re: Poker & Reraising preflop in BB with No Fold Equity?
this depends on my hand and how well i think it does against buttons range. if i think i have a edge or at least break even against button's opening range, then it's in my interest to guarantee i see all 5 cards and jam it in. this is so i a) realize my true equity and b) maximize my value.
if i think my hand doesn't have an edge over buttons range, then i might opt to call, jam flop instead.
There is stop and go "weapon". Call and then shove OTF. Some of the hands are suitable for this. You are not going to shove every time. Let's say you have JTs. Depends on the boards, you can shove, check-call (check-shove) or check-fold. With pocket pair or Ax hand you shove preflop with 6bb for "value". You don't have FE, but whatever. You have equity, invested money, pot odds.
