Shoulda asked me B4 you tried this 'General... I would have have informed you as to how some of my
past "failed" experiments ("frankenstein monsters" more like it...) turned out... lol... Like you said, keep bluffing, if any, to a minimum at the micros, unless you know your opponent's tendencies...

Blind stealing is good if you don't have a calling station left to act behind you (always have them on your right) and steal from nits constantly (when they are on your left).
Good advice. Although, I always seem to to end up being card dead with the maniacs & calling stations sitting to my left and the nits sitting to my right...
