This is my first ever post so Hello DC, I hope to get to know some of you soon.
I have a question about my blinds defence as Ive Just had a bit of a startling discovery after doing some reviews.
First off my overall stats from the blinds are better than average over a large sample (2+ mirrion NL50/100).
But today I noticed that blinds vs BU/CO im doing badly (losing 15bb/100 SB and 75bb/100 BB)
Then I realized that alot of this is folding to steals so I added the VPIP = yes filter and now im winning massively (214bb/100 SB and 84bb/10BB)
Same with my BBvsSB opens - Im losing 38bb/100 overall but winning 113bb/100 with VPIP = True
(note, the above wr's are not from the 2mill sample, just the last 150k hands which is all I have access too - Im guessing its not as big overall but the point is I know i do better than folding)
This really shocked me, sounds obvious but surely this means I should be playing more from the blinds (I am pretty tight in this spot at the moment)?
I think im probably too tight OOP, defending only around 15-20% (calls or 3bets) of the time vs LP, BBvSB im ok with I think, defending around 30%
what is a good range to be defending vs a Tag LP steal of say 25/30% CO and 30/50% BU, bearing in mind I play pretty well OOP post flop. Ive always been pretty tight in this spot as this is one of the first things I learned but it seems I should be opening up somewhat, correct?
