      Lately, against the right opponents I have been including any suited starting hand and any two connecting cards (not including A2 or AK) if I have pot odds of 3:1 or better. I know NLHE is a game of implied odds but I find that very hard to estimate preflop and pot odds are even more secure. Is this choice going to come back and bite me in the ass? I have played just over 700 hands since including these and my win rate has increased quite a bit .. I understand that this is a small sample size, which is why I'm asking this question in the first place lol.

      Any advice is appreciated.

      it's marginal hands and profitability very depended on your postflop edge against opponents. in the long run it (alone/in vacuum) will not boost your winrate significantly. But it help your image too and your premium cards will more profitable too.

      That's why it's not advisable to play it at micro
