I play in an extremely loose 1-3 NL game. Lots of limpers. The buy-in is $100 to $500. Most people have about $300 in front of them. Button straddles don't seem to discourage the blinds from calling in a limped pot. In this situation, is a button straddle (to $6) a good idea if I am the only one doing it? It seems to me that, since most people are making bad decisions preflop, a straddle is going to magnify their mistakes. I realize that this reduces the skill advantage after the flop, but most people's primary errors are before the flop in this game, especially if we are 50bb deep, which makes their loose calls preflop even worse.
