Don't you hate the "it depends" advice? But... it does
When I began, I stuck to strict preflop charts, but as you gain more experience... All you gotta do is simply play better hands than your opponents.
That means: If 'X' is opening K10o, you should (theoretically) be re-popping KJo. In other situations, where his opening standards are stronger, AJ needs to be mucked.
You'll never completely figure it out, and there are no perfect answers... there's only the process of TRYING to figure it out!
Have fun w/ that process.
