    "If for example an opponent from MP1 raises and you are holding ATs then you can see that you should call.

    You should first raise here AQ or better. If you have AJo you must fold your hand, you only could have called with KQ."
    -- End of transcript --

    According to the graph/table if you have a AJo you shouldn't fold as said in the video but call - the graph shows that when in MP1 you should call with ATo or better and raise with AQo or better - AJo is better than ATo but worse than AQo therefore you should call.

    Hello tomahawkpt,

    My apologies for this, you are indeed correct and it was my error to say AJ:
    It should have been KJ offsuit as per the chart illustrated here.

    kind regards

    When being in small blind. Should I only refer to "Calling from the small blind without any pre-flop raises" chart and never raise when there are limpers before me or should i also look into "Actions against callers in front of you – Calling/Raising" chart?

    Hi LM2443r!

    When in the small blind, you should use the "Calling from the small blind without any pre-flop raises" chart for calling, you should however still raise your strongest hands for value. The "Actions against callers in front of you – Calling/Raising" is independent from your positions, so you can use it from the SB as well as a guideline, however you should tighten up a bit with raising, especially if you are not perfectly confident about your postflop play, since you are going to be OOP which is a big disadvantage postflop.

    Hi, I've read the article and watched the video, and in none of them is said what to do when you are the big blind and there were callers and raisers before you.

    Should I use the same "big blind defense" chart? Or should I use the "Calling/Raising with raises and
    callers in front of you" chart? Or should I use both? If so, how should I use them?

    Hi robin!

    An openlimping range is always weaker than a range they call a raise with, so limpers are usually just dead money. That said you could safely use the Big Blind Defense chart.
