When playing online, does it not make sense to skip the blinds, and then post both the BB and the dead all in a single hand? It seems to me you're right before the button (so you have good position). You also put the same amount of money in, except this way you post it all in one hand (as opposed to two separate hands). It seems you would save countless dollars that you would've spent: (1) calling up to the BB and/or (2) catching some piece of the flop that compels you to stay in. If most of a players money is lost in the blinds, then wouldn't you rather have only 1 blind hand, instead of 2? Even if you pay the blinds you have to play them out of position. I'd rather be in position.
One possible downside is that you're losing out on playing the button, and you miss that hand. Let me know your thoughts.
Junell, from reading your posts you obviously know what you are doing and seem to be quite a good card player. That being said, why does it seem you are always worrying about irrelevant crap such as this or "sitting out" during online tourney games? Sure there are probably ways around certain things to grab a minute advantage (especially online), but to steal a line, "It ain't poker."
Junell, don't listen to that jerk. I also think you are a great card player and I love reading your posts about $5 sit n gos as well as your $.25 $.50 limit razz games. If the previous reader doesn't agree maybe he just isn't a high roller.
