      Hello,

      I would likely not prefer to open-raise such hands from MP2, kinda hard to play. As played, depending on the villain reads you have, if you know that he is capable raising here any two and have been a maniac on table and tilting then I might Call here but without any reads it's fine to just fold the hand.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      SHC says raise em from MP1 but I fold it from that position. MP2 is ok I think, but its true, you can get in tough spots.

      I do it so as not to be so readable.

      Ye, sure your point is nice but I don't really think that there are that many opponents who make such reads. I am not saying that it's wrong to raise from there but such hand very often brings you into trouble. You could check yourself at starting hands and see if your ATo is profitable from MP2.
