      I have to confess that I also push with AQo in this situation.

      I think the basic guidelines for calling are 88+/AJ+ so you should be fine. You don't have BB vs steal stat yet but from his other stats you can assume that he's probably not extremely tight. Also by taking a look at his ORL stats you see he gets agressive in blind steals (the number is not accurate on this sample size, but the tendency is already shown). By my eperience those that steal a lot are also a little more loose with their blind defending.

      And if you steal a lot raising just 3bb from the button will make your steals cheaper. On NL25 is probably the right time to start employing this.

      Hi,

      Thanks. That's a good tip about the ORL of the opponent :)

      When does someone steal a lot? My overall ORL is 15%, but it is dependant of the players in the blinds.

      My att to steal is around 30% I do however have a very different range according to the blinds stats, so I steal form 10% to 100% against some.

      NH, calling with 88+, AJ+ should be fine as RahXephon said.

      You always have to adapt your stealing range to your opponent, if he calls you too loose, or if he 3 bets you too loose, you have to tighten up for instance. I think that an ORL from 20-30% is quite alright.

      What is your ATS, VPIP/PFR ?
      It all depends on that more or less

      But in general AQo is way above a resteal range so shove it

      Best regards,
