Depends on player but playing OOP with marginal handss pretty much sux. I think it would be better 3betting most villains who are thought were light there rather than flattin.
Probably like 3bet>fold>flat imo

re: Poker & On the blinds
I agree, it depends. It depends on the player (have they been aggressive and overplayed marginal hands, have they been picking on your blind every time). Another depends on your chip stack. If you are short stacked, you may just push all in with it and hope they were raising with a week A or smaller connectors. So it really depends on the situation, who is raising and your chip stack.

if i can get heads up with someone in a pot i will call with almost any 2 cards because i like my chances heads up after the flop, it also depends on how aggressive the player i am against is, i will probably avoid that situation against a hyper aggressive player.
