i check because:

- position sucks
- sometimes A8s hits the board hard, but more often you hit something marginal (a pair of As with a marginal kicker or second pair) in a pot you've bloated, and did i mention you're oop?

Better position or a better hand. And by "better hand" I don't mean high pockets and suited broadways, I simply mean a hand that I'm going to be able to play confidently after the flop...87s might meet that criteria, fer instance. (I know you know that I know that you know this, but I put it in for benefit of the next nOOb that reads this thread and responds, "ZOMGBBQELEVEN!!!111!1 You raise 87s from the BB?!"

Unless the opponents are a level of gawdawful rarely seen outside the 2/4 table at Commerce......

this was just discussed in a deucescracked thread, actually:

http://www.deucescracked.com/Poker-F...ssed-yesterday


here is my approximate range (in white, in case you want to play along in the DC thread): <font color="white">AA-TT, sometimes 99, ATs+, sometimes A9s, KQs, sometimes KJs.</font>
