    Ya if people want to straddle UTG in my game that’s fine with me, but I’d rather not myself, it’s a losing play on paper so I won’t choose it unless it’s something the whole table will cycle through an orbit for or something like that.

    On the other hand, part of poker is putting yourself in spots where you are “less uncomfortable” than your foes. Some theory work on how to play straddles will give you an edge OVER THE FIELD – even if you are playing your B game while they are playing their C game you are still advantaged by playing a table-straddle.
