The value of high cards goes up, the value of small pairs and suited connectors goes down. And you should be willing to go all in preflop with a range much much wider than just QQ+ and AK.
What do you mean not that? I completely understand what you said(and believe it to also be true), but what Arjonius said was not wrong but completely true, especially imo at live tables.
Many live twits will call so many stupid open raise sizes sometimes just to see a flop because they are bored out of their minds. If you sit back and notice these players, you will want to raise bigger like Arj said, it's +ev for you. Last weekend at a $1/2 table the standard open was $15. Many times it is $6. But Saturday night had you opened for $6, the entire table was calling...
And also, I will never argue with the fact that you should buy in full
