So you can steal more and fold when played back at because the player wont be playing back enough to actually stop your steals showing a profit.
Where a lot of people go wrong is they start stealing a lot and start to see people trying to play back. They then think .. he must be playing back .. I need to do something and that is when you lose money.
People rarely play back enough to prevent you from stealing with ATC from the button, folding to any raise without a decent hand and still show a profit.
Some bonus tips...I like it! Thanks.
1&2 - I actually acknowledge that I don't do either enough, but I have been working at it.
So I can really steal profitably with any 2 cards from the button?
And when I resteal I usually do it against someone who's been raising my blinds multiple times or against someone I have data on (ie. high VPIP and PFR numbers). And I've usually been raising about 3X their raise. Are either of these corrent or at least partly correct?
