So which side of the fence are you on here? Which gives the biggest advantage?

Let's throw in a little extra information now. If the ante is in effect does this change the equation massively? Does it make the quick table changer have a disadvantage? Since he is paying more antes? Should you slow down your quick folding at the end of these games when the antes kick in or keep playing the same?

I have been mulling these things over lately...

definitely fold a lot early, once the antes come in or your stack gets short start playing more hands
