Play loose on the button and tight in the blinds.

Why? Then button will run you over raising any piece of cheese.

He has two people to deal with, not just me, so the onus to defend is not entirely on me. It's not that personal, he is not running /me/ over with any piece of cheese. He is leveraging his position correctly and I am defending correctly. He has good position, I wait for good cards. We tie.

Top 25 to 30% of your hands should be about right. Don't get sucked in by the pokerstove guys.

I dunno. I defend my big blind against a steal just shy of half the time. The sample size is smallish since PokerTracker crashed on me at the end of last year, but I'm actually showing a *profit* of around a dollar a hand when opponents attempt to steal against me.

Nate,

How did you find that out? I would be very interested in looking at that statistic.

On PokerTracker, go to

General Info -->

Filters -->

and select the following buttons:

Under blind status - 'Big Blind'

Under Steal Attempted Against Your Blind - 'Steal Attempted'

If u are sitting in BB and SB fold when BB raises (which he does 80-90% of the time) BB has invested 1BB to win 1.75BB. If u fold 75% and he folds every time u call he will - in 4 hands - win 2.25BB and lose 1BB, that is, he will win 1.25/4=0.31BB/hand without even playing.

Look on Generaln info, more detail in pokertracker, it will tell u how much u defend
