Played at the Wynn in Las Vegas and they allow button straddle.. with a twist. So preflop UTG is first to act. It goes around til the button.... and then get this... if action didn't change, meaning it hasn't been raised above the straddle amount - then the action skips button and the blinds have to act BEFORE the button! Really weird.
Anyway, I played with a guy who straddled every button and I was in the BB. When it was raised before it got to him I knew what to do. But when it wasn't and it often wasn't, I didn't.
I tried just calling the straddle. If I didn't have a hand good enough to raise but didn't want to fold it then I'd just call the straddle then the button would in 90% of cases pop it because I gave him an indication that my hand wasn't strong and I had the unenviable of calling his raise with a marginal hand OOP or donating the straddle amount.
I tried folding to the extra straddle amount and then I realized I was folding way too much and bleeding my BB to him.
It seemed like I couldn't win.
What would you do?
