I have read a few comments and everyone keeps talking about table image. Micro game, table image is non existent. So When card dead and there is TOO much action, Call you blinds.
Sounds tough I know, but you must think this pot odd wise sometimes. Lets say 6 players are Hyper Agrressive. Your in the BB with J7d. UTG x3 and 3 others call and you are next to call.
Yes this is a bad hand, Yes this is usually a fold. But the players are playing to agressively, to hyper, so they will have just a bad if not worse range as you as well.
So calling your BB and SB more often is actually not so bad here because you are calling 2BB to win 12 ( not including antes or SB )
Sometimes you have to take into account of the odds the pot is giving you. We allways call a Short stacks all in with ATC when it is 1-3 BB ( Well your sopose to :P ) And you are not even getting the best pot odds
, however thats another topic.
So when Dead. Play your blinds more. Obviously if there is a raise, RR RRR then fold. You still gata be observant.
Stealing more is hard when the table is active, I know I been were you have. I am a tight player. You have to be in MTTs Dont care what anyone says. Very few Hyper players do well.
So steal of course when you can. But do not always do it from the button, cut off, Try the SB more, it is bad position, but at the same time people ( competent players) know that no one wants to play the SB so if someone IS, they should know it must be a good hand to play.
hope this helps
