Default PFR - does stack size/position change anything?

Here at 2+2, we know how sucky it is to play a TPTK with AK OOP with a deep stack and similar hands.

We also love to remind eachother of our fpr,ulated 'standard PFR' (4x BB +1 per limper), however lately I have been trying to raise a little bit more when OOP with big hands because I just hate playing OOP and wouldn't mind a fold and picking up some blinds (even with AA)

good...bad...ugly?

I like adding a little to my raises when I'm going to be OOP for the rest of the hand. I also like to do this with suited connectors OOP.

don't like it. Trying not to play flops is not the best way to make money, yes AK is not easy to play oop most of the times, but it's still one of your most profitable hands for sure (even oop).

I like it & do it myself...but it's a double-edged sword because when you do get called you're playing a bigger pot OOP.

Certainly not every time, but once in a while. Gotta make things different every now and then. Of course, I don't do it at $25 tables, but every now and then I will at $100-$200 tables.

you have a good hand to play a very big pot, you're the agressor you can take the pot on the flop with a cbet and (this is the best part) you take your opponents implied odds when they're deciding if they should call your pf raises.
