And does anyone know the percentage that the pot is unopened until the button, short hand 6 max?

I think the other players have it correct:

If a player shows he Raises First In 50% of the time, that is 50% of his opportunities.

As to the % of the time that the first 3 players open-fold, just look at the reverse of their raising percentages.

In Equilab, the following are given as loose open-raising ranges for

MP2 -- 15.2%

MP3 -- 17.6%

CO -- 45.4%

So the chances of them ALL FOLDING are:

.85 * .82 * .55 = .38

roughly 38% of hands are unopened before the button.

If your table has looser or tighter players, then that all changes, of course.
