At full tables with a stack of 10 big blinds you have to act according to your position, as well as depending on the number of raisers before you. If you did not have to raise, play worth following hands:
1. Early Position: TT +, AQ +
2. Middle Position: 88 +, Ats +, AJ +
3. Cut-off: 66 +, A8 +, A5s +, KQ +, KJs +
4. Button 22 +, A2 +, KT +, K9s +, QJs +
5. Blinds: K5 +, K2s +, Q9 +, Q5s +, JT +, J8s +, T9s +
If you in the game until someone came with a raise to narrow the range acted out.
For less than 10 blinds there is much wider range.Almost always better to play a push without raises, but unless premium hand u can raise 3xbb
Just need to look at the table if there aggressive large stacks that could call KQs and u can push, if table passive u can standart raise, without any information about the table, it is difficult to advise you that.
