Planet Hollywood had something on December 30th (with Jamie Gold), where you could straddle from ANY position for ANY amount. talk about crazy. Check Planet Hollywoods Twitter page.
If anything, the straddle just adds good action to any game. If you straddle with a great starting hand, you can try to steal the pot. If you straddle with crap, you can either try to steal, ... or you can lose the hand ... or you may just flop a monster. You never know, thats why its so fun !!
