      Hey,

      Yes, I would open all Ax on the button.

      If there is someone that doesn't fold preflop in the blinds that's fine. You have A high IP so you will win at showdown way more than enough of the times. Your whole range will still be good enough to face him imo. If you have doubts and think YOU cannot play it profitable, tonne it down, steal less and make your range profitable. You can learn in time to play a wider range but the actual goal is to play profitably, not to play loose. If lagtard makes you money, play like that... If absolute nit makes you money, play like that imo. There's no right or wrong, you always adjust to maximize the profit you make.
