Losing your button a lot because you fold to a late raise or always three bet can lead you to always play for stacks wich isn't always our goal and reduce your time in position wich is where we make most of our money. I see this in LHE a lot, where nits will fold their button to a late raise or even open fold and they're losing tons of value this way because a lot fo their hands have them in MP or in the blinds where they don't have position.
If you're playing 60bb or less, I applaud you. If you're playing 300bb or deeper, you're probably missing on some value.
Good point about stack size. It really applies with standard SnGs stack sizes, but having something to draw with against big stack vrs big stack is always a consideration.
Last night paid the BB early (I know, not a recommended play but I'll do it sometimes when I sit down in the blinds) so I'm in the cutoff. Pot raise from mid, called by the next player, I've got K8s so I call because of the drawing possibilities and two players already in. One of the blinds joined the fun as well.
Flop the nut flush; AQ6 or something like that of my suit. Fortunately, or unfortunately, 1st caller pots the flop, so all I can do is call, hoping something comes that encourages him further since I know my call is going to scare him. Eventually make a small value bet on the river that he calls with his AK.
