      I would like to ask, why the changes were made to the SHC lately.

      Like AQ fold in middle, if some1 calls before, even in middle, or button raise, fold in blinds ?

      Likewise suited Kx Qx is call, like smaller suited connectors.

      Mainly im asking the reasoning behind the changes.

      Strange indeed. Good questions.
      AQ is good enough ta raise on the middle even against 3 limpers. (I would open raise with that hand in any positition)
      That blind question is understandable. If BU is tight then you don´t have to always defend your blind and at new payer it isn´t very easy to play AQ on re-raised pot. (Against aggressive/unknown player you should re-raise pre-flop or fold)
      KQ isn´t that good hand, but limping is worse than raising. If you hit your top pair and SB or BB bets out- very hard then to fold your hand and you have no idea where you stand.
