Bubble typically refers to poker tournaments where a certain top XXX of players will win money (the term "in the money") and if you finish your chips before then, that means you win no money at all.

Bubble is at the time when there is only 1-2 players left to bust, and then everyone will be guaranteed a minimum winning. During this time players typically tighten up, since waiting for those 1-2 players to bust would then mean they would be in the money

No problems- you can get more info from google and other kakis. Usually in tourneys you would need to readjust your strategy prebubble, bubble and postbubble depending upon your chipstack, other players chipstacks, and their playing styles.

You cant stick to one playstyle the whole tourney due to the nature of increasing blinds, and the constant change of chipstacks.
