    Depends on what you have Id say what position your in how many people are on the table and in the tourney. But i think either Q's on up is a good bet though what do u think? What would you do.

    I think it really matter the position, it lets you play more hands that you might not have,and sometimes I win the blinds and a extra bet with risking less money

    You really want feedback on the difference between 2.5 and 3 bbs? There's really no diff, except maybe a minor psychological one against newbies.
    I'm not slurring my words. I'm talking in cursive. I believe the ladies find it to be quite elegant.

    2.5x is better because it's going to accomplish the same thing, just save you money if you a 3bet.

    its all dependent on tbl/player dynamics. sometimes ppl react differently if u change ur preflop sizing.

    well I have been trying it in the last couple of tournaments that I have played and using the 2.5x raise seems to work better. I found I can raise sometimes with pure garbage and fire a continuation bet and take down the pot. and when I get called I could stop and lose the minimum
