This is a discussion on BIG BLIND PROTECTION within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have a big problem defending against the steal, I canít bring myself to re-raise for defense. What can you advise.
You need to understand whether to raise or not he will steal your blinds and you will steal his stack.

re: Poker & BIG BLIND PROTECTION
If you are in the big blind and don't know when to call and when to raise, the best advice in this situation is to play on the card, if you have a strong hand you protect the blind, if you have a weak hand you fold.
In general, in order to bluff well and take the pot without showdown, you need to watch the game and the players very carefully.

agree with Alex's answer
information and a more or less good hand helps protect the big blind
but this is not always possible
