How strong of a pre-flop raise does it take for you to fold these hands?
I think you need to be ALOT more specific with your question.... ie. is this in relation to tournament play (if so... alot more info. needed too).. or cash game play. Poker isn't a black&white game where one can obtain a simple, straight-forward answer for something.... it is always situational - depends upon many factors.
ie. SC's (suited connectors) in MTT play, I might be raising 2.4x in MP, during mid-levels, I might be calling an EP rs & MP call in LP, or even in blinds. I might be shoving it allin over a CO blind stealer in LateLevels while sitting on a resteal stack of ~16bb's. I might open-shove otb w 11bb's..... I might be calling behind 4limpers on a loose passive fr cash table. In other words... "It Depends"
