|It's just your big blind - it's not that serious|
While I normally tie in the tenets of poker and game theory into daily life, this is going to be a minor strategy post (cue clicking over to different browser tabs now) about something that's been bothering me lately: blind defenders. Yeah, I'm talking about you, you lifetime live tournament leatherass, who's played more days of poker than I've been alive. Yeah, I'm talking about you, you scared life nit who never passes up a discount sale at Macy's and watches "Extreme Couponing" while snacking on your two-for-two-dollars bags of Ruffles. This post... is for YOU.
For awhile, defending your blinds has been pretty cut-and-dried explained to me as a leak: When you call out of position from the small or big blinds with a weak hand, you are out of position for the rest of the hand – end of story. Or is it?
