preflop bet sizing - more or less?
i'll just mention beforehand that although the authors were talking about different situations (phil raising when you're first in and the poker listings article about three betting), i think this still applies.
so i was reading phil gordon's little green book, and it was talking about raising preflop. he said you should raise 2.5x-3xBB in early position, and the later position you have, the more you raise because you have a positional advantage. when i read that, i remembered an article I had read last year that stated the opposite. this article claimed that to compensate for your positional disadvantage, you need to raise 4xBB in early position, and less in late position. ignoring the types of players a table could have, which one of these philosophies is correct?
