      I would like to know more about the BU calling range.
      Something like, if against a tight UTG open raise range or if fish on the blinds.

      If MP is tight at opening and BB fish is short I don't like calling with small suited connectors.

      Considering that you rarely flop well (and pairs are small when flopped) these hands need FE postflop which you rarely have enough of against players like the two above.

      So in these spots sticking to high cards, suited would be best.
