Calling from the small blind
I'm wondering,.. how often do you call from the small blind (ie. if say just the button has limped in, do you call with any 2 just about?).
I'm thinking that this is a leak in my game because I'm probably folding from the small blind too often (it's all game dependent of course, who's on the table, what game I'm playing, where we're at in the game, my image, playing styles of other's, stack sizes, etc. etc.). But generally speaking, what percentage of the time are you calling from the sb and what requirements do you have for making the call (if any).
ie., I just started playing some turbo sngs for a change the past couple of days and have been ITM 70% of the time (yah.. a good thing for a change as I don't play alot of sngs anymore and have always stayed away from turbos but have recently been enjoying them). It was still fairly early, 7 left in it, button a very tight player (TAG) limps from the button, I fold Q-6o on the sb,.. flop comes Q-6-6 (groan... ). Is it an auto-call here or do you figure on having something that will play decently on alot of flops (gappers, std.A-x, sm prs., 2-broadway cards... something.... say top 50%?.. idk?). In the turbos I'm trying to conserve my stack as much as possible and not wanting to donk off any chips unecessarily.
So.. what percentage of the time do you call from the sb or what pot odds
do you want to be able to make the call? I hate playing out of position so in a raised pot I'm folding obviously almost all hands unless I've got something I can play back at them with (or a re-steal, etc. depending upon.. ).
Question though is (I guess?), what do you need to call.. and approx. what % of the time are you making that call?(I've read stuff like 65%,.. or from others who are actually calling almost 100% of the time).
... I suppose I should really be much more specific here with the question (ie. in a sng, what stage of game, or ring, or mtt... etc.),.. but just a general question here.... tks!
