There are so many other factors involved it would be a mistake to just decide one way or the other. The great thing about position is not only can you make more money with smart play, like being aggressive with any cards at the RIGHT time, but you can save a lot of money by folding what started out as strong preflop hands that got ruined by juicy board textures against the wrong opponent.

I prefer the latter one which is being TA.
But add of course playing with position on my repertoire.
Agree above, mix it up since poker is dynamic and situational.

I don't think you want to play every pot when you have positional advantage. You can loosen your starting range a little bit, but you should still only get into hands where you have an edge.

my mind tells me if you begin to play agression - play it all the board.
That's the right desicion
