This is a discussion on Raises from the blinds STRONG! within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Noticed that when I raise in middle or early position and get raised from one of the blinds itís a very strong raise. AA KK
Noticed that when I raise in middle or early position and get raised from one of the blinds itís a very strong raise. AA KK QQ sometimes JJ or AKSP. What hands are you folding? Calling with against this range? Found myself in tricky spots with AQ in particular. Any thoughts?
It's entirely dependant on the villain. Do you play with a HUD? I do, and if I see you opening weak cards from MP and it folds around to my BB or SB, I use the chance to 3bet and take down the pot. People are always watching out for button abuse raises, but they give much more respect to SB and BB raises.
