      What's a good value for VPIP in the small blind for a 6 handed game with blindstructures:
      1:2
      1:3
      2:3

      1:3 should be the lowest and 2:3 the highest, but what values can be considered ok?

      Let's change this in a what's ur VPIP in the sb post.
      I'm currently playing a 2:3 game with 33.7 VPIP in the SB. I'm really curious about this because I think my VPIP in the sb is too low.

      Uh, it's impossible to answer that in a vacuum since whether you play a hand or not in the SB heavily depends on the action before you

      However, in the advanced pre-flop article there are clear recommendations for SB play.

      In general, with a 2/3 SB, you can play any two cards in an unraised pot!

      In a raised multiway Pot, you should play it a bit tighter than the BB.

      In a raised pot with just 1 villian, you should defend the 2/3 SB more loosely than the 1/2 SB.

      And finally, the 1/3 SB should be played just like the button.

      Wow thats tight :)

      Matthias mentioned that in his BR thread too but i guess not that tight. Q5s, Q4s, K5o, Q7o, T9o, 98o, etc are really a fold? (3/6$ is 1/3)
