one gapper suited connectors
other hands you would consider? and how much of a raise depends on it?
some opinions would be greatly appreciated
Is this for a tournament? Cash?
I will go ahead and give my input for cash, because that is what I play most.
In cash, some people like to "defend" their blinds. This is stupid. It is just a blind, and you will have terrible position postflop. Even against maniacs it is silly to risk chips OOP when you can fold for so cheap.
In cash games, I play it pretty tight out of the blinds. I would only 3-bet big hands, and only call a raise with A-10s or better. Even A-10s is kinda poopy out of the blinds, but it depends on the raiser.
If it is a cash table, I would not be calling with speculative mediocre hands. Just let the blind go and fold.
As always, just my opinion. Take it or leave it.
