      Hi.

      You probably should. These low suited Aces have some gutshot potential as well so you should be able to have many double barreling opportunities on the Turn.

      Flop is a possible spot to play back at SB. I highly doubt he has something too often, especially when he is defending from SB. But he could easily be a fish as well with many 9X in his defending range. Of course, folding is fine without reads.

      Thanks.

      Vs tight ranges, A2s-A5s > A6s-A9s (like when you open from early positions). However, vs looser ranges, A6s-A9s could be better than A2s-A5s, since 6-9 can flop stronger one pair type of situations (such as in Headsup).

      I think it's really fine to open all suited Aces from all positions in a 6max game. But make sure that you have the postflop game to back it up. I would argue that A6s > 67s so I usually open all suited Aces but fold the lower suited connectors from all positions. Though sometimes in UTG when there are 2-3 aggro players behind me I just open-fold it.

      Thanks.
