I may get flamed for this but I think you have to play hands like this once in a while. If you have a tight image and throw in some hands that dorkus would say fold preflop to, and you hit the flop, no one is going to put you on having those cards and lots of money should come your way.
What does Doyle say in his commercial, 'Don't be afraid to go out on a limb cause thats where the fruit is'.
Anyway I am not advocating playing like a donk just throwing in some hands you might not normally play if the price is right and/or you are a much better player post flop than your opponents.
hmmm does my reply really have much to do with you post, not much, but I started a rant and then I finished it! lol
That's something I save for cash games, but even so, I'm never raising utg with this hand.
This was a sng, and I never gamble with hands like this in sngs unless i can get in from a blind because I just don't have the chips or the time to recoup a loss with this type of hand.
Though i do agree with the brunson theory of suited connectors - they are a great money maker when they connect, but they should be used very rarely in tournaments IMO.
