I believe that tournament play should be very agressive and sometimes reckless.  I'd rather pick spots than get blinded out.

I don't think you should ever be reckelss or over agressive. I think being agressive is a great style a play. I play agressive and it pushes the tight players out of a lot of hands.

aggressive: yes
reckless: hell no

if you lose a big hand in a tournament then often it is lights out. you used the correct phrase yourself - pick your spots.

It's a combination of the two.......pick your spots carefully and be aggressive when u do

I definitely would never condone playing recklessly, but selective aggression is the way to become a winner.  Reckless play will do nothing but put you in the fast lane to the rail.

Well it depends on your goal. If you think that you have to accumulate a lot of chips early to have any chance, I would suggest playing looser then you normally would. Get some chips then tight up later and steal more when others tighten up to much.

the problem with being aggressive is that in small tourneys or freerolls, people will call that with junk, and if they get lucky will call you down till the river (which can lead to pounding one's head on the keyboard lol)
