Hand Selection Preflop vs Table Image
So this is more of a generic question rather than something that is associated with a specific hand. I generally try and keep a tighter image at the tables I am at, so that I can have some success with bluffing
if/when I choose to do so. However, occasionally I have had situations where I will run into a rush of cards from early position or the blinds that I can't really lay down (ie big aces or big pocket pairs), followed by small suited connectors when I get to the button/co.
When this happens I tend to just fold out the small connectors, even with position, knowing that my image will get shot if I play them, and if I do play them (read open raise), I'm going to get 4-5 callers and I better hope I hit the flop hard. So my question is, does anyone else do this or should I abandon this practice and start playing them since I would normally play them with position and being the first to raise?
