Over the weekend I've been thinking about the importance of the blinds in 6-max hold'em. You pay 1.5 BB's per 6, which is 25 BB's per 100. That's right around the win rate of a good player. So, at an aggressive table, if you didn't defend your blinds, you'd be giving up a fortune. On the other hand, against passive/tight players, stealing their blinds can win you a fortune. Unfortunately, defending you blind means playing mediocre hands out of position against the raiser, which is nasty.
