      I was wondering whats the theoretical basis for stealing ranges from BU.
      MSS chart tells A2s+, but only A9+. But equilator says:

      Player 1: 38.699 % 37.520 % 2.549 % 59.931 % As2s
      Player 2: 24.847 % 23.980 % 1.926 % 74.094 % random
      Player 3: 36.455 % 34.601 % 3.900 % 61.500 % random


      Player 1: 42.805 % 41.731 % 2.302 % 55.967 % As8d
      Player 2: 24.907 % 24.273 % 1.422 % 74.305 % random
      Player 3: 32.287 % 30.731 % 3.265 % 66.004 % random


      Player 1: 40.366 % 39.063 % 2.765 % 58.172 % As6c
      Player 2: 24.959 % 24.268 % 1.540 % 74.192 % random
      Player 3: 34.675 % 32.839 % 3.830 % 63.331 % random

      So why are we adviced to steal with worse hands?

      Maybe because steal means that u will fold if he play strongly back?!

      If that was a case than it wouldnt matter what hands to steal with. Only the frequency of steal attemps would matter.

      because sometimes people call your raises and when this happens if you have absolute air its always bad whereas when u hold like A2 suited you hold stuff that can potentially become strong, and win you pots.

      that said i think maybe a bigger steal range with suited connected could be profitable.
